Language policy and social reproduction: Ireland, 1893-1993

Pádraig Ó Riagáin

Oxford University Press, 1997 - Foreign Language Study - 297 pages

During the nineteenth century, Irish-speaking communities declined
almost to the point of extinction. But in 1922 the new Irish state
launched a broad strategy to re-establish Irish as a national
language. This book looks at that policy and its impact over the last
seventy years. Padraig O Riagain focuses not only on the evolving
structure of bilingualism in Ireland but also on the process of
bilingual reproduction. His analysis is based on a series of language
surveys conducted between 1973 and 1993.
