Abstract

It is necessary to analyse and evaluate descriptions of dialect texts in Swiss German in the context of the general diglossia situation of Swiss German. In this diglossia situation writing is actually an activity which belongs to the sphere of standard-language usage; writing in dialect is derived from standard-language usage with reference to graphemics. Thus the graphemic system of the standard language is taken over and adapted for writing texts in dialect. However, this adaptation causes some problems and leaves plenty of scope for individual judgement. Defining fixed ways of writing is subject to several additional functional, socio-linguistic, historical and stylistic influences. It can thus be said that writing in dialect is not only a formal, but also a problem which requires a historical and pragmatic approach.
