Motivation, Language Identity and the L2 Self, Paperback Book

Motivation, Language Identity and the L2 Self Paperback

Edited by Zoltan Dornyei, Ema (University of Warwick) Ushioda

Part of the Second Language Acquisition series



Due to its theoretical and educational significance within the language learning process, the study of L2 motivation has been an important area of second language acquisition research for several decades.

Over the last few years L2 motivation research has taken an exciting new turn by focusing increasingly on the language learner's situated identity and various self-perceptions.

As a result, the concept of L2 motivation is currently in the process of being radically reconceptualised and re-theorised in the context of contemporary notions of self and identity.

With contributions by leading European, North American and Asian scholars, this volume brings together the first comprehensive anthology of key conceptual and empirical papers that mark this important paradigmatic shift.
