1 Reseña
Language in Canada 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 will offer insights into current linguistic and cultural tensions 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 will find in this volume an indispensable guide and reference to the linguistic heritage of Canada.
