Summary/Abstract: This article focuses on the connection between language biographical research and the question of performed literary authorship based on the example of the lyricist, journalist,painter and dance instructor Erika Blumgrund (1924–2016). The first part of the text offers a short linguistic biography of the author primarily based on interviews with her. In addition,it illustrates how Blumgrund’s language biography influenced her performed authorship in three different contexts: Blumgrund as a multi-lingual author, as a German-Jewish author in Argentina and as a Slovak-Jewish Holocaust survivor.
