The Language Planning Situation in Ireland
Laoire, Muiris O.
Current Issues in Language Planning, v6 n3 p251-314 Aug 2005
Language planning for the Irish language in the Republic of Ireland has featured prominently in international language policy and planning literature over the years. Researchers in the field may not be up to date, however, with recent developments in the area of Irish language planning and their impact on the language ecology. This monograph describes the language planning situation in the Republic of Ireland in its historical and social contexts as well as delineating language policy and planning for the Irish language implemented over the past number of years, showing developments in education, community, media, religion and local politics. (Contains 1 table and 1 note.)
