In his 1972 paper, 'The ecology of language', Einar Haugen called for
answers to a series of questions by a range of specialists to give a full
picture of the ecology of a language. Two groups of specialists he appealed
to were 1) specialists in dialinguistics, and 2) specialists in
glottopolitics. My spell-checker doesn't like the look of either of those!
How widespread do these names remain as descriptions of subdisciplines of
Linguistics, and what do people understand by them by contrast with e.g.
historical linguistics and language politics respectively?
