Abstract

All languages around the world find themselves ranked in the same hierarchies of power and politics, as do other systems of society. For example, in India, it is acceptable for a fluent speaker of English to not know Hindi, though the opposite scenario is a reflection of poor skills of an individual. Even within the same language, the differences in the way that people use the language tend to be on a continuum and may range from negligible variations to significant differences.
