A comprehensive guide to conducting research projects in linguistics, this book provides a complete training in state-of-the-art data collection, processing, and analysis techniques. The book follows the structure of a research project, guiding the reader through the steps involved in collecting and processing data, and providing a solid foundation for linguistic analysis. All major research methods are covered, each by a leading expert. Rather than focusing on narrow specializations, the text fosters interdisciplinarity, with many chapters focusing on shared methods such as sampling, experimental design, transcription and constructing an argument. Highly practical, the book offers helpful tips on how and where to get started, depending on the nature of the research question. The only book that covers the full range of methods used across the field, this student-friendly text is also a helpful reference source for the more experienced researcher and current practitioner.


‘Everything you want in a research methods text: wide-ranging, well organized, informative and clearly written, with a good balance of practical guidance and critical reflection. It’s an invaluable resource for research students and those who teach them.’

Deborah Cameron, University of Oxford

‘This important and much-needed collection of cross-referenced articles on linguistic methodology covers all the main areas of research from data collection and processing to analysis. Podesva and Sharma have compiled an indispensable vade mecum for all researchers in linguistics.’

Bas Aarts, University College London
