Who has the right to say what language will be taught in schools, or what kind of language will be published in the press and spoken in the media in a world where language constantly change? The articles in this collection refer to several languages areas in Europe, from North (Scandinavia) to South (Spain/Balkan) and East (Ukraine/Russia) as well as the Center (Germany/Austria) and include one contribution on Canada. They present different cases of language competence and its assessment (E. Lehtinen, A. Koskensalo, H.-M. Järvinen, N. Valtaranta) , languages in contact in different settings ( H. F. Marten, C. W.Pfaff, R. de Cillia, S. Mönnesland, Á. Huguet et al.), and contributions on language change (P. Kaikkonen, F. N. Laín, L. Forsman, R. Pyykkö, S. Lindberg) which are related to applied linguistics both from a sociolinguistic and an educational linguistic point of view.
