Abstract:The maintenance of language boundaries is interpreted using the political economy model (Woolard 1985, Gal 1987, Heller 1992, Simmons 1999). Since immigrants' ability to fully integrate the linguistic marketplace remains inadequate, this unequal distribution of language resources encourages minority groups to develop parallel linguistic/economic markets. Language choice decisions are made according to local norms---choices that empower these workers in a context where economic concerns trump linguistic ideology in the province's efforts to integrate immigrants.
