A Future for English/Irish Bilingualism in Northern Ireland?
Northover, Mehroo; Donnelly, Stephen
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v17 n1 p33-48 1996
Argues that there is no pressure to make Irish an official language in Northern Ireland because the sociolinguistic preconditions for bilingualism do not exist. The article demonstrates that those Irish who do not speak or learn Irish have no less a sense of having an Irish identity than do fluent speakers or those learning Irish. (26 references) (Author/CK)
