"Mehr Netflix als Schulenglisch" Sprachliche Ressourcen junger Deutschchilenen

Research output: Journal contributionsJournal articlesResearchpeer-review


The present article looks into language biographies of young German-Chilean speakers between 16 and 25 years of age, with a special interest in the role of those languages other than German and Spanish. By combining approaches of language island studies with those of "sociolinguistics of mobile resources" as established by Blommaert (2010), linguistic profiles of young speakers of a minority language are being acquired, going beyond the dichotomy of immigration language vs. surrounding language. This shows how young German-Chileans are in a globalized world just as much as other young speakers. On this level, different language contact situations can be made comparable.
