This positing relates to the discussion of the theory of pluricentricity, which was first facilitated on this list last year. For a summary, see and relating postings.

The theoretical and epistemological account behind that discussion, "Dollinger, Stefan. 2019. The Pluricentricity Debate: On Austrian German and Other Germanic Standard Varieties. New York: Routledge" has now been reviewed in Zeitschrift für Rezensionen der Germanistischen Sprachwissenschaft. As that review leaves, in my opinion, the central questions unaddressed, a further exchange can be found here (log on required):

The response to the review may be viewed, without log-in and a chance to contribute, here:
