Abstract:

The native speaker is one of the central but at the same time most
controversial concepts of modern linguistics. With regard to English, it
became especially controversial with the rise of the so-called "New
Englishes," where reality is much more complex than the neat distinction into
native and non-native speakers would make us believe. This volume reconstructs
the coming-into-being of the English native speaker in the second half of the
nineteenth century in order to probe into the origins of the problems
surrounding the concept today. A corpus of texts which includes not only the
classics of the nineteenth-century linguistic literature but also numerous
lesser-known articles from periodical journals of the time is investigated by
means of historical discourse analysis in order to retrace the production and
reproduction of this particularly important linguistic ideology.
