This analysis illustrates both the multimodal constitution of language use and the diversity of concepts of national identity. Using an interdisciplinary approach located between variation linguistics, conversation research and psycholinguistics, this study delves into the interplay between language use, language processing and usage-based syntactical representations in linguistic knowledge.
The publication takes a discourse-grammatical perspective to address discourses about destruction in the Second World War and post-war reconstruction in the cities of Mannheim, Paderborn, and Bremen from to Linguistics and medicine is a growing branch of research in the medical humanities. The interdisciplinary contributions in this volume address current, socially relevant issues in doctor-patient communication, public mass-media discourses, and specialist communication.
They examine the processes through which knowledge is constituted, negotiated, and transferred in various sociocultural contexts. Modern heroes are people who fight and sacrifice, who help and volunteer, who work in silence but still achieve great things. They are role models, show moral courage and inspire us to follow in their footsteps. They promote reconciliation, impart values and generate identity. This monograph illustrates how the multifaceted phenomenon of the heroic is negotiated communicatively and how heroes shape our society with the way they think and act.
Empathy has become a guiding principle in the cognitive, social, and cultural sciences. Until now, linguistics has failed to adequately address the theme, despite the fact that language and verbal interaction in human relationships are the fundamental means and vehicles for empathy.
This volume includes papers from the disciplines of philosophy, ethnology, psychology, and linguistics that are essential for a future linguistics of empathy. A range of disciplines have described different access points to authenticity, but until now, there has been no empirical, discourse-linguistic investigation of authenticity.
Personal authenticity is always linked to its social and situational performance but is manifested first and foremost in the attribution of authenticity. This study presents a systematic analytic model of the discursive creation of non- authenticity in the public sphere. The study focuses on linguistically unsophisticated speakers — linguistic laypersons — and their understanding of good language.
The perspectives taken in the study are native to the sociology of knowledge as well as cognitive and social linguistics. Their linguistic forms of realization can serve to express personal inferences or references to the statements of third parties.
Besides theoretical definitions, the emphasis is on the empirical intelligibility of the phenomenon. These approaches are contrasted to studies examining how digital media users actually engage with big data. This study investigates the notion of security in contentious public discourse to derive conclusions about contemporary societal world-views.
It clearly shows that by means of diverse concepts of threat, security has become established as an omnipresent word of legitimation and mobilization, carrying great potential power for implementing political objectives and measures. This volume demonstrates that pictures are a central communicative resource for constructing knowledge in economics. By examining discursively structured inventories of images, media-specific relations between text and image, and domain-typical ways of processing images, the essays in this volume draw conclusions about the historical and discursive context of pictures, harnessing perspectives from linguistic, literary, and cultural studies.
In the aftermath of school shootings, a discursive wave spreads through the mass media, constantly reformulating personal observations, scholarly proposals for solutions, and legislative measures. The study examines this example of the social constitution of knowledge using pragmatic and text linguistic methods to describe the patterns by which communication is structured in the public sphere.
This study applies the linguistic procedures of semantic frame analysis to trace the origins of complex specialized institutional terminology from the legal domain. Engaging in a detailed discussion of the advantages and limitations of this analytic method, it uses frame analysis to develop a semiotic history of concepts and concept networks in criminal and civil law. The study examines the metaphorically shaped inventories of knowledge that help constitute discourses of economic and sociopolitical crisis, and their role in legitimizing policy interventions.
This discourse analysis systematically combines qualitative and quantitative methods to examine the linguistic forms and strategies that invoke agonality and mark conflicts in German and English. It applies a multilayered discourse methodology to compare the language used in media discourses relating to Hurricane Sandy and the energy extraction method of fracking.
Press articles convey, propagate, and re produce explicit and subliminal gender-specific images of body and role. This corpus linguistic analysis looks at patterns of such explicit and implicit statements about gender, both synchronically and diachronically.
The social meanings and interpretations found in the texts are examined using a frame-semantic approach. It is remarkable how little research has addressed the specific ways that language contributes to creating notions of gender and gender roles. This study addresses the overall question of how gender concepts are conveyed linguistically, and extends the question to consider how specific gender concepts found their way into school textbooks in the first place.
In the spirit of linguistics and epistemology, this volume addresses central aspects of the triad of language, knowledge, and discourse. The essays elaborate central questions in historical and cognitive semantics, the theory of language and language comprehension, and textual and discourse semantics.
This volume examines ethnic stereotypes of China and the Chinese people in German public media. It focuses on the formative cultural, linguistic, and media conditions for generating stereotypical views, their manifestations in the new millennium, and methods for studying them. The book surveys current research and formulates suggestions to improve German-Chinese intercultural communication. Linguistics has been underrepresented in the interdisciplinary field of decision making research.
This study seeks to fill this gap by developing a linguistic model for the communicative practice of decision making. For the first time, it combines the methodologies of functional pragmatics and discourse linguistics, illustrating the method by specifically examining German parliamentary decision making in the area of energy policy in — Drawing upon public political discourse on economic crises, this study applies the principles of discursive linguistics to the history of argumentation to study how linguistics argumentation constructs "crises" as social facts.
The author examines various questions, including how "crisis constructions" become incorporated in the legitimization of political action and how certain viewpoints become manifest. This study develops a detailed description and analysis of passive structures in German along with an original frame of reference. The aim is to locate constructions within a construction network "constructicon" and to view particularities of construction based on their actual implementations in usage.
