Title: Sustaining Language Diversity in Europe
Subtitle: Evidence from the Euromosaic Project
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Minority Languages and Communities
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
Adopting a post-structuralist approach in analyzing the Euromosaic data about European minority language groups, Glyn Williams argues that different states construct minority language groups and speakers in different ways. This leads to an argument about the nature of democracy and how the current changes in governmental discourses accommodate linguistic and cultural diversity.
