Funding: 2011: $40,000

Project Member(s): Pennycook, A., Otsuji, E.

Start year: 2011

Summary: Metrolingualism has recently been coined as a term to describe the use of multilingual resources in urban contexts. Through detailed analysis of language use in four urban sites, this project will develop our understanding of metrolingual language practices as well as our understanding of the ways in which urban spaces are managed linguistically.
