Language planning in practice in the Norwegian higher education sector
This chapter builds on Linn’s chapter on ideologies in language planning in Norway, but concentrates on the interplay between ideology and practice. Using published statistics, reports and policy documents, as well as qualitative interview data, the chapter considers the practices of status planning, corpus planning and acquisition planning in the academic sector in Norway. These three forms of language planning are viewed as taking place simultaneously on multiple levels, including the micro-level, while also recognising that many everyday practices create de facto language policy as an accidental part of normal activity. Documented practices shed light on the areas where language policy, internationalisation policy and everyday practice succeed or currently fail to integrate with one another.
