Title: Englischer Sprachkontakt in den Varietäten des Deutschen / English in Contact with Varieties of German
Edited By: Falco Pfalzgraf

Series Title: Österreichisches Deutsch - Sprache der Gegenwart Vol. 12
Description:

Dieser Band enthält eine Auswahl von zehn Aufsätzen, welche auf Vorträgen
basieren, die in der Sektion Language & Linguistics des Centre for
Anglo-German Cultural Relations (CAGCR) am Queen Mary College der
University of London seit Herbst 2006 gehalten wurden. Behandelt wird
zunächst die Frage nach der Stellung der Sprachwissenschaft in den
britischen German Studies. Sodann wird nicht nur der englischsprachige
Einfluss auf das deutsche, österreichische und schweizer Deutsch abgedeckt,
sondern auch jener des Deutschen auf das Englische. Weitere Beiträge
beschäftigen sich hinsichtlich Anglizismen mit deren Integration, mit
Problemen ihrer Genusbildung, mit ihrem Vorkommen im Luxemburgischen, mit
ihrer Rolle in einer multiethnischen Jugendsprache, sowie mit möglichen
Zusammenhängen zwischen Sprachpurismus und Globalisierung.

This volume contains a selection of ten papers based on lectures which have
been given in the Language & Linguistics section of the Centre for
Anglo-German Cultural Relations (CAGCR) at Queen Mary, University of
London, since autumn 2006. The first paper discusses the position of
Linguistics in British German Studies; subsequent papers discuss not only
the influence of English on Swiss German, Austrian German, and German in
Germany, but also the German influence on English. Other papers deal with
the integration of anglicisms in the German language, problems of the
grammatical gender of anglicisms, their position in Luxembourgish, their
role in a multi-ethnic youth variety, and the connections between
linguistic purism and globalization.
