Multilingual Living presents speakers' own accounts of the challenges and
advantages of living in several languages at individual, family and
societal levels. Individuals note profound differences in their sense of
themselves, their relationships and their parenting, depending on which
language they use - their experience highlights the interlinking of
language, subjectivity and identity construction. The author further
considers effects of the hierarchy of languages and power relationships.
The book provides rich interview material of considerable interest to
sociolinguists, psychologists, sociologists and lay readers interested in
language and identity and in the dynamics of bilingual and multilingual living.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
