Multilingual Perspectives

January 1998 | 226 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
This study of the origins and variegated identity of the `native speaker' presents psycho- and neuro-linguistic perspectives as well as several case studies from India, Singapore and Africa. The contributors also address the politicization involved in the `nativization' and `othering' of varieties of speech and dialects.
