National Language Planning and Language Shifts in Malaysian Minority Communities - Speaking in Many Tongues. Controversies and problems with regard to language policy and language education still exist in Malaysia. Despite the attempts of language policy makers to promote multilingualism, the implementation has been marred by political and religious affiliations. This book gathers the work of researchers working in the field of language change in Malaysia for over two decades, and is a timely contribution not only to an understanding of Malaysian linguistic pluralism and its undercurrents, but also to an understanding of the Indian Diaspora. With bibliography and index.
