Abstract

This ambitious and ground-breaking book examines the linguistic studies produced by missionaries based on the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America (and particularly Haida Gwaii) during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Making extensive use of unpublished archival materials, the author demonstrates that the missionaries were responsible for introducing many innovative and insightful grammatical analyses. Rather than merely adopting Graeco-Roman models, they drew extensively upon studies of non-European languages, and a careful exploration of their scripture translations reveal the origins of the Haida sociolect that emerged as a result of the missionary activity. The complex interactions between the missionaries and anthropologists are also discussed, and it is shown that the former sometimes anticipated linguistic analyses that are now incorrectly attributed to the latter.

Abstract

Die vorliegende Arbeit hat das Ziel, Prinzipien des Aufbaus des Gramatično izkazanje herauszuarbeiten und diese mit den Prinzipien des Aufbaus der kirchenslavischen Grammatik von Meletij Smotryckyj zu vergleichen. Die Zielsetzung bedingt weiterhin, daß zunächst der Versuch unternommen wird zu klären, welche der zwei in Frage kommenden Ausgaben der Grammatik Smotryćkyjs, nämlich entweder die Erstausgabe von Jevje oder die Ausgabe von Moskau, die sich in einigen Punkten von der Jevjeer Ausgabe unterscheidet, Križanić in Sibirien zur Verfügung hatte. Die anschließende Analyse des Aufbaus des Gramatično izkazanje erfolgt in zwei Teilen. Zunächst wird die Anordnung der verschiedenen Teile der Grammatik (Phonetik, Syntax, Redeteile) bei Križanić betrachtet und anschließend der Aufbau der Teile selbst analysiert.

Abstract

Wer sind die Helden und Denker in Pädagogik und Erziehungswissenschaft, wer ihre Heldinnen und Denkerinnen? Welche Personen werden in den Nachschlagewerken der Disziplin – in ihren Wissensspeichern – mit eigenem Lemma vorgestellt? Welche Konjunkturen und Kanonisierungsprozesse lassen sich beobachten? Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht die Personenlemmata in allen 29 deutschsprachigen, alphabetisch sortierten, allgemeinpädagogischen Fachlexika bis zur Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts. In einem quantitativen Teil analysiert sie systematisch-vergleichend die Lexika und ihre Personenlemmata nach verschiedenen Kategorien. In einem qualitativen Teil werden für vier Personen – Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi, Friedrich Daniel Ernst Schleiermacher, Wilhelm Rein und Helene Lange – sowie die Gruppe der ersten in Lexika genannten Frauen Wandel und Kontinuität in der lexikografischen Rezeption und Darstellung vertieft analysiert. Die Arbeit bietet eine Rekonstruktion des Wissens über Personen in den historischen Nachschlagewerken der Disziplin und Anschlussmöglichkeiten für aktuelle Forschung.

Abstract

In the present edition, an attempt is made to use a grammatical treatise known and sometimes misunderstood for more than 100 years, namely the Old Russian translation (hereinafter referred to as Pravila) of an anonymous medieval textbook of Latin syntax (Regulae congruitatum, constructiones et regimina, im hereinafter referred to as Regulae), in a particular form which is intended to facilitate both its consideration and evaluation as well as the interpretation of some not quite obvious points. On the one hand, the Latin template, its genesis, purpose, effect and dissemination will be examined and briefly described, on the other hand, the interlinear text form should not only allow the comparison with the Latin basic text, but also, above all, the restored interlinear text form in the foreground to let. detention

Jerome: Three Men in a Boat (to say nothing of the dog); 2) Graham Greene: The Burnt Out Case; 3) Iris Murdoch: Unicorn.

Il "trompe-l'œil" letterario, ovvero il sorriso ironico nell'opera di Wilhelm Hauff

Abstract

Literary trompe-l'oeil intends to emancipate the enigmatic and distinctive figure of Hauff from his long and unjust marginalization resulting from a now outdated current of criticism, to offer a new interpretation of his Märchen for a general rereading of this modern literary caricaturist's works. On approaching his texts, one cannot but notice how they are imbued with continual and insistent, bewitching, caustic and alienating allusions, just like the Mona Lisa's smile. With a constant critical scepticism and a subtle illusionist skill, this demythologized 'budding Satan' looks at the present situation through the 'diabolic lenses' of irony, making his works a sort of literary Befreiungskrieg, in which he lays claim to a heterotopic space of free fantastic-humorist expression, along the undulating route leading from Sterne to Heine via Jean Paul.

Abstract

By the 1920s and early 1930s the dime novel had already become well established as a medium for serial fiction and it developed innovative ways of shaping the temporality of literary communication: Recurring heroes made an appearance in more than one dime novel series at the same time, some even across media; publishers and writers found collective forms of text production not aiming to create one timeless work of art, but a continuous series of texts; readers learned to orient themselves with competing publishing schedules of different media and to comprehend the text world of a dime novel series by connecting a series of texts. The book deals with the question of how publishers, writers and readers shaped ‚seriality‘ in the process of creating the fictional worlds of dime novels.

Abstract

This descriptive and comprehensive study on the discursive struggle over interpersonal relations in online message boards is located at the fascinating interface of pragmatics and computer-mediated discourse – a research area which has so far not attracted much scientific interest. It sets out to shed light on the question how interpersonal relations are established, managed and negotiated in online message boards by giving a valid overview of the entire panoply of interpersonal relations (and their interrelations), including both positively and negatively marked behavior. With the first part of the book providing an in-depth discussion and refinement of the pivotal theoretical positions of both fields of research, students as well as professionals are (re-)acquainted with the subject at hand. Thus supplying a framework for the ensuing case study, the empirical part displays the results of the analysis of 50 threads (ca. 300,000 words) of a popular British message board.

Abstract

This chapter highlights the relevance of text categorisation for research in legal translation by focusing on institutional translation settings, namely: the European Union (EU), the United Nations (UN) and the World Trade Organization (WTO), and their corresponding adjudicative bodies.1 After briefly reviewing recurrent issues and models of legal text classification (section 2), a multidimensional approach is applied to the multilingual text production of the three representative institutional translation settings during three years over the span of a decade (2005, 2010 and 2015), as part of the project “Legal Translation in International Institutional Settings: Scope, Strategies and Quality Markers” (LETRINT) (section 3). The resulting subdivisions are integrated into a categorisation matrix and discussed as a way of illustrating the relative nature and implications of text classifications. The fine-grained description of corpus design and representativeness, technical aspects of corpus compilation and full taxonomies of genres are not addressed in this chapter.

Abstract

"Madeleine’s diary is unique as she wrote it to record as much as she could about everyday life, people and events so she could use these written traces to rekindle memories later for the family from whom she had been parted. Many diaries of that era focus on the political situation. Madeleine’s diary does reflect and engage with military and political events. It also provides an unprecedented day-by-day account of the struggle to manage material deprivation, physical hardship, mental exhaustion and depression during the Occupation. The diary is also a record of Madeleine’s determination to achieve her ambition to become a university academic at a time when there was little encouragement for women to prioritise education and career over marriage and motherhood. Her diary is edited and translated here for the first time. Dr Wendy Michallat was born in West Yorkshire. She studied at the Universities of Warwick and Nottingham and lectures in the School of Languages and Cultures at the University of Sheffield. She researches and teaches French cultural history, life-writing and popular culture and has published on diverse subjects including cartoon art, women’s football and first-wave French feminism.
