Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


In this project the historical background of the official language standardization in Denmark will be outlined in order to understand the Danish standard language. I aim to investigate the problems between the official language and deviations from it. Furthermore what influence this has on the language use and users in Denmark. In particular I investigate the occurrence of the “incorrect” form “bekræftigelse” of the “correct” form “bekræftelse” through a conducted questionnaire. The discussion is based on arguments for and against strong language standardization by Danish linguists such as Erik Hansen, Frans Gregersen, Tore Kristiansen, and Jørn Lund amongst others. I find, that the problems between the standardization of the Danish language and the occurrence of deviations from it, has big consequences for the language users.
