Abstract:

Language without Rights is a book-length critique of the concept of
language rights. Synthesizing insights from a variety of disciplines,
including linguistic anthropology, sociolinguistics, sociology and
political philosophy, Wee demonstrates how the appeal to language rights
faces a number of conceptual and practical problems, particularly because
the discourse of rights is fundamentally inconsistent with the socially
variable nature of language. The book also explores an alternative that is
more in tune with the complexities of language in social life by suggesting
that issues involving language are better managed within a model of
deliberative democracy.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
