When English Is Not a Mother Tongue: Linguistic Ownership and the Eurasian Community in Singapore.
Wee, Lionel
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v23 n4 p282-95 2002
Looks at different ways linguistic ownership can be manifested and focuses on the Eurasian community in Singapore, suggesting that English should be given mother tongue status for that community. Examines government support for such a call. Argues that in the case of Singapore, linguistic ownership is part of an overall government strategy for managing ethnic relations. (Author/VWL)
