The Routledge Handbook of Language and Humor presents the first ever comprehensive, in-depth treatment of all the sub-fields of the linguistics of humor, broadly conceived as the intersection of the study of language and humor. The reader will find a thorough historical, terminological, and theoretical introduction to the field, as well as detailed treatments of the various approaches to language and humor. Deliberately comprehensive and wide-ranging, the handbook includes chapter-long treatments on the traditional topics covered by language and humor (e.g., teasing, laughter, irony, psycholinguistics, discourse analysis, the major linguistic theories of humor, translation) but also cutting-edge treatments of internet humor, cognitive linguistics, relevance theoretic, and corpus-assisted models of language and humor. Some chapters, such as the variationist sociolinguistcs, stylistics, and politeness are the first-ever syntheses of that particular subfield. Clusters of related chapters, such as conversation analysis, discourse analysis and corpus-assisted analysis allow multiple perspectives on complex trans-disciplinary phenomena. This handbook is an indispensable reference work for all researchers interested in the interplay of language and humor, within linguistics, broadly conceived, but also in neighboring disciplines such as literary studies, psychology, sociology, anthropology, etc. The authors are among the most distinguished scholars in their fields.

Reading Tourism Texts

A Multimodal Analysis

Page: 200

This volume explores the relationship between tourism and travel texts and contemporary society, and how each is shaped by the other. A multimodal analysis is used to consider a variety of texts including novels, brochures, blogs, websites, radio commercials, videos, postcards and authentic tourist pictures and their meaning-making dynamics within the tourism discourse. The book looks at the ways in which these different texts have influenced how tourists and travellers have been viewed over time and how we envision ourselves as tourists or travellers. It puts forward multimodal analysis as the best framework for exploring the semiotic potential of these texts. Including examples from the UK, Malta, Canada, New Zealand, India, Jamaica and South Africa, this volume will be useful for researchers and students in tourism studies, communication and media studies and applied linguistics.

Das Ostjiddische im Sprachkontakt

Deutsch im Spannungsfeld zwischen Semitisch und Slavisch

Seit ihrer Entstehung ist die jüdische Varietät des Deutschen, die sich im Laufe der Jahrhunderte zu einer eigenen Sprache, dem Jiddischen, entwickelt hat, fast ununterbrochen anderssprachigen Einflüssen ausgesetzt gewesen. Thema der Studie ist das osteuropäische Jiddisch, das Ostjiddische, im Kontakt mit dem Hebräischen und dem Babylonisch-Aramäischen einerseits und den slavischen Sprachen der nicht-jüdischen Umgebung in Osteuropa andererseits. Die Studie verfolgt dabei zwei Ziele: Erstens werden in einer Auseinandersetzung mit der bisherigen einschlägigen Forschungsliteratur ausgewählte Interferenzerscheinungen (tatsächliche und nur scheinbare) im Ostjiddischen nach strengen Kriterien auf ihren Zeugniswert hin überprüft, um zu einer qualitativ vertretbaren Gesamteinschätzung des semitischen und slavischen Einflusses auf das Ostjiddische in den Kernbereichen Phonik, Flexion und Syntax sowie in festeren Teilen der Lexik (grammatische Wörter, Ableitung, Verbalaspekt) zu gelangen; zweitens wird versucht, das Kräfteverhältnis zwischen dem Semitischen und dem Slavischen im Kontakt mit dem Ostjiddischen genauer zu bestimmen. Es läßt sich zeigen, daß Entlehnung phonischer und grammatischer Merkmale aus dem Slavischen ins Ostjiddische in geringerem Umfang stattfand als bisher angenommen und solche Entlehnung zumeist nur dann erfolgte, wenn das Hebräische und das Baylonisch-Aramäische über typologisch vergleichbare Merkmale verfügten.
