Paulston presents an analytical framework for explaining and predicting the
language behavior of social groups as such behavior relates to linguistic
policies for minority groups. She argues that there are a number of factors to
be considered in the understanding and establishment of language policies for
such groups.
1. the social context of language problems; 2. the linguistic consequences for
social groups in contact will vary depending on the focus of social
mobilization, i. e. ethnicity or nationalism; and 3. identifying the salient
factors which contribute to language maintenance and shift, i. e. what are the
conditions. The book is a vital help to educational policies and successful
language planning in general.
