Abstract:

This book questions assumptions about the nature of language. Looking at
diverse contexts from sign languages in Indonesia to literacy practices in
Brazil, the authors argue that unless we change and reconstitute the ways
in which languages are taught and conceptualized, language studies will not
be able to improve the social welfare of language users.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics

Written In: English (eng )
