Abstract:

This new series consists of accessible yet challenging accounts of the
most important issues to consider when examining the relationship
between language and society. Written by leading experts, the books in
the series are designed to be used in courses and in seminars, and
include useful suggestions for further reading and helpful glossaries.

Bernard Spolsky looks at the many debates at the forefront of language
policy in this up-to-date introduction. The topics covered include
ideas of correctness and bad language; bilingualism and
multilingualism; language death and efforts to preserve endangered
languages; language choice as a human and civil right; and language
education policy. Spolsky develops a theory of modern national
language policy and the major forces controlling it and explores
questions that arise concerning the recognition of language policies
and language management.
