The quantitative - qualitative dichotomy of research paradigms in applied linguistics has been challenged recently by mixed methods research approaches where both quantitative and qualitative data are collected and analysed in a single study. While the two data analysis methods are kept separate in much mixed methods research, the sub-paradigm of mixed methods data analysis involves mixing quantitative and qualitative analyses of the same, usually qualitative, data. In this paper, three approaches to mixed methods data analysis are discussed and illustrated through examples of their application in applied linguistics research.
