T1 Nazi-Deutsch/Nazi-German : an English lexicon of the language of the Third Reich A1 Michael, Robert,, Doerr, Karin,, PB Greenwood Press PP Westport, Conn. YR 2002 SN 031332106X 9780313321061 AB "Created and used as an instrument of coercion and indoctrination, the Nazi language, Nazi-Deutsch, revea1s how the Nazis ruled Germany and German-occupied Europe, fought World War II, and committed mass murder and genocide, employing language to encode and euphemize these actions. Written by two scholars specializing in socio-linguistic and historical issues of the Nazi period, this book provides a unique, extensive, meticulously researched dictionary of the language of the Third Reich." "Clear, concise, expert definitions are supported with background information. Using up-to-date research, the book provides single-volume access to a specialized, charged vocabulary, including the terminology of Nazi ideology, propaganda slogans, military terms, ranks and offices, abbreviations and acronyms, euphemisms and code names, Germanized words, slang, chauvinistic and anti-Semitic vocabulary, and racist and sexist slurs. It is an important reference work for English- and German-speaking scholars, students, and teachers of the interwar years, the Nazi era, World War II, and the Holocaust."--Jacket.
