The distinction between standard language and convergence


Author(s): Dr. Azima Majeed

Abstract:
Convergence is a linguistic issue that is closely tied to numerous other concerns, including nationalism, literary history, sociology, psychology, etc. The concept of convergence has existed throughout the history of all nations; so, it is not a new occurrence. However, at some point in the history of the world, particularly in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this phenomenon has become more apparent. Standard language is a type of writing or speech that is used by highly educated people in the society, and it is accepted as the dominant language model in the society. In the media, the press (audio and video), lectures and school texts, as well as in formal dialogues and interviews, criteria are utilized. Due of the high social prestige of the standard species, other social groupings attempt to emulate and conform to it.
