Communities, Networks and Contemporary Language Revitalisation

Huw Lewis, Wilson McLeod

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This essay highlights different understandings of community—the traditional territorial understanding and the newer networked one—and considers how language use can best be understood in the context of social lives that are increasingly stretched across diverse physical and virtual spaces. It concludes with a series of reflections regarding the practical implications of these changing understandings for initiatives aimed at promoting greater social use of RMLs.
