Abstract [en]

Since the onset of its emancipation from its philological origins in the early nineteenth century, linguistics has been affected by a disciplinal self-conception that is resulting in the perception of language becoming increasingly detached from its culturality. In a continuing process of disentanglement, socio-historical, cultural and media scenarios of linguistic and communicative processes have been pushed to the periphery of linguistic studies, whereas they have been increasingly becoming the focus of study in neighboring disciplines in cultural studies. In addition to describing possible reasons for this development, the paper also aims to point out that, contrary to the prevailing anti-culturalistic movement, such as, e. g., Chomsky's "cognitive revolution", the origin of linguistic knowledge is fundamentally interwoven with its cultural processing. The paper calls for a need to reflect upon the "structural gap" which has resulted from the extensive lack of linguistics being represented in recent cultural-scientific debates in the humanities and social sciences.
