  • "Kann man denn auch nicht lachend sehr ernsthaft sein?"by Daniel Fulda; Antje Roeben; Norbert Wichard

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 152.50

    Making readers laugh ? or in the theatre making the audience laugh ? is one of the most important but least acknowledged aims of literature. Even though we often laugh out of pure exuberance or smirk mockingly, it is nevertheless true that one can be ?very serious even whilst laughing?, as Lessing?s Minna von Barnhelm already knew. This... more...

  • 'Volk' bei Otto von Bismarckby Szilvia Odenwald-Varga

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 185.19

    This historical semantic study examines Otto von Bismarck?s use of the term Volk (?people?) and its synonyms such as Nation or Stamm (?tribe?).

Bismarck employs certain repetitive... more...

  • (Nicht-)kanonische Nebensätze im Deutschenby Katrin Axel-Tober

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 163.40

    This diachronously and synchronously oriented study focuses not only on the creation of the ?dass? sentence but also on non-canonical subordinate-clause constructions such as argumental and relative clauses with main-clause word order and correlative adverbial clauses. In this way, the book addresses the relationship between the formal... more...
