Web portal Kiezdeutsch

funded by BMBF (Federal Ministry for Education and Research) and DGfS (German Society for Linguistics)

This web portal makes linguistic results on “Kiezdeutsch” (a variant of German used in informal peer group conversations by young people in multiethnic neighbourhoods) accessible for the general public. It offers scientific arguments for the public discussion, provides linguistic data that illustrates the grammatical and lexical productivity of this variety, and offers, on this basis, assistance for classroom projects on the grammatical analysis of Kiezdeutsch.
