Constructing Linguistic and Ethnic Boundaries in a Basque Borderland: Negotiating Identity in Rioja Alavesa, Spain.
Hendry, Barbara
Language Problems and Language Planning, v21 n3 p216-33 Fall 1997
Examines effects of policies implemented by Basque Autonomous Community to reverse decline of the Basque language of Euskara and to restore its use throughout the Basque community on Rioja Alavesa, a borderland zone where Euskara has not been spoken since the middle ages. This case demonstrates the utility of a borderland context, where identities are indeterminate, for exploring the construction of ethnic and linguistic boundaries. (Author/VWL)
