Lee, Alice
Current Issues in Language and Society, v3 n2 p156-62 1996
Addresses the complex diglossic situation of Hong Kong's past with a focus on the judiciary. Examines the confrontation of a Cantonese-speaking population with a predominantly English-language legal system and the problematic question of how (and why) Hong Kong's legislation is being codified in two languages.
