Reviews

“Within the expanding interest in the role of methodology for how applied linguistics constitutes itself, this Handbook readily distinguishes itself for the expansive view it has chosen for circumscribing its domain – from wrestling with issues of knowledge construction, to the need for nuanced application of diverse methodological options, to the challenge of venturing theoretical, empirical, and practical interpretations of what our tools can yield. Its critically reflective stance will make it a valued source for emerging and established scholars alike.” (Heidi Byrnes, Professor Emeritus, Georgetown University, USA)

“The editors have assembled an international team of leading scholars and produced an impressive volume of know-how. It is masterfully balanced in terms of theoretical insight and practical guidance. The writing style is consistently lucid and warm throughout. It is an indispensable companion to anyone who is serious about applied linguistics research.” (Li Wei, Chair of Applied Linguistics, University College London, UK)
