  • Politische Kommunikation in Deutschlandby Ulrich Sarcinelli

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2009; US$ 29.95

    kratischer Institutionen zu Gunsten direkter Ansprache des Medienpublikums. Die institutionell vermittelte Legitimation scheint an Gewicht zu verlieren, w- rend die Medien und das Mediale in den Vordergrund treten. Diesen Eindruck vermittelt zumindest das medienöffentliche Erscheinungsbild von Politik. Kein Zweifel also, dass die Legitimationsempfindlichkeit... more...

  • Medienpolitik für Europaby Christina Holtz-Bacha

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2007; US$ 39.99

    Ein Buch über europäische Politik, und sei es auch nur über ein spezifisches Feld wie Medienpolitik, zu schreiben, ist wie der Lauf des Hamsters im Laufrad: Es lässt sich kein Ende finden. Das hat mindestens zwei Gründe: Zum einen gibt es fortwährend und in kurzer Abfolge neue Entwicklungen. Aktivitäten auf der europäischen Ebene rufen Reaktionen in... more...

  • Politik in der Mediendemokratieby Frank Marcinkowski; Barbara Pfetsch

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2009; US$ 69.99

    Die Rolle der Massenmedien im politischen Prozess demokratischer Staaten ist seit einigen Jahren einem grundlegenden Wandel unterworfen. Presse, Hörfunk und Fernsehen wurden lange Zeit als weitgehend passive Vermittlungsinstanzen wahr genommen, die den Publizitätsinteressen demokratischer Politik in einer primär ?dienenden? Funktion gegenüber treten.... more...

  • Transcribing Talk and Interactionby Christopher Joseph Jenks

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2011; US$ 143.00

    Interest in transcript-based research has grown significantly in recent years. Alongside this growth has been an increase in awareness of the empirical utility of naturalistic research on language use in interaction. However, a quick scan of the literature reveals that very few transcription books have been published in the past three decades. This... more...

  • Historical Dialogue Analysisby Andreas H. Jucker; Gerd Fritz; Franz Lebsanft

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1999; US$ 195.00

    Historical dialogue analysis is a new branch of historical pragmatics. The papers of this interdisciplinary volume contribute to charting the developing field by presenting a survey of recent research from the different traditions of English, German and Romance language studies. Both the introductory paper by the editors and the individual papers deal... more...

  • Conversationby T. Givón

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1997; US$ 188.00

    The papers in this volume were originally presented at the Symposium on Conversation, held at the University of New Mexico in July 1995. The symposium brought together scholars who work on face-to-face communication from a variety of perspectives: social, cultural, cognitive and communicative. Our aim for both the symposium and this volume has been... more...

  • The Noblest Animate Motionby Jeffrey Wollock

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1997; US$ 288.00

    The body of theory on speech production and speech disorder developed prior to Descartes has been so neglected by historians that its very existence is practically unknown today. Yet it provides a framework for understanding the speech process which is not only comprehensive and coherent, but of great relevance to current debates on issues of language... more...

  • Paralanguageby Fernando Poyatos

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1993; US$ 225.00

    This is the first interdisciplinary book-length treatment of paralanguage, briefly defined as: nonverbal vocal or narial communication. After sensitizing the reader to our sound-generating movements and to all human external and environmental sounds for their unquestionable communicative qualities, it realistically combines an anatomical-physiological... more...

  • Language and Actionby Danilo Marcondes de Souza Filho

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1985; US$ 102.00

    This work consists of an examination and revision of some of the main theses of Speech Act Theory in relation to the problem of ideology and action-guiding language. Starting from the idea that linguistic philosophy must take into account how the social structure of the linguistic community may influence and direct the way its language is used, a critical... more...

  • Speech Act Taxonomy as a Tool for Ethnographic Descriptionby Nira Reiss

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1985; US$ 102.00

    This study is intended to design measures for ethnographic description including speech acts in an etic instrumental approach, oriented toward an analysis of the functions of communicative events in relation to the ongoing stream of behavior. A revised taxonomy of speech acts is applied to an empirical corpus and is shown to produce a systematic set... more...
