Liddicoat, Anthony J. – AILA Review, 2018

Perrin, Daniel – AILA Review, 2018

Whitehouse, Marlies – AILA Review, 2018
Wider parts of society-at-large are not fluent in the language of numbers, and financial literacy in particular is low in many countries (OECD, 2014).

Stroud, Christopher; Williams, Quentin – AILA Review, 2017
The challenge of contemporary South Africa is that of building a (post)nation of postracial equity in a fragmented world of a globalized ethical, economic and ecological meltdown. In this paper, we seek to explore the idea of multilingualism as a technology in the conceptualization of alternative, competing futures. We suggest that multilingualism…

Rojo, Luisa Martín; Portillo, Cristina – AILA Review, 2015

McKinney, Carolyn – AILA Review, 2015
This paper focuses on the lack of impact on language education of recent paradigm shifts in the study of language and society such as the recognition of the ideology of language[s] as stable, discrete or bounded entities and the reality of heteroglossic languaging and semiotic practices in everyday life. Using South Africa as a case, the paper…

Canagarajah, Suresh – AILA Review, 2009
There has been a plurilingual tradition of communication in South Asia since precolonial times. Local scholars consider pluringualism as "natural" to the ecology of this region.

Ruanni, T.; Tupas, F. – AILA Review, 2009
Fixation on language in language policy debates is not a natural given. In fact, it has to be re-examined. This paper argues that another effective way to look at language policy is to suspend talk on language, and instead first engage with social development issues where people are at the heart of the social landscape. It discusses three ways of…

Curiously these mother tongues have been…
