Intended to provide practical information pertaining to methods and techniques for speech elicitation and production, the monograph offers specific methods and techniques to elicit spontaneous speech in bilingual students. Chapter 1, "Traditional Methodologies for Language Production and Recording," presents an overview of studies using various traditional approaches to elicit language. Chapter 2, "Interactive Language Research," offers some general concepts dealing with language research in the classroom and at home, i.e., in the normal milieu where children spend most of their time. Chapter 3, "Methods of Observation," offers some specific suggestions concerning the use of observation as a technique to record language samples. Chapter 4, "The Interview," presents techniques that can be used to maximize the use of the interview as a procedure to elicit speech. Chapter 5, "Elicitation Techniques for Spontaneous Speech," offers a listing of creative procedures intended to encourage children to participate in spontaneous conversations with peers, adults, and/or researchers. Chapter 6, "Qualifications of the Language Researcher," presents some minimal requirements that the researcher should meet in order to be able: to gather authentic spontaneous speech; to do language analysis; and, subsequently, to establish hypotheses and make inferences and predictions.
