(p.95) Chapter 6 Linguistic Creativity in Corsican Tourist Context
Multilingualism and the Periphery

This chapter takes up the complex interrelationship between minority language practices, the construction of place/space and processes of minority language identification. The specific focus is on how linguistic boundaries and statuses are negotiated through Corsican along with other languages in the commercial and tourist spheres in the context of changing economic practices and circulating discourses about plurilingual, European and global markets and forms of citizenship. Using examples of commercial and public texts and images from the linguistic landscape viewed by tourists, as well as some brief examples of tourist interaction, the chapter identifies both continuity and change in language ideological positionings. It further introduces the notion of ‘imagined interaction’ to describe the discursive worlds proposed by tourist texts and image.

Keywords:   Corsica, tourism, minority language, language ideology, plurilingual, linguistic landscape
