This book explores language socialization from very early childhood
through adulthood, not only in often-studied communities in Canada and
the United States, but also in Australia, Bolivia, Egypt, India, and
Slovakia. The global perspective gained by the inclusion of studies of
communities representing every inhabited continent provides readers
with an indication of the richness of the field as well as a guide for
future work.
