Abstract

The chapter starts with a brief discussion of the concepts meaning and meaning making. It discusses how quantitative and qualitative research methods handle ‘meaning’ in data analysis. It examines the relationship between meaning and meaning making in data collection and data analysis. Different research methods treat meaning and meaning making differently. This variation reflects researchers’ view on what research is and their role in research. Meaning making takes place at different linguistic and discourse levels. The discussion focuses on competing discourses of meaning making in research.
