Abstract: “Money is tight”. This is an argument one is bound to be confronted with when trying to discuss the future of the linguistic mosaic of the seemingly ever-growing European Union. The number of languages spoken on the territory of the EU is, of course, sizeable. There are at present twenty- one languages (including Irish) with the status of official state languages, to which a considerable number of regional and minority languages (an estimated dozen to two dozens – varying according to what is considered a distinct variety) have to be added to complete the picture of European linguistic diversity.
