Abstract

Little is known about the conditions that led to German-Swiss diglossia. Based on public discourse about Swiss German, the study shows that with respect to the history of language awareness, today’s typical bilingualism in Swiss German and standard German became consolidated in the 19th century in close relation to societal processes. The study is a major contribution to the linguistic history of German-speaking Switzerland.

Abstract

Why is it that some ways of using English are considered "good" and others are considered "bad"? Why are certain forms of language termed elegant, eloquent or refined, whereas others are deemed uneducated, coarse, or inappropriate? Making Sense of "Bad English" is an accessible introduction to attitudes and ideologies towards the use of English in different settings around the world. Outlining how perceptions about what constitutes "good" and "bad" English have been shaped, this book shows how these principles are based on social factors rather than linguistic issues and highlights some of the real-life consequences of these perceptions.
