ATrA 7. Language and Identity Theories and experiences in lexicography and linguistic policies in a global world


This book was conceived during the closing event of the DiM project, developed within the framework of the Erasmus plus KA204 - Strategic Partnerships for Adult Education programme.
Its fourteen chapters intend to offer food for thought on some of the currently most debated questions for linguists in the global village, and are divided into three thematic sections: 1) multilingualism, minority languages and the eternal dichotomy between orality and writing; 2) lexicography and L2 teaching; 3) the role of linguistics in particularly complex multilingual contexts. The book was published thanks to a grant obtained in 2018 by Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia.
