Description:
Publisher's description: "This book, which is based on a research study in southern Cameroon, is a study of the relationship between patterns of rural development and patterns of language use in a multilingual environment. At the micro level of the village, the research investigates villagers' language use, language attitudes, development activities and perceptions of development. Data is also presented on communication strategies of development agencies, and the match between these and language use is explored. Conclusions address the underlying issues of identity and power in development interaction.
