Beschreibung

This phenomenological and historical study explored the impact of the English language on the native languages and lives of the native Zimbabwean people. Data were collected through literature searches, formal and informal observations of language use by Zimbabweans. Analysis of data was done following the historical and phenomenological paradigms. Results showed that English indeed impacted the native languages of Zimbabwe in school instruction, social and economic aspects, prestige, power, the job market, communication, the media, political administration, and culture. While the status native languages in Zimbabwe was deteriorating that of English was growing threatening the native languages and cultures. General recommendations from the study are; 1. Raising the awareness of Zimbabwean people of the need and importance of all their native languages. 2. Language policy decisions should start at the grassroots level rather than being imposed from above. 3. Native languages should play a complementary role in the education of children. 4. Schools and mass media should provide programs that enhance native languages and native cultures.
