The three main themes we engage in this book, language, identity and mobility overlap in several aspects, though the link between language and social identity would likely seem the most obvious for most people.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Brill||Copyright (published version):||2015 the authors||Keywords:||Suriname;Sociolinguistics;Mobility;Identity||DOI:||10.1163/9789004280120_002||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Carlin, E.B., Leglise, I., Migge, B. and Tjon Sie Fat, P.B.
