This book is about bilingualism and its benefits. It is a compilation of papers written in English and French that showcase the bilingualism of the contributors. The volume sheds light on bilingualism and bilinguals as harbingers of a close rapport with otherness. Even in uncharted and divisive situations where language use becomes highly indexed, bilinguals can metamorphose into linguistic and cultural turncoats and accommodate to the hostile host environment. This book will be of interest to academics in the fields of language, bilingualism and multilingualism and to language policymakers in general and in Africa in particular. This book will be an invaluable resource for language scholars, professionals and policymakers alike.
