Linguistic Rights

Linguistic Rights is argued that the general assimilation or equation between language rights and human rights is not only erroneous as far as it is inaccurate, but it leads to a distorted image of the relationship between law and politics. It includes, among others, the right to one’s own language in legal, administrative and judicial acts, language education, and media in a language understood and freely chosen by those concerned. Linguistic Rights became more and more prominent throughout the course of history as language came to be increasingly seen as a part of nationhood.
