Brown, Kara D. – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
This article explores policy and pedagogical pliability as strategies for perpetuating and protecting regional languages, like Võro, in the twenty-first century.

In this article, I explore how language revitalization initiatives are rescaled as part of a local, historical and sociocultural revitalization project in which ethnonationalist aspirations emerge in Northeastern Italy's Veneto region.

Sallabank, Julia – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
The Bailiwick of Guernsey is a small, semi-autonomous archipelago in the English Channel. Although it is a British Crown dependency and part of the British Isles, it has its own parliament and does not belong to the United Kingdom or the European Union. This unusual geopolitical situation means that the nation-state has little relevance. It is…

Leone-Pizzighella, Andrea – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
In Verona, Northern Italy, a music group is revalorizing a local "dialetto" ('dialect') by putting it to music. By both reviving hundred-year old songs and writing their own music and lyrics, they are widening the cultural reach that this language has and they are finding contemporary ways for people to engage with it. Unlike political…

Jiménez-Salcedo, Juan – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
This article analyzes the legislation of the two territories that have the most advanced legal framework regarding language policies towards Catalan: Andorra and Catalonia.

McLeod, Wilson – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
The Gaelic language in Scotland presents a useful case study for the conceptualisation of minority languages. A key issue has been the extent to which Gaelic is understood as belonging to a discrete minority within Scotland and a bounded territory in the northwest of the country, or as a national language of significance to all of Scotland. Using…

Viaut, Alain – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
The notion of "linguistic minority" not only incorporates the concept of group but also serves to define that group. Yet the relation between language and group can be considered in various ways. The primary function of language being that of communication, this will necessarily play a key role in defining the contours of any group whose…
