Summary: How does a country find itself ?at war' over spelling? This book focuses on the linguistic history of a nation at the crossroads of Europe. Bermel explores the way various factors ' including linguistic theory, cultural authority, political ideology in the communist and post-communist era, and a long tradition of language intervention ' contributed in the late twentieth century to the formation of two diametrically o...pposing mindsets about Czech spelling and orthographic reform in general. The shifting power bases and strategies of the various players in the early 1990s receive a full treatment, as does the conscious and unconscious manipulation of metaphors about language and language planning in these struggles. Key features:There are other monographs on spelling reform, but this is the first book to focus on this specific topic. Draws on author's extensive research.Suited for coursesin language planning and reform, cultural studies, and history, especially that of transitional and post-communist states. Now available as an affordable paperback.
