Language and Nation : Language Question in Sub-Saharan Africa
Focusing on the problem of multilingualism in relation to national integration, communication, development and education in Eastern Africa, this study examines the processes of policy formulation. It discusses different types of language policies and practices in the context of the role of national and international agencies of language planning. Although the focus of the book is sub-Saharan Africa, comparisons with other parts of the world are made whenever necessary.
