Emyr Lewis considers what he refers to as ‘the right to chat’, arguing that the simple right of speakers of minority languages to talk to whomever they want to is not protected in law as it should be. The right is frequently limited by different kinds of restrictions. He then considers the treatment of this issue in domestic and international law and analyses Part 6 of the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011. He concludes that although Part 6 is in some respects inadequate, it does have features which could be adopted more generally, and is therefore a signpost towards an explicitly recognised right to chat which could benefit speakers of all languages.
