Language Choice, Linguistic Capital, and Symbolic Domination in the European Union.
Loos, Eugene
Language Problems & Language Planning, v24 n1 p37-53 Spr 2000
Refers to Bourdieu's publication "Language and Symbolic Power," to explain the unwillingness of member states of the European Union to grant another language (other than English, French, and to a lesser degree German) recognition: an official language can be considered as linguistic capital that affords holders symbolic power.
