Par­ti­cles in Ger­man, Eng­lish, and beyondBuchcover
Ger­man­ic lan­guages have been rec­og­nized as hav­ing not only inten­si­fy­ing or focus par­ti­cles, but also so-called modal par­ti­cles. The rel­e­vant items are spe­cial­ized dis­course mark­ers joined by char­ac­ter­is­tic syn­tac­tic prop­er­ties. After an intro­duc­to­ry overview of the com­plex field, the con­tri­bu­tions of the cur­rent vol­ume cap­i­tal­ize on, but also work much fur­ther beyond the base­line of the estab­lished insights. They offer analy­ses of (a) new data types with­in and some­times across sev­er­al Ger­man­ic lan­guages (e.g. varieties/stages of Ger­man, Dutch, or Nor­we­gian), encom­pass­ing dif­fer­ent class­es of par­ti­cles and a vari­ety of syn­tac­tic-seman­tic as well as usage-based aspects; (b) the clas­si­cal dichoto­my between lan­guages like Ger­man and Eng­lish when it comes to the avail­abil­i­ty of modal par­ti­cles both syn­chron­i­cal­ly and diachron­i­cal­ly; © cru­cial inte­grat­ed insight from non-Ger­man­ic lan­guages such as French, Hun­gar­i­an, Ital­ian, Man­darin, or Viet­namese. A num­ber of most­ly inter­face-based pro­pos­als of sev­er­al lan­guages as well as fur­ther gen­er­al­iza­tions are put on the table for both expert and novice read­ers in the field.

The alter­na­tive moder­ni­ty of the bicy­cle in British and French lit­er­a­ture, 1880–1920
BuchcoverThis book engages with the long-over­looked bicy­cle as a cru­cial lit­er­ary and cul­tur­al object. In a selec­tion of turn-of-the-cen­tu­ry fic­tion, trav­el writ­ing and non-fic­tion, cycling is revealed to be a favoured lit­er­ary device, allow­ing writ­ers to struc­ture their nar­ra­tives in new ways or depict a fresh sen­so­ry and aes­thet­ic expe­ri­ence. More­over, this study reveals that from its ear­li­est days, the bicy­cle played a com­pelling counter-cul­tur­al role, propos­ing an alter­na­tive moder­ni­ty that direct­ly chal­lenged bour­geois, patri­ar­chal, cap­i­tal­ist soci­ety. From blur­ring gen­der and class divi­sions, to offer­ing a more empow­er­ing inter­ac­tion with the machine and allow­ing an embod­ied and social expe­ri­ence of space, the bicy­cle point­ed a human-pow­ered route to progress amidst increas­ing­ly mech­a­nised visions of the future.
