Abstract

This book presents a range of ongoing studies on atypical language development in Romance languages. Despite the steady increase in the number of studies on typical language development, there is still little research about atypical language development, especially in Romance languages. This book covers four main conditions causing atypical language development. Part I explores the linguistic and communicative characteristics of preterm children learning Romance languages. The focus of Part II centers on children with Specific Language Impairment. Hearing Loss in Part III is another relevant factor leading to atypical language development. The final part IV zeroes in on genetic syndromes coupled to cognitive impairment with special attention to language development. This book presents a much needed overview of the most recent findings in all relevant fields dealing with atypical language development in children speaking Romance languages.

Abstract

Was zeigen uns Wortspiele über das Funktionieren von Sprache und Kommunikation? Wie groß sind die kreativen Freiräume, die im Wortspiel genutzt werden – und wo gibt es Regeln und Grenzen des Spiels? Sprachspielerinnen und -spieler der Gegenwart präsentieren in Texten und Interviews ihre Gedanken zum kunstvollen Umgang mit Sprache und zu grundlegenden Eigenschaften des Spiels mit Wörtern und Sprache. Beiträge aus Bereichen wie Literatur, Film, Kabarett und Poetry Slam werden ergänzt durch Kurzbeiträge aus der Wissenschaft, die unterschiedliche Perspektiven der Analyse von Wortspielen aufzeigen. Der Band greift damit theoretische Fragen auf, die in den anderen Bänden der Buchreihe The Dynamics of Wordplay erörtert werden. Im Rahmen der Brückenschläge zwischen Wissenschaft und Praxis ergeben sich vielfältige Querverbindungen, und es zeigen sich übereinstimmende Beobachtungen wie auch sich wechselseitig ergänzende Perspektiven auf das Wortspiel in seiner Vielseitigkeit und Komplexität.

Abstract

The decades around 1800 constitute the seminal period of European nationalism. The linguistic corollary of this was the rise of standard language ideology, from Finland to Spain, and from Iceland to the Habsburg Empire. Amidst these international events, the case of Dutch in the Netherlands offers a unique example. After the rise of the ideology from the 1750s onwards, the new discourse of one language–one nation was swiftly transformed into concrete top-down policies aimed at the dissemination of the newly devised standard language across the entire population of the newly established Dutch nation-state. Thus, the Dutch case offers an exciting perspective on the concomitant rise of cultural nationalism, national language planning and standard language ideology. This study offers a comprehensive yet detailed analysis of these phenomena by focussing on the ideology underpinning the new language policy, the institutionalisation of this ideology in metalinguistic discourse, the implementation of the policy in education, and the effects of the policy on actual language use.

Abstract

Little is known about the conditions that led to German-Swiss diglossia. Based on public discourse about Swiss German, the study shows that with respect to the history of language awareness, today’s typical bilingualism in Swiss German and standard German became consolidated in the 19th century in close relation to societal processes. The study is a major contribution to the linguistic history of German-speaking Switzerland.

Abstract

“Language can be this incredibly forceful material—there’s something about it where if you can&#xD;strip away its history, get to the materiality of it, it can rip into you like claws” (Hill in Vischer&#xD;1995, 11). This arresting image by media artist Gary Hill evokes the nearly physical force of&#xD;language to hold recipients in its grip. That power seems to lie in the material of language itself,&#xD;which, with a certain rawness, may captivate or touch, pounce on, or even harm its addressee.&#xD;Hill’s choice of words is revealing: ‘rip into’ suggests not only a metaphorical emotional pull but&#xD;also the literal physicality of linguistic attack. It is no coincidence that the statement comes from&#xD;a media artist, since media artworks often use language to produce a strong sensorial stimulus.&#xD;Media artworks not only manipulate language as a material in itself, but they also manipulate the&#xD;viewer’s perceptual channels. The guises and effects of language as artistic material are the topic&#xD;of this book, The Literariness of Media Art.

Abstract

Competence orientation opens up always new perspectives for teaching German as an Foreign and as a second language (DaF/DaZ) . The current tendencies of competence orientation presented here are include: - Specialist language skills in the fields of theology and medicine, - the expertise of teachers in relation to learning styles, Grammar and Intercultural Competence as well as - two contrasting analyses of the speech act of the written complaint and oral criticism. Without exception, the authors are enthusiastic and inspiring Teachers who are at the same time committed and open to new challenges, going the extra mile in research. The result of this close interaction of theory and practice are research results with direct application orientation. This is the claim of the series "DaF/DaZ in research and teaching". Christina Maria Ersch has studied German and Scandinavian Studies in Göttingen and German as a foreign language in Mainz, where she works as an academic employee. She has been teaching for several years DaF, is a certified telc examiner and teaches professional training courses on neurodidactics and action-oriented learning. Her research interests include the general didactics with focus on practical competence orientation and the intercultural communication. Die Kompetenzorientierung eröffnet gerade für das Fach Deutsch als Fremd- und Zweitsprache (DaF/DaZ) immer wieder neue Perspektiven für die Lehre. Die hier vorgestellten aktuellen Tendenzen der Kompetenzorientierung umfassen: • fachspezifische Sprachkompetenzen für die Bereiche Theologie und Medizin, • die Fachkompetenzen von Lehrkräften in Bezug auf Lernstile, Grammatik und Interkulturelle Kompetenz sowie • zwei kontrastive Analysen des Sprechaktes der schriftlichen Beschwerde und der mündlichen Kritikäußerung. Die Autorinnen sind ohne Ausnahme begeisterte und begeisternde Lehrkräfte und Dozentinnen, die gleichzeitig engagiert und offen neue Wege in der Forschung gehen. Das Ergebnis dieser engen Verzahnung von Theorie und Praxis sind Forschungsergebnisse mit direkter Anwendungsorientierung. Das ist der Anspruch der Reihe DaF/DaZ in Forschung und Lehre. Christina Maria Ersch hat Germanistik und Skandinavistik in Göttingen und Deutsch als Fremdsprache in Mainz studiert, wo sie als wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin tätig ist. Sie unterrichtet seit mehreren Jahren DaF, ist zertifizierte telc-Prüferin und leitet Weiterbildungskurse zu Neurodidaktik und Handlungsorientiertem Lernen. Ihre Forschungsinteressen liegen u. a. in der allgemeinen Didaktik mit Fokus auf praktischer Kompetenzorientierung und der interkulturellen Kommunikation.&#xD;

Abstract

This volume examines the loanwords found in 18 late-Byzantine histories and chronicles. In order to analyze the lexical interferences in the lexicon of late-Byzantine historical literature, all words were included (except place names and proper names) that substantiate language contact. The editors place special emphasis on the sociolinguistic context in which the loanwords were used.
