Book Information


Title: The Sociolinguistics of Development in Africa
Written By: Paulin G Djite
Series Title: Multilingual Matters

This book is an analysis of modernisation informed by the place of language
in education, health, the economy and governance in the African context.
It paints a wide canvas of Africa in its different facets, and shows how
language is used as an instrument to deny access to socioeconomic and
political emancipation.
