Language Description, Language Prescription, and Language Planning.
Bruthiaux, Paul
Language Problems and Language Planning, v16 n3 p221-34 Fall 1992
A paradox is discussed that underlies the aims of linguists who attempt to influence, deliberately and systematically, the linguistic behavior of a community, while trying to avoid charges of prescriptivism. A balance between promoting feasible economic units and preserving linguistic diversity is advocated. (57 references) (Author/LB)
