Sprachentwicklung – Sprachkultur – Sprachkritik: Erwägungen zum heutigen und künftigen Deutsch

  • Following an explanation of the problems to evaluate the general state of a language and to predict its future development, the main popular worries concerning the present German language are briefly presented and discussed. Three speculative scenarios of states of German at the end of the century are sketched and compared: A. The preservation of the main structural features and domains of the German language, B. The change of German into an Anglo-German creole, C. The exchange of German by an 'international' English with the exception of a few relics of old German dialects. Scenario A, the 'positive' one of the three possible developments, is argued for in more detail, and ways and means to support such a development of the German language within the context of the other European languages are suggested and discussed.
