Summary/Abstract: The book contains a Foreword and 12 chapters based on studies published between 2009 and 2016. Their common denominator is the question of language problems from various aspects, the most important being the linguistic, the language ideological, the interventional and the general problem-managing aspect.The chapters are organized into four main topics. The first has the title Language Management and is an introduction into the world of language problems. It provides theoretical foundations for the question of language problems and language ideologies utilizing the Theory of Language Management. The second topic is entitled Types of Language Problems and is devoted to the language problems themselves. The main aim of their categorization is to enable the separation of the specific features of individual language problems from the features common to a whole group of language problems. This should enable both to get to know these problems better and to find the best ways of managing them. The third topic has the title The Ways of Managing Language Problems. It analyses the ways of dealing with various types of language problems including problems of proper names and problems concerning language standardization. The fourth topic is entitled Language Problems of the Hungarian Speech Community in Slovakia. It gives an overview of the most important language problems daily faced by the Hungarian minority community in Slovakia.
