Exploring the dynamics of multilingualism : the DYLAN project by Georges Lüdi( )

16 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«This book addresses the meanings and implications of multilingualism and its uses in a context of rapid changes, in Europe and around the world. All types of organisations, including the political institutions of the European Union, universities and private-sector companies must rise to the many challenges posed by operating in a multilingual environment. This requires them, in particular, to make the best use of speakers' very diverse linguistic repertoires. The contributions in this volume, which stem from the DYLAN research project financed by the European Commission as part of its Sixth Framework Programme, examine at close range how these repertoires develop, how they change and how actors adapt skilfully the use of their repertoires to different objectives and conditions. These different strategies are also examined in terms of their capacity to ensure efficient and fair communication in a multilingual Europe. Careful observation of actors' multilingual practices reveals finely tuned communicational strategies drawing on a wide range of different languages, including national languages, minority languages and lingue franche. Understanding these practices, their meaning and their implications, helps to show in what way and under what conditions they are not merely a response to a problem, but an asset for political institutions, universities and business.»--Page 4 de la couverture
The politics of multilingualism : Europeanisation, globalisation and linguistic governance( )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book proposes a multidisciplinary assessment of the impact of complex diversity on language politics and policies, analysing how the legacies of the old interact with the challenges of the new. Its main focus is on the interplay of multilingualism on the one hand, and the dynamics of transnationalism, globalisation, and Europeanisation on the other. This interplay confronts contemporary societies with unprecedented questions, as they face the need to come to grips with increasingly varied and pervasive manifestations of linguistic and cultural diversity. This volume offers an integrative approach that identifies the key social and political dimensions at hand, offering an innovative contribution to the ongoing conversation on the manifestations and management of multilingualism

S'entendre entre langues voisines : vers l'intercompréhension( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'intercompréhension entre langues voisines, c'est la capacité des locuteurs à comprendre, en s'appuyant sur les ressemblances avec leur propre langue maternelle, les personnes qui parlent ou écrivent une langue apparentée. Depuis l'aube du langage, l'intercompréhension est une réalité quotidienne et une stratégie de communication pour des millions de gens. Pourtant, son potentiel reste encore largement inexploité. Ce livre propose un panorama d'ensemble de ces différents enjeux. Il aborde la portée sociale, politique et économique de l'intercompréhension, notamment dans les contextes de la francophonie et de l'Europe. Il traite ensuite des questions, souvent fondamentales, que l'intercompréhension soulève du point de vue des sciences du langage, avant d'examiner comment on peut enseigner l'intercompréhension et l'intégrer dans les programmes éducatifs

Le multilinguisme et le multiculturalisme se retrouvent constamment au premier plan de l'actualité helvétique. Ces thèmes sont politiquement chargés et touchent à de vastes questions de société telles que l'enseignement des langues nationales et l'intégration des migrants. Cet ouvrage, issu du projet "Suisse - Société multiculturelle", documente cette réalité de façon large et approfondie. Il repose sur l'enquête la plus complète jamais réalisé à ce jour sur les compétences linguistiques et (inter-)culturelles des jeunes Suisses et sur leurs attitudes envers la diversité linguistique et culturelle. L'analyse, qui exploite plus de 40'000 questionnaires, intègre des dimensions sociolinguistiques, culturelles, pédagogiques et politiques, et propose des perspectives nouvelles sur les défis de la gestion de la diversité dans la Suisse du 21ème siècle.
