Title: Language Planning in Multilingual Contexts: Policies, Communities and Schools in Luxembourg
Written By: KathrynADavis
Series Title: Studies in Bilingualism, 8
Description:

This volume examines the sociocultural factors that influence language choices and uses in the multilingual country of Luxembourg. Patterns of language use within and across communities are viewed in terms of interrelationships among language policy intent, implementation and experience. Also studied is the difference between reality and expectation for both individual and government goals. A history of past language policies and practices sets the background for recent policy formation and current language uses and values.
