Einführung in die slavischen Sprachen. Mit einer Einführung by Peter Rehder 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, was once 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

Such a list will assist the user to utilise the data distribution of the dictionary to the full. . Different types of lemmata Prior to the compilation of a dictionary the lexicographer has to devise a dictionary plan in which, among other things, criteria are laid down for the selection of lexical items to be included and treated in the dictionary. These items are entered into the macrostructure as lemma signs and they become the guiding elements of the dictionary articles. The macrostructure of any general dictionary (both monolingual and bilingual) or dictionary dealing with a language for special purposes (LSP) has to reflect that section of the lexicon of the language relevant to the scope of the dictionary.

In general dictionaries, synopsis articles often present the treatment of a lemma sign functioning as the superordinate of a semantic field with the different hyponyms of the semantic field included as lemma signs of single articles in the dictionary. The synopsis article includes data, which is also relevant to the single articles, and these single articles contain a cross-reference entry guiding the user to the relevant synopsis article. In a dictionary which contains synopsis articles an optimal awareness of and access to these articles could be achieved by employing an outer text which contains an alphabetical list of all those lemmata featuring as guiding elements of synopsis articles.

By contrast, the systems that are used for giving grammatical information about verb constructions in these dictionaries do not seem to lead to different results (Bogaards & van der Kloot 2001), but explicit grammatical information as well as examples help different groups of learners better in writing correct sentences than traditional grammar codes or grammatical indications that can be found in some types of definitions (Bogaards & van der Kloot 2002). As to the last box of the model, several studies have been carried out concerning the success of dictionary look-ups.
