Illustrated by examples from cities worldwide, Diarmait Mac Giolla Chriost proposes a conceptual framework for understanding language-city relationships through critical reference to relational perspectives on trio city and an ecological view of language. He counters a 'simplistic biodiversity equals linguistic diversity' formulation in identifying cities as significant sites of linguistic diversity and innovation, as well as the sites of language change, language shift and language death. In the field of language planning and policy, this book addresses the functions of the city in the interests of sustainable linguistic diversity."--Jacket." ;
