Theory and practice in language management
This paper addresses the distinction between theory and practice networks and the ways in which theory can be made more useful for language management practitioners. With regard to the dissemination of knowledge of language management theories, one should not forget that many of these theories contain components that are a direct reflection of their authors’ interests. Therefore, rather than teaching practitioners a set of concepts of a language management theory, it is more rewarding to acquaint them with the basic strategies that govern more than one of these theories. Six examples of such strategies are proposed.
Keywords: practice networks, theory networks, interests, language management, theories of language management
