InterculturalCom: Language & Culture: Linguistic Discrimination (W7-P4) [VID] Fa16

What is linguistic discrimination?

Let's start with some examples.  What is happening in these examples?

"HUD Fair Housing Public Service Announcement"

"Linguistic Discrimination in School: African American English"
Note: The audio is a little out of sync on this YouTube video, but the content is informative.

So, what is linguistic discrimination?

Linguistic discrimination (also called linguicism and languagism) is "the unfair treatment of an individual based solely on their use of language" (Wikipedia).
