Abstract:

Is the world en route to becoming a linguistic colony of the United
States? Or is this dramatic view an exaggeration, and there is no
danger to linguistic diversity at all? The German language is at the
center of an intensive debate on this issue. Its position in the world
is under increasing pressure due to the growing importance of
(American) English as the language of globalization.

The articles in this volume deal with the national and international
position of German in relation to English, language policies, the
future of German as a language of science, German in the USA, and the
intellectual and aesthetic dimensions of encountering a foreign
language. They present critical assessments addressing the dangers for
the future of languages other than English, as well as positions which
perceive the growing importance of English as a challenge and resource
rather than as a threat.
