Change and extinction of language - what happens to the German language?
This bachelor thesis deals with the central question of what happens to our language. It attempts to explain the processes of language change more accurately and to emphasize them through application examples. It aims to show how the German language has changed over time. Which words disappear gradually and which words are no longer known at all. What impact have technical developments, as well as different cultures to our means of communication? The result of this work shows a detail of the change of language in recent years. Constantly new words are added and older who no longer serve their purpose, disappear. It should be noted that through the historical change and upcoming generations the language will continue to vary. Which new words arise and which words disappear remains to be seen.
