Formatted Abstract/Summary
In this section of the Handbook, a framework for and overview of the important research issues for language policy and planning are presented. Following an introductory chapter that examines some general key issues and provides a possible framework for the types of activities that define the field, five chapters cover each of the archetypal activity types: status planning, corpus planning, language-in-education planning, prestige planning, and critical approaches to language planning, with particular emphasis on minority language rights. Within each of these areas, important recent research directions for language teaching and learning are discussed. The recent publication of two new journals in the field, Current Issues in Language Planning and Language Policy, the founding of a number of discipline-related journals, and the publication of books that take a critical perspective on language planning is indicative of the field's new-found sense of vitality.
