Task Cluster C: Contact

Task Cluster C is concerned with the contact of German in Austria with other languages, in particular with Slavic ones.

The project parts are situated within the frameworks of contact linguistics and research into multilingualism, which both concentrate on the crucial aspect of social context. Our first research step emphasises the historical dimension of language contact; the second step shifts the focus towards the situation of language contact in the present day.

On the one hand, we are analysing the context of language policies in several fields of action and tension in administration, law and especially in education. For this purpose, existing data from legislative texts, newspapers and other contemporary documents will be used. On the other hand, we are exploring the consequences of historical multilingualism in Austria and the resulting language contact. For example, we are analysing the contact of the ‘Viennese’ variety of German with Czech that took place around 1900. We are especially focusing on how language myths concerning Slavic languages and ‘Viennese’ are propagated in the context of dictionary projects.

While dealing primarily with historical data, we are searching for answers to the following questions: In what way has the 19th century discourse on how society and policies should deal with multilingualism and language contact phenomena influenced and shaped the understanding of multilingualism and language contact phenomena in the Second Austrian Republic? What are the consequences of this discourse for self-understanding and the perception of German-speakers in Austria? In addition, what is the role of the post-war political and scientific discourse about language(s)?

 

Task Cluster C: German and other Languages in Austria – Perspecitves of Language Contact consists of the following project parts: 

PP05: German in the context of the other languages in the Habsburg State (19th century) and 2nd Austrian Republic
PP06: German and the Slavic languages in Austria: Aspects of language contact

For more information concerning the individual project parts, please click on the links above.

Collaboratively, the two project parts of Task Cluster C develop the Information system on (historical) multilingualism in Austria, short MiÖ, which will be a thematic part of the SFB’s Collaborative online research platform. It will not only provide for the publication of the data gathered in the project parts, but also aims at becoming a point of reference for the broader public with regard to questions on primarily historical multilingualism in Austria. Thus, it will make historical multilingualism visible and raise further research questions. For closer information on the overarching goal, the framework and the modules to be developed during project phase I, please refer to the following pages:
