Shunning polemicism and fashioning a new agenda for a critically informed yet practically orientated approach, this book explores aspects of multilingual education in the People's Republic of China (PRC). Amongst other issues, it also looks at the challenges associated with bilingual and trilingual education in Xinjiang and Tibet as well as the mediation between religion and culture in multi-ethnic schools, covering these issues from a range of perspectives - Korean, Uyghur, Tibetan, Mongolian and Yi. The PRC promotes itself as a harmonious, stable multicultural mosaic, with over 50 distinct ethnic groups striving for common prosperity. Beneath this rhetoric, there is also inter-ethnic discord, with scenes of ethnic violence in Lhasa and Urumqi over the last few years. China has a complex system of multilingual education - with dual-pathway curricula, bilingual and trilingual instruction, specialised ethnic schools. This education system is a lynchpin in the Communist party state's efforts to keep a lid on simmering tensions and transform a rhetoric of harmony into a critical pluralistic harmonious multiculturalism. This book examines this supposed lynchpin.

Significant socio-political changes in China have had great impact on Chinese discourse. Changes to the discourse have become an increasing focus of scholarship. This book examines contemporary Chinese discourse and social practice in China with a focus on the role that language plays in the on-going transformation of Chinese society. With a view to producing new insights into the interdependence between discourse and social practice, this volume explores how discourse has been changing in a context-dependent way; how social practice can lead to shifts in the use of discourse; and how identities and attitudes are constructed through language use. Largely based on empirical studies, this book indicates that Chinese discourse has not only been an integral part of social change, but also Chinese discourse itself is changing, reflecting ideologies, values, attitudes, identities and social practice. The book is a great resource for scholars in diverse disciplinary studies including linguistics, communication, education, media and political studies concerning contemporary China.

This provocative defense of language diversity works through the strengths and weaknesses of liberal political theory to inform language policy. The book presents the argument that policy must occupy the space between 'linguistics of community' and 'linguistics of contact' in a way that balances individual autonomy and group recognition while not reifying 'language'. Drawing on the importance of the language/identity link, the author distinguishes between language negative liberalism and language positive liberalism, arguing against the former. This distinction orients consideration of increasingly specific language policy issues, such as official languages, language rights, bilingual education, and uses of language varieties within classrooms.

Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist es, die Grundfunktionen der vier chinesischen Aspektgrammeme -le, -guo, -zhe und zai- und die der aspektrelevanten Modalpartikel le aus ihren jeweiligen Teilfunktionen abzuleiten. Diese ergeben sich hauptsächlich aus dem Zusammenwirken von grenzorientierten Sachverhaltstypen und den Aspektgrammemen. Der gegenwärtige Forschungsstand der chinesischen Aspektologie ist zwei Faktoren wegen unbefriedigend: zum einen wegen der fehlenden Distinktion zwischen Aspekt und Aktionsart, zum anderen wegen der unzulänglichen Berücksichtigung der Verbsemantik und anderer aspektrelevanter Elemente im Satz. Die typologische Stellung der Aspektgrammeme wird, wo möglich, durch Kontrastierung mit funktional naheliegenden Ausdrucksmitteln (Perfektiv, Imperfektiv, Perfekt, Progressiv, Resultativ, usw.) in anderen Sprachen (insb. Russisch, Französisch, Englisch, Samoanisch, guyanesische Kreolsprache) näher bestimmt.
