9781330197509: Linguistic Oppression in the German Empire (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Linguistic Oppression in the German Empire

For the last hundred years a dominant conception among the Germans has been that of "the folk" (das Volk). The folk - they have thought and said - is a being and almost a person; and as such it has its corresponding attributes - its sense of right; its way of speech; its songs, its poetry and its music. Law, according to a great German jurist, is the organ of folk-right; folk-music, folk-songs, folk-poetry - all these are the natural outpourings of the Volksgeist; while as for the folk-speech, that is not only the medium for the expression, but also the condition of the existence, of these other things.

The philosophy of Hegel represents in many ways the apotheosis of this German idea of the folk.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Linguistic Oppression in the German Empire Much may be said, both for and against this. Cult of linguistic purity. A language which te fuses to borrow from other languages loses that ?exibility, subtlety of expression and variety of shades of meaning, which an abundance of loan words enables a language that borrows such words freely to attain; but, on the other hand, linguistic purity conduces to a political result, as indeed it is largely based on a political motive - a conscious and vivid sense of national unity and national uniqueness.
