Abstract:

Japan is widely regarded as a model case of successful language
modernization, and it is often erroneously believed to be linguistically
homogenous. There is a connection between these two views. As the first ever
non-Western language to be modernized, Japanese language modernizers
needed to convince the West that Japanese was just as good a language as the
national languages of the West. The result was a fervent desire for linguistic
uniformity. Today the legacy of modernist language ideology poses many
problems to an internationalizing Japan. All indigenous minority languages are
heading towards extinction, and this purposefully created homogeneity also
affects the integration of immigrants and their languages. This book examines
these issues from the perspective of language ideology, and in doing so the
mechanisms by which language ideology undermines linguistic diversity are
revealed.
