Abstract:

Most African languages are spoken by communities as one of several languages
present on a daily basis. The persistence of multilingualism and the
linguistic creativity manifest in the playful use of different languages are
striking, especially against the backdrop of language death and expanding
monolingualism elsewhere in the world. The effortless mastery of several
languages is disturbing, however, for those who take essentialist perspectives
that see it as a problem rather than a resource, and for the dominating,
conflictual, sociolinguistic model of multilingualism. This volume
investigates African minority languages in the context of changing patterns of
multilingualism, and also assesses the status of African languages in terms of
existing influential vitality scales. An important aspect of multilingual
praxis is the speakers' agency in making choices, their repertoires of
registers and the multiplicity of language ideology associated with different
ways of speaking. The volume represents a new and original contribution to the
ethnography of speaking of multilingual practices and the cultural ideas
associated with them.
