The chapter brings together the main findings from each of the chapters and revisit the introduction and key questions to draw out the volume’s overall contributions. The chapter reflects on some of the possibilities afforded by examining multilingualism and the periphery and also some of the challenges presented, while at the same time highlighting possible future research directions. The chapter argues that the centre-periphery lens points to a fruitful, and challenging, way forward for our understanding of multilingualism as a dynamic/static, flexible/fixed phenomenon in minority language spaces and beyond.

Keywords:   centre-periphery dynamics, indigenous and minority languages, multidisciplinarity, language as system, language as practice
