Missionaries played a central role in establishing colonialism (intellectual conquest) in as much as they described the "exotic languages" they encountered as an instrument of their missionary work. The language standardization they worked towards often came with Eurocentric manipulation. This volume provides detailed insight into the interrelationship of colonialism, mission, language, and linguistics.
