Editors: Quynh Lê and Thao Lê (University of Tasmania, Tasmania, Australia)
Book Description:
The world is becoming more and more intricately multidimensional, both culturally and linguistically. Language is so deeply embedded in culture that cultural identity is defined to a great extent in terms of language. Based on this premise, the loss of one’s language contributes to the loss of one’s culture. This is the reason it is essential to maintain one’s linguistic integrity in order to protect one’s cultural identity. This new book captures the fundamental concepts and issues raised in this context. (Imprint: Nova Press)
