Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book examines the role that language has played in forming modern European nations. With language an omnipresent issue within the European Union, the importance languages have played within the histories and present situations of member nations is a crucial topic. Drawing on an international cast of contributors, the book explores the issues of monolingualism vs. plurilingualism within individual nations, the revival of languages in nations such as former soviet republics, and concludes with a look at language in the electronic age.

Synopsis:

As Europe moves closer to adopting English and its de facto lingua franca, this collection of essays explores the links between politics, nationalism monolingualism, and multilingualism
