              New Speakers of Irish in the Global Context: New Revival?

              New Speakers of Irish in the Global Context: New Revival? (Hardback)

              This volume is the first full-length publication to systematically unpack and analyze the linguistic practices and ideologies of new speakers specifically in an Irish language context. The book introduces the theoretical foundations of the new speaker framework as it manifests it...self in the Irish setting, describes its historical precedents, and traces its evolution to today. The book then draws upon a rich set of data and research methods, including participant observation, ethnographic fieldwork, interviews, and focus group discussions, to examine the new speaker phenomenon in Irish in more detail, looking at new speakers' language practices and usage and the ways in which they position their linguistic identities both within their respective communities and in juxtaposition with native speakers. While the book's focus is on Irish, the volume will contribute to a greater understanding of new speaker practices and ideologies in minority language contexts more generally, making this key reading for students and scholars in sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, language policy and planning, anthropology, and Irish studies.

              Language, Literacy and Diversity brings together researchers who are leading the innovative and important re-theorization of language and literacy in relation to social mobility, multilingualism and globalization. The volume examines local and global flows of people, language and... literacy in relation to social practice; the role (and nature) of boundary maintenance or disruption in global, transnational and translocal contexts; and the lived experiences of individuals on the front lines of global, transnational and translocal processes. The contributors pay attention to the dynamics of multilingualism in located settings and the social and personal management of multilingualism in socially stratified and ethnically plural social settings. Together, they offer ground-breaking research on language practices and documentary practices as regards to access, selection, social mobility and gate-keeping processes in a range of settings across several continents: Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe.

              Language and Learning in a Post-Colonial Context: A Critical Ethnographic Study in Schools in Haiti
               

              Language and Learning in a Post-Colonial Context: A Critical Ethnographic Study in Schools in Haiti (Hardback)

              By Jean-Pierre, Marky

              This book explores the social, political, and historical forces that mediate language ideology and practices in post-colonial education and how such ideology and practices influence students academic achievement. Jean-Pierre provides empirical evidence that a relationship exists ...between language practices and school underperformance. He takes Haiti as the focus of study, finding that students and teachers experience difficulty constructing knowledge in a setting in which the language they speak at home (Creole) differs from the language of instruction (French). The research is based on ethnographic data collected in classrooms in both private and public school settings in addition to different sectors of the society (e.g. state and private institutions).

              Global Portuguese: Linguistic Ideologies in Late Modernity
               

              Global Portuguese: Linguistic Ideologies in Late Modernity (Hardback)

              Edited by Moita-Lopes, Luiz Paulo

              • To Order

              This book aims at deconstructing and problematizing linguistic ideologies related to Portuguese in late modernity and questioning the theoretical presuppositions which have led us to call Portuguese 'a language.' Such an endeavor is crucial when we know that Portuguese is a langu...age which is increasingly internationalized, used as the official language in four continents (in eight countries) and which has come to play a relevant role in the so-called linguistic market on the basis of the geopolitical transformations in a multipolar world. The book covers a wide range of social, political and historical contexts in which 'Portuguese' is used (in Brazil, Canada, East-Timor, England, Portugal, Mozambique and Uruguay), and considers diverse linguistic practices. Through this critique, contributors chart new directions for research on language ideologies and language practices (including research related to Portuguese and to other 'languages') and consider ways of developing new conceptual compasses that are better attuned to the sociolinguistic realities of the late modern era, in which people, texts and languages are increasingly in movement through national borders and those of digital networks of communication.

              This collection brings together theory and ethnographic research from a range of national contexts to offer unique insights into the nature of agency in language policy and planning. Situated within a broader sociological framework, the book explores agentive processes at work in... case studies from around the world, engaging in discussions of such key themes as language and identity, language ideologies, linguistic diversity in education, and language revitalization. Each chapter examines the ways in which decisions made at both the local and national level impact language use and in turn, the dynamic relationship between language use, policy, and practice in these contexts. Taken together, this volume advances our understanding of agency in language policy and planning and directions for future research, making this key reading for students and scholars in language and education, critical sociolinguistics, and applied linguistics.

              Multilingualism in the Chinese Diaspora Worldwide: Transnational Connections and Local Social Realities (Hardback)

              In this volume, Li Wei brings together contributions from well-known and emerging scholars in socio- and anthropological linguistics working on different linguistic and communicative aspects of the Chinese diaspora. The project examines the Chinese diasporic experience from a glo...bal, comparative perspective, with a particular focus on transnational links, and local social and multilingual realities. Contributors address the emergence of new forms of Chinese in multilingual contexts, family language policy and practice, language socialization and identity development, multilingual creativity, linguistic attitudes and ideologies, and heritage language maintenance, loss, learning and re-learning. The studies are based on empirical observations and investigations in Chinese communities across the globe, including well-researched (from a sociolinguistic perspective) areas such as North America, Western Europe and Australia, as well as under-explored and under-represented areas such as Africa, Latin America, Central Asia, and the Middle East; the volume also includes detailed ethnographic accounts representing regions with a high concentration of Chinese migration such as Southeast Asia. This volume not only will allow sociolinguists to investigate the link between linguistic phenomena in specific communities and wider socio-cultural processes, but also invites an open dialogue with researchers from other disciplines who are working on migration, diaspora and identity, and those studying other language-based diasporic communities such as the Russian diaspora, the Spanish diaspora, the Portuguese diaspora, and the Arabic diaspora.

              Bilingual Parent Participation in a Divided School Community
               

              Bilingual Parent Participation in a Divided School Community (Hardback)

              This volume theorizes parent participation in a bilingual school community in California, unpacking broader issues around language ideologies, language and power, and parent collaboration in diverse educational contexts. Highlighting data from a two-year ethnographic study of the... school community, the book grounds this discussion in theories of discourse and bilingualism, with a focus on translanguaging and translingual practice. The volume points to a range of challenges and questions posed by the parents' efforts to unite as a single school community, including linguistic inequality, cultural divides, and differing implicit beliefs on language. The book documents these efforts as a means to demonstrate the ways in which monolingual practices are reinforced in these settings, despite best efforts, but also as a point of departure to discuss implications and a way forward for parent collaboration in bilingual school communities more generally. Offering a nuanced portrait of the impact of parent collaboration in bilingual school communities, this volume will be of particular interest to graduate students and scholars in language education, applied linguistics, bilingualism, and sociolinguistics.
