Title: Standardvariation
Subtitle: Wie viel Variation vertrÃĪgt die deutsche Sprache?
Edited By: Ludwig M. Eichinger
Werner Kallmeyer
Series Title: IDS Jahrbuch 2004

The papers in this volume focus on the following questions: what does the
term 'standard language' comprise, how has Standard German developed since
the 19th century, how can linguistics adequately describe its present
state, and what long term developmental tendencies can be identified in it?
The answers to these questions also reflect the necessity for normativity
and its boundaries.
