It is assumed that globalisation in the modern world is limited to the economy, politics and culture. However, globalisation also relates to languages. Currently, several languages dominate international literature, narrowing the terminological functioning of national languages. The status of languages is defined in the global, regional, official, national or local context. It relates to the functioning of a language in the global, politico-territorial and local space. This, as well as other dimensions, will be discussed in this lecture.
