Abstract:

The "one-nation-one-language" assumption is as unrealistic as the well-known
Chomskyan ideal of a homogeneous speech community. Linguistic pluricentricity
is a common and widespread phenomenon; it can be understood as either
differing national standards or differing local norms. The nine studies
collected in this volume explore the sociocultural, conceptual and structural
dimensions of variation and change within pluricentric languages, with
specific emphasis on the relationship between national varieties. They include
research undertaken in both the Cognitive Linguistic and socolinguistic
tradition, with particular emphasis upon the emerging framework of Cognitive
Sociolinguistics. Six languages, all more or less pluricentric, are analyzed:
four Germanic languages (English, German, Dutch and Swedish) and two Romance
languages (Portuguese and French). The volume describes patterns of phonetic,
lexical and morphosyntactic variation, and perception and attitudes in
relation to these pluricentric languages. It makes use of advanced empirical
methods able to account for the complex interplay between conceptual and
social aspects of pluricentric variation and other forms of language-internal
variation.
