Cajun French, Sociolinguistic Knowledge, and Language Loss in Louisiana.
Ryon, Dominique
Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, v1 n4 p279-93 2002
Uses Foucault's work on knowledge and power to show that the politics of language and of researching it are closely related. A study of Cajun French argues that language loss is a social as well as a discursive process and that academic knowledge and discourse both play a significant role in language politics. Advocates the use of local knowledge to enhance the understanding of sociolinguistic issues involving unequal power relationships. (Author/VWL)
