Argument-marking, morphological partitives have been the topic of language specific studies, while no cross-linguistic or typological analyses have been conducted. Since individual partitives of different languages have been studied, there exists a basis for a more cross-linguistic approach. The purpose of this book is to fill the gap and to bring together research on partitives in different languages.

Category: Fiction

Page: 488

View: 9288

Das Meer, die Erde, die Sterne, die Liebe und der Tod: Eine große Verserzählung über die Erschaffung der Welt. Von der Erschaffung der Erde und der Gestirne erzählt dieses Epos, von der Kultivierung des Bodens und dem launischen Meer, vor allem aber von den Begegnungen mit dem schemenhaften Land im Norden, um dessen Tochter die Herren Wäinämöinen, Lemminkäinen und Ilmarinen gleichermaßen werben. Doch auf die Freier warten gefährliche Aufgaben. Kalewala, das Land des Urvaters Kalewa, ist Schauplatz dieses groß angelegten Freskos der mythenumsponnenen Frühzeit Finnlands. Auf zahlreichen Fußreisen hatte Elias Lönnrot - im Geist des spätromantischen 19. Jahrhunderts - Tausende von Versen mündlich überlieferter Lieder gesammelt, Lieder epischen, lyrischen und beschwörenden Inhalts, die er in der Folge zu einem teils heldisch-kriegerischen, teils zauberhaft-magischen Epos verband. Viele namhafte Übersetzer haben sich am »Kalewala« versucht, doch erst Gisbert Jänickes Arbeit ist es, die den höchsten Ansprüchen genügt: Sie ist vollständig, beruht in allen Details auf dem Original, berücksichtigt auch die neuesten Forschungsergebnisse und besticht durch ihre geschmeidig fließende Eleganz.

Psycholinguistik. Psycholinguistics

Ein internationales Handbuch. An International Handbook

Author: Gert Rickheit,Theo Herrmann,Werner Deutsch

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter

ISBN: 311019404X

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 958

View: 8082

This handbook focuses on new theoretical challenges associated with process-oriented psycholinguistics. Speech acts are embedded in situations that may vary in a multitude of parameters. Speech production and comprehension necessarily have to be both robust and flexible. Flexibility includes that speakers vary in speed, articulation, choice of words and interaction style, depending on specific context conditions. There is need of theoretical approaches that do not exclusively stick to ideals such as grammaticality and coherence - which collapse when confronted with irregularities - but are robust enough to deal with irregularities and disruptions. The handbook describes different methods of analyzing or reconstructing variants and options of language use. The articles contain transcriptions of spontaneous speech as well as experimentally verified studies. The same holds for simulation techniques modelling partial processes and evaluating their efficiency. There are no restrictions with respect to theoretical starting points - modelling of speech acts by neuronal networks as well as rule-based knowledge of representation are both covered in the book. The languages of publication are German and English.
