Language, Justice, and the Deliberative Democratic Way
The aim of this chapter is to explore an alternative to language rights. This chapter argues that language needs to be consistently viewed as a set of constructions that serves as a semiotic resource, and that this view of language has to be situated within a model of justice that encourages a reflexive stance toward language practices, if we are make any progress in addressing linguistic discrimination. The chapter also suggests that there are features of the political model known as deliberative democracy that appear to be promising in accommodating a reflexive view of language as a semiotic resource.
