New Edition

Language in Canada provides an up-to-date account of the linguistic and
cultural situation in Canada, primarily from a sociolinguistic perspective. The
strong central theme connecting language with group and identity will offer
insights into the current linguistic and cultural tension in Canada. The book
provides comprehensive accounts of the original 'charter' languages, French
and English, as well as the aboriginal and immigrant varieties which now
contribute to the overall picture. It explains how they came into contact - and
sometimes into conflict - and looks at the many ways in which they weave
themselves through and around the Canadian social fabric. The public policy
issues, particularly official bilingualism and educational policy and language,
are also given extensive coverage. Non-specialists as well as linguists will
find in this volume, a companion to Language in Australia, Language in the
USA and Language in the British Isles, an indispensable guide and reference
to the linguistic heritage of Canada.
