Einstellungen zu Anglizismen und ihre wissenschaftliche Rezeption
Series:Linguistik – Impulse & Tendenzen 11
Aims and Scope
This study is the first to examine in detail the public and academic discussions (“metalinguistic discourses”) from 1990 to 2001 on the subject of anglicisms in German. The central question is one of why attempts by linguists to participate in the public discourse and move this towards a more objective debate largely failed. On the basis of numerous statements in the media and from professional linguists, the study demonstrates the reasons for the divergent assessments of the phenomenon in academic and public circles.
