Abstract

In Europe, the languages are like water: mobiles and actives, shapeless and elastics, indispensables but without power. Even if they are subject of discussions between different forces, they are not governing the relations between States. So, one can ask himself the following question: our world of globalization is it going through linguistic unification or, on the contrary, fragmentation, or coagulation? In the more specific case of Europe, we can say that the languages are the bearers of dominated peoples. In what follows, we will dress the destiny of Europe of languages and the relationship between languages and power.
