English versus French: Language Rivalry in Tunisia.
Battenburg, John
World Englishes, v16 n2 p281-90 Jul 1997
Examines the competition between English and French in Tunisian educational institutions and programs. Scrutinizes two periods in postprotectorate Tunisia: the introduction of English and the spread of English. Findings indicate that the decline in French linguistic influence may be accompanied by a future decrease in French political and economic status. (45 references) (Author/CK)
