IS A WHOLE BRITISHNESS POSSIBLE IN BRITAIN?
IS A WHOLE BRITISHNESS POSSIBLE IN BRITAIN?

Ayşe SEVİMLİ [1]


Bu çalışmanın amacı birçok çeşitliliğe sahip olan Britanya gibi bir adada tam bir İngilizliliğin mümkün olup olmadığını ortaya çıkartmaktır. Bu çalışma İngilizliliğin neden mümkün olmadığının sebeplerini açıklamaktadır. Bu imkansızlık için üç sebep sunmaktadır. Ilk sebep İngilterenin yanında, İskoçya, Galler, ve Kuzey İrlanda olduğu için çok ulusluluk olarak gösterilmektedir. İkinci sebep Pakistan, Hindistan ve Bangledeş gibi ülkelerden göçmenler aldığı için çoklu etnik azınlıklar olarak gösterilmektedir ve son sebep olarakta  birçok çeşit dil, aksan ve lehçe barındırdığından çok dillilik gösterilmektedir. 

The aim of this study is to reveal whether a whole Britishness is possible in an island like Britain who has lots of diversities. This paper explains the reasons of why a whole Britishness is not possible. It offers three reasons for this impossibility. The first one is reflected as Multi-nationality as there are Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland beside England. The second one is reflected as Multi-ethnic minorities as there are migrants from other countries like Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh and the last one is reflected as multilingualism as there is seen different kinds of languages as well as different kinds of accents and dialects.
