Motivation in Language Planning/lang Pol

Dennis Ernest Ager

Multilingual Matters, 2001 - 210 pages

The aim of this book is to investigate motives for action on language.
Seven seem to recur: identity, insecurity, ideology, image,
inequality, integration and instrumentality. The author relates those
to wider issues of personal and social motivation, discussing the
language strategies, plans and policies of a number of individuals,
communities and states.
