Linguistic emancipation and the linguistic market place
Keywords:Linguistic emancipation, linguistic market place, Pierre Bourdieu, North Sámi, Samnorsk
AbstractThe main objective of this article is to discuss conditions under which linguistic emancipation can occur, e.g. conditions that must be present for a given underprivileged language to move upwards on an imagined hierarchical scale of languages. The arena in which the status and power relations of languages and language varieties are determined is, with reference to Pierre Bourdieu, called the linguistic market place.
