Subject: Language Planning: Motivation in Language Planning and Language Policy

MOTIVATION IN LANGUAGE PLANNING AND LANGUAGE POLICY
Dennis Ager (Professor Emeritus, Aston University, Birmingham)

KEY FEATURES
- Covers the three components of motivation: motives, attitudes and
 goals and the relationship between them
- Looks at the motivation of policy makers in language planning and
 individuals in their own language behaviour

DESCRIPTION
The aim of this book is to investigate motives for action on language.
Seven seem to recur: identity, insecurity, ideology, image, inequality,
integration and instrumentality. The author relates those to wider
issues of personal and social motivation, discussing the language
strategies, plans and policies of a number of individuals, communities
and states.
