Title: Language Policy and Modernity in Southeast Asia
Subtitle: Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand
Written By: AntonioL.Rappa
URL: http://www.springer.com/1-4020-4510-7
Series Title: Language Policy
Description:

This volume considers the ways in which modernity challenges and informs
the language policies of various Southeast Asians nations. Using case
studies from Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, the
authors examine language policies that are explicitly articulated either
in the form of State constitutions or in the public proclamations of
political leaders.

Particular attention is paid to the ways in which English often seems as
the language of globalization, impacts the status of indigenous Southeast
Asian language.

Language Policy and Modernity in Southeast Asia will be of interest to
researchers in both language policy and contemporary political theory.
