Discourse Constraints on Language Policy in South Africa.
Ridge, Stanley G. M.
Indian Journal of Applied Linguistics, v25 n1-2 p7-25 Jan-Dec 1999
Explores the constraints imposed by certain common discourses on the development and implementation of language policy in South Africa. Analyzes a debate in the 1870s concerning the future language of South Africa, examines a series of popular articles from a daily newspaper to reveal traps of popular discourses, and scans official policy documents to show the unintended implications of the discourses within which they are framed.
