Presents state-of-the-art knowledge about languages in contact from individual bilingualism (or bilinguality) to societal bilingualism.
This updated and revised edition of Hamers and Blanc's successful textbook presents new knowledge about languages in contact from individual bilinguality to societal bilingualism. It is multi- and interdisciplinary in approach, and analyzes bilingualism at individual, interpersonal, and societal levels. Linguistic, cognitive and sociocultural aspects of bilingual development are explored, as are bilingual problems. The authors cover a range of issues including the relationship among culture, identity, and language behavior in multicultural settings; communication strategies in interpersonal and intergroup relations; language shift; pidgins and creoles; language planning; and bilingual education.
