Hey, you! The Germans! Using Literary Pragmatics to Teach Language as Culture
Warner, Chantelle
Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, v42 n2 p162-168 Fall 2009
In this paper the author outlines a sample lesson that has been developed for second- or third-year German students using the short satirical vignette "Hurra, ich lebe in Deutschland" from the Turkish-German author Sinasi Dikmen's book of the same name. The lesson draws heavily from literary pragmatics, an area of applied linguistics which studies the relationships between literary language use and its users, and which can promote the awareness of language as culture needed in the more advanced levels of language study.
