Description:

World Languages Review aims to examine the sociolinguistic situation of the
world: to describe the linguistic diversity that currently characterizes
humanity, to evaluate trends towards linguistic uniformity, and to
establish a set of guidelines or language planning measures that favour the
weaker or more endangered linguistic communities, so that anyone engaged in
language planning--government officials, institution leaders, researchers,
and community members--can implement these measures.
