Nachdem der fremdsprachliche Unterricht jahrelang fast ausschließlich aus Übersetzen bestand, wurde er in den 80er Jahren des 19. Jahrhunderts völlig aus ihm verbannt.

Typologically-close languages such as French and Spanish share many typological universals and macroparametric options but display different microparametric options as well as obvious and subtle morphological, syntactic and processing differences. This counterposed situation that we conceptualize as typological similarity versus typological proximity... more...
