The article discusses the reasons for the revival of Welsh, including efforts by the Welsh Language Board and the Welsh Assembly Government, Welsh-medium schools being considered as elite and the positive view of being Welsh in popular culture. The article discusses the prevalence of bilingualism and the legislative self-determination in Wales. The article also addresses the theme of reports within the issue, including the use of English and Welsh by students in north Wales, the discourse of social inclusiveness in language policy and anti-colonial discourse by pressure groups.
