Read e-book online Einführung in die slavischen Sprachen. Mit einer Einführung PDF

Eine Einführung in die slavischen Sprachen zu versuchen, ist
heutzutage - wie jeder Slavist weiß - ein riskantes Unterfangen, und zwar
aus mehreren Gründen: Einmal ist es durch die fortgeschrittene
Spezialisierung einem Einzelnen kaum mehr möglich, auf allen
betroffenen slavistischen Arbeitsgebieten gleichermaßen kompetent zu sein,
zum anderen dürfte unter Slavisten eine Einigung darüber schwer zu
erreichen sein, used to be in eine solche Einführung notwendigerweise
gehörte und wie es darzustellen sei, und schließlich ist der Begriff 'slavi-
sche Sprachen' zumindest an den Rändern unscharf [. .. ] von
vorwiegend politisch bestimmten Argumentationen der Gegenwart um den
sprachlichen prestige des Makedonischen oder von Bestrebungen einiger,
Kroatisch und Serbisch als zwei eigenständige Literatursprachen zu
reklamieren, einmal abgesehen. Trotz dieser vielfältigen und
komplizierten Fragen ist dennoch [. .. ] aus der Praxis slavistischer Lehre
unübersehbar, daß eine solche überblickartige, erste Einführung für Slavistik-
Studenten im Grundstudium und auch für im weiteren Sinn an den
slavischen Sprachen Interessierte zumindest im deutschsprachigen Raum
seit längerem ein Desiderat ist.

Sample text

Finally, the importance of prototypicality can be derived from the fact that different nuances play a central role within the core of each concept, whereas those nuances are not particularly important within the corresponding group in the other concept. Thus, the destruction of buildings and other human constructions is prominent within the material use ofvernielen, but is only rarely present within the material group of vernietigen. Within the structure vernielen as a whole, demolishing buildings is the single most frequently represented kind of usage, but within the structure of vernietigen, it is merely one among many equally important nuances of the material set of applications.

1. Hypotheses about the sources of prototypicality Prototype theory is as it were part of the prototypical core of the cognitive paradigm in semantics, particularly in lexical semantics. I think it is safe to say that it is by now quite obvious that gradience and salience are among the linguistically relevant aspects of semantic structure. One need only recall the early experimental work by Rosch (1973) and Labov (1973) to appreciate 28 Prototypicality and salience the importance of gradualness and vagueness for the adequate description of word meaning.

The best way to study both words is to turn to the Woordenboek der Nederlandsche Taal (hence WNT), the major dictionary of Dutch that covers the period from 1500 up to 1920 and that, by the way, is still uncompleted after about a century of editorial work. This dictionary is being com- 30 Prototypicality and salience piled on the basis of a huge corpus of quotations; there are as yet no equally representative corpora for contemporary Dutch, so that it is rather more difficult to get an adequate picture of twentieth-century usage than it is to study the semantic history of the vocabulary of Dutch.
