The Linguistic Landscape (LL) as the language of public road signs, advertising billboards, street names, place names, commercial shop signs etc. (see Landry, R., Bourhis, R. Y. 1997),2 plays a crucial role for minority comunities in their efforts to obtain and/or to mantain political acknowledgment by local-level politics. On the one hand, the linguistic landscape refl ects the relative power and status of the different languages in a specifi c sociolinguistic context. In this sense LL is the product of a specifi c situation and can thus be considered as an additional source of information about the sociolinguistic context along with censuses, surveys or interviews.
