Europe is characterised by a multiplicity of languages and the consciousness of linguistic diversity permeates its societies. We will examine the complexities of language in Europe by examining issues such as multilingualism and diglossia, official vs minority languages, EU language policy, and questions of language and identity. Drawing upon case studies from European contexts, we explore key issues of language usage, such as different interactional styles, aspects of linguistic interaction, and the broader workings of power and politics in language.
