A Pragmatic Language Policy in Relation to English:
Bangladesh Contexts
Md. Monjurul Islam, M.A. in English
The status of language is a critical issue in many states. Language
policy is one method
by which governments attempt to manage any critical situation that comes from
languages and its status. The aim of the article is to look at some of
the existing problems regarding language policy in Bangladesh. In this
paper, the qualitative method is used by following document  analysis.
Data has been analyzed on the basis of various articles, books about
language policies and
language policies of different countries. At the same time, this
article compares these data
on the basis of Bangladesh contexts. It is found that Bangladesh needs
a pragmatic
language policy if it wants to think its socio-political,
socio-economic and socio-cultural
situations and to develop its nation by challenging all obstacles of
development as well as
to face the globalization.
