Motivation, Language Identity and the L2 Self Summary

Motivation, Language Identity and the L2 Self by Zoltan Doernyei

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.

Motivation, Language Identity and the L2 Self Reviews

The book is sophisticated, and readers will have to be already familiar with the fundamental aspects of L2 motivation research. Nevertheless, it would be an invaluable aid to researchers seeking to keep up with the ever-advancing developments in the area. Susan C. Baker, Department of Psychology, University of Queensland, Australia in Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development
