Abstract:

This book brings together current research by leading international scholars on
the often contentious nature of language policies and their practical outcomes in
North America, Australia and Europe. It presents a range of perspectives from
which to engage with a variety of pressing issues raised by multilingualism,
multiculturalism, immigration, exclusion, and identity. A recurrent theme is that
of tension and conflict: between uniformity and diversity, between official
policies and real day-to-day life experiences, but also between policies in
schools and the corporate world and their implementation. Several chapters
present research about language policy issues that has previously not been fully
or easily available to an English-language audience. Many of the chapters also
provide up-to-date analyses of language policy issues in particular regions or
countries, focusing on recent developments.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics

Written In: English (eng )
