Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."
The Proceedings of the 28th Annual Child Language Research Forum
The contributors to this book explore their findings on language acquisition in a variety of the world's languages, reflecting the diversity of interests in the field and the range of languages being studies. This volume makes an empirical, as well as a theoretical, contribution to linguistic research.
