Nandi, Anik – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2018
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…

Placencia, María Elena; Fuentes Rodríguez, Catalina; Palma-Fahey, María – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2015
Nominal and pronominal address forms, which play a central role in the construction of interpersonal relations (cf. Bargiela et al. 2002; Clyne et al. 2009), have been the focus of attention in different linguistics subfields for several decades now.
