Summary

This paper specifically focuses on the balance between local dialect and the language standard through the examination of generational markers reflecting upheaval and social transformation, as presented from a case study from Denmark, conducted over 8 years in three field trips. Generation is redefined as experiencing specific socio-historical events at similar life-stages, there by gaining insight into the correlation of generational markers and dialect change. It is further demonstrated that the vacillation between standardization and local dialect innovations is directly correlated to the effect of socio-historical events on a generation of the residents, who not only defined the dialect, but also transformed the internal social constructs of the community. As the younger residents become more active in the social networks, their life experiences and attitudes become reflected in the evolving dialect. Evidence was found for attitude changes focused on a contrastive means for self-identification and on a local versus regional identity. Innovative forms and long-standing isoglosses were found to have faded as the single industry economy waned due to European Union quotas and resulting social changes. Linguistic changes found suggest initial rapid development and more recent standardization of the dialect that emerged some 80 years ago. (Contains 24 references.) (Author/NAV)
