Description:

German is an official language in seven nations, and spoken as a minority language in many other regions. This volume explores the diverse national, regional, and societal influences that shape the contemporary German language, and discusses current issues related to variational and social linguistics as well as language policy. Additional chapters examine German as a foreign/second language and the cultural dimensions of language and language contact.
