Multilingualism and Nation Building: Language and Education in Eritrea.
Hailemariam, Chefena; Kroon, Sjaak; Walters, Joel
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v20 n6 p475-93 1999
Focuses on language choice in Eritrea within the broader context of language policy in multilingual states. Pre-colonial and post-colonial language policies are surveyed in relation to evolving linguistic and political nationalism. Post-independence language policy is examined from the perspective of the functional allocation of nine Eritrean languages and the points at which these conflict and complement each other.
