Book Information


Title: Deutsche Grammatik - Regeln, Normen, Sprachgebrauch
Edited By: Marek Konopka
Bruno Strecker
Series Title: Jahrbuch des Instituts für Deutsche Sprache 2008

Concern for the German language will always attract large audiences.
Whoever claims that language is going to the dogs can be sure of the
approbation of those who see themselves as linguistically superior.
However, the status of grammatical rules is seldom questioned. It is in
fact by no means clear what can be seen as correct German. How is ‘German’
to be understood? Who determines what should be regarded as correct? The
44th Annual Conference of the Institut für Deutsche Sprache [German
Language Research Institute] endeavoured to help clarify questions such as
these, and took as its topic German grammar in the tension between rules,
standards and language usage.
