Title: Experimental Methods in Language Acquisition Research
Edited By: Elma Blom
Sharon Unsworth
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 27

Experimental Methods in Language Acquisition Research provides students and
researchers interested in language acquisition with comprehensible and
practical information on the most frequently used methods in language
acquisition research. It includes contributions on first and child/adult
second language learners, language-impaired children, and on the
acquisition of both spoken and signed language. Part I discusses specific
experimental methods, explaining the rationale behind each one, and
providing an overview of potential participants, the procedure and
data-analysis, as well as advantages and disadvantages and dos and don’ts.
Part II focuses on comparisons across groups, addressing the theoretical,
applied and methodological issues involved in such comparative work. This
book will not only be of use to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate
students, but also to any scholars wishing to learn more about a particular
research method. It is suitable as a textbook in postgraduate programs in
the fields of linguistics, education and psychology.
