Languages in Competition: The Struggle for Supremacy Among Nigeria's Major Languages, English and Pidgin

封面
Peter Lang, 2005 - 182 頁
Using both qualitative and quantitative research methods, the authors investigate the issue of language conflict situations in Nigeria resulting from the contact of Nigeria's indigenous languages with one another as well as with English and Pidgin English. The study captures patterns of language preference with the help of a survey of language attitudes and loyalties covering five Nigerian states. This book provides essential material for researchers and students in Sociolinguistics and Applied Linguistics as well as for educationists and language policy specialists.
