At this initial step into the 21st century, language planning and use remain
unexpectedly fluid and subject to change. This is demonstrated in China where
the official policy of Modern Standard Chinese (Putonghua) firms up in the
Canton Delta and Hong Kong, albeit not without local resistance and
indifference. Meanwhile in Indonesia, the world's 4th most populous country,
the strong government-oriented endorsement of Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) in
the archipelago of almost one thousand inhabited islands persists in the face
of strong regional languages and dialects. 

This Special Issue of the JAPC focusses on the current impact of language
planning and language use in Asian Pacific communities. The JAPC invites
scholars representing polities of Asian Pacific nations to describe the
language policy of a particular multilingual locality along with the
significant outcomes in such areas as:
- the rise of diglossic communities without bilingualism 
- the rise of bilingual communities without diglossia
- language planning as component of national unity
- the strengthening of ethnolinguistic identity
- altering language attitudes and motivation
- language as carrier of culture
- language as a force for discrimination 
- globalization's impact on language planning and use
- social media's impact on language planning and use
- practical administrative support for language planning
- the role of education in language planning 
- language planning as key for job and career opportunities

Contributors to this Special Issue will be asked to comment on and evaluate
official language policy and actual language use, including major empirical
findings related to a locality. All interested in contributing a study to this
Special Issue should send a brief abstract stating the theme, methodology, and
goal of the paper by October 2018.
