ABSTRACT
Purpose. The aim of the study is to determine the range and relevance of functioning of the regional languages in the financial and economic sphere. The object of the study are the languages of the countries that have ratified the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages and the Tatar language as one of the regional languages of the Russian Federation. Methodology. In the context of socio-economic issues the reports on the implementation of the commitments of more than 20 European countries have been analyzed. In respect of the Tatar language the relevant legal framework was analyzed, a sociolinguistic survey of experts for the use of Tatar in finance and economics was conducted and a content analysis of the websites of the relevant ministries and leading Tatarstan companies was implemented. Results. The findings suggest that Spain, the UK, Austria actively use regional languages. In other countries and the Republic of Tatarstan this sector is not being used to the full extent. The reasons of non-efficiency and measures to further improvement of the situation in the region have been determined. Practical implication. The data obtained as a result of the sociolinguistic research have been introduced into scientific use for the first time and appeal to scientists in the field of language situations, specialists engaged in language policy and lectures-sociologists.
