Abstract

This paper studies the global perspectives on multilingualism. It looks into the concepts, issues, problems and prospects as they apply to Igbo, a language spoken in South-Eastern Nigeria. Globalization is producing new ways of thinking about everything including language, and language is implicated in one or more significant ways in every major development that is discussed under the heading of globalization. Multilingualism, an issue that cuts across languages, is the use of more than two languages in a given speech community. A survey of languages spoken in Igboland demonstrates that Igbo speech community is a multilingual one. It is also observed that a major problem of globalization on multilingualism is the dominance of the English language. It is, however, suggested that there is hope of Igbo being used beyond Nigeria due to globalization.
