Die Rolle (laien)linguistischer Mythen bei der Reproduktion (sozio-)linguistischer Normen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter argues that some widespread and deeply rooted beliefs about languages(s) are better described as ‘myths’ and reflect ideological positions rather than any objective linguistic facts. Amongst the terms which are subjected to an ideological critique are ‘mother tongue’, ‘language mixing’, and ‘authenticity’.
