Abstract:

Now available in paperback

This book offers an inclusive perspective on the constellation of languages
in Europe by taking into account official state languages, regional
minority languages and immigrant minority languages. Although "celebrating
linguistic diversity" is one of the key propositions in the European
discourse on multilingualism and language policies, this device holds for
these three types of languages in a decreasing order. All three types of
languages, however, are constituent parts of a multilingual European
identity and should be taken into account in any type of language policy.
Both facts and policies on multilingualism and plurilingual education are
addressed in case studies at the national and European level. The selection
of case studies is based on a careful weighing of geographical spread of
countries and languages across Europe on the one hand, and availability of
established expert knowledge on the other.

After an Introduction to the theme of the book (Guus Extra and Durk
Gorter), Part I deals with official state languages with a focus on the
spread of English as lingua franca across Europe (Juliane House), on French
and France (Dennis Ager), on Polish in Poland and abroad (Justyna
Lesniewśka), and on language constellations in the Baltic States (Gabrielle
Hogan-Brun). Part II deals with regional minority languages with a focus on
Catalan in Spain (Francesc Xavier Vila i Moreno), Frisian in the
Netherlands (Durk Gorter et al.), Hungarian as a minority language in
Central Europe (Susan Gal), and Saami in the Nordic countries (Mikael
Svonni). Part III deals with immigrant minority languages in the United
Kingdom (Viv Edwards), Sweden (Lilian Nygren-Junkin), Italy (Monica Barni
and Carla Bagna) and Europe at large (Guus Extra and Kutlay Yağmur).

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
