Language Maintenance and Vernacular Literacy: An Interamerican Perspective.
Francis, Norbert
Journal of Navajo Education, v14 n1-2 p34-44 Fall-Win 1996-1997
Discusses the relationships among bilingual education, biliteracy, diglossia, and native language maintenance. Pedagogical research in Latin American indigenous languages and Navajo indicate that indigenous language literacy instruction and bilingual methods also contribute significantly to literacy development in the national language (English or Spanish), after which the coexistence of the languages may depend upon diglossia. Contains 43 references. (TD)
