This book examines language choice in contemporary Cambodia. It uses the spread of English, and French attempts at thwarting it in favor of their own language, to study and evaluate competing explanations for the spread of English globally. The book focuses on language choice and policy, and will appeal to scholars in comparative education where language and language policy studies represent a growing area of research interest.
The Economic Context for Language Choice.- The Political Context for Language Choice.- The Assistance Context for Language Choice.- The Assistance Context for Language Choice.- The Assistance Context for Language Choice.- Language Choice in a Nation Under Transition.- English Language Spread.
Language Choice in a Nation under Transition charts the spread of English into Cambodia and the French efforts to contest this spread in favor of their own language through an analysis of the country's recent history. This book proposes a synthesis of the national-functional and international-critical perspectives. This synthesis emerges from the Cambodian experience and thus adheres to Joshua Fishman's admonition that theory reflect the 'sharp bite of local detail and unique historical experience.'
