Abstract:

Can historically marginalized, threatened languages be saved in the
contemporary global era? In relation to the wider postcolonial world, especially
the Caribbean, this book focuses on efforts to preserve and promote Lesser
Antillean French Creole - Kwéyòl - as the national language of Saint Lucia and
on the legacy of colonialism and impact of globalization, with which English has
become the universal lingua franca, as mitigating factors undermining these
efforts. It deals specifically with language planning for democratization and
government; literacy, the schools and higher education; and the mass media. It
also examines changes in the status of and attitudes toward Kwéyòl, English
and French since national independence and presents language planning
implications from these changes and steps already undertaken to elevate
Kwéyòl. The book offers new insight into globalization and its impact on
linguistic pluralism, language planning, national development, Creole languages,
and cultural identity in the Caribbean.
