Language and Ethnicity in Minority Sociolinguistic Perspective. Multilingual Matters 45.
Fishman, Joshua A.
A selection of 27 papers from 1972 to publication includes works on a variety of topics whose unifying theme is the relationship of language and ethnicity. The papers are presented in six groups, on these topics: (1) what ethnicity is and how it is linked to language: phenomenological and socio-historical considerations; (2) language maintenance and language shift in ethnocultural perspective; (3) the ethnic dimension in language planning; (4) language and ethnicity in education: the bilingual minority focus; (5) contrasts and contexts in ethnolinguistic behavior and attitudes; (6) ethnolinguistic homogeneity and heterogeneity: worldwide causes, consequences, and aspiration. Many of the articles contain bibliographies, and a subject index to all the papers is provided. (MSE)
