Sociolinguistics from the Periphery

By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users"

Title: Multilingual Identities in a Global City
Written By: David Block
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403939640
Series Title: Language and Globalisation
Description:

Opening with a discussion of the key issues of globalization, migration,
multiculturalism, multilingualism and global cities, David Block then turns
to four detailed case studies: East Asian students living and working in
London; foreign language teachers from France; London's growing Latino
community; and second generation South Asian university students. Via these
case studies the book explores the ambivalent and multi-layered identities
of individuals who have crossed geographical and psychological borders
during the course of their lifetimes and settled in London, the
quintessential global city.
