Download e-book for kindle: Einführung in die slavischen Sprachen. Mit einer Einführung by Peter Rehder

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.

Example text

No doubt this process started in 1932 with the war between Bolivia and Paraguay, when the way of life of this people was seriously affected and, at the same time, they entered a state of poverty they still cannot abandon. From that moment the sedentarization forced by the war, the evangelization and the recent and growing adoption of the Spanish language with the consequent and imminent abandonment of the mother tongue came one after the other. 5. Grammatical sketch Tapiete is a head marking language that mainly encodes inflectional information through suffixation (1).

The phonological word in Tapiete includes a lexical root and the clitics associated to it subject to rules of stress assignment. Tapiete has 15 consonants and 12 vowels, six oral and six nasal.

1. Tapiete and bilingual education The children go to ‘Misión Los Tapiete’ school, which is located in Padre Pedro Alley, inside the Tapiete community. This school is also attended by neighboring Criollos children. 700 children attend the school, 108 of them –that is16% - come from ‘Misión Tapiete’. Two bilingual assistants have worked in that school for seven years now, where they are in charge of the children of the community who attend EGB 1. The real problems Tapiete bilingual assistants have to face are: a lack of linguistic (alphabet, grammar and so on) and pedagogical (such as teaching materials) tools, which are necessary in carrying out this kind of program.
