Title
'But your face, it looks like you’re English': LangCrit and the Experiences of Multilingual Japanese-Canadian Children in Montreal
Abstract
The author engaged in a qualitative and exploratory case study inquiry with four multilingual Japanese-Canadian children, ages four to six, in their homes to investigate multilingualism and multilingual identities in Montreal. She concludes that the children demonstrated a keen sense of what languages are appropriate to use with whom and where. These ideas seem to be shaped by their impressions of not only what language one speaks (subject-as heard), but also how they look (subject-as-seen). The author provides information on Montreal's Japanese community.
