Description

Dominance, identity and resistance are key themes in this examination of language in global, virtual and local settings. It focuses on world languages, linguistic rights and minority protection. Case studies explore the social strategies employed by migrants speaking non-indigenous tongues and the effect of religion in sensitive political contexts.

'...this edited collection provides a wealth of information and insights on the nature of conflicts (and potential conflicts) connected to language choice in public life, education and religion.' - Language Policy

'The contributions to this very interesting book succeed admirably in presenting and analyzing a wide variety of issues.' - Discourse Analysis

'The contributions to this very interesting book suceeds admirably in presenting and analyzing a wide variety of issues - mostly concerning Europe - looking into powerful languages such as Englis, minority languages such as Irish, and immigrant languages such as Chinese and Arabic. Each chapter includes an overview of the literature and offers attested examples, but beyond the intrinsic interest of the single essays the reader does appreciate the strong interconnection between them. The book is surprisingly unified, each chapter seems to anticipate the following, this the discussion on the various case studies turns out to be enjoyably readable and not fragmentary.' - Paola Attolino, The Linguist, Sep. 2008
