Viability and Resilience in the Dynamics of Language Competition

Abstract : The study of language dynamics has been addressed from at least three different perspectives: language evolution (or how the structure of language evolves), language cognition (or the way in which the human brain processes linguistic knowledge), and language competition (or the dynamics of language use in multilingual communities). The latter is the approach followed in this chapter in which, therefore, we focus on problems of social interactions. We aim to contribute to the study of the complex phenomenon of language survival (viability), thoroughly studied in linguistics, from the perspective of pattern resilience.
