Ideologies of Language Summary

Ideologies of Language by John E. Joseph (University of Edinburgh, UK)

Is the study of language ideologically neutral? If so, is this study objective and autonomous?

One of the most cherished assumptions of modern academic linguistics is that the study of language is, or should be, ideologically neutral. This professed ideological neutrality goes hand-in-hand with claims of scientific objectivity and explanatory autonomy. Ideologies of Language counters these claims and assumptions by demonstrating not only their descriptive inaccuracy but also their conceptual incoherence.
