Texte du rabat

Australia is a country with a wide diversity of languages in a world in which there are more multilinguals than monolinguals. This book explores the paradox of a nation rich in language resources, yet characterized by monolingual thinking. With insight and passion, Michael Clyne illustrates the ways in which our language resources can be consolidated and further developed for universal benefit.
