Marie Krčmová (ed.)
The book is devoted to one particular aspect of a problem which is quite topical in these days: how the integration of today’s world manifests itself in various languages. Integration is a reflection of relations between cultures, often additionally backed up by economical relations and also influenced by historical and political factors. Tendencies to disintegration parallelly taking place can lead as far as to the constitution of new languages or to the revival of cultural languages.
