Title: Language Management
Written By: Bernard Spolsky
Description:

Language policy is all about choices. If you are bilingual or plurilingual,
you have to choose which language to use. Even if you speak only one
language, you have choices of dialects and styles. Some of these choices
are the result of management, reflecting conscious and explicit efforts by
language managers to control the choices. This is the first book to present
a specific theory of language management. Bernard Spolsky reviews current
research on the family, religion, the workplace, the media, schools, legal
and health institutions, the military and government. Also discussed are
language activists, international organizations, and human rights relative
to language, and the book concludes with a review of language managers and
management agencies. A model is developed that recognizes the complexity of
language management, makes sense of the various forces involved, and
clarifies why it is such a difficult enterprise.
