9781403996787: Bilingualism: A Social Approach (Palgrave Advances in Language and Linguistics)

The contributors to this volume provide a critical examination of the notion of bilingualism as it has developed in linguistics and of its use in discourses of social regulation in state and civil society in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. They attempt to move the field away from a "common sense," but in fact highly ideologized, view of bilingualism as the co-existence of two linguistic systems, and to develop a critical perspective which approaches "bilingualism" as a wide variety of sets of sociolinguistic practices connected to the construction of social difference and of social inequality under specific historical conditions.

Review:

'...contain[s] a significant amount of useful and well-researched debate, much of which may be the source of some interesting debates. It is certainly a useable book for the postgraduate researcher at which it is aimed, as well as for the more established academic.' - David Hill, Journal of Sociolinguistics
