Aspekte einer übergreifenden Theorie
Is it possible to change the language in a group? And if so, how? In politics and business, conclusive answers to these questions are of great interest. Karolina Suchowolec finds them by analysing the current state of research on language planning, planned languages, controlled languages and terminology work, examining the findings for their possible generalisation and deriving from this language guidance as an overarching linguistic object of research. She has empirically investigated its practical implementation. As a result, she formulates an overview of the challenges of language control as well as the solution approaches postulated in the relevant literature - a solid basis for further theoretical research and support for practical language control. Karolina Suchowolec, *1984, studied Applied Linguistics and German as a Foreign Language in Dresden and earned her doctorate in Linguistics in Hildesheim. As a research assistant at the Institute for German Language in Mannheim, she is involved in terminological and applied linguistic projects. Her research interests include specialist communication, terminology management, controlled languages and knowledge modelling.
