9781853591211: Reversing Language Shift:Theoretical and Empirical Foundations of Assistance to Threatened Languages (Multilingual Matters)

This superbly organised presentation consists of four introductory theoretical chapters dealing with the why, what and how of RLS, six chapters devoted to 13 separate cases from various parts of the world and four concluding chapters that both restate the underlying theory as well as apply it more broadly, beyond the mother tongue transmission nexus, to second language for which intergenerational continuity is pursued precisely as second languages.
