Abstract:If language regimes are the rules that delineate which languages can be used when and where--thereby institutionalizing the distribution of linguistic powers--what explains a government's language regime choice? Specifically, under what conditions are linguistic powers concentrated in the hands of the dominant group language, shared across several different languages, and neutralized via a lingua franca? In the dissertation, I argue language regimes are political institutions, and by extension, language regime choice is the product of bargaining between linguistic groups over institutional designs. Employing a Rubenstein bargaining model, I formally demonstrate language regime choice is the product of two components: the second period uncertainty and the socioeconomic hierarchy. I argue we are most likely to see (1) power-concentrating language regimes when the politically non-dominant group is socioeconomically dominant but the likelihood of it coming to power is low; (2) power-neutralizing language regimes under the aforementioned socioeconomic hierarchy conditions but when the likelihood of the non-dominant group coming to power is high; and (3) power-sharing language regimes when the politically dominant group is also the socioeconomically advantaged group. I test the generated propositions first on a cross-sectional dataset that includes all instances of political independence and democratic transitions between 1945 and 2000. I supplement the statistical analysis with a qualitative study of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore to get at (1) not just whether but why there is a correlation between the variables of interest; and (2) the degree--as opposed to just the type--of linguistic distribution.
