Research Methods for Complexity Theory in Applied Linguistics Hardback

Part of the Second Language Acquisition series

Hardback

Description

This book provides practical guidance on research methods and designs that can be applied to Complex Dynamic Systems Theory (CDST) research.

It discusses the contribution of CDST to the field of applied linguistics, examines what this perspective entails for research and introduces practical methods and templates, both qualitative and quantitative, for how applied linguistics researchers can design and conduct research using the CDST framework.

Introduced in the book are methods ranging from those in widespread use in social complexity, to more familiar methods in use throughout applied linguistics.

All are inherently suited to studying both dynamic change in context and interconnectedness.

This accessible introduction to CDST research will equip readers with the knowledge to ensure compatibility between empirical research designs and the theoretical tenets of complexity.

It will be of value to researchers working in the areas of applied linguistics, language pedagogy and educational linguistics and to scholars and professionals with an interest in second/foreign language acquisition and complexity theory.
