Qualitative Research in Applied Linguistics a Practical Introduction by Jaunita Heigham and Robert A. Croker pdf free download. Research is a quest, an attempt to better understand the complex worlds we live in. It is an endeavor that can have the highest possible purpose – to help others. In applied linguistics, this means helping language learners, teachers, researchers, materials writers, and program administrators gain a deeper understanding of the multifarious worlds of learning and teaching languages.

Qualitative research has evolved over the past three decades into a broad body of knowledge. Within its domain is a wide range of
approaches and methods that reflect not only the multiplicity of its root disciplines but also the diversity of contexts and purposes to which it is applied. You, like most people approaching qualitative research for the first time, may find this breadth overwhelming. We know this well because we have experienced it ourselves. As a result of that experience, we decided to create a practical book that might help reduce the anxiety novice researchers often feel as they begin their qualitative research journey.

Qualitative research is not just a body of knowledge, it is also a craft (Richards, 2003). It demands concentrated engagement with the participants in your study, and that engagement calls for an array of research skills. These skills are not necessarily difficult, but understanding, practice, reflection – and thoughtfulness – are required to develop them fully. This book is designed to help you build your qualitative research knowledge and skills. Each main research approach and methods chapter opens with an illustrative example to give you a snapshot of its entire research cycle.

That example is then woven throughout the chapter to show you how each element of the research process is realized in a qualitative research study in applied linguistics. Pre-reading and post-reading questions ensure that you have grasped the main concepts in each chapter, and tasks give you a chance to work with and reflect on your new knowledge. The chapters are written in a conversational tone to help you engage with the ideas offered within them, and accessible additional readings are suggested to encourage you to take your qualitative research journey further.
