Description: Because knowledge of exotic languages was so important for colonial power, linguistic scholarship was a crucial contributing element to colonial regimes. Linguistics in a Colonial World draws both on original texts and critical literature to survey methods, meanings, and uses of work by linguists in and for colonial projects. By tracing the shaping effects of the work of linguists on identities and communities, this book foregrounds the field's larger meanings and uses to confront broad practical and ideological challenges of colonial rule. Additionally, this volume traces continuities between colonial scholarship and current ways of thinking about language and cultural difference to offer new perspectives on post-colonial controversies about language endangerment and language rights in the globalized twenty-first century.
