Mitteilungen des Deutschschweizerischen Sprachvereins
The Deutschschweizerische Sprachverein, founded in 1904, is now known as the Schweizerischer Verein für die deutsche Sprache (SVDS). In its early years, it was mainly concerned with the relationship between the national languages. For example, it was in favour of the fact that the railway stations in the German-speaking parts of the bilingual cantons of Freiburg and Valais were no longer written in French, but in German. It published "Mitteilungen" (usually on a monthly basis), as well as its "Jährliche Rundschau" and books.
Since the 1940s the association has been the contact for the Duden editorial board for all questions concerning Swiss German. The declared objectives of the SVDS are to protect the German language in Switzerland in both the standard form and dialect, and to contribute to linguistic peace in the country.
The Schweizerische Verein für die deutsche Sprache has published the "Sprachspiegel" since 1945. It is aimed at readers who enjoy the German language and who want to continue to work on improving their language skills. The "Sprachspiegel" is a scientific publication in the best sense of the term "popular science", and is oriented towards practicing the language.
