Resumen del Libro
This volume assembles articles by some 50 authors from three continents. The subjects discussed are very varied but they all fit under the heading Languages and Societies in Contact . Most of them illuminate some aspect of laménagement linguistique (language management), a term coined, defined and illustrated by Jean-Claude Corbeil. The articles are arranged under seven major headings: language policy, terminology, language industries, lexicology, lexicography and international language organisation, linguistic change and varieties, language management and the social sciences, French and national languages. This extremely wide-ranging collection also points up various socio-linguistic constellations and language management in a number of very different regions.
