9780521563284: Language in Canada

Canada is a country in which many languages intertwine. French and English are the original "charter" languages, but there is also a large number of aboriginal and immigrant varieties that contribute to the overall picture. This book provides a comprehensive look at all these languages, at how they came into contact--and sometimes conflict--and at the many ways in which they weave themselves through and around the Canadian social fabric. The broader issues of public policy, particularly educational policy and language are also given comprehensive coverage.

Review:

"...an exceptionally well-detailed and well-documented overview of language issues in Canada...informative and interesting to read...accurate, honest, and immensely sensitive to the day-to-day Canadian situation. As a result, it is a wonderful compendium for national and international scholars, students, or even laypeople interested in the subject." Anthropological Linguistics

"This is a magnificent book. It will become a prominent item for anyone dealing with language in Canada." John D. Vries, CJS Online

"...this is a book full of fascinating information..." Monica Heller, Language in Society

"...this book nevertheless evinces a remarkable commonness of purpose and execution...[Edwards] has succeeded in putting together a work of significant value and interest." Canadian Journal of Linguistics
