Abstract:

This volume offers a synthetic approach to language variation and languageideologies in multilingual communities. Although the vast majority of theworld's speech communities are multilingual, much of sociolinguisticsignores this internal diversity. This volume fills this gap, investigatingsocial and linguistic dimensions of variation and change in multilingualcommunities. Drawing on research in a wide range of countries (Canada, USA,South Africa, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu), itexplores: connections between the fields of creolistics, language/dialectcontact, and language acquisition; how the study of variation and change,particularly in cases of additive bilingualism, is central to understandingsocial and linguistic issues in multilingual communities; how changinglanguage ideologies and changing demographics influence language choiceand/or language policy, and the pivotal place of multilingualism inenacting social power and authority, and a rich array of new empiricalfindings on the dynamics of multilingual speech communities.
