Title: Language Allegiances and Bilingualism in the US
Edited By: Maximo Rafael Salaberry
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847691774
Series Title: Linguistic Diversity and Language Rights
Description:

This book analyses the concept of language allegiances, and, more broadly,
language-based identities in a multilingual society such as the US. The
guiding theme of the chapters that comprise this volume is the
identification of specific beliefs and attitudes towards language, and how
these lead to particular actions in the spheres of language ideology, legal
litigation, educational agendas, political strategies and cultural
identities. The authors share the idea that, whether it is based on reality
or a perception of reality, there is a privileged connection between
language and identity.
