I was reading an ELL question, Is there any good methodology to help remember sound-alike words?, and I wondered about the use of 'methodology'. Would someone please affirm or refute it? Would that question have been more accurate if it used the word "method" instead? In other words:
Is there any good method to help remember sound-alike words?
I did some research on this, and found:
I understand methodology to be theory (it’s theory about the research methods that will be used), and I see methods as the ‘tools’ that are used to do the research.
Is my understanding accurate? Which would have been the better word to use in the title of the aforementioned question?
