Book Information

   

Title: Language in Canada
Edited By: John Edwards
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521563283
Description:

Canada is a country in which many languages intertwine. French and English
are the original "charter" languages, but there is also a large number of
aboriginal and immigrant varieties which contribute to the overall picture.
This book provides a comprehensive look at all these languages, at how they
came into contact and sometimes conflict and at the many ways in which they
weave themselves through and around the Canadian social fabric. The broader
issues of public policy, particularly educational policy and language are
also given comprehensive coverage.
