Abstract

The International Association of Hyperpolyglots has come to embody a distinct and vibrant ethos within the wider sphere of linguistic praxis that might be described as ‘anarchist’ insofar as it exemplifies certain core aspects of anarchist philosophy (see Cahill 1989). This paper identifies the robust coherence between key elements of anarchist praxis, and their embodiment within HYPIA, to argue that HYPIA’s budding growth, and its distinction from other language organizations, is attributable to an anarchist ethos.

Keywords: language, anarchist, philosophy of language, multilingualism, polyglot, hyperpolyglot
