Le bilinguisme canadien: bibliographie analytique et guide du chercheur (Canadian Bilingualism: Analytical Bibliography and Research Guide).
Mackey, William F.
This bibliography on Canadian bilingualism includes a very large number of useful resources, including newspaper articles. Each chapter has two sections: an introduction presenting the problems related to the particular topic of the chapter, and a bibliographic section. A general introduction defines the object of the research and presents the main problems related to each of the fourteen categories of the bibliography. The bibliography is divided according to the following schema: (1) historical studies; (2) linguistic demography; (3) political solutions; (4) economic factors; (5) legal problems; (6) the language of administration; (7) languages and education; (8) the social dimension; (9) analysis and normalization of languages; (10) the geographic aspect; (11) psychological factors; (12) the cultural context; (13) ethnic relations; and (14) official investigations and documents. A glossary of linguistic terminology and four legal documents are appended. The latter include the law concerning the status of official languages in Canada, the official language act, the law on official languages in New Brunswick, and the French language charter of Quebec.
