Title: Language Ideologies, Policies and Practices
Subtitle: Language and the Future of Europe
Edited By: Clare Mar-Molinero

Description:

The contributors to Language Ideologies, Policies and Practices investigate
the workings of language ideologies in relation to other social processes
in a globalizing world. They explore in detail the specific ways in which
language ideologies underpin language policy and the relationship between
public policies and individual practices. Particular attention is given to
Europe, where the impetus to social transformation within and across
national boundaries is in renewed tension with conflicting national and
supra-national interests, with these tensions reflected in the complex
issues of language choice and language policy.
