Dear colleagues,

Those of you who understand German or who know about the issue might find this 75-min book launch event of interest (this book, now in 3rd edition: https://www.newacademicpress.at/gesamtverzeichnis/4292/oesterreichisches-deutsch-oder-deutsch-in-oesterreich/). A link to the recorded event can be found here (5 min. Intro (Dr Knill), 15 min sound samples and presentation (Dollinger), c 45 min questions from the international audience, c. 10 comments):

Following the laudable and indispensable tradition of the open discussion of ideas, a discussion site has been created for those wishing to contribute to the ongoing debate: https://www.academia.edu/s/d4189b969b?source=link (the discussion closes in 20 days).

For those not reading or understanding German, the argument has been made in English here (now in paperback): https://www.routledge.com/The-Pluricentricity-Debate-On-Austrian-German-and-other-Germanic-Standard/Dollinger/p/book/9780367728847

Kindly,
