Specific topics include regional and immigrant minority languages in Europe, the United States, and Australia; economics and language policy; English as a global language and a form a linguistic imperialism; forensic linguistics; language and conflict studies; multilingualism on the Internet; attitudes to language and communication; linguistic diversity and language standardization; language and sexism; and borrowing as language conflict.
