Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Linguistic discrimination is discrimination based on native language, usually in the language policy especially in education of a state that has one or several linguistic minorities. Critics denounce linguistic discrimination as a violation of linguistic rights. Discrimination against minority language is an aspect of linguistic imperialism. While linguistic discrimination was common in Europe during the formation of nation states in the 19th century, it was countered by opposing trends of linguistic protectionism and language revival in the 20th century.show more
