This inquiry examines the visibility of Cyprus' two official languages, viz. Greek and Turkish, and also English in the multilingual public space near Nicosia’s border. The results display that customary discourses of partition and conflict prevail in the public space yet concurrently novel discourses of unification, quiet and integration gently start to rise.
