Comanaru, Ruxandra-Silvia; Noels, Kimberly A.; Dewaele, Jean-Marc – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2018
Studies of bicultural identity have claimed conflict--harmony and distance--overlap as relevant axes for describing bicultural identity, whereas other research emphasises variations across social situations. Based on this literature and focus group interviews, the bicultural identity of 300 young adults from immigrant families was examined, and a…

Yakushkina, Maria; Olson, Daniel J. – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2017
A significant body of research has begun to explore the association between language and identity, a relationship that becomes more complex when considering multilingual communities.

Musolff, Andreas – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019
Sociolinguists have adopted the concept of 'super-diversity' from cultural anthropology to analyse multidimensional changes in ethnolinguistic identities resulting from recent mass migration. Sociolinguistic super-diversity is thus understood as a central aspect of shifts in migration patterns that have increased the complexity of cultural…

Rubin, Aviad – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2017
Many contributors to the normative literature on language policy argue that inclusive multilingual regimes are beneficial on several grounds. However, despite the professed advantages of multilingualism, most nation-states have been reluctant to equally recognise minority languages alongside the majority language. This reality raises three…

Chan, Jim Yee Him – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2018
With increasing global demand for English and Chinese language education, the existence of linguistic variation in (and varieties of) both languages has focused scholarly attention on the choice of language standards, norms and models. Using in-depth focus group interviews, this study compared bilingual learners' choice of English and Putonghua…

Fang, Gao; Chun, Lai – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2018
The literature on acculturation illustrates that a bulk of non-dominant ethnocultural minorities consider themselves bicultural, involving both dominant and ethnic cultures. Yet, little is known about how bicultural individuals perceive and construct dual cultures, and how their two cultural identities are played out in daily interactions. While…

Mu, Guanglun Michael – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2015

Sun, James Jian-Min; Hu, Ping; Ng, Sik Hung – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2017
When China liberalised its economy and opened up to the (Western) world, it actively promoted the English language at schools and universities on a massive scale. This learn-English movement, riding on the back of English as the dominant international language, has powered English into China's education reforms. We outline the movement and discuss…

Nosenko-Stein, Elena – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2014
For many centuries, "being a Jew" was equivalent to "performing the ceremonial laws of Judaism." Thus, ethnic and confessional principles coincided and reinforced the cultural identity of Jewry as an entity. Strong self-identification and in-group solidarity supported the high "ethnic temperature" of this group. The…
