Literacy in South America.
Hornberger, Nancy H.
Annual Review of Applied Linguistics, v12 p190-15 1991
Literacy in South America must be understood in terms of the linguistic diversity there, where only 2 of 14 nations and territories are monolingual. Oral traditions, standardization of indigenous languages, nonstandard varieties of colonial languages, bilingual education and mother tongue literacy, literacy teaching, and politics are discussed.
