Abstract:   (4462 Views)
The current state of linguistic diversity in the world in the context of globalization is characterized by various political and legal regulations of linguistic relations. On the one hand, the process of giving global status to only those languages whose dominance in the world has developed historically and is conditioned by geopolitical processes continues. On the other hand, we can say with confidence about such a global trend as the preservation and development of minority languages. As a result of the research the author makes a well-founded conclusion that giving the status of state to a large number of languages in Russia does not guarantee political stability and national security. The growing influence and dominance of the world's major languages is inevitable. But, first, among them, the position of the Russian language should be restored, and secondly, the desire to create a single global language-a utopian and destructive phenomenon. A balance must be found between the unique palette of linguistic diversity on the planet and the undeniable presence of several well-known world languages. One of these harmonious and evolutionary ways is the development of bilingual education
