This book focuses on linguistic landscapes in present-day urban settings. In a wide-ranging collection of studies of major world cities, the authors investigate both the forces that shape linguistic landscape and the impact of the linguistic landscape on the wider social and cultural reality. Not only does the book offer a wealth of case studies and comparisons to complement existing publications on linguistic landscape, but the editors aim to investigate the nature of a field of study which is characterised by its interest in ‘ordered disorder’. The editors aspire to delve into linguistic landscape beyond its appearance as a jungle of jumbled and irregular items by focusing on the variations in linguistic landscape configurations and recognising that it is but one more field of the shaping of social reality under diverse, uncoordinated and possibly incongruent structuration principles.

This book presents a sociolinguistic ethnography of the linguistic landscape of Chinatown in Washington, DC. The book sheds a unique light on the impact of urban development on traditionally ethnic neighbourhoods and discusses the various historical, social and cultural factors that contribute to this area’s shifting linguistic landscape. Based on fieldwork, interviews with residents and visitors and analysis of community meetings and public policies, it provides an in-depth study of the production and consumption of linguistic landscape as a cultural text. Following a geosemiotic analysis of shop signs, it traces the multiple historical trajectories of discourse which shaped the bilingual landscape of the neighbourhood. Turning to the spatial contexts, it then compares and contrasts the situated meaning of the linguistic landscape for residents, community organisers and urban planners.

Essay from the year 2011 in the subject English - Grammar, Style, Working Technique, grade: 1,3, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald (Amerikanistik), course: Linguistic Landscape, language: English, abstract: Introduction In this term paper I want to present a case study done by Diane Dagenais, Canièle Moore, Cécile Sabatier, Patricia Lamarre and Françoise Armand from 2005 – 2008 in Montreal and Vancouver. In doing so, I will give a background of Montreal, followed by a description of their research method. I will also offer criticism. At the end I will summarize the findings. Montreal Montreal is the second largest city of Canada and the largest city of Quebec. It was founded in 1642 and called 'Ville-Marie', meaning 'City of Mary' (cf. Manzagol 2001: 15). According to Canada Statistics (2006 Census) the Montreal metropolitan area had a population of 3'588'520 and only 8.96 percent of it could not speak the official language of the city, namely French. Most of the immigrants who arrive in Quebec settle in Montreal (cf. Manzagol 2001: 24). “The immigrants form 45 % of the population of Montreal-City”1 (Manzagol 2001: 25). Statistics show that the number of immigrants (to Quebec) who can speak neither English nor French in the years from 1996 to 2000 has quintupled in the years from 2001 to 20062. Montreal is also a city of growing economy, especially in 'high tech' and pharmacy (cf. Manzagol 2001: 15-17). These facts, together with the good gross domestic product of Canada3, show that Montreal is an ever-growing, multicultural city.

Noam Chomsky, der weltbekannte Sprachtheoretiker und streitbare Gesellschaftskritiker wurde am 7. Dezember 1998 siebzig Jahre alt. Zu diesem Anlass hat der Philo Verlag einen Gratulationsband herausgebracht, der das Spannungsfeld von Chomskys Denken zwischen Sprache und Politik anhand seiner eigenen Arbeiten ausloten will. Der Band umfast exemplarische und bisher nicht übersetzte Arbeiten Chomskys von Ende der 60er Jahre bis heute (u.a. den berühmten Aufsatz "Some tasks for the left" von 1969). Damit wird die Vielfalt und der Antrieb seines Denkens auch all jenen zugänglich gemacht, die den Linguisten, aber nicht den politischen Philosophen, den libertären Sozialisten, aber nicht den scharfsinnigen Analytiker abendländischer Staatsmacht kennen. Der Autor: Noam Chomsky, geb. 1928; Professor für Linguistik und Philosophie am Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Begründer der generativen Transformationsgrammatik. Neben sprachwissenschaftlichen Problemen setzt sich Chomsky immer wieder kritisch mit aktuellen wirtschafts- und medienpolitischen Fragestellungen auseinander. 1998 erschien von Noam Chomsky bei Philo "Haben und Nichthaben"
