Whilst earlier studies of language planning and of standardisation have tended to study macro processes such as top-down language revitalisation campaigns or language polices at government level, this volume is in line with more recent work aimed at bridging the macro and the micro levels by examining how the two interact and influence each other. The aim of the volume as a whole is to contribute to a better understanding of the motivations underlying language users' decisions to adopt or resist language norms and policies of various kinds in their daily life. The individual chapters cover seven countries - the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Luxembourg and Switzerland - and deal with different sociolinguistic constellations, ranging from communities dealing with variation within one language to those looking for ways to manage a multilingual repertoire.
