Jacobins, Regionalists, and the Council of Europe's Charter for Regional and Minority Languages.
Wright, Sue
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v21 n5 p414-24 2000
Charts the recent debates in France in response to the European Charter for Regional and Minority Languages that, if ratified and implemented, would grant limited protection to minority regional languages there. Examines the tenor and substance of the debates surrounding the fate of the charter. Argues that much of its opposition rests on France's longstanding Jacobin commitment to cultural and linguistic hegemony. (Author/VWL)
