The Evolution of Modern Standard German
Credit Hours:

The goal of this course is the study of the sociohistorical processes and linguistic developments in German, concerning the establishment of the modern standard language. As such, we will study language shift and language change from both a diachronic and synchronic perspective. The standard language will therefore be presented as the result of cultural and linguistic developments, and of political and economic unification. Taught in German.
