Multilingualism in Australia: Reflections on Current and Future Research Trends
Rubino, Antonia
Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, v33 n2 p17.1-17.21 2010
This paper gives a critical overview of Australian research in the area of immigrant languages, arguing that this field of study is a significant component of the wider applied linguistics scene in Australia and has also contributed to enhancing the broad appreciation of the cultural and linguistic diversity of the country. It shows that research into immigrant languages has drawn upon a range of paradigms and evaluates those that have been most productively used. The paper argues that new research developments are needed to take into account the changing linguistic landscape of Australia and the increased fluidity and mobility of current migration. (Contains 9 endnotes.)
