Aims, contents and method of the course

The lecture focuses on the linguistic diversity and dynamics of languages in Austria from the perspecitve of the language system, sociolinguistics, contact linguistics as well as language attitudes.

The lecture features examples from current research such as the FWF Special Research Programme (SFB) "German in Austria. Variation – Contact – Perception" at the University of Vienna.
