This paper deals with the usage of the personal pronoun ich in German scientific texts. As far as the speaker deixis is concerned, the present linguistic research on German scientific writing is predominated by the assumption of the so-called “Ich-Verbot” or “Ich-Tabu”. I will critically discuss this position and make a plea for a different point of view regarding both functional-linguistic and social-semantic aspects. Afterwards the results of a corpus-based investigation are presented, in which the frequency of ich-tokens is examined and the different usages are classified by introducing the terms “Verfasser-Ich”, “Forscher-Ich” and “Erzähler-Ich”.
