 Languages may not be the first issue one thinks of when Brexit is mentioned, and it is true that language policies have not officially been discussed yet, however, it is certain that languages will be affected in different ways once the UK leaves the EU. Based on an expert symposium held at Cardiff University in March 2017 on ‘Brexit, English, and the Language Policy of the European Union’, this small book written by Diarmait Mac Giolla Chríost and Matteo Bonotti lists and discusses each potential consequence of Brexit on language policies in the UK and in the EU.
