Book Information

   

Title: Multiple Voices
Subtitle: An Introduction to Bilingualism
Written By: Carol Marie Myers-Scotton
Description:

Multiple Voices: An Introduction to Bilingualism provides a comprehensive
overview of all major features of bilingualism, including grammatical,
cognitive, and social aspects. It examines bilingualism as a
socio-political phenomenon and emphasizes languages in contact, language
maintenance and shift, language policy, and bilingual education. The book
includes many detailed examples from all over the world.

This is written accessibly for students with little or no background in
linguistics by a prominent bilingualism researcher.

"It's been hard to find a good textbook in bilingualism for undergraduate
students in such diverse fields as psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, and
language policy; but Myers-Scotton, a leading scholar in the area, has met
the need. Topics covered include language maintenance, language ideology,
inter-cultural communication, lexical and grammatical borrowing, and
language globalization. Numerous case studies from nations as far-flung as
Italy, China, and Kenya, and from immigrant communities such as Turks in
the Netherlands and Haitians in New York, make this a most attractive volume."
