Translanguaging strategies have emerged as a paramount area of inquiry within educational contexts and qualitative studies. The book "Multimodal Conversational Analysis (MCA) and Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA)," written by Kevin W. H. Tai and published by Routledge in 2023, presents a well-crafted and highly recommended source for second language (L2) researchers seeking a comprehensive guide to analyzing translanguaging practices in multilingual and diverse linguistic educational settings. It offers valuable insights for L2 teachers and researchers seeking to delve into the investigation and comprehension of the intricate process and underlying factors involved in classroom translanguaging. Moreover, the book presents a compelling exemplification of the integration of MCA and IPA analyses within the dynamic context of a multilingual classroom setting.
