  • "Haben" als Vollverbby Martin Businger

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 168.00

    This monograph on the verb have in the function of a full verb asserts that have-constructions in the syntactic analysis are to be placed in relationship with absolute with-constructions (cf. Mit den Füßen auf dem Tisch erwarte ich meine Schwiegereltern [Literal translation: With my feet on the table I expect my parents-in-law]). Furthermore, the study... more...

  • 'Harmonisch entgegengesetzt'by Marion Hiller

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 119.00

    "Harmoniously opposed" is a fundamental phrase in Hölderlin's poetology. Until now, however, there has been no systematic study consistently following this central representational structure through Hölderlin's poetic and poetological writings. The present monograph attempts to remedy this deficiency by taking the fundamental structure of "representation",... more...

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

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 168.00

    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 book explores... more...

  • "Perceptual Dialectology"by Christina Ada Anders; Markus Hundt; Alexander Lasch

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 182.00

    Perceptual dialectology is concerned with subjective, non-specialist, naïve perspectives of German and the role they play in day-to-day social interaction. What do non-specialists in linguistics think about dialects and their speakers? What cognitive maps do they have of these dialects? What attitudes do they have towards the dialects and their speakers?... more...

  • "Recht ist Streit"by Jing Li

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 168.00

    Using linguistic instruments this work sets out to give a transparent description of the text-supported and discourse-based legal dispute in the process of reaching a legal judgement. It examines a corpus of authentic texts originating from six related legal cases in Germany, identifying distinct speech act patterns and the specific action strategies... more...

  • "Sinn und Form"by Stephen Parker; Matthew Philpotts

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 182.00

    This extensive history of the legendary literary journal, ?Sinn und Form?, also offers the first systematic analysis of this key type of cultural institution. The study is organised in seven ?anatomical? categories: founding conception; cultural-political context; institutional infrastructure; role of editors; networks of contributors; text and composition;... more...

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

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 210.00

    This historical semantic study examines Otto von Bismarck?s use of the term Volk (?people?) and its synonyms such as Nation or Stamm (?tribe?). It shows that the expressions are multiply polysemous and that individual meanings can be bundled together into concepts (state community, cultural community etc.). Bismarck employs certain repetitive patterns... more...

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

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 182.00

    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 correlativeadverbial clauses. Inthis way, the bookaddresses the relationship between the formal and interpretative... more...
