Abstract:

This volume covers the language situation in Algeria, Côte d'Ivoire,
Nigeria and Tunisia, explaining the linguistic diversity, the historical
and political contexts and the current language situation, including
language-in-education planning, the role of the media, the role of
religion, and the roles of non-indigenous languages. The authors are
indigenous and/or have been participants in the language planning context.
Algeria, Côte d'Ivoire and Tunisia are not well represented in the
international language policy/planning literature, while the section on
Nigeria draws together the published literature in this area. The purpose
of the volumes in this series is to present up-to-date information on
polities that are not well-known to researchers in the field. A longer
range purpose is to collect comparable information on as many polities as
possible in order to facilitate the development of a richer theory to guide
language policy and planning in other polities that undertake the
development of a national policy on languages. This volume is part of an
areal series which is committed to providing descriptions of language
planning and policy in countries around the world.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
