Les langues minoritaires en Méditerranée occidentale : entre régression, affirmation et mondialisation

The western Mediterranean constitutes a traditional zone of meeting of several types of languages and of dialectal profusion. The system can be easily interpreted by means of a diglossic organization between dominated poles (minority languages) and dominant poles (vehicular languages, States languages), clearly recognizable. In an historic phase where the centralist economic pressures are very strong (globalization), it is interesting to question the whole system of these languages and linguistic landscapes, notably the romance landscapes. We can then begin to understand that are appearing particular modalities of management of these different sorts of languages corresponding to three models (France, Spain and Italy). Each of these models gives us an outline of what could become the western Mediterranean in a near future.
