English in the multilingual Nigeria: implications for users
Human activities are inextricably interwoven with language since language is the link between people and the affairs in the society. Its interaction with the society often produces a result which may be positive or negative. In a multilingual society like Nigeria, language use is somewhat challenging to harness. This paper studied the adoption of English as a second language in Nigeria with a focus on the political, economic, educational, psychological and socio-cultural implications. The results of its use are discussed as retrieved from literatures. This paper corroborated the literary assertions on the implications of the adoption of English in Nigeria.
