Aims and Scope
The Handbook of Language in History examines the role ascribed to speaking and writing in the German language over the course of language history. It reveals the historicity of language in the transmission of language awareness and the range of linguistic usage. A general section is followed by an analysis of different domains of knowledge (the quotidian, institutional, religious, scientific, and poetic worlds).
