Entfesselte Sprache?

Ein Beitrag zur Sprecherkritik

In this paper, various forms and concepts of ›unleashed language‹ (entfesselte Sprache) are discussed, particularly in connection with the phenomenon of ›hate speech‹. Against a linguistic-interdisciplinary background, the author argues for the social relevance of language criticism and of criticism of speaker‹s integrity, too. Thereby, the author develops her argumentation by introducing and explain- ing the concepts of ›language culture‹ (descriptive) and ›language cultivation‹ (nor- mative).
