Motivations for Language Choice on Malaysian Courtrooms:

Implications for Language Planning

Richard Powell

An interesting study by a linguist on the use of languages, English and Malay, in Malaysian courts. While lawyers need to be proficient in both languages on qualification, Powell wonders whether justice would not be better served if there was a more concerted move towards a monolingual Malay language system. The research was carried out in courts, at various levels, in the Kuala Lumpur area. 98 pages.
