Language in Canada
Cambridge University Press, Jul 9, 1998 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 504 pages
Provides an up-to-date account of the linguistic and cultural situation in Canada, primarily from a sociolinguistic perspective. The strong central theme connecting language with group and identity offers insights into the current linguistic and cultural tension in Canada. The book provides comprehensive accounts of the original charter languages, French and English, as well as the aboriginal and immigrant varieties which now contribute to the overall picture. It explains how they came into contact - and sometimes into conflict - and looks at the many ways in which they weave themselves through and around the Canadian social fabric. The public policy issues, particularly official bilingualism and educational policy and language, are also given extensive coverage. Non-specialists as well as linguists should find in this volume, a companion to Language in Australia, Language in the USA and Language in the British Isles a guide and reference to the linguistic heritage of Canada.
