Educating for Language AwarenesseBook - 2009
Examines the social cost of linguistic exceptionalism for the education of speakers of nondominant/subordinated languages in the African diaspora. This title takes the languages of Africa, the Caribbean, and the US as cases in point to illustrate the effects of exceptionalist beliefs that these languages are inadequate for instructional purposes.
