Heritage Languages in America book coverHeritage Languages in America: Preserving a National Resource

Joy Kreeft Peyton, Donald A. Ranard, and Scott McGinnis (Editors)

As this nation faces a critical shortage of adults with proficiency in languages other than English, we need to pay attention to our own rich linguistic resources, the languages spoken in ethnic communities across the United States. Heritage Languages in America outlines what needs to be done to help heritage language speakers develop their languages for use in academic and professional arenas. This book can be used by heritage community members, heritage and foreign language teachers and administrators, researchers, and policy makers to promote the maintenance and development of the languages in this country. 2001.
