Title: Sustaining Language Diversity in Europe
Subtitle: Evidence from the Euromosaic Project
Written By: Glyn Williams
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Minority Languages and Communities

Adopting a post-structuralist approach in analyzing the Euromosaic data
about European minority language groups, Glyn Williams argues that
different states construct minority language groups and speakers in
different ways. This leads to an argument about the nature of democracy and
how the current changes in governmental discourses accommodate linguistic
and cultural diversity.
