Abstract:

The book documents the changing language situation in urban centres in 
China, gauging the impact of industrialization and the consequent population 
movement on forms of language communication. Research reports detailing 
aspects of the new and emerging language situation demonstrate the 
interplay of the Chinese standard language, Putonghua, and various Chinese 
dialects. Urban areas covered are Baotou (Inner Mongolia), Jintan (Jiangsu), 
Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Hainan island. The Chinese transition to an 
industrial society is contrasted with post-industrialized societies in Europe. 
The latter are represented by studies of the Dutch and German language 
situation. The empirical studies are preceded by an overview of China's 
language planning efforts, an analysis of the position of the Chinese language 
in the World Language System, a comparison of Chinese and European urban 
environments, an introduction of the Chinese Dialect Preservation Project, 
and an experimental study of the mutual intelligibility between Chinese 
dialects. The contributions are all original and they address current issues in 
the Chinese language situation, exemplifying innovative applications and 
development of sociolinguistic theories. The book therefore is a must-read for 
linguists, sociolinguistics, Chinese language students and China experts.
