Title: Laada Bilaniuk, Contested tongues: Language politics and cultural correction in Ukraine
Author: Anna Verschik
Institution: Tallinn University
Linguistic Field: Sociolinguistics
Subject Language: Ukrainian
Abstract: Laada Bilaniuk, Contested tongues: Language politics and cultural correction in Ukraine. Ithaca and London: Cornell University Press, 2005. Pp. xiv, 230. Pb/Hb.

This is a comprehensive ethnographic study of an immensely complex language situation in the post-Soviet Ukraine. Bilaniuk discusses subtle matters, such as language ideologies, the struggle over status, compromise strategies, and highly stigmatized mixed varieties called surzhik, in a manner that makes the book accessible to nonspecialists in the field of sociolinguistics.
