Liddicoat, Anthony J.
Current Issues in Language Planning, v9 n2 p129-153 2008
This paper examines ways in which language planning has been used to address issues of security. It gives an overview of a range of areas of security in which government-level language planning has had a role as a way of developing a typology of language planning work in this area. It examines the nexus between language, communication and security found in language planning activities with a security focus and critiques the conceptual bases on which language solutions are introduced into security problems.
