Language Revitalisation in the Andes: Can the Schools Reverse Language Shift?
Hornberger, Nancy H.; King, Kendall A.
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v17 n6 p427-41 1996
Examines two initiatives to revitalize Quechua, the language of the Incas: Bolivia's 1994 reform incorporating the provision of bilingual intercultural education; and a community-based effort to incorporate Quichua as a second language instruction in a school in Ecuador. Points out that census records and sociolinguistic studies document a continuous cross-generational shift from Quechua to Spanish. (28 references) (Author/CK)
