This pioneering volume brings together an impressive collection of studies on the applications of dynamic systems theory to the research of language learning motivation. Its strengths lie in offering new theoretical perspectives and groundbreaking methodological tools in researching motivation in various contexts. This book will prove to be a valuable and stimulating resource for anyone interested in the complex interplay of context, individual learner characteristics and processes of second language acquisition. Judit Kormos, Lancaster University, UKVom Verlag:
This landmark volume offers a collection of conceptual papers and empirical research studies that investigate the dynamics of language learning motivation from a complex dynamic systems perspective. The contributors include some of the most well-established scholars from three continents, all addressing the question of how we can understand motivation if we perceive it as continuously changing and evolving rather than as a fixed learner trait. The data-based studies also provide useful research models and templates for graduate students and scholars in the fields of applied linguistics and SLA who are interested in engaging with the intriguing area of examining language learning in a dynamic vein.
