A macro-history of language promotion by Europe’s colonial powers, and of Spain’s regional language nationalism, is developed to answer this question. This thesis poses and answers the following questions: What challenges do they face in gaining greater use on the Internet? Internet initiatives by the Basques, Catalans, and Galicians are surveyed and compared for the first time. Have the proponents of the major Spanish minority languages (Catalan, Galician and Basque) followed the historical approaches of the ‘majority language’ champions in promoting their languages and cultures globally? In 2005, a minority language achieved an historic world record: the first allocation of an Internet top level domain name (TLD) to a specific language: Catalan. This precedent has inspired many minority language communities, keen to raise the prestige of their languages and thus avoid language decline. What are minority languages? Are there any reliable estimates of the use of human languages on the Internet? And the special support role of Spain’s regional diasporas is identified. A new taxonomy is created to resolve confusion on the state of Internet language use.
