Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."
Lexikon sprachtheoretischer Grundbegriffe des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts
With its 60 articles on some 200 terms, the dictionary provides a description of the individual concepts in which 17th and 18th century thinking on language was represented in texts. Account is taken not only of the synchronic perspective and the continuation of tradition, but also of the epochal dynamics which made it possible for 17th and 18th century thinking on language to provide possible conceptualisations for succeeding ages.
