    Language rules? Languages, standards and linguistic inequality: multilingualism and variation in education, law and citizenship

    Language Rules brings together practitioners – teachers, examiners, dictionary-makers, speech therapists, legislators, translators, lobbyists, policy-makers, and others – with academics to examine how assumptions and beliefs about correct, acceptable or standard languages impact on everyday life in a multilingual world, including how to tackle potential inequalities.
