Afrikaner*innen im Rhein-Main-Gebiet: Ein afrikalinguistisches Forschungsprojekt zu sprachlicher Integration is the first project in which two universities out of the RMU alliance collaborated and one of the few projects in humanities funded by the “RMU- Initiativfonds Forschung”. It is a multidisciplinary project with a mixture of anthropological and sociolinguistic methods. Namely it combines qualitative interviews, participant observation and language portraits. Within fieldwork here in the Rhine-Main region the panel of the four Africa linguists Klaudia Dombrowsky-Hahn, Axel Fleisch, Sabine Littig and Nico Nassenstein surveys language use and acquisition of German and other languages of people of African descent living in the region. The researcher concentrates on how one person speaks when, to whom, and in which situation. One aim of the project is to improve the German language courses and integrational courses with the help of the collected data.
