Abstract:

The subject of this book is linguistic minorities and social change, seen
through the lens of a linguistic minority school, meeting the challenges of
globalization. This is a core topic for sociolinguists, linguistic
anthropologists, applied linguists and educators who are concerned about
what multilingualism means in today's world. Through a careful examination
of the language practices in the daily life of a minority language school,
Monica Heller explores issues such as nationalism, language policy,
bilingualism, identity, power, ideology, race, class, gender and sexuality,
exploring their role in the increasing commodification of identity and
language. Linguistic Minorities and Modernity has been revised throughout
and includes a new preface by the author.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics

Written In: English (eng )
