The purpose of this paper is to explore the importance of the social construction of language in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Using the Welsh language as a case study, along with ethos and Bourdieu’s linguistic capital as frameworks, the paper highlights key socially constructed concepts and ideas that should be considered in the application and relevance of the 17 SDGs.
