Language as a subject


This publication presents a well-observed study of the various approaches of Corsican language activism, subsumed under the three main streams of resistance of separation; resistance of reversal; and radical resistance. The significance of language politics is related to the problematic nature of the island’s integration into the French state, yet this link is not closely examined.
