Language in Canada
Edited by John Edwards, St. Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia

Canada is a country in which many languages intertwine. French and
English are the original "charter" languages, but there is also a
large number of aboriginal and immigrant varieties which contribute to
the overall picture. This book provides a comprehensive look at all
these languages, at how they came into contact and sometimes conflict
and at the many ways in which they weave themselves through and around
the Canadian social fabric. The broader issues of public policy,
particularly educational policy and language are also given
comprehensive coverage.
