Book: Applied Linguistics
Chapter: 6. Approaches to research methodology
This chapter presents a methodological approach that seems coherent with the epistemological basis, theory of communication and theory of learning presented in the earlier chapters of this book. The suggested methodological
approach is meant to serve as a point of reference for what it is believed to be the most pressing general agenda, the communicability and possible synergy in today’s maturing applied linguistics – current research beyond ‘linguistics applied’.
