Language and the State: Israel and Ireland.
Wright, Sue
Current Issues in Language and Society, v2 n3 p173-75 1995
Examines the question of language revitalization against the background of the use of Hebrew as the language of public life in Israel and of Irish as an official language of Ireland. Notes that the organizing principles of nationalism are complex and disputed. The different linguistic outcomes in these two countries point up the complexity and unpredictability of language planning. (Four references) (CK)
