In this order of things, each nation wishing to be recognized in the international arena must possess its own unique national language. When a nation is lucky enough to have gained its own nation-state, not only is the national language to become the new polity's sole official language, what is more, it cannot be shared in that function with any other state across the globe. During the Twentieth century, this specifically Central European deification of language justified the destruction of entire states deemed as 'non-national', vast unprecedented border changes, and instances of ethnic cleansing involving tens of millions. The violent parallel break-ups of Yugoslavia and Serbo-Croatia bear witness to the continuing destructive potential of language politicization."@en ;
