Baden-Württemberg: Is the dialect dying out? Nationwide elementary school students surveyed

Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - Boys and girls in Baden-Württemberg hardly speak dialect anymore. "Your language everyday lies between dialect and standard language," says the Tübingen office "Language in Southwest Germany". Across the country, primary school students in the 1st and 2nd grades and their teachers were interviewed for a study. The results are to be presented on Monday (11.00) in Tübingen. The study was part of the state's dialect initiative, which Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann (Greens) launched four years ago.

The results of the survey will be presented by Hubert Klausmann from the Ludwig Uhland Institute for Empirical Cultural Studies in Tübingen. He has been researching dialects in southern Germany for over 30 years.

According to the language experts, there are two major dialects in Baden-Württemberg: Franconian in the northern third and Alemannic in the southern two thirds. They are divided into subgroups, which in turn are divided into many regional dialect forms.
