Abstract.

The article is devoted to the activities undertaken by the Council for German spelling to adapt the officially published Rules of German Spelling to the standards of the written communication in the German-speaking community. The subject of the research is the changes in the official rules of German spelling presented during the IIIth speech of the Council for German spelling in 2016. Without downplaying the importance of the German spelling reform as one of the most major language reforms of the latest century, the author of the article analyzes minuses of the reform, in particular, the fact that the reform did not fully fulfill its purpose to simplify the rules and reduce exceptions but made writing in German even more difficult. In her research Khakimova uses general research methods such as analysis, generalisation and systematisation of academic information and facts (legislative acts, researches, and mass media). Despite a great number of researches devoted to the German spelling reform, there haven't been many articles on the latest changes in the German spelling rules lately. The novelty of this research is caused by the fact that the author analyses these changes in particular. The practical importance of the research is caused by the fact that the author reviews the latest edition of German spelling rules which is undoubtedly an interesting issue for both teachers and wide audience participating in the written communication in German and being interested in German culture. The author concludes that by analysing the experience in spelling reforming of the German community we may develop sociocultural technologies of managing the language policy under the conditions of language reforms that can be used in all languages and communities. 

Keywords: experience in spelling reforming, variable spelling of words, writing with uppercase letter, fused writing, letter-sound matching, case of the German language, development of written communications, adaptation of spelling rules, Council for German spelling, German spelling reform
