The relationship between economic organisation, space and time is not unrelated to person and how the subject is constructed within the different discourses that integrate language and economy. The central motivating force for the production and reproduction of minority language groups is the relevance of the minority language for social mobility – language prestige. Once a language is incorporated into the activities of the labour market, it becomes an object which has a particular signification for the individual within a society which is constituted through the relationship of individuals to the economic order. It involves how democracy constructs the individual as a free agent in the quest for the good life.
