Literacy and Cultural Displacement.
Balhorn, Mark
College ESL, v6 n2 p50-61 Dec 1996
Discusses the close connection between cultural beliefs and practices and the use of language and focuses on the erosive impact of Western language literacy on native cultures. Suggests that when teachers teach connections between first- and second-language discourses, students can retain the intimate truths of their primary discourse while expressing insights in a language intelligible to everyone.
