"Vive la Difference!?" Language Challenges in South Africa.
Roos, Riana
Language Awareness, v6 n2&3 p171-82 1997
Discusses the language policy existing in the "New South Africa," which provides for the use of 11 official languages. The article argues that this policy poses challenges and that the development process is complicated by attitudes that indigenous languages are inferior to English and other Western languages. The study explores the potential role of language awareness in addressing these problems. (35 references) (Author/CK)
