Summary

This book brings together contributions from the leaders of the language learning motivation field and the varied chapters demonstrate how Gardner’s work can still be related to a diverse range of contemporary theoretical issues underlying the psychology of language, even today, 60 years after the publication of Gardner and Lambert’s seminal 1959 paper. The chapters cover a wide selection of areas in the language motivation field, including applied linguistics and second language acquisition, social psychology and sociology, and methodological and historical issues. The book deals with contemporary and cutting-edge topics in these diverse areas, providing a wealth of information for students and established scholars alike.
