Luxembourgish Standardization: Context, Ideology and Comparability with the Case of West Frisian (Babesch Supplementa)

Luxembourgish Standardization: Context, Ideology and Comparability with the Case of West Frisian (Babesch Supplementa)Depicted As The Youngest Germanic Language , Luxembourgish Has Needed To Undergo Some Measure Of Standardization In Order To Warrant Its Recently Acquired Status And National Prestige Owing To Its High Degree Of Kinship With German, The Issue Of Distantiation From That Language Has Been Pervading That Process Of Standardization The Linguistic Independence Of Luxembourgish From German Has Been Cultivated By Different Means, As In Particular The Overemphasis On Its Romance Heritage, Or The Valorisation Of Its Archaic Forms In Order To Lend A Democratic Dimension To The Cultivation Of That Linguistic Distinctness, The Imagery Of A Luxembourgish Folk Standard , Natural And Regionally Inclusive, Has Provided The Other Main Source Of Justification For The Puristic Choises Made Throughout The Process Of Feature Selection This Book Attempts To Shed Light On The Modalities Of Interaction Between The Ideology Of Linguistic Distantiation And Luxembourg S Language Reality Beside, The Modalities Of That Interaction Are Placed Within The Wider Perspective Offered By The Case Of Standard West Frisian, A Linguistic Entity Likewise Largely Defined By Contrast With A Genetically Related Neighbour And H Language, I.e Dutch From A Comparison Between The Practices Of Language Codification Observable In Luxembourg And West Friesland And Their Ideological Justification, An Ideal Model Of Further Standardization For Luxembourgish Is Tentatively Sketched Against The Background Of The Current Language Planning Activities Of The Luxembourgish Norm Agencies. So basically this was someone s master s thesis And to be honest, reading someone s master s thesis is generally kind of annoying For example, although the book was in English, none of the quotes were translated and that s kind of problematic since quotes were in German, French, Luxembourgish, Dutch and Frisian I mean, I doubt there are many people who can read all of those languages, and it s really hard basically impossible to follow all of his arguments without being able to read the quotes On the other hand, I think I finally cracked Luxembourg s language situation, which was something I ve been struggling to figure out for years Here you have a tiny landlocked country roughly the size of Rhode Island with a third of the population of Philadelphia and everybody who grows up there is trilingual because they wouldn t be able to function in their own so
