Costa-Carreras, Joan – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2020

Vogel, Anna – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2020
Corpus planning has attracted attention ever since Deborah Cameron's seminal "Verbal Hygiene" (1995).

Sámi University of Applied Sciences (SUAS) in Norway is one of few institutions of higher education worldwide that mainly operates in an Indigenous language.

Noda, Mamiko; O'Regan, John P. – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2020
This article focuses upon the Japanese government's decision in 2009 to direct an 'English-only' strategy for English language education in senior high schools from 2013.

Sharbawi, Salbrina; Jaidin, Jainatul Halida – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2020
In 2009, Brunei's Ministry of Education unveiled the National Education System for the twenty-first century, popularly termed the SPN21, to replace the 1984 bilingual education system (the "Dwibahasa"). What immediately stood out about the SPN21 is the apparent heavier emphasis placed on English over the Official language, "Bahasa…

Heugh, Kathleen; Stroud, Christopher; Scarino, Angela – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2019
In this paper we draw attention to people who journey from one temporal and spatial setting towards another in the 'South', who aspire to a reconfigured sense of belonging, prosperity and wellbeing, and their multilinguality and multilingualisms. Through three vignettes of journeys we illustrate how in changing of place that linguistic diversities…

The aim of this chapter is to take a critical and decolonial stance towards the experiences of Indigenous people in the urban diasporas of Brazil.

Simpson, Jane; Wigglesworth, Gillian – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2019
The diversity of language in Australia in pre-invasion times is well attested, with at least 300 distinct languages being spoken along with many dialects. At that time, many Indigenous people were multilingual, often speaking at least four languages. Today many of these languages have been lost, with fewer than 15 being learned by children as a…

Heugh, Kathleen; Stroud, Christopher – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2019
We frame multilingualisms through a growing interest in a linguistics and sociology of the 'south' and acknowledge earlier contributions of linguists in Africa, the Américas and Asia who have engaged with human mobility, linguistic contact and consequential ecologies that alter over time and space. Recently, conversations of multilingualism have…

Amery, Rob – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2019
Following the invasion, or colonisation as some prefer to call it, Indigenous Australia has been characterised by plummeting populations, largely as a result of introduced diseases and the movement of peoples, following the theft of their lands and in response to colonial and subsequent Australian state and federal government policies. At times,…
