"Gastarbeiterdeutsch" and Its Significance for German Teaching
Littlewood, William T.
Audio-Visual Language Journal, 14, 3, 155-158, Win 76-77
"Gastarbeiterdeutsch" includes varieties of German spoken by the many foreign workers employed in low-paid, less desirable jobs in Germany. It is characterized by reduction and simplification of syntactic and semantic forms. Study of this dialect reveals patterns of natural language acquisition necessary for communication, useful in classroom German instruction. (CHK)
