In this volume different aspects of how the language functions in society are treated. Two essays concentrate on the issue of script and alphabet, another three on the issue of mother tongue education and language maintenance, two of the authors describe the general situation and status of the Baloch in peripheral areas (in these cases Turkmenistan and East Africa), and the final article deals with the issue of patriotism expressed in poetry.
