Abstract

Dominance, identity and resistance are key themes in this volume in which contributors examine language in global, virtual and local settings. Power is highly contextual and the chapters focus on concepts such as world languages, linguistic rights and minority protection. Migrants and their vernaculars feature prominently and several case studies explore the social strategies employed by speakers on non-indigenous tongues. Religion and belief are key underlying themes in the final chapters, which analyze the misunderstandings that can occur in sensitive political contexts.
