Gynan, Shaw N.
Current Issues in Language Planning, v2 n1 p53-118 2001
Discusses language planning and policy in Paraguay, a country that is unique among the countries of the Americas because nearly 90% of the non-indigenous population speaks Guarani, an indigenous language. Highlights an initiative to implement universal, two-way bilingual education in Guarani and Spanish that has resulted in widespread use of Guarani in the classroom. (Author/VWL)
