Autorenporträt
ANNE JUDGE is Professor Emeritus of French and Linguistics at the University of Surrey, UK. She has lectured and published extensively on language and linguistic legislation, originally in relation to France, French within the EU, and the Francophone world, but more recently on linguistic legislation in Britain, finding their similarities and differences both fascinating and enlightening. She is co-author of a history of French style, Stylistic Developments in Literary and Non-Literary French Prose (1995), and is perhaps best known as co-author of A Reference Grammar of Modern French, first published in 1983.

Rezensionen
'...it will certainly appear on reading lists for my final-year students.' - Robert Blackwood, University of Liverpool, writing in Language Policy

'The story is well told, interesting to read and up-to-date. This is a good straightforward account of the situation for each country and RL and to be recommended.' - Dennis Ager, French Studies

'... Judge's work is a valuable addition to the Palgrave Studies in Minority Languages and Communities. It should be welcomed as a text for courses in European studies or language planning, and will no doubt be gratefully consulted by many specialist students of French and readers of JFLS.' - Gertrud Aub-Buscher, Journal of French Language Studies
