"By focusing on how bilingual students conceptualize and understand linguistic divisions and differentiations and whether or not they ever resolve their metalinguistic conflicts over linguistic borders and boundaries, this book explores the ideas and beliefs held by dual immersion students on language itself and how their heightened self-awareness of language raised them towards a transcendental understanding of language. The shaping of cultural identities is also analyzed through an interdisciplinary cultural studies framework in order not only to understand the possibility of how, when and where language use patterns and linguistic borders and boundaries could change, but also to gain a better understanding of how differences in class, gender, race, ethnicity and language shape how we analyze a classroom and how classrooms are seen through these differences."--BOOK JACKET.
