Abstract:

This book offers an inclusive perspective on the constellation of languagesin Europe by taking into account official state languages, regionalminority languages and immigrant minority languages. Although "celebratinglinguistic diversity" is one of the key propositions in the Europeandiscourse on multilingualism and language policies, this device holds forthese three types of languages in a decreasing order. All three types oflanguages, however, are constituent parts of a multilingual Europeanidentity and should be taken into account in any type of language policy.Both facts and policies on multilingualism and plurilingual education areaddressed in case studies at the national and European level. The selectionof case studies is based on a careful weighing of geographical spread ofcountries and languages across Europe on the one hand, and availability ofestablished expert knowledge on the other.

After an Introduction to the theme of the book (Guus Extra and DurkGorter), Part I deals with official state languages with a focus on thespread of English as lingua franca across Europe (Juliane House), on Frenchand France (Dennis Ager), on Polish in Poland and abroad (JustynaLesniewśka), and on language constellations in the Baltic States (GabrielleHogan-Brun). Part II deals with regional minority languages with a focus onCatalan in Spain (Francesc Xavier Vila i Moreno), Frisian in theNetherlands (Durk Gorter et al.), Hungarian as a minority language inCentral Europe (Susan Gal), and Saami in the Nordic countries (MikaelSvonni). Part III deals with immigrant minority languages in the UnitedKingdom (Viv Edwards), Sweden (Lilian Nygren-Junkin), Italy (Monica Barniand Carla Bagna) and Europe at large (Guus Extra and Kutlay Yağmur).
