This book, focused on corpus planning in language policy, provides a broad, integrative framework and also discusses multiple languages in detail. It provides readers with great familiarity with a wide range of language cases and at the same time gives them the theoretical tools and analysis to see how they inter-relate. The novelty of this volume is twofold: First, it deals with corpus planning alone (modernizing a language per se), and second, it does so in terms of a systematization of the often unconscious language status aspirations that both guide language planners themselves and motivate the lay public (the target population of all language planning). Corpus planning is going on all over the world today and inevitably becomes an expression of the societal goals, ideologies, and aspirations of the societies and cultures that support it. The implication is that the distinction between corpus and status planning, which has a long tradition in language planning research, must be critically re-examined. DO NOT Leave Your Language Alone: The Hidden Status Agendas Within Corpus Planning in Language Policy begins with a brief introduction to language planning as a whole, to corpus planning in particular, and to the unavoidability of a status component in the execution of all corpus planning past, present, and future. Topics of the central chapters include: *corpus planning and status planning: separates, opposites, or Siamese twins?; *the directions and dimensions of corpus planning; *does "folksiness" come before or after "cleanliness"?; *the bi-polar dimension of uniqueness vs. Westernization; *the classicization vs. "panification" bi-polar dimension; *the Ausbau vs. Einbau bi-polar dimension; *the interdependence and independence of dimensional clusters; and *can opposites and incommensurables be combined? Written at an introductory level assuming no prior knowledge of the field, this book is intended as a text for higher undergraduate and lower graduate level courses in language planning and policy. It is equally valuable for researchers in the field of language planning, policy, and politics, as well as those in sociolinguistics, political science, and communication studies more generally--that is, for all who are interested in fostering or limiting human intervention in the language change processes that are ongoing worldwide. Finally, an introduction to corpus planning that is full of historical vignettes, good humor, visual illustrations, and cutting-edge thought!

Ob es um die Rechtschreibreform geht, um Anglizismen im Deutschen oder um den Umgang mit Migranten- oder Minderheitensprachen – Debatten und Meinungen zu Sprache(n) und Sprachformen sind Teil unseres Alltages. Dass Sprache auch Gegenstand der Politik ist, also Sprache und das Verhältnis von Sprachen in der Gesellschaft – bewusst oder unbewusst – gesteuert werden, wird dagegen in deutschsprachigen Kontexten eher selten thematisiert. Diese Einführung gibt einen Überblick über Ansätze, Praktiken, Theorien und Perspektiven auf wichtige Bereiche der Sprach(en)politik. Der erste Teil erläutert den theoretischen Hintergrund, der zweite Teil stellt eine Reihe von Ländern vor, die beispielhaft für wichtige Ansätze der sprachpolitischen Praxis stehen, aber auch nach ihrer Bedeutung für die größten philologischen Fächer (Germanistik, Anglistik, Romanistik) ausgewählt wurden. Damit liegt die erste systematische deutschsprachige Einführung in ein Thema vor, das international seit langem ein großes Maß an Aufmerksamkeit erhält. Sie richtet sich an Studierende und Lehrende sprachwissenschaftlicher Fächer und Nachbardisziplinen ebenso wie an Akteure der sprachpolitischen Praxis.

Language Policy beyond the State invites readers to (re-)consider the ways language policy is constituted, taken up, and researched if we look within and past the state. Contributors to this edited volume draw attention to language policy as always in the making, focusing on agency, on-the-ground practices, and ideologies. The chapters of the book reveal how simultaneous, and at times contradicting, language policies exist within a state and explore the complex roles played by families, businesses, educational institutions, and media in generating and appropriating these policies. By moving away from language policy analysis concerned primarily with how official state policies address well-defined language problems, some of the contributions of the volume highlight how the problems themselves can be ideological artifacts or are discursively constructed in language ideological debates that are provoked by changes in the geopolitical situation in the region. Using qualitative and descriptive research, the book uses Estonia as a setting to examine the ways historic and contemporary populations navigate language policies in both local and transnational spaces. As a whole, the collection speaks eloquently and powerfully to current efforts to understand and map the ways multiple institutions and individuals—not just the state—play an active role in forming and taking up language policies.
