Title: Language Ideological Debates
Edited By: Jan Blommaert
Description:

Language-Ideological Debates presents analyses of historically situated discursive events -- debates -- during which ideas about language are formed, articulated, and authoritatively entextualized. The studies cover cases as diverse as Corsica, the US, Singapore, and Congo. Based on detailed empirical analyses, the book intends to fuel the theoretical discussion on language, history, and society.
