In recent years, the relevant data has revealed continuous growth in knowledge of Basque. Formal education has played a significant role in this advance, in which young speakers have been front and centre.

Puigdevall, Maite; Pujolar, Joan; Colombo, Alba – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2022
Previous studies of linguistic "mudes" in minority language contexts, this is, biographical junctures where speakers enact changes in their linguistic repertoire, have contributed to our understanding of how linguistic codes are appropriated across the lifespan using a largely temporal frame of reference. However, our research in Catalan…

Gimeno-Monterde, Chabier; Sorolla, Natxo – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2022
Aragonese is a threatened Romance language immersed in a historical process of substitution by Spanish, the official language.

A critical approach to "neofalante," newspeakers of Galician and their theoretical framework, is presented. In order to do so, we take as a case study some of its documented cases as a popular notion, its transformations, and its mobilisation in the planning discourse, along with its construction and evolution as an analytical category…
