Description
 
Suzette Haden Elgin (au). Examines the power of language to shape our lives. Confronts some of the most pressing issues parents & educators face today: Is it a good or bad idea for Amer. to have command of more than one lang.? Should it be a goal of the public educational system? Drawing on examples from the worlds of med., bus., religion, & family life, Elgin examines the complex relationship between lang. & culture. She provides a wide range of cases to show that lang. has extraordinary power to affect our perception of reality; learning a lang. gains another worldview. Learning more than one lang. enhances rather than stunts intellectual develop. The very process makes the brain more receptive to new ideas.
