New speakers are an increasingly important aspect of the revitalization of minority languages since, in some cases, they can make up the majority of the language community in question. This volume examines this phenomenon from the viewpoint of three minority languages: Breton, Yiddish and Lemko.

This book represents the first collection specifically devoted to New Speaker Studies, focusing on language ideologies and practices of speakers in a variety of minority language communities. Over thirteen chapters, it uses the new speaker lens to investigate not only linguistic issues, such as language variation and change, phonetics, morphosyntax, language acquisition, code-switching, but also sociolinguistic issues, such as legitimacy, integration, and motivation in language learning and use. Besides covering a range of languages - Basque, Breton, Galician, Giernesiei, Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Welsh - and their different sociolinguistic situations, the chapters also encompass a series of interactional settings: institutional settings, media and the home domain, as well as different contexts for becoming a new speaker of a minority language, such as by migration or through education. This collection represents an output by a lively network of researchers: it will appeal to postgraduate students, researchers and academics working in the field of sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, language policy and those working within minority language communities.

This volume brings together contributions from a range of scholars, not only from the Celtic heartlands, but further afield such as Austria, Canada and Poland. The chapters are based upon a number of presentations on a wide range of Celtic Studies given at a conference in Poznań, Poland, in October 2014. The book, as such, emphasizes the international aspect of the field, and highlights the relatively strong position of Celtic Studies in Poland, through the inclusion of Polish scholars working on Irish and Breton, and by introducing an academic audience to the ‘conversation’ on Celtic matters which was held recently on Polish soil. Celtic Studies are currently undergoing a series of changes with respect to the approaches adopted, and the field is brought into question in this volume with an examination of the notion of Celtoscepticism, which, as pointed out, when tackled in the right way, can breathe new life into the subject and can be viewed as a positive movement. As such, a number of contributions here problematize the changes in thinking of many linguists over the concept of who is a speaker of a Celtic language and how well they speak it, as well as the connection between traditional Celtic cultural practices and the concept of well-being. The volume also provides chapters on Mediaeval Celtic Studies which showcase the work of a number of emerging scholars in the field, who examine various aspects of Celtic textuality in Mediaeval Scotland, Brittany and Wales. Indeed, this book gives voice to a number of early career scholars, placing them carefully alongside more established scholars in the field, in order to show the continuation of established methods of investigation.

Die Fragen -Gibt es einen erfassbaren Mehrwert fur die Mehrheitsbevolkerung durch ihr Zusammenleben mit Minderheiten?- und -Welchen Nutzen haben Mehrheitsbevolkerungen von der positiven Diskriminierung ihrer Minderheiten, welchen Nachteil von ihrer negativen Diskriminierung?- sind eine fur Europa noch ungewohnliche Perspektive fur die Betrachtung von Minderheiten. Das Collegium PONTES Gorlitz-Zgorzelec-Zhořelec hat unter Schirmherrschaft der Aussenminister der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, der Republik Polen und der Tschechischen Republik eine Reihe eminenter Wissenschaftler und geistiger Exponenten eingeladen, gemeinsam uber Minderheiten nachzudenken und mogliche Zukunftswege und Moglichkeiten aufzuzeigen. Der vorliegende Band versammelt die zentralen, in Gorlitz diskutierten Texte; weitere Beitrage wurden unter www.kultur.org veroffentlicht."
