Meeting Description: The 'making' and maintaining of a standard variety is invariably tied to the speech community's beliefs and attitudes about their own and other languages and varieties. These beliefs and attitudes and their linguistic and sociolinguistic consequences have been discussed under the heading 'linguistic ideologies'. Linguistic ideologies not only affect the surface level of language (lexicon and phonology). They may as well have an impact on the morphosyntactic layer and thereby become also a factor in the grammar of a language.
