Abstract:

This volume considers the ways in which modernity challenges and informs 
the language policies of various Southeast Asians nations. Using case 
studies from Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, the 
authors examine language policies that are explicitly articulated either 
in the form of State constitutions or in the public proclamations of 
political leaders.

Particular attention is paid to the ways in which English often seems as 
the language of globalization, impacts the status of indigenous Southeast 
Asian language.

Language Policy and Modernity in Southeast Asia will be of interest to 
researchers in both language policy and contemporary political theory.
