Arabization in Tunisia: The Tug of War.
Daoud, Mohamed
Issues in Applied Linguistics, v2 n1 p7-29 Jun 1991
The policy of Arabization is examined as an example of language planning used to pursue and maintain power. The Tunisian language situation is analyzed in terms of education, government administration, and media and general use. It is shown that promotion of Arabization is inconsistent but that bilingualism and biculturalism have been promoted. (18 references) (Author/LB)
