Sorry to butt in, but you might find this interesting: Visible Language, vol.
XXI, number 1, Winter 1987: "Bi-Graphic Differences: Languages in
Con(tact)(flict)". Includes an article by Alistair Crawford, "Bilingual
Typography" arguing that "on the basis of the questions raised by the
typography of Welsh -- a minority language with no typographic history -- that
if we are to regard typography as a subject and a discipline, as distinct from
a form of applied decoration or self-expression, we need to begin to consider
typography as essentially language-based." (p. 43)
