"Die Heimat heißt Babylon" : zum kreativen Umgang der tschechischen deutsch schreibenden Autoren mit der Sprache

"The home country is called Babylon" : on the creative way of how Czech authors writing in German handle language

  • The premise of this paper is that there is a special trait which authors writing in German – but having a different mother tongue – have in common: compared to authors whose mother tongue is German, they show a more distinct sensitivity for the peculiarities of language, a more intense preoccupation with language phenomena, and a habit of critically questioning linguistic conventions, i.e. overall they display a greater awareness of language. Using the examples of Libuše Moníková, Jiří Gruša and Michael Stavarič, the paper shows how their German texts become alienated through elements from their mother tongue and how these authors make use of their bilingualism in their creative way of handling the foreign language.
