 This paper examines the following issues: 1) world’s linguistic diversity: statistical and sociolinguistic indicators from a historical and contemporary perspective; 2) the issue of writing in a philosophical and cultural context: writing as a means of recording human speech, religions and written languages, cultural memory and writing; 3) language societies and politics: political and religious doctrines, ‘colonial’ languages and writing systems, ‘old’ and ‘young’ standard languages, traditional and new writing systems; 4) dynamic relations between spoken languages and systems of writing in modern times: globalisation of communication and the properties of speech and writing, challenges facing education systems, language globalisation, ‘big’ and ‘small’ languages; 5) alphabet ‘conflicts’: political and sociolinguistic aspects of the ‘conflicts’ between the Latin and Cyrillic alphabets, the Latin and Arabic scripts, the Latin alphabet and the traditional writing systems in the East, internet communication and social networks; reflections on future developments.
