The Search

Follow a little boy and a penguin on their little adventure up in the mountain in search of something very special—Lonely Not. Along the way, they found smallness, eternity, freedom, tranquility, trust, waltz of the water, songs of the mountain and eventually, each other. This simple yet poetic picture-book features beautiful water-colour illustrations inspired by the idyllic landscapes of outskirt Wonju (원주), Korea where the author stayed for near to 3 months while on a residency.

Life’s Little Instructions... Stand tall and hold your head high; Life is not about pleasing everyone. Life’s Little Moments... The most memorable moments are most probably those moments you didn’t give up. Life’s Little Ironies... Someone calls you their best friend, but will stab you in your back at the most convenient moment. Life’s Little Pleasures... Finding joy in the little things that choose to move around us silently, it may not necessarily hold great value but it’s where happiness and sweet blossoms bloom. Main character: Jugi Hobby: Woolgathering Age: Immutable Motto: If you can dream about it, then take the necessary steps, and your dream will become reality. Who is Jugi? It could be you, It could be me, It could be now, It could be the future. Everyone has a right to life; Everyone has the right to say no.

Mandarin Spread in Malaysia (UM Press)

This book is the first of its kind on Mandarin spread in Malaysia. The author investigated the language situation in the Chinese community in Johor and proposed a theoretical framework to analyze language spread. In her proposal, mass media in Mandarin and Chinese education play significant roles in Mandarin spread. Both top-down and bottom spread are found, which is different from the process of English spread elsewhere. With the spread of Mandarin, more and more Chinese abandon Chinese dialects and identify with the pan-Chinese identity. Mandarin spread is a dynamic process, which is triggered by an internal force, i.e. sociolinguistic realignment of the community. In this book, the author compares Johor with Kuala Lumpur and Singapore in terms of their sociolinguistic realignment process. This is a book for sociolinguists, language planners, students of linguistics, school teachers, and general readers

Multilingualism and Language Diversity in Urban Areas

This state-of-the-art volume provides an interdisciplinary overview of current topics and research foci in the areas of linguistic diversity and migration-induced multilingualism and aims to lay the foundations for interdisciplinary work and the development of a common methodological framework for the field. Linguistic diversity and migration-induced multilingualism are complex, mufti-faceted phenomena that need to be studied from different, complementary perspectives. The volume comprises a total of fourteen contributions from linguistic, educationist, and urban sociological perspectives and highlights the areas of language acquisition, contact and change, multilingual identities, urban spaces, and education. Linguistic diversity can be framed as a result of current processes of migration and globalization. As such the topic of the present volume addresses both a general audience interested in migration and globalization on a more general level, and a more specialized audience interested in the linguistic repercussions of these large-scale societal developments.
