I just came across this item in a search - but didn't notice that it had
been mentioned on this list. Apologies if it's an unnecessary duplication
(below is the LinguistList announcement, which came up in a search of my
email archives, and the TOC from the loc.gov site; unfortunately it hasn't
been processed yet in the LOC, however, so I'll have to find it elsewhere):

measures must account for, Part III (Language variation and change in
institutional contexts) examines language-related problems in education,

diversity and language change) relates public discourses on language and