The study is founded on a broad-based corpus study. This study examines major print media organizations to analyze and compare the essential features of media discourse on economic crisis in Germany and China. Researchers combine the methodology of linguistic frame analysis with qualitative research methods from the social sciences.
This compendium offers access to readers interested in the humanities and in social, cultural, and legal studies to a broad and multifaceted exploration of linguistic practices in the legal sciences. A range of scholars from the fields of linguistics and the legal sciences focus on specific performative aspects of the connections between language and the law. This study examines user perspectives regarding virtual research environments in the area of digital publishing.
It analyzes user requirements from the viewpoints of edition philology, text and discourse linguistics, information theory, and the theory of science. A focus is placed on information technology practices to manage and disseminate knowledge through digital data, text, discourse, and coherence structures.
Companies trade not only in raw materials and services but also systematically create factual, non-physical realities, such as identity, as part of their object worlds. Re- Producing the knowledge of a society about itself, they provide information on the collective identity of the German society.
It uses a corpus of spoken and written communications on the bioethics debate to examine qualitative and quantitative correlations between spoken and written verbal patterns and roles, medium and context. This study combines linguistic and literary approaches to explore the unique structure of this poetics of memory — the reciprocal referentiality of memory and what is remembered — in each of its singular facets.
This study seeks to develop a foundation for a theory of meaning that views linguistic innovation and discursive dynamics as the normal state of affairs. It integrates systems and behavioral theory, identifying discourses as the loci of change in linguistic meaning. An analysis of multi-code metaphors makes plausible the discursive sensitivity of images in advertisements and leads to a proposal for a multicodal expansion of discourse analysis.
The notions of Islam that are prevalent in the public imagination are founded and shaped by public discourse itself. This study examines the process by which perceptions of Islam are constructed using the methods of lexical semantics, discourse analysis, and corpus linguistics. This specific combination of methods illustrates the unique textual and discursive potentials of contemporary linguistics. The greater part of our knowledge is bound up in discursive contexts. That which incontrovertibly exists is presented discursively as a fact.
Thus, factual knowledge is produced in discourses. This role of discourse lends great relevance to discursive analysis and to the process of deciphering discursive practices. This is all the more true when power relations determine which knowledge is worthy of preservation and which should be considered expendable.
The studies included in this volume undertake an analysis of discourse from the perspectives of linguistics, sociology, philosophy, and risk research. The aim of this study is to create a format for understanding the remaining fifty percent using construction grammar analysis. The study employs frame semantics to explain the compositionality of the verb and the construction. The system is based on a flexible schema-instance relationship, where instances are the prototypes for schemata.
This interdisciplinary volume contains articles by well-known researchers on the function of art as a medium for the self-affirmation of the individual, of the social group, or of the collective. It is a compendium for all those involved at the theoretical and practical levels in the description, communication, and criticism of art.
The analysis of legal texts in the context of legislation is a previously unexplored field of research. Taking over texts as reference material, the study illuminates the discourse actors, the semantic struggles and the process of legal textual formulation involved in the legislation.
Using linguistic instruments this work sets out to give a transparent description of the text-supported and discourse-based legal dispute in the process of reaching a legal judgement. It examines a corpus of authentic texts originating from six related legal cases in Germany, identifying distinct speech act patterns and the specific action strategies and perspective-defining efforts that are used with them.
With their help a model is developed for the analysis of this specialized communication process. This work examines discourse analysis in terms of its theory and methodology and their empirical implementation. The linguistics of discourse is seen as being based in action theory. A multilevel discourse analysis model is developed as methodology. With reference to the example of the bioethical discourse surrounding stem cell research, the author shows how keywords, metaphors and the topoi of argumentation are positioned and semantically fixed in the context of ideological argumentation and how this leads to a perspectivized construct of reality.
After forty years the time has come for an interim status report, which this collective volume undertakes. Thus, it represents a contribution of cultural-studies to the history of language, as well as to semiotics, and to the history of the media and contemporary history. The subject of this book is the media coverage of avian flu bird flu in A large part of media coverage consists of reflection on the media contributions and their potential power, where one aspect stands out in particular: the effect of fear.
The primary aim of the book is to explain all phenomena, and especially those that are contradictory at first glance. Discourse and ways of thinking are mirrored in typical language usage. With corpus linguistic methods it is possible to expose recurring formula and patterns of language usage and their variations. This book demonstrates how inductive theories for cultural studies analyses can be derived from large bodies of text. The book is aimed at both scholars doing research in cultural studies and advanced students.
In this volume, the research network Language and Knowledge presents theoretical and methodological foundations of research into the constitution of knowledge in linguistic formations. A particular focus is placed on the concepts of knowledge and discourse, alongside methodological issues from conversational analysis, cognitive grammar and construction grammar. The descriptive instruments presented are demonstrated in numerous individual analyses from the fields of nanotechnology, biomedicine, politics, education, art, religion, mathematics, law and economics.
The book is concerned with frame theory, which in recent years has experienced an immense growth in interest, not only in Germanic Linguistics. Frames are knowledge structures in the long-term memory which are of relevance for understanding expressions in language.
Thus, for example, the gratuity frame makes knowledge available about eating in a restaurant. Frames can also be deployed as analytical tools. The book examines, against the background of the debate about the introduction of pre-implantation diagnostics in Germany, the role of linguistic naming — so-called thematizations — in the public sphere. The study shows that these thematizations not only reflect linguistic controversy, but at the same time, precisely mirror the current societal debates.
