This course focuses on exposing students to best practices in language research. Students will be guided on how best to craft a research proposal and to avoid research pitfalls in doing research in either theoretical or applied linguistics. A research proposal will be the final outcome of the CA in this course and students will be discussing a wide range of current topics of research on the Malay Language. Both quantitative and qualitative research will be highlighted in the course. Students are expected to be adept at both approaches in language research and to extrapolate their findings to the workplace.
