On Growth and Imperialism
L'expose s'oppose a cette theorie qui attribue trop de puissance a la World Conmllssion on C ulture and Development O"r Creative Diversity. Introduction With the demise of empire, most newly independent countries have had to struggle with the choice of official language policy.
Not imperialism': that is, that the spread of English as a post-colonial plot on the surprisingly, most of the former colonies ended up with English as one of their part of the core English-speaking countries, which hoped to maintain their official languages and, ultimately, the predominant language in education, dominance over 'periphery' mostly developing countries.
Another term introduced by Phillipson was 'linguicism', a situation where However, the retention of a former the imposition of a language - in this case, English - was equated to the colonial language as one of the official imposition of the cultural, social, emotional, and linguistic norms of the languages was not witho ut its fears and dominating society onto the dominated society, thus maintaining an unequal La commencement de la trepidation.
Much of the powerful allocation of power and resources. Phillipson further cites the preferential dominat ion de I'anglais it rhetoric denouncing the continued use allocation of educational resources to English in a multilingual environment as Singapore n'et ait pas Ie of colonial languages came from a good example of linguicism in action, and identifies two mechanisms Western intellectuals such as Fanon frequently used to legitimise this ideology in the context of English language resultat d'une imperialisme , who linked their continuing education.
First, the fact that English is the language of science and technology, linguist ique mais plutot use to the determination and ability of thus making it the only viable choice of modern education; and second, the d'une decision deliberee ex-colonial masters to maintain their effect of disconnecting ELT theory and practice from its broader societal economic, cultural, and political context. The Linked to the suspicion of'linguicism' is the accompanying fear that the nationaux et Ie peuple introduction of English into the dominance of English, if allowed to follow a natural course, will not only apres avoir soigneusement former British colonies, for example, diminish the use of minority languages but replace them entirely cf.

It was also categorised 'inferior' as a result of competition with other languages.
Once a language and evaluated in terms of norms that achieves hegemonic status, dominated languages are more easily perceived as were alien to it. Often a hierarchical relationship between the colonialiser and inferior, and their speakers internalise their lowly status. Consequently users the Other was instituted where the unchallenged point of reference was the abandon their language for the dominated one.
Throughout the world, similar culture of the coloniser. He uses theories of postmodernism to deconstruct the discourse of use of English. His argument is that one can never 'natural' and 'neutral', and attempted to deconstruct 'English' and 'ELL'. Tollefson , for example, relates the close relationship between language Pennycook develops the notion of the 'worldliness of English' and devotes two policy, power, and privilege.

Phillipson's timely book, Linguistic Imperialism, an extensive stu dy of the development and spread of ELT throughout the world - and a lucid Case study: Singapore account of 'North- South inequalities and exploitation' - received much It is my view that the concept of 'linguistic imperialism' ascribes too much attention w hen it firs t appeared.

Similarly, to ensure its survival, local conditions. The implementation of a national education system with Nanyang University was amalgamated with the National University of English as the medium of instruction came about through a 'bottom-up' rather Singapore through what was known as the Joint Campus scheme of It is also a unique country in the sense that it is a place facto but 'invisible' planner.

A study of Singapore is therefore a study of how English was concerned. When it came to the comme langue adoptee has edged Its way to become the principal school language, a major workplace crunch, they valued a situation that left en Afrique ou en Asie language, the language of government, and an ethnic link-language, as well as a traditional cultures open to risk but with natIve language for an increasing number of children. It must be noted, firstly, that it was a conscious choice on the part of the the full retention of ethnic pride and culture Smgapore government not to indulge in the linguistic nationalism of many but with diminishing material returns.
There was a pragmatic realisation that post-colonial countries but rather to concentrate on economic survival, which their lack of a command in English would mean the continued marginalisation was looked upon as invariably linked with political survival. In , at the of their children in a world that would continue to use the language to a point of independence, Singapore was segmented by deep ethnic and linguistic greater degree.
