Abstract:

This study shows that women involved in National Socialism in the
years 1924-1934 developed and shaped a recognizable discourse which
communicated and reflected their position and status within the NS
movement.

The analysis is based on a variety of text-types produced by members
of NS women's organisations, and includes official correspondence,
circulars, reports, pamphlets, monographs and articles from NS women's
journals. It draws upon several areas of linguistic theory, including
feminist linguistics, semantics, pragmatics and discourse analysis,
and the salient features iden-tified in the female discourse are
placed within a sociolinguistic framework.

While previous research into the language of the NS-system has largely
ignored the possibility of a cohesive female discourse, the study
supports the idea that this discourse was dynamic, and at times
heterogeneous, whilst also displaying many self-defining and
self-referential features. It is characterized by its ambiguities and
apparent contra-dictions, which expresses separateness and difference,
yet also solidarity with the NSDAP.
