Language is a crucial component of national identity, and the acceptance of diverse languages within a society can contribute to social equality. In Australia, a society of immigrants, a continuing tension has existed since the nineteenth century between a desire for monolingualism, often a result of xenophobic policies of enforced assimilation, and an acceptance of multilingualism reflecting increased tolerance. At the present time, without even considering the 150 Aboriginal languages still spoken, Australia has an unparalleled mix of languages other than English in common usage. These are often described by the term "community languages". Drawing on census data and other statistics, this book addresses the current situation of community languages in Australia, analysing which are spoken, by whom and where. Community languages: The Australian experience focusses on three main issues:. how languages other than English are maintained in a predominantly English speaking environment;. how the structure of the languages themselves has changed over the years;. how the government has responded to such ethnolinguistic diversity, with particular emphasis on Australia's unique National Language Policy. At a time of unprecedented awareness of these languages within society and realisation of the importance of multilingualism in the commercial world, this book makes a significant contribution to understanding the role of community languages in both the shaping and the future of Australian society.

This book introduces a framework for examining bilingual identity and presents the cases of seven individual children from a study of young students’ bilingual identities in an Australian primary school. The new Bilingual Identity Negotiation Framework brings together three elements that influence bilingual identity development – sociocultural connection, investment and interaction. The cases comprise individual stories about seven young, bilingual students and are complemented by some more general investigations of bilingual identity from a whole class of students at the school. The framework is explained and supported using the students’ stories and offers readers a new concept for examining and thinking about bilingual identity. This book builds upon past and current theories of identity and bilingualism and expands on these to identify three interlinking elements within bilingual identity. The book highlights the need for greater dialogue between different sectors of research and education relating to languages and bilingualism. It adds to the increasing call for collaborative work from the different fields interested in language learning and teaching such as TESOL, bilingualism, and language education. Through the development of the framework and the students’ stories in this study, this book shows how multilingual children in one school in Australia developed their identities in association with their home and school languages. This provides readers with a model for examining bilingual identity in their own contexts, or a theoretical construct to consider in their thinking on bilingualism, language and identity.

This book addresses controversial issues in the application of the comparative method to the languages of Australia which have recently come to international prominence. Are these languages 'different' in ways that challenge the fundamental assumptions of historical linguistics? Can subgrouping be successfully undertaken using the Comparative Method? Is the genetic construct of a far-flung 'Pama-Nyungan' language family supportable by classic methods of reconstruction? Contrary to increasingly established views of the Australian scene, this book makes a major contribution to the demonstration that traditional methods can indeed be applied to these languages. These studies, introduced by chapters on subgrouping methodology and the history of Australian linguistic classification, rigorously apply the comparative method to establishing subgroups among Australian languages and justifying the phonology of Proto-Pama-Nyungan. Individual chapters can profitably be read either for their contribution to Australian linguistic prehistory or as case studies in the application of the comparative method. Contributions by: B.
