Material type: TextTextPublisher: Frankfurt am Main [etc.] : Peter Lang, 2015Description: 235 str. : ilustr. ; 22 cm.ISBN: 9783631662564.Subject(s): opća lingvistika | hrvatski jezik | Hrvatsko društvo za primijenjenu lingvistiku konferencija 27th International Conference of the Croatian Applied Linguistics Society (CALS) | norm, standard, varieties, attitudes, Croatian, Slovene eng In: Summary: Overall, the common theme of the volume are the more or less overt attitudes towards the construction of the relationship between norms, standards and varieties as evident from the Croatian and Slovenian daily life. All of the papers point to the hybrid and stratified nature of language in its various guises, and the fact that our attitudes, practices and policies need to come to terms with this hybridity. A variety of discussions are offered, but they all seem to point to a somewhat inconsistent attitude towards language stratification. On the one hand, as language users, we are aware of the variety of languages and language varieties that we use and need, and on the other, coming to terms with this variety presents a problem. The problem is a result of our presumed (inner) need for a non-hybrid, rule-governed and (at least ostensibly) coherent system (cf. e.g. Kalogjera 2014 for a review of such attitudes towards the standard) as well as a result of a practical need for a common system (a lingua franca in the broadest of terms, a teaching standard, or a translation standard). This is further complicated by the policy of multilingualism, which is based on celebrating diversity.

Overall, the common theme of the volume are the more or less overt attitudes towards the construction of the relationship between norms, standards and varieties as evident from the Croatian and Slovenian daily life.
