Abstract:

This book is about the struggle for social power in the inter-ethnic
context of the Austrian part of the 19th century Austro-Hungarian
Empire. It explores how the struggle for power is reflected in
attempts to control language use at different levels of discursive
interaction, and how, in a context of intricate and multiple language
contact, language became a prominent site for interethnic
controversies and conflict. The book shows how, in the wake of ongoing
democratization, in particular in 1848 - 1849 and after 1860, the
non-German speaking nationalities of the Empire attempted to redefine
their status by demanding recognition of their languages and cultures
while German-dominated state nationalism tried to reestablish its
endangered hegemony by granting linguistic and cultural autonomy to
the various ethnic groups.
