Description - Language in Canada by John Edwards
Canada is a country in which many languages intertwine. French and English are the original "charter" languages, but there is also a large number of aboriginal and immigrant varieties that contribute to the overall picture. This book provides a comprehensive look at all these languages, at how they came into contact--and sometimes conflict--and at the many ways in which they weave themselves through and around the Canadian social fabric. The broader issues of public policy, particularly educational policy and language are also given comprehensive coverage.
