MEDIA REVIEWS
This book uniquely draws readers into the world of the linguistic ethnographer and through a series of case studies each author coaxes us to walk alongside and by doing so challenges readers to critically reflect and engage with the research life-cycle on all its different levels. A refreshing approach! -- Frances Giampapa
This is the book linguistic ethnography has been waiting for. It is a thoroughly engaging, richly informative and hugely persuasive achievement that should be essential reading on all research methods courses. Aspiring linguistic ethnographers should ensure that the book is never far from their reach -- Keith Richards

This engaging and refreshingly jargon-free book provides the practical details that trainee researchers really need to know. It should be compulsory reading on research methods courses across the humanities and social sciences.

-- Dr. Janet Maybin

This book will be indispensable for anyone interested in seeing the social world through a linguistic ethnographic lens. Written in a highly accessible style, it offers a comprehensive guide to producing rich ethnographic accounts from field notes, audio recorded interactions, written documents and other materials. The book is packed with concrete examples and illustrative case studies reflecting the breadth and depth of an exciting new space for cutting edge research.

-- Dr Jeff Bezemer
