Changing socio-political landscapes, the dynamics of qglocalizationq, among other factors, are spawning new policy attitudes towards multilingualism, and putting language planning on the map. With respect to terminology, this book suggests that to be relevant and sustainable, language planning would have to define its mission as the deregulation of access to specialized knowledge, and correspondingly be founded on substantially different methods and theoretical bases: epistemology and ontology of specialized domains; research on language for special purposes (LSP) and collocations; corpus linguistics; and language engineering technologies.One effect of the offkialisation of Amharic in 1955 was its introduction, in 1964, as medium of instruction in primary schools. ... the amharicisation process to higher tiers of the educational spectrum did not mean a halt of terminological activities.
