The Economics of Multilingualism: Overview and Analytical Framework.
Grin, Francois; Vaillancourt, Francois
Annual Review of Applied Linguistics, v17 p43-65 1997
Literature in the little-known field of the economics of multilingualism is reviewed, focusing on five major issues: defining language; language and earnings; language of work, consumption, and business; language dynamics (acquisition, maintenance, and shift); and language policies. An analytical framework integrating economic and language factors is then outlined. A 14-item annotated bibliography is included. (MSE)
