Abstract: This paper has provided evidence that language planners, language educators, and language policy makers must possess a particular human character capable of nuanced understanding, deep critical analysis and a sensitive ability to respond appropriately to numerous factors and contending elements. Will their decisions lead language speakers to their socioeconomic development, or will their policies lead these speakers towards socioeconomic regression? This paper suggests clarifying these outcomes through three lenses: language ghettos, language rights and language injustice.
