In line with the overall perspective of the Handbook series, the focus of
Volume 9 is on language-related problems arising in the context of
linguistic diversity and change, and the contributions Applied Linguistics
can offer for solutions.

Part I, "Language minorities and inequality", presents situations of
language contact and linguistic diversity as world-wide phenomena. The
focus is on indigenous and immigrant linguistic minorities, their (lack of)
access to linguistic rights through language policies and the impact on
their linguistic future.

Part II "Language planning and language change", focuses on the impact of
colonialism, imperialism, globalisation and economics as factors that
language policies and planning measures must account for in responding to
problems deriving from language contact and linguistic diversity.

Part III, "Language variation and change in institutional contexts",
examines language-related problems in selected institutional areas of
communication (education, the law, religion, science, the Internet) which
will often derive from socioeconomic, cultural and other non-linguistic

Part IV, "The discourse of linguistic diversity and language change",
analyses linguistic diversity, language change and language reform as
issues of public debates which are informed by different ideological
positions, values and attitudes (e.g. with reference to sexism, racism, and
political correctness).

The volume also contains extensive reference sections and index material.
