Abstract(s)
This paper starts with a short debate on the role of the research method of "linguistic landscapes", which is part of the ethnographic paradigm. It presents multilingualism, or rather metrolingualism in the market place; a space where languages meet and intermingle and multilingual repertoires collaborate to make linguistic actions possible. The socio-demographic element of linguistic landscapes is also shown in the existence of China Town in Vienna. Multilingualism "from below" is contrasted to the official language policies of the country.
