Linguistic Policies and the Survival of Regional Languages in France and Britain

Linguistic Policies and the Survival of Regional Languages in France and Britain

It was traditionally assumed that a single official language was necessary for the wellbeing of the state, particularly in France and Britain. This assumption is now questioned, and regional languages are making, in some cases, an impressive comeback. This book analyses a range of languages' development, decline and efforts at regeneration.
