Peter Rehder's 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

Since each uttered the very same sentence, then on at least one of these two occasions, that which was said was not the sentence, and so on at least one of these two occasions, it was something other than the sentence that was said either to be true or to be false. This argument is commonly invoked by Propositionalists. Page 32 Note that in each of the above arguments it was assumed that the property x was said to possess was the same property as the property y was said to lack. However, all (6) establishes is a certain connection between objects and properties so that in (I), for example, it cannot be both that the same thing was viewed each time and also that the property the thing viewed the first time was said to possess was the same property as the property said to be lacked by the thing viewed the second time.

They would both be false. So, we can regard (36) as having been constructed by inserting 'Abraham Lincoln' in place of x in the function expression (37) 'x has red hair', and (37), then, stands for (38) x has red hair, a function that maps objects to truth-values. 12 A function like (38) is a first-level function, one that takes objects as arguments. Frege also identified second-level functions, functions that take first-level functions as arguments, and even higher-level functions. Frege regarded the quantifiers as higher-level functions.

29) stands for Mary Todd Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln's wife. If we replace 'Abraham Lincoln' in (29) by 'George Washington', we get (30) 'George Washington's wife', 40 Grammar in Early Twentieth-Century Philosophy Grammar in Early Twentieth-Century Philosophy 41 which stands for Martha, George Washington's wife. g. 'the President of the United States in 1862', the resultant complex expression would stand for the same person as does (29), namely, Mary Todd Lincoln. Hence, we can regard each of (29) and (30) as having been constructed from the function expression (31) 'x's wife' by inserting the appropriate name for x; and (31), then, stands for (32) x's wife, a function that maps a person to his wife.
