Abstract

In this course, we will examine how multilingual language use has become part of the social fabric of the globalized everyday life with reference to language policy and planning in different countries. More specifically, we will investigate the specificities and draw comparisons of different language rights and how they are implemented in various parts of the world. In addition, attention will be paid on the challenges that policy-makers face in their attempts to regulate language behaviour of individuals or groups. We will also look at factors as well as the process that contribute language inequality: promoting national/official languages while disregarding language varieties of minority groups in the multilingual environment of today’s globalized world.
