In the light of the notion of the African Renaissance, the book addresses
the African Ianguage question with particular emphasis on the high
potential and future roles of the indigenous languages for development in Africa.
Focus is on South Africa’s language policy as a role model for the whole
continent. The book makes an easy-to-read introduction to central issues of
language planning in Africa, for students of the social sciences, education, and
linguistics as much as for language practitioners, educationists, administrators,
politicians and decisions-makers. The rich appendices offer reference tools with
regard to sociolinguistic profiles of all African countries and important
documents regarding linguistic rights and the role of language in Africa.
