Making use of examples from around the world, the book considers the rise of linguistic nationalism, and the ways in which the assumption of a strong language-identity link has led to attempts to fortify and protect languages. Considerable attention is also given to the real-life mechanics of language maintenance and shift, and the psychological evidence bearing on language attitudes and behaviour.
