Language Politics in Latin America
Rajagopalan, Kanavillil
AILA Review, v18 p76-93 2005
This paper is an attempt to take stock of the politics of language as it has been playing out in Latin America, ever since the countries in this region were colonized by European powers, mainly Spain and Portugal. Linguistic imperialism is by no means a new phenomenon in this part of the world. In more recent times, the relentless advance of English as the world's leading lingua franca has only brought to light the difficult North-South relations that have underpinned the geopolitics of the region.
