Bilingual Education and Official English, Ebonics and Standard English, Immigration and the Unz Initiative
James E. Alatis and Ai-Hui Tan, Editors
Marking the return — after a two-year hiatus — of this annual collection of essays on linguistics and language education, the 1999 volume speaks to the most pressing social issues of our time. More than thirty contributors from around the world take up longstanding debates about language diversity, language standardization, and language policy. They tackle such controversial issues as the Official English movement, bilingual education, and ideological struggles over African American Vernacular English.
"A valuable compendium of knowledge. . . . the volume provides a current, accessible, welcome, and well-tempered picture of contemporary scholarship."—Modern Language Journal
