Parochialism and Intercourse: Metaphors for Mobility.
Edwards, John
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v15 n2-3 p171-78 1994
Discusses tensions resulting from dichotomies existing between "smaller" languages and those of wider communications. It is suggested that there are four recurring approaches for dealing with this tension: communicative language shift, defense of the more threatened variety, "localization" of the stronger language (for example, the development of indigenized Englishes), and bilingualism.
