Reviews

“This book provides a very interesting account of a large survey research done in the coastal region of the Mediterranean Sea. The book is comprised of an introduction followed by seven other chapters through each of which the LL of one region in the Mediterranean Sea is reported and analyzed from a particular theoretical framework. … this book is highly recommended to researchers and students in the field of LL, language policy, language and identity, multilingualism and minority languages/dialects.” (Saeed Rezaei, Sociolinguistic Studies, Vol. 10 (3), 2016)
