This chapter focuses on the methods of research which especially fit the nature of multilingualism. The inherent properties of contemporary multilingualism, complexity, liminality and suffusiveness, call for apposite and emerging methods of research. Among the latter are methods of complexity science, as well as the use of metaphors, and conceptualization serving as methods of research. We argue that multilingualism studies could significantly benefit from the still less widespread, emerging methods introduced in addition to the remarkably broad array of traditional methods of research.
