The Effect of Globalisation in Africa and the Choice of Language in Publishing.
Bgoya, Walter
International Review of Education, v47 n3-4 p283-292 Jul 2001
Discusses the problems of the domination of the ex-colonial languages for intellectual life in Africa. Asserts that English serves fundamentally the interests of those for whom it is both an export commodity and a language of conquest and domination, and argues that there is no compelling reason for adopting a foreign language as a national one.
