Item description for Language Ideological Debates (Language, Power and Social Process) by Jan Blommaert...
Language-Ideological Debates presents analyses of historically situated discursive events -- debates -- during which ideas about language are formed, articulated, and authoritatively entextualized. The studies cover cases as diverse as Corsica, the US, Singapore and Congo. Based on detailed empirical analyses, the book intends to fuel the theoretical discussion on language, history, and society.
The studies aim at offering insights in the concrete human-agentive and sociopolitical dimensions of language history, thus enriching the historiography of language with more mature insights in the dynamics of power and politics.
