This is a specially commissioned collection focusing on Luxembourg and its national language, Lëtzebuergesch. The contributors look at patterns of linguistic communication involving French, German, and English as well as Lëtzebuergesch in a nation which is both at the heart of the European Union and a very private and close-knit small-scale community. The book contains the first extended description of Lëtzebuergesch in English.

Newton has done us a great service in producing a collection of ten original state-of-the-art papers in English by himself and three other leading scholars in the field...the volume will be of great interest to anyone interested in trilingualism, polyglossia, language planning, language and identity, or lesser-used languages...Newton must be congratulated on presenting us, in 250 pages, an excellent account of this complex language situation...informative, stimulating, and extremely readable...The whole volume is lucid and coherent. * Language in Society * The book is comprpehensive, well-ordered, and written in clear intelligible diction throughout. It is to be hoped that it will contribute to a better understanding of Luxemburgers and their language throughout the English-speaking world. * Manfred Gorlach, University of Cologne, Linguistics 35 (1997) *
