The introduction of the present dissertation states the fact that the colloquial language of Halle was not documented and analysed for almost 50 years. The last researches derive from the 1960s by H. Schönfeld. As it is generally known, a language is subjected to strong changes, and so is the colloquial language of Halle too. On these accounts deals the present dissertation project with the segmental and suprasegmental examination of the regional colloquial language of Halle. This study is concerned with a corpus of 27 audio records (interviews) (recorded from 2001 to 2002). On the basis of detailed analyses it was proved, that the regional language of Halle (Saale) has a special phonetic character trait. The focus of the analysis of the colloquial language of Halle was on the following: sound features (consonants, vowels, diphthongs) typical local interjections and particles ( and ) phonetic words (clitics) Altogether there were analysed 6883 sounds (vowels, diphthongs, consonants), as well as 822 interjections and 246 phonetic words. This study was made by a computer based auditory analysis. The results were verified by 4 or 5 listeners and eventually discussed in different listener groups. The dissertation subdivides into a theoretical part (chapters 2 to 5) and into an empirical part (chapters 6 to 8). The theoretical part deals with the term of "urban colloquial language", its geographical distribution and the placement of the regional dialect area and the status of current research. Chapter 5 reflects the current research literature of the sound features, the interjections and particles and phonetic words of the colloquial language of Halle. Chapters 6 and 7 deal with basic analysis, with hypotheses and results. Chapter 8 contains a concluding discussion of all results as well as an outlook on further research topics.
