Multilingualism in Europe: An Effective French Identity Strategy?
Oakes, Leigh
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v23 n5 p371-87 2002
Discusses transformation of the French language policy in Europe that in which the overt promotion of French as the European lingua franca was replaced with new policy promoting multilingualism. Examines the new policy in terms of its intentions and it effectiveness as an identity strategy. Suggests that not only does the policy exclude regional languages, France's multilingual policy does not always translate into a genuine interest in Europe's other languages. (Author/VWL)
