Fieldwork on Rama (Nicaragua) and Francoprovençal (France) has revealed ever-present and ever-changing ideological forces at work. This chapter examines how ideologies in the two different locations are essentially built in opposition to others, how they are projected onto specific types of actions, and how they are explicitly articulated by some people and then adopted and absorbed largely implicitly by others. The authors also discuss why a certain ideology is evident at a certain time, and try to trace what might be at stake for whom: communities, governments, and institutions, as well as academic linguists.
