Falco Pfalzgraf

The Language and Linguistics Section of the CAGCR facilitates lectures, seminars and workshops concerning the contacts between the English and German language in the widest sense.

This includes for instance:

  • the influence of the English language on the German language and vice versa
  • the influence of the English language on other varieties of German
  • Matters related to the field of linguistic purism
  • Languge, politics, and national identity

The Language and Linguistics Section also houses the London / UK branch of the Gesellschaft für deutsche Sprache [GfdS].
