Die Herausforderung durch die fremde Sprache : der Fall des Französischen

The Challenge of foreign language : a French case study

  • This study emphasizes the significance of language politics for a process of nation building and national self-identity as exemplified by France and Frenchspeaking Africa. Based on linguistic differences (between foreign languages and foreign language, one's own language and ones native language etc.) the foreign is identified in the field of language politics and is required in order to identify the domestic language as such. The privileging of national languages subsequently goes along with the marginalization and exclusion of other languages. That which can be considered foreign includes, on the one hand, a language used by an elite (Latin) or colonial power (the French in Afrika) and, on the other hand, foreign can be that which is excluded from the dominant language practices.
