Migration in modern world affects ghettoization. Also Germany is struggling with this problem,
especially in urban areas. Immigrant neighborhoods are becoming districts which are often
described as ghettos. And only do they have their own rules, but also own language – a kind of sociolect.

in works of Feridun Zaimoglu (based on his novels Kanak Spark and Koppstoff).
