Concepts such as dependability/generalization and inferences are
dealt with implicitly or explicitly in any research undertaken in
applied linguistics. This volume provides a well-balanced and
cross-disciplinary perspective on how researchers conceptualize
inferences about learner acquisition and performances as well as
dependability and generalizability of findings. The book is a
collection of chapters by prominent researchers in applied
linguistics, working in diverse domains such as vocabulary, syntax,
discourse analysis, SLA, and language testing. The goal of the book
is to bring attention to these issues, which underpin much of
applied linguistics research and to highlight what is considered
good practice so as to buttress confidence in the research claims
made. The book represents current thinking on fundamental research
concepts in applied linguistics and can be used as a textbook in
courses on research methodology in applied linguistics. The book is
also an excellent source of in-depth analysis of research
conceptualization for applied linguistics researchers and graduate
