THE LANGUAGE OF THE THIRD REICH
LTI: Lingua Tertii Imperii

Victor Klemperer

'Brilliantly conceived analysis that sought to crystallize the meaning
of Nazism from its official language'Gordon A. Craig, Stanford
University'...the most profound and entertaining study ever written in
English of the impact of political tyranny on language. This book is a
necessary and fascinating read' Mark Mazower, New Statesman'It
deserves to be read by anyone interested in this period of history. A
classic in the literature on National Socialism.' Michael Burleigh,
TLS'valuable...compelling...classic.'Hans Reiss, Emeritus Professor of
German, University of Bristol in THESUnder the Third Reich, the
official language of Nazism came to be used as a political tool. The
existing social culture was manipulated and subverted as the German
people had their ethical values and their thoughts about politics,
history and daily life recast in a new language. This notebook,
translated by Martin Brady and originally called LTI (Lingua Tertii
Imperii) - the abbreviation itself a parody of Nazified language - was
written out of Klemperer's conviction that the language of the Third
Reich helped to create its culture. As Klemperer writes: 'it isn't
only Nazi actions that have to vanish, but also the Nazi cast of mind,
the typical Nazi way of thinking, and its breeding ground: the
language of Nazism.'This brilliant, entertaining, profound and
ultimately saddening and horrifying book, is one of the great
Twentieth-Century studies of language and of its engagement with
history.
