Language Rights in South Africa: Lessons for the United States.
Marback, Richard
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v22 n2 p355-75 Spr 2002
Considers the pursuit of language rights of speakers of English varieties, particularly those collected under the category of African American vernacular English. Describes how a lack of legal language rights for African Americans have left them to appeal to attitudes in the search for democratizing teaching policies. Concludes that attempts to enrich language rights must reconstitute multilingual language rights at the point where they are exercised by individuals. (SG)
