Overview

Co-published by the Center for Applied Linguistics

Timely and comprehensive, this state-of-the-art overview of major issues related to heritage, community, and Native American languages in the United States, based on the work of noted authorities, draws from a variety of perspectives—the speakers; use of the languages in the home, community, and wider society; patterns of acquisition, retention, loss, and revitalization of the languages; and specific education efforts devoted to developing stronger connections with and proficiency in them. Contributions on language use, programs and instruction, and policy focus on issues that are applicable to many heritage language contexts. Offering a foundational perspective for serious students of heritage, community, and Native American languages as they are learned in the classroom, transmitted across generations in families, and used in communities, the volume provides background on the history and current status of many languages in the linguistic mosaic of U.S. society and stresses the importance of drawing on these languages as societal, community, and individual resources, while also noting their strategic importance within the context of globalization.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This anthology has a very broad scope. The chapters are relatively short, but the book is nonetheless comprehensive and well organized. Contributors include established, well-respected experts such as Joshua Fishman, as well as expert but newer scholars. ... A needed and useful collection. Summing Up: Highly recommended." - C.L. Thompson, Indiana University-Purdue University, Fort Wayne, in CHOICE, October 2014

"This welcome, and timely work [is distinguished by] its breadth and depth of coverage and expertise of the contributors." - G. Richard Tucker, Department of Modern Languages, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

"A valuable contribution to helping policy-makers and educators better understand the dimensions of the challenges and the largely untapped resources that reside in our heritage communities." - Catherine Ingold, Director, National Foreign Language Center, University of Maryland, USA

"…makes available in a single volume the current knowledge, insights, and experiences of many important leaders and researchers in the Heritage Language field. Usable by both professionals and students, it can serve as an introduction to the field, as a reference for those already involved in it, and as an inspiration to those who wish to contribute to this increasingly important enterprise." - Linda Godson, Coordinator, Heritage Language Initiative, Portland State University, USA
