From denial of a linguistic practice to recognition of a polynomial language: what impact on development?
Language, which seems to be the human activity least apt to be planned, does not escape external manipulation by the political powers that interfere in the management of the linguistic practices of the speakers. The various Algerian Constitutions are constant on this level: “Islam is the religion of the State” and “Arabic [is] its national and official language”. It is possible to find adequate solutions to crucial problems such as the choice and use of languages in education, taking as a starting point the languages used in society. Functional character is the principle of categorisation for development purposes. The economic benefits brought by the languages of wide communication can only be realised if we rely on the basis of initial multilingual training.
