Title:
Language regimentation as Soviet inheritance: joining scholarship and state ideology
Summary / Abstract:

ENIn this paper, I will show how language regimentation and an ideological linguistic framework, developed during the Soviet regime, became an integral part of official language correction practices in post-Soviet Lithuania. Alongside a descriptive account of the contemporary language legislation, my empirical focus will be on professional discourse, constructed by linguists and language planners, more specifically, on professional discursive representation of language regulation in the country, of scholarly authority and of the role of the linguist as a norm constructor. The data draws on a representative electronic corpus of Lithuanian texts on language standardization issues, including more than a thousand complete historical accounts, reports, reviews, documents, articles from public debates, language correction and ideological publications, that were published in language planning periodicals and internet sources (websites of language institutions and internet portals) in the period from 1960 to 2014.
