Title: Languages in the Integrating World
Edited By: Marie Krčmová
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Communication 05

The book is devoted to one particular aspect of a problem which is quite
topical in these days: how the integration of today’s world manifests
itself in various languages. Integration is a reflection of relations
between cultures, often additionally backed up by economical relations and
also influenced by historical and political factors. Tendencies to
disintegration parallelly taking place can lead as far as to the
constitution of new languages or to the revival of cultural languages.
