Defining the position of ‘community’ in the study of linguistic landscapes.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This special issue explores how multilingual (and semiotic) landscapes relate to constructions of community. With the present introduction we aim to embed theoretical notions of ‘community’ into the study of Linguistic Landscapes (LL). We first discuss how the notion of ‘community’ has been applied in previous LL research, and then introduce some relevant theoretical notions of ‘community’, which, in the final part, we seek to position in relation to an agenda for the study of LL.
