Abstract:

This volume presents a comparative, socio-historical study of the
Germanic standard languages (Afrikaans, Danish, Dutch, English,
Faroese, Frisian, German, Icelandic, Low German, Luxemburgish,
Norwegian, Scots, Swedish, Yiddish as well as the Caribbean and
Pacific Creole languages). Each of the 16 orginal chapters
systematically discusses central aspects of the standardization
process, including dialect selection, codification, elaboration and
diffusion of the standard norm across the speech community, as well as
incipient processes of de-standardization and re-standardization. The
strongly comparative orientation of the contributions allow for the
identification of broad similarities as well as intriguing differences
across a wide range of historically and socially diverse language
histories. Two chapters by the editors provide an overview of the
theoretical background and rationale of comparative standardization
research, and outline directions for further research in the area. The
volume will be of interest to language historians as well as
sociolinguists in general.
