Obviously, there are different kinds of language minorities. This paper does not treat historical, territorial ones, but rather the unrecognized minorities formed by groups speaking minoritized languages of immigration in Western Europe and in particular in Switzerland. After a short presentation of the demolinguistic situation in Switzerland, we will talk about power relations between dominant and dominated languages, about empowerment and, at the end, about the possibility of finding plurilingual solutions to the world’s communication problems.
