Brückenschläge: Linguistik an den Schnittstellen

Sarah Brom­mer, Ker­sten Sven Roth, Jür­gen Spitzmüller (Hrsg.)

Der Sam­mel­band regt an, über den Teller­rand der Lin­guis­tik hin­auszuschauen, dor­thin zu gehen, wo sich die (Sub)Disziplinen nicht mehr zuständig fühlen, und dabei die Gegen­stände, Zugänge sowie Hand­lungsräume neu zu betra­cht­en. Die Beiträge leucht­en die Schnittstellen zwis­chen den insti­tu­tionell ver­fes­tigten Diszi­plinen aus und disku­tieren, wo sin­nvolle Gren­züber­schre­itun­gen und Brück­en­schläge nötig sind, um starre „Denkstile“ (Lud­wik Fleck) aufzubrechen, diszi­plinäre Gewis­sheit­en zu hin­ter­fra­gen und mögliche neue Gegen­stands­bes­tim­mungen vorzunehmen.

Corpus Pragmatics

Daniela Lan­dert, Daria Dayter, Thomas C. Messer­li, Miri­am A. Locher (Hrsg.)

This Ele­ment dis­cuss­es the chal­lenges and oppor­tu­ni­ties that dif­fer­ent types of cor­po­ra offer for the study of prag­mat­ic phe­nom­e­na. The focus lies on a hands-on approach to meth­ods and data that pro­vides ori­en­ta­tion for method­olog­i­cal deci­sions. In addi­tion, the Ele­ment iden­ti­fies areas in which new method­olog­i­cal devel­op­ments are need­ed in order to make new types of data acces­si­ble for prag­mat­ic research. Lin­guis­tic cor­po­ra are cur­rent­ly under­go­ing diver­si­fi­ca­tion. While one trend is to move towards increas­ing­ly large cor­po­ra, anoth­er trend is to enhance cor­po­ra with more spe­cialised and lay­ered anno­ta­tion. Both these trends offer new chal­lenges and oppor­tu­ni­ties for the study of prag­mat­ics. This vol­ume pro­vides a prac­ti­cal overview of state-of-the-art cor­pus-prag­mat­ic meth­ods in rela­tion to dif­fer­ent types of cor­pus data, cov­er­ing estab­lished meth­ods as well as inno­v­a­tive approach­es. This title is also avail­able as Open Access on Cam­bridge Core.

Valency over Time: Diachronic Perspectives on Valency Patterns and Valency Orientation

Sil­via Luraghi & Elisa Roma (Hrsg.)

Valen­cy pat­terns and valen­cy ori­en­ta­tion have been fre­quent top­ics of research under dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives, often poor­ly con­nect­ed. Diachron­ic stud­ies on these top­ics is even less sys­tem­at­ic than syn­chron­ic ones. The papers in this book bring togeth­er two strands of research on valen­cy, i.e. the descrip­tion of valen­cy pat­terns as worked out in the Leipzig Valen­cy Class­es Project (Val­PaL), and the assess­ment of a language’s basic valen­cy and its pos­si­ble ori­en­ta­tion. Notably, the Val­PaL does not pro­vide diachron­ic infor­ma­tion con­cern­ing the valen­cy pat­terns inves­ti­gat­ed: one of the aims of the book is to sup­ple­ment the avail­able data with data from his­tor­i­cal stages of lan­guages, in order to make it prof­itably exploitable for diachron­ic research. In addi­tion, new research on the diachrony of basic valen­cy and valen­cy alter­na­tions can deep­en our under­stand­ing of mech­a­nisms of lan­guage change and of the propen­si­ty of lan­guages or lan­guage fam­i­lies to exploit dif­fer­ent con­struc­tion­al pat­terns relat­ed to tran­si­tiv­i­ty.
