We have brought this perspective to bear not only on the tensions that arise from complex and changing multilingual processes, practices and experiences in Sami, Corsican, Irish, and Welsh language contexts, but also on the creative acts and activities that are an important part of dealing with these tensions in the four research sites"--"@en ;
