Message 2: Socioling: Politics & Sociolinguistic Reflexes, M. H. Amara

Subject: Socioling: Politics & Sociolinguistic Reflexes, M. H. Amara

Politics and Sociolinguistic Reflexes. Palestinian border villages.

This sociolinguistic study describes and analyzes an Israeli
Palestinian border village in the Little Triangle and another village
artificially divided between Israel and the West Bank, tracing the
political transformations that they have undergone, and the
accompanying social and cultural changes. These political, social and
cultural forces have resulted in distinctive sociolinguistic patterns.

The primary explanation offered for the persisting linguistic frontier
found in rural Palestinian communities is the continuing social,
political, economic and cultural differences between Palestinian
villages in Israel, and Palestinian villages in the West Bank. In the
geopolitical and economic history of the villages, these distinctions
have been maintained by the dissimilar treatment received by the two
communities and their inhabitants under Israeli government
policy. Exacerbated by the Palestinian Intifada, the relations of the
Palestinian divided communities to each other and to the rest of the
world have produced noticeable differences in economic, educational
and cultural development. The sociolinguistic facts revealed in the
language situation in the villages are study shown to be correlated
with political and demographic differences.
