As Kroskrity (2000) has observed, language ideologies are “naturalized” and is difficult to “see”. It is pervasive and one can analyse it from many perspectives. Metadiscursive strategies (e.g. by Baumann and Briggs; same publication), nationalist agendas, group interests, and cultural identities are just some aspects of ideologies in language works. I am uploading a paper by Phan, Ho and Chng (2013)(Article), although those of you in the field might already have it.
Since about 200 readers/visitors visit this blog monthly, the sharing of publications, news on language policies and research areas relating to this region from readers/visitors are always welcome. Kindly make use of the email or “leave a reply” functions for this purpose. I look forward to hearing from you!
