"This volume is mainly a collection of syntheses of previous research
in different areas, and as such it does succeed at providing the
reader with an overview of how German and Austrian scholars of
sociolinguistics, pragmatics, and discourse analysis analyze the
'German language in the real world'." --American Journal of German
Linguistics and Literatures

"This volume gives an excellent overview of the German language
today. ... I recommend this book to all those with an interest in the
German language of the 1990s in the context of social and political
changes taking place in the German-speaking countries."--Notes on
