King, Robert D.
Southwest Journal of Linguistics, v18 n1 p1-13 Jun 1999
There is a tradition of Public Linguistics--linguistics in aid of civic issues--in American linguistics that was strongly present at the beginning of the linguistics discipline and that continues to the present. Unfortunately, language has emerged as a political issue in American public life. The unity of America is not threatened by language, but many people believe otherwise. (Author/VWL)
