    Reviews

    "Editors Peter Auer and Li Wei make a convincing case for a critically reflexive problem-solving approach when they ask whether it would make more sense to regard monolingualism as a problem. It provides a good starting place for anyone looking for a current overview of issues and approaches."
    Suzanne Romaine in: Language 1/2009
