Language and Language-in-Education Planning in the Pacific Basin
examines and reviews the ecological context (including, e.g., the
historical, political and educational issues) of language planning in
14 countries in the Pacific basin: Japan, the two Koreas, Taiwan, the
Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam, Singapore,
Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and
Vanuatu. The planning goals pursued in these states are then examined
in terms of an overarching view of language planning. The book
provides the only up-to-date overview and review of language policy in
the region and challenges those interested in language policy and
planning to think about how such goals might be achieved in the
context of language ecology. In a world where languages and their uses
and users are changing rapidly, and where governments and other
political bodies are driving planned language change, there is a need
to understand and consider how and why language planning is done. The
book will be of interest to specialists interested in language and
education, and to more general readers wishing to understand the
dynamics of history and politics and its impact on language and
language-in-education policy decisions.
