Abstract or Introduction
African languages and language varieties are amongst the fastest growing languages in the U.S. from 2016 on. This paper aims to show why and how this sudden development is happening, and what changes and chances it bears for the development of U.S. American communities and society as a whole. To do so, the paper will first look at the languages that are most commonly spoken in the USA, followed by a brief introduction into African languages and language varieties before taking a closer look at how recent migration impacts the language demographics of the United States and the country’s culture.
