Linguistic rights are the human and civil rights concerning the individual and collective right to choose the language or languages for communication in a private or public atmosphere. Other parameters for analyzing linguistic rights include the degree of territoriality, amount of positivity, orientation in terms of assimilation or maintenance, and overtness.
Linguistic rights include, among others, the right to one's own language in legal, administrative and judicial acts, language education, and media in a language understood and freely chosen by those concerned.
Language Rights as an Integral Part of Human Rights
The rights of minorities are often thought of as constituting a distinct category of rights, different from traditional human rights. Such a view fails to recognise that the use of descriptive expressions such as “minority rights” or “language rights” may be useful, but also imprecise.
