The difference between applied and fundamental or basic research is straightforward – findings of applied research can be applied to resolve issues, whereas fundamental studies are used simply to explore certain issues and elements.Moreover, differences between applied and basic research can be summarized into three points:1. and symbolic-critical disagreements in both, greater level of difficulty in distinguishing betwee, and symbolic sciences. This worldview is the perspective, or thinking, or school of thought, or set of shared beliefs, that informs the meaning or interpretation of research data. AU - Johnson, E. PY - 2006. Prescriptive research, like Evaluative research, is applied rather than theoretical. For these reasons, this inventory focuses on the previous decade in order to explicate, not only where we were; but how we got here, and where we may be going. A research paradigm is an approach or a research model to conducting a research that has been verified by the research community for long and that has been in practice for hundreds of years.

Within the positivistic research paradigm, a term coined 200 years ago, it is assumed that the only way people can be positivethat the knowledge is true is if it was created using the scientific method; hence, it encompasses the empirical methodology, meaning data is derived from experiment and observation (yielding supportive evidence) (Rohmann, 1999).

It has also been adapted into many other fields of study such as education (Gee, 1989), composition (Tricomi, 1986) and neuroscience (Kuhl, 2004). Understanding paradigm-specific assumptions helps illuminate the quality of findings that support scientific studies and identify gaps in generating sound evidence. theory as being universal, symbolic science, stead of the generalization of law-like rules, nd neutral, separating theory from the practical, Third, unlike empirical/analytic science, wh, vant across contexts, symbolic science is, symbolic science may use statistical methods, hich employs universal theory to deduce laws, thods and results as apolitical) and symbolic, al. Since applied linguistics is concerned with language problems as experienced in the real world, it might appear that the two areas of enquiry in effect converge into one. s everything it needs for critical science. To overcome these obstacles, this paper proposes a teaching strategy consisting of focusing the initial phase on a contrastive analysis of two methods, which stand at extreme positions on the methodological continuum in applied linguistics, namely, experimental design and ethnography.

The article starts with a brief description of the four components of a research paradigm: ontology, epistemology, methodology, and methods.

Moreover, given that the presentation of the differences between these two methods is not sufficient, the paper argues that this presentation should be reinforced by a foregrounding of the essential differences in problem statement in the two research traditions in question. It argues that in both cases what we have is linguistics applied whereby such problems are reduced and resolved by the imposition of necessarily partial linguistic account on the reality of language experience. The multilingualisms of the United Nations, the European Union, and postcommunist Europe are very different phenomena.
