The text analyses the quite common practice of judging the quality of prestigious and
non-prestigious languages and dialects. Historical examples from English, Norwegian
and Swedish are discussed, to show how this type of opinion tends to highlight
certain traditional stereotypes. The linguistic features quoted in these judgments are
often descriptions of human traits.
