This article discusses the structure and state of the German language spoken today by the descendants of German immigrants to Russia in the 18th century. The (socio-) linguistic argumentation permits the following conclusion: The language based on German (Russlanddeutsch) may be a variety of the German language (russisches Deutsch) or a variety of the Russian language (deutsches Russisch), but it is the speakers in Russia who have the last word on this question. How they regard the language depends on their sense of identity, whether they feel Russian or German. Thus, future research into the linguistic situation of this group will best be served by an interdisciplinary approach and the a co-operation of linguists, psychologists, and historians.
