Multilingual communication in Hamburg
A pragmatic approach
This paper addresses societal multilingualism from an interactional perspective. Evidenced by empirical data, the monolingual habitus of a city such as Hamburg turns out to crumble from the borderlines of interactive frames particularly in non-institutional settings. Thus, openness for different kinds of pragmatic insertions and borrowings as well as purpose-based language mixing will be strengthened.
Keywords: development of receptive and productive multilingualism, landscaping and soundscaping data, language mixing, pragmatics of multilingual communication, societal multilingualism
