Backlash: A Response to Michael Clyne.
Ager, Dennis
Current Issues in Language and Society, v4 n2 p162-66 1997
A response to an article on multiculturalism and the status of community languages in Australia focuses on the issue of "backlash" against public policy for immigrants, and discusses the link between language planning and social planning. The role of elites and "counterelites," interest and pressure groups, in the successful implementation of policy is also considered. (MSE)
