The single-volume standard work on the history of the German language has now been revised. It provides an overview of the linguistic changes in German from its Indogermanic prehistory to the present. Since linguistic history, social history, and political history are closely connected, this textbook is intended for students studying all forms of language and literature, as well as historians, social scientists, and interested laypersons.
