Abstract:

The Pacific is historically an area of enormous linguistic diversity, where
talk figures as a central component of social life. Pacific communities
also represent diverse contact zones -- between indigenous and introduced
institutions and ideas, between local actors and outsiders, and involving
difference lingua francas and colonial and local language varieties.
Contact between colonial and postcolonial governments, religious
institutions, and indigenous communities has spurred profound social
change, irrelovocably transforming linguistic ideologies -- reflexive
sensibilities about languages and language use -- and practices. Drawing on
ethnographic and linguistic analyses, this volume examines situations of
intertwined linguistic and cultural change unfolding in specific Pacific
locations in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Its
overarching concern is with the multiple ways that processes of historical
change have shaped and been shaped by linguistic ideologies held by Pacific
peoples and other agents of change. The essays demonstrate the language and
linguistic practices are linked to changing consciousness of self and
community through notions of agency, morality, affect, authority, and
authenticity.
