    Introduction: Defining language emancipation2011In: International Journal of the Sociology of Language, ISSN 0165-2516, E-ISSN 1613-3668, Vol. 2011, no 209, p. 1-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As we know, the interaction between humans is often characterized and regulated by some kind of power hierarchy or pecking order both at the individual and collective levels. Emancipatory politics means the changing of this hierarchical power structure, so that a new, democratic (or at least more democratic than before) structure emerges. According to Anthony Giddens, emancipatory policy is concerned with reducing or eliminating an illegitimate domination of some individuals or groups by others, so that justice, equality, and participation for all will become possible (Giddens 1991: 210-215).

    This introduction deals with emancipation in the context of language and linguistic rights. First, some definitions of language emancipation are given and discussed and examples of different kinds of emancipatory developments are described. In this introduction examples are taken primarily from the Nordic countries. Second, the importance of revalorization of a stigmatized language and culture and the impact of modernization on language emancipation are discussed. Third, some ethical issues are taken up. This introduction ends with a brief presentation of the rest of this thematic issue of the International Journal of the Sociology of Language. It comprises six case studies illustrating some of the “many faces of language emancipation”, and a coda which sums up and evaluates the case studies in the context of language emancipation at the end.

    Turkey's kurdish language policy2012In: International Journal of the Sociology of Language, ISSN 0165-2516, E-ISSN 1613-3668, no 217, p. 99-125Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the Turkish state's assimilationist policy towards the Kurds and the Kurdish language in Turkey. It studies how the Turkish nationalist elites, the Kemalists, have throughout the 20th century systematically suppressed the Kurdish language as part of their aim to construct a homogenous nation- state of Turkish speakers. It shows that this linguicidal policy was strongly informed by the traumatic collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the consequent Kemalist emphasis on complete ethno-linguistic homogeneity as criteria for being "Turkish", "Western" and "civilised". The article discusses the various " Turkification" strategies of the authorities, such as banning the Kurdish language, the denial of the existence of the Kurds, changing the names of towns and villages, the forced re-settlement of Kurds and the assimilation of Kurdish children. It critically analyses the recent developments in Turkey's Kurdish language policy and the reform efforts of the current government as part of the country's EU candidacy. The article reflects however, that whilst looking good on paper, these reforms have had little impact in reality and Kurdish speakers in Turkey are still systematically denied their basic human and linguistic rights.
