ABSTRACT

The article discusses the influence of macro-social processes and issues of assimilation, acculturation, ethnic and linguistic revitalization on the example of one particular group of German woodsmen in the social context of Western Slovakia. It attempts to analyse how historical and political changes during the 20th century influenced changes in the structure, system of values and hierarchy of ethnic group and whether that helped or prevented the assimilation of the group’s members. The article also attempts to indicate the possibilities of today’s ethnic and linguistic revitalization.

ABSTRACT

The study is an attempt to present the background and the first results of the current research, documentation of the language of German woodcutters known as Huncokars. We introduce the characteristic Huncokars’ dialect. Based on the record comparison of Huncokars’ dialect with dialects in Tyrol, Styria and Bavaria we have identified possible area from which Huncokars came to Slovakia. Huncokars have developed a languagespecific enclosed settlement, which lives either through several individual memories of their descendants or as a part of the collective memory of today's local communities living near the former settlements.

Abstract

The process of industrialization and urban growth and the development of cities in the first three decades of the 20th century are inevitably related to rapid social changes. The new attitude to life, which corresponds to this process, affected the aesthetic perception and the work of artists as well. The study shows the sensitiveness of German expressionism to the dynamics, drive and chaos of the new city life. The expressionistic picture of the city is clearly ambivalent; it oscillates between fascination on the one hand and antipathy on the other. Expressionism also reflects the social alienation and the feeling of being lonely in a crowd as new phenomena of the 20th century.
