Authentische und zitierende Erfahrung – Dimensionen touristischer Sprachlichkeit
In this paper I attempt to demonstrate that what people know about places other than the one(s) they live in appears to be both stable and, quite frequently, not in accordance with what people know who live in these other places. Drawing on Ehlich and Rehbein’s typology of knowledge structures (1977), I attempt to show that knowledge about places is of a complex, self-sustaining structural type that immunizes against authentic experience. This is why texts about tourist destinations may be dysfunctional, if they are original. Surprisingly, this may especially apply to the demanding group of tourists who are after the authentic experience.
