Abstract:

This volume explores the roots of Europe's struggle with multilingualism. Itargues that, over the centuries, the pursuit of linguistic homogeneity hasbecome a central aspect of the mindset of Europeans. In its extreme form, itbecame manifest in the principle of 'one language, one state, one people'.Consequently, multilingualism came to be viewed as an undesirable aberration.The authors of this volume approach the relationship between standardlanguages and multilingualism from a historical, cross-European perspective.They provide a comprehensive overview of the emergence of a standardlanguage ideology and its intricate relationship with matters of ethnicity,territorial unity and social mobility. They explain for different European languageareas in what ways the emergence of standard languages had an impact onmultilingual policies and practices. Its comparative approach makes this volumean important resource for linguists, researchers from different philologies andsocial historians.
