Cantonese, English, and Putonghua in a Hong Kong Secondary School: Language Use and Language Attitudes.
Whelpton, John
Hong Kong Journal of Applied Linguistics, v4 n2 p79-92 Dec 1999
Investigates the role of the three major languages in Hong Kong by looking in depth at one secondary school where Putonghua has official status rather than English or Cantonese. Motivation for code choice is investigated through interviews and questionnaires. While Putongua has a special role in the school, the use of Cantonese was found to pervade most areas. (Author/VWL)
