One Nation, Four Hundred Languages: Unity and Diversity in Nigeria's Language Policy.
Akinnaso, F. Niyi
Language Problems and Language Planning, v13 n2 p133-46 Sum 1989
Nigeria's language policies are examined, focusing on conflicting objectives, ideological motivations, and orientations. The conflicts are explained in terms of the sociohistorical development of the nation, its complex ethnolinguistic landscape, conflicting demands of nationalism and nationism, and the attempt to maintain cultural and linguistic pluralism during unification.
