About this title


Most academic work in language planning has focused on national and governmental activities relating to language – macro language planning. Language problems potentially exist at all levels of human activity, including the local contexts of communities and institutions – micro language planning. Micro language planning occurs in both formal and informal contexts and is based in and around the everyday language needs and aspirations of communities and institutions. Micro language planning also articulates with macro language planning: local language problems can provide the impetus for national level action and national level planning needs to be implemented at the local level and local needs and conditions shape implementation. This volume examines the ways in which language planning works as a local activity in a wide variety of contexts around the world and dealing with a wide range of language planning issues: corpus planning, language in education planning prestige planning, and status planning.
