Welcome to the Chair of German Linguistics

At the Chair of German Linguistics, our research and teaching focuses on a variety of topics related to the German language, which we study from a range of perspectives. We have a particularly strong interest in the following areas:

Structure and use of the German language

Variation and change in the German language

The German language as it is used in advertising in collaboration with Åbo Akademi University (Turku), Finland’s Swedish-language university

German as a member of the Germanic language family

Language contact between German and other languages
