 Australia's Englishes, its indigenous, migrant and contact languages and
 wide-ranging language policies are well-known. Based on extensive research,
 Census and other data, this book develops a comprehensive and integrative
 approach to Australia's language habitat and the transformation of the
 indigenous habitats since colonization. Linking social history, linguistic
 development and political and educational perspectives of language policy
 and planning, it provides a succinct overview of this segment of
 Australia's many voices and shows how it relates to Australian English, the
 national language.
 Gerhard Leitner is Professor of English at the Free University, Berlin.
