Abstract:

Within the European context, linguistic diversity can be studied at thelevel of both official state languages and non-national languages. Thiscomprehensive overview offers insightful crossnational and crosscontinentalperspectives on non-national languages in terms of both regional andimmigrant languages. The book focuses on mapping linguistic diversity inboth the private and public domain. Methodological issues and empiricaloutcomes are explored for a variety of European and non-European countriesand languages.

The book consists of four parts. Part 1 provides an introduction to thesubject, as well as an overview and discussion of migration statistics andlanguage use. Part 2 deals with the mapping of regional languages inEurope, exemplified by case studies on Welsh, Basque, and Frisian. Part 3focuses on immigrant languages in Europe and includes case studies fromboth national (Switzerland, Italy, France) and crossnational (MultilingualCities Project) perspectives. Part 4 turns to mapping linguistic diversityabroad with case studies on Australia, South Africa, Turkey, and Japan.
