Outline of the Project

  • Wolfgang Klein
  • Norbert Dittmar
Part of the Springer Series in Language and Communication book series (SSLAN, volume 1)


In this chapter, the design and implementation of the project will be briefly described and motivated. In Sect. 6.1, the potentially relevant factors in LAS (language acquisition in social context) by foreign workers will be discussed. The scope of the project did not allow for a study of all of them, but it seems useful to have some idea of what may be involved. In Sect. 6.2, we shall describe how the data were collected and how they were prepared for further analysis. In Sect. 6.3, some examples drawn from these data are presented and briefly commented on, to give an impression of the kind of language material on which the analysis is based.
