Abstract:

Many Europeans speak a first language that is not the standard language of
the country they live in: languages with millions of speakers like Catalan
and languages with few speakers like Gaelic; languages spoken across the
border like German in Denmark and Italian in Slovenia; and immigrant
languages like Turkish in Sweden. Many minority languages have experienced
some revitalization, but now face new threats from an increasingly
integrated Europe, from globalization and innovations in mass communication
and from the challenges posed by spread of English. The chapters in this
book, written by experts in several fields, discuss these issues both in
general and in specialized chapters with vivid, up-to-date examples from
the Baltic to the Mediterranean, from Ireland to Turkey.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
