About the programme IVIP

Pluricentric languages are languages spoken in more than one country. In Europe alone there are many examples: English, French, German and Swedish. But do people interact the same way in different countries simply because they speak the same language? Or do the communicative patterns vary? We know very little about this, which is exactly what the programme Interaction and Variation in Pluricentric Languages investigates.
