Abstract:

This volume covers the language situation in Japan, Nepal and Taiwan, as
well as the modernisation of Chinese characters in China, 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.
Two of the authors are indigenous and the other two have been participants
in the language planning context in these countries. 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.
