Description

The Think-Aloud Controversy in Second Language Research aims to provide some answers to questions about the validity and use of think-alouds, verbal reports completed by the language learner during the performance of a task. It offers both an overview of how think-alouds have been used in language research and presents a meta-analysis of findings from studies involving verbal tasks and think-alouds. The book begins with the theoretical background and empirical research into the validity of think-alouds, then offers guidance regarding the practical issues of data collection and analysis, and concludes with discussions of implications and future research directions. With its focus on a much discussed data elicitation method in language research, this timely work is relevant to students and researchers from all theoretical perspectives who collect first or second language data.
