New Edition

Language in Canada provides an up-to-date account of the linguistic and 
cultural situation in Canada, primarily from a sociolinguistic perspective. The 
strong central theme connecting language with group and identity will offer 
insights into the current linguistic and cultural tension in Canada. The book 
provides comprehensive accounts of the original 'charter' languages, French 
and English, as well as the aboriginal and immigrant varieties which now 
contribute to the overall picture. It explains how they came into contact - and 
sometimes into conflict - and looks at the many ways in which they weave 
themselves through and around the Canadian social fabric. The public policy 
issues, particularly official bilingualism and educational policy and language, 
are also given extensive coverage. Non-specialists as well as linguists will 
find in this volume, a companion to Language in Australia, Language in the 
USA and Language in the British Isles, an indispensable guide and reference 
to the linguistic heritage of Canada.

- Up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of the Canadian linguistic and 
cultural scene 
- Stresses the links between languages and other important aspects of social 
life 
- Broad and prestigious group of authors
