Using qualitative methodologies in research on formal L2 collocation learning

Abstract [en]

This article reports on a quasi-experimental study of formal L2 collocation learning focusing on intermediate level EFL learners in two Swedish high schools. The study aimed at investigating the potential for qualitative methodologies to account for the learning of target items (verb-noun collocations) in form-focused compared to meaning-focused treatment conditions. Using a pre-test/post-test design, the study utilized two verbal reports – introspective think-aloud protocols (TAPs) and retrospective stimulated recall interviews (SRIs) – to probe participants’ memory processes of learned target items as displayed in post-tests. The data was analysed using thematic analysis. Results showed that the introspective report as a rule put too much cognitive strain on participants in both conditions, while the retrospective report offered insights into the mental mechanisms of participants that had processed target items with an explicit focus on target forms. Implications for language pedagogy and further research are discussed.
