Abstract: This paper focuses on the key dynamic(al)systems theory concept of collective variables as it relates to developmental research in applied linguistics. Dynamic(al) systems theory is becoming prevalent in linguistic research and in the past two decades has jumped to the forefront of cutting edge in the field. One key concept in dynamic(al) systems theory is that of collective variables. In order to help properly orient this concept in the field of applied linguistics, this paper discusses the concept in three sections. The first section provides a brief theoretical background of general dynamic(al)systems theory, as well as the theory's place in linguistics. The second section introduces and provides a description of the concept of a collective variable as it exists in complexity theory. Finally, recent applications of collective variables in applied linguistics research are discussed.
