One might argue that this attitude towards language change and development has carried over into many of the English influenced colonial and post-colonial situations in the Pacific. Language planning decisions are not made in detail, but left implicitly for the education system to develop and implement. As we will see in the chapters in this book, the degree to which such a generalization is valid varies with the situation. In the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, for instance, it would appear the generalized hypothesis is more accurate than in Malaysia and Brunei.
