In the spring of 1623 Charles, Prince of Wales, the young heir to the English and Scottish thrones donned a false wig and beard and slipped out of England under the assumed name of John Smith in order to journey to Madrid and secure for himself the hand of the King of Spain's daughter. His father James I and VI had been toying with the idea of a Spanish match for his son since as early as 1605, despite the profoundly divisive ramifications such a policy would have in the face of the determined 'Puritan' opposition in parliament, committed to combatting the forces of international Catholicism at every opportunity. With the Spanish ambassador, the machiavellian Count of Gondomar's encouragement to 'mount' Spain, Charles impetuously took matters into his own hands and as the negotiations stalled he departed secretly in the guise of Mr Smith to win with his romantic and foolhardy daring what his father could not achieve through diplomacy. The eventual failure and public humiliation that followed his journey to Madrid has been cited as a major influence on Charles's subsequent development and policies as king. Until now, there has been no attempt to systematically explore the failure of the Spanish match from an interdisciplinary perspective, including what it reveals about the practice of diplomacy, the taste, art, and dress of the period, its literature and the long-term consequences for Anglo-Spanish relations. In this volume leading scholars from a variety of disciplines analyse the reactions and representations of Charles's romantic escapade and offer their insights into the affair. In doing so many traditional assumptions about the trip are overturned. By taking into account the political, social, religious and international dimensions of the event, and examining historical, literary and artistic evidence, this volume paints a rounded, lively and vivid portrait of one of the most remarkable episodes of the Jacobean age.

Content and Language Integrated Learning

This book contributes to the growth of interest in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL), an approach to second/foreign language learning that requires the use of the target language to learn content. Within the framework of European strategies to promote multilingualism, CLIL has begun to be used extensively in a variety of language learning contexts, and at different educational systems and language programmes. This book brings together critical analyses on theoretical and implementation issues of Content and Language Integrated Learning, and empirical studies on the effectiveness of this type of instruction on learners’ language competence. The basic theoretical assumption behind this book is that through successful use of the language to learn content, learners will develop their language proficiency more effectively while they learn the academic content specified in the curricula.

Den Gegenstand des Handbuches bildet die Lexikographie und die Wörterbuchforschung, und letztere präsentiert sich in den drei Teilbänden erstmals in ihren verschiedenen Ausprägungen mit einem großen Reichtum an Details, doch zugleich in einer zusammenhängenden und umfassenden Weise: 248 Autoren haben in den Sprachen Deutsch, Englisch und Französisch 349 Artikel geschrieben, welche auf 38 Kapitel verteilt sind. Die Zielsetzung des Handbuches, die sich aus der Lage der Lexikographie und dem Forschungsstand der örterbuchforschung ergibt, ist es die Lexikographie aller Sprachkreise der Erde zu registrieren sowie die der größeren Sprachen, und hier besonders die der europäischen und die ihrer Varietäten, detailliert darzustellen, den Status und die Funktion von lexikographischen Nachschlagewerken, insonderheit die von Sprachwörterbüchern in ihren unterschiedlichen Typen innerhalb der Kultursysteme von Gesellschaften zu beschreiben, die Geschichte der Lexikographie an Beispielen größerer Kulturen zu entwerfen, auf der Grundlage der Kenntnis der gesellschaftlichen Funktionen von Wörterbüchern und der Buchgeschichte und unter Berücksichtigung von Theorien über den Aufbau des Lexikons und seine Stellung im Sprachganzen Ausschnitte zu einer Allgemeinen Theorie der Lexikographie zu liefern, die Methodik der Lexikographie für alle Phasen des lexikographischen Prozesses, von der äußeren Arbeitsorganisation der Wörterbuchkanzleien bis hin zu methodischen Einzelverfahren unter Berücksichtigung des Computereinsatzes darzustellen und weiterzuentwickeln, auf die Unterschiede zwischen den realistischen Möglichkeiten und der gegebenen Realität der lexikographischen Praxis hinzuweisen und aus der Kenntnis von lexikographischen Defiziten Möglichkeiten für qualitative Verbesserungen und aussichtsreiche Perspektiven für neue lexikographische Projekte und metalexikographische Forschungen aufzuzeigen, die primäre und sekundäre Literatur möglichst breit und zuverlässig zu dokumentieren und insgesamt nachhaltig dazu beizutragen, daß die moderne wissenschaftliche Lexikographie zu einer von Wissenschaftlern lehrbaren und von Studenten lernbaren praxisorientierten Disziplin entwickelt wird.

Dictionary of the Printing and Allied Industries

The first edition of this dictionary, compiled by F.J.M. Wijnekus and published in 1967, was the result of years of systematic collection and preparation of thousands of terms and expressions which were until then not to be found in any other dictionary. The material was correlated for use in his daily work and, as the reputation of his private collection spread, there was an increasing demand for access to these findings. Until 1967 there was no comprehensive multilingual dictionary on the subject; former publications were incomplete and out of date and lacked clear definition - often leading to disastrous misunderstandings. Furthermore, the subject of printing, paper and ink technology had never been dealt with, in dictionary form, in relation to other aspects of the graphic industry. This new work, prepared by F.J.M. Wijnekus and his son, has been considerably up-dated. Much time has been devoted to checking the material against the most reliable and authoritative sources. The usefulness of the work has been further enhanced by the addition of Spanish and Italian to the original languages of English, French and German. The first edition was received with much enthusiastic praise and this new dictionary will undoubtedly continue to be an invaluable tool for all those working with the printed word in the widest sense. It is a reference work which should be in the hands of all those in any way connected with the printing industry, paper manufacturers, ink manufacturers, printers, bookbinders, publishers, lithographers, lay-out men and graphical research institutes.
