This volume of essays assesses the current state of language policy and planning in Wales. It traces the historical development of the Welsh language struggle before turning to an analysis of the data sources which inform current policy decisions.
The contributors then offer a range of critical perspectives on the operation of bilingual educational policies ranging from nursery education to adult education. Special attention is paid to community development efforts as well as to comparable language revitalization efforts in Ireland, the Basque country and Catalonia. The volume concludes with an assessment of current economic and political programmes which offer an unprecedented opportunity to incorporate the Welsh language within mainstream social thought and action.
The scope and richness of this collection will make it a key reference for anyone interested in the phenomenon of language revival and language planning, Welsh society and history, public policy on language in society and bilingualism.
