Standard German is spoken by approximately 95 million people worldwide.
This book provides an introduction to the linguistic structure of standard
German that is rich in descriptive detail and grounded in modern linguistic
theory. It describes the main linguistic features: the sounds, structure
and formation of words, structure of sentences, and meaning of words and
sentences. It surveys the history of the language, the major dialects,
German in Austria and Switzerland, as well as sociolinguistic issues such
as style, language and gender, youth language, and English influence on
German. Prior knowledge of German is not required, as glosses and
translations of the German examples are provided. Each chapter includes
exercises designed to give the reader practical experience in analyzing the
language. It is an essential learning tool for undergraduate and graduate
students in German and linguistics.
