This volume commemorates the 20th anniversary of Michael Clyne's seminal volume "Pluricentric languages. Differing norms in different countries" published in 1992. The main focus of this volume is the exploration of linguistic standards in non-dominant varieties and the discovery of the ways in which different language communities of non-dominant varieties reconcile their wish to express their national, social and personal identity via language with their desire to adhere to a common language. Another central focus is the way in which the norms of languages, and in particular those of non-dominant varieties of pluricentric languages, can be standardized or how given standards can be changed. The papers show that the state of standardization in pluricentric languages may differ strongly from language to language and also differ between varieties of the same language.
El libro conmemora el vigesimo aniversario del influyente volumen publicado por Michael Clyne en 1992, "Pluricentric languages. Differing norms in different countries". El objetivo principal consiste en "explorar estandares linguisticos en variedades no dominantes" e indagar como las diferentes comunidades linguisticas reconcilian la pretension de expresar su propia identidad nacional, social y personal a traves del lenguaje con su mismo deseo de adherencia a una lengua comun. Otra cuestion central atiende a la manera en que las normas linguisticas y, en particular, las normas de las variedades linguisticas de lenguas pluricentricas pueden convertirse en estandares o como los estandares establecidos pueden ser modificados. Los diversos articulos muestran que la situacion y el grado de estandarizacion en las diversas lenguas pluricentricas pueden diferir en gran manera entre las distintas lenguas y entre variedades diferentes de una misma lengua.
