Language Planning and Policy in Ecuador
King, Kendall A.; Haboud, Marleen
Current Issues in Language Planning, v3 n4 p359-424 Dec 2002
This monograph presents up-to-date information concerning language planning and policy in Ecuador, highlighting the country's cultural and linguistic diversity, historical context, current sociolinguistic situation and possible directions for the future. Taking into account Ecuador's particular sociopolitical conditions, it aims to provide a comprehensive review of language policies and planning, as well as educational policies and programmes involving use of minoritised languages in media, education, religion and public official spaces. This monograph also underlines some of the challenges non-official languages confront "vis a vis" the dominant society, allowing for a better understanding of the dynamics of indigenous languages and organisations in Ecuador and the Andes. (Contains 5 tables, 4 figures and 3 notes.)
