The article discusses the key stages that are said to have occurred during the reframing of minority language rights in Europe. It mentions that 2008 marked a milestone in the establishment of the rights of linguistic minorities in the region who include the regional minority and immigrant minority language speakers. The original scope of the right to minority language preservation catered to groups that hold historical relationships with a specific geographical region. It relates the expansion of the rights to groups such as Yiddish and Romani speakers.
