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.

Strand, Thea R. – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
In rural Valdres, Norway, the traditional regional dialect, called Valdresmål, has become an important resource for popular style and local development projects.

Perrino, Sabina – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
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. Through an analysis of political emblems, textual artifacts, and speech participants' stories, I examine how the…

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…

Yagmur, Kutlay – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019

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…

In this article, we investigate second/foreign language teachers' translingual identity development through a narrative approach to their life histories.

The aim of this article is to illustrate the fluid nature of family language policy (FLP) and how the realities of any one FLP are re-negotiated by caregivers and children in tandem. In particular, the paper will focus on the affective dimensions of FLP and will demonstrate how the same reality--in this case, a grandmother's use of a child-centred…

Macro-level policy makers, perceived as stakeholders of language management, employ a range of language policy strategies to legitimise hegemonic control over meso- (i.e. family) and micro- (i.e. individual) level language ideologies (Cassels-Johnson 2013). However, language policies of an individual are often difficult to detect because they are…
