Annika Hofmann, Erla Hallsteinsdóttir


In this paper, we will first present the current state of research regarding stereotypes and ideas of Germans and Danes about each other. This paper will then display research approaches of the SMiK-project. In the second half of the paper, the results of the questionnaire survey “Typically German – typically Danish” which reveal current German-Danish stereotypes will be presented. Last but not least, this paper includes a study of stereotypes that are used on German-Danish internet platforms and, thus, offer insights into chosen aspects of the linguistic analyses of the SMiK-project.
