The interest in computer-mediated communication (CMC) has vastly risen over the recent years. Nevertheless, crosscultural differences in CMC have received little attention so far, especially with regard to complaining behaviour. This book therefore contributes to this still unexplored research area by comparing British English and German complaints in CMC, precisely on eBay. The empirical study statistically analyses online complaints taken from the feedback forum of this online auction house and shows both similarities and differences in the way speakers of the two cultures formulate their online complaints. Additionally, the impact the specific online context may have on users’ speech act performance is reviewed. Given that cultural differences may lead to misunderstandings in cross-cultural electronic communicative situations, this book is not only of interest to different fields of pragmatics, but also to e-commerce and is hence of economic interest.

In Baldassare Castigliones 'Libro del Cortegiano' (1528), einem Bestseller der europäischen Renaissance, wird außerhalb des strikten Hofzeremoniells eine Gesprächsrunde inszeniert, in deren Rahmen die beteiligten Hofmänner, die 'cortigiani', vorrangig das Ziel verfolgen, die anderen Anwesenden durch Inhalt und Form ihrer jeweiligen Redebeiträge zu unterhalten und sich so ihres kultivierten Status zu versichern. Dazu bedienen sich die Gesprächsteilnehmer, so die hier vertretene These, bestimmter Redeakte, deren Typik auf der Grundlage der Sprechakttheorie Searlescher Prägung und relevanter Weiterentwicklungen dieses Ansatzes, die speziell die Historizität sprachlicher Handlungen in den Blick nehmen, analysiert wird: So bilden die zeitgenössischen höfischen Konversationsnormen hier die soziokulturelle Folie, um das Gelingen der Konversationsziele im 16. Jahrhundert und die prägende Wirkung dieses Dialogs im damaligen Europa zu begreifen, wozu die modernen Instrumentarien die angemessene Erkenntnismöglichkeit bieten.

Gesten verwendet jeder. Sogar Kinder entschlüsseln oft intuitiv, was sie bedeuten. Aber ist diese Bedeutung wirklich in allen Kulturen identisch? Muss Gestik bei einem Kulturwechsel neu erlernt oder lediglich angepasst werden? Und entstehen im interkulturellen Bereich vielleicht auch ganz neue Gesten? Daniela Marcantonio beantwortet diese Fragen systematisch auf Grundlage theoretischer Überlegungen und anhand einer umfangreichen empirischen Untersuchung im Übergangsfeld zwischen deutscher und italienischer Kultur. Sie zeigt, dass man Gesten zwar zusammen mit einer Sprache erlernt, dass ihre Anwendung aber bei Weitem nicht auf diese eine Kultur begrenzt ist.

Diktatur der Rhetorik oder Rhetorik der Diktatur

Mussolinis stolzgeschwellte Brust und imposante Haltung, Hitlers weit geöffneter Mund und drohender Zeigefinger gehören noch heute zum kollektiven Bild des italienischen und deutschen Diktators am Rednerpult. Pedrotti geht der Frage nach, wie und warum diese von Mussolini und Hitler angewandten körpersprachlichen rhetorischen Strategien auf die damalige Öffentlichkeit wirkten. Als Basis für die Untersuchung dienen Redesequenzen aus Filmaufnahmen jener Zeit, die der Autor hinsichtlich Gestik, Mimik und Kinesik analysiert. So wird deutlich, dass beide Diktatoren über personenspezifische wie auch ähnliche körpersprachliche Muster im je eigenen kulturellen Kontext rhetorischer Tradition verfügten. Im Vergleich der Forschungsergebnisse mit den Erwartungen und der rhetorischen Realität der Gegenwart zeigt sich eine Entwicklung der Redekultur, die durch wirkungsmächtige Medien wie Fernsehen und Internet stark beeinflusst wird.

The ‘Mixed Game Model’ represents a holistic theory of dialogue which starts from human beings’ competence-in-performance and describes how language is integrated in a general theory of human action and behaviour. Human beings are able to adapt to changing conditions and to pursue their interests by the integrated use of various communicative means, mainly verbal, perceptual and cognitive. The core unit is the dialogic action game or ‘the mixed game’ with human beings at the centre acting and reacting in cultural surroundings. The key to opening up the complex whole is human beings’ nature. The Mixed Game Model demonstrates how the different disciplines of the natural and social sciences and the humanities are mutually interconnected. After a detailed overview of the state of the art, the fundamentals of the theory are laid down. They include a typology of action games which ranges from minimal games to complex institutional games. The description is illustrated by analyses of authentic games.

Twenty-five years after the end of the Cold War, a new Cold War is being waged in our societies. During the Cold War a theoretical model of man was developed by economists and the military, an egotistical being interested only in his own benefit and in duping his opponents to achieve his ends: a modern homo oeconomicus. After his career in the Cold War ended, he was not scrapped but adapted to the needs of the twenty-first century. He became the ringmaster of a new era of information capitalism. He sought to read, control and influence thoughts; to predict, price and eliminate risks. Today stock-market trading is guided by him. He uses computer algorithms and Big Data to build up detailed pictures of our preferences and then suggest and sell goods to us. The model has become a self-fulfilling prophecy. We are no longer the masters of our own fate. The Game of Life runs without us. Schirrmacher traces the progress of this extreme rationalization of social life from the Cold War games of the 1950s Rand Corporation to the stock-market trading techniques that brought about the financial crash of 2008, showing how these developments were interwoven with the rise of game theory, rational choice theory and neoliberal economics. The state and politics increasingly submitted themselves to the logic of computerized game theory and an economistic view of the world, evading real decision-making in the process. In this brave new world individuals, alone in front of their computers, may think they are constructing a reality of their own choosing, but in fact they are being manipulated all along by others who are setting the rules of the game. This international bestseller by one of Germany?s most distinguished journalists is a powerful indictment of a way of thinking that has become pervasive and threatens to undermine not only parliaments and constitutions but also the sovereignty of the individual to be the person he or she wants to be.

The now-classic Metaphors We Live By changed our understanding of metaphor and its role in language and the mind. Metaphor, the authors explain, is a fundamental mechanism of mind, one that allows us to use what we know about our physical and social experience to provide understanding of countless other subjects. Because such metaphors structure our most basic understandings of our experience, they are "metaphors we live by"—metaphors that can shape our perceptions and actions without our ever noticing them. In this updated edition of Lakoff and Johnson's influential book, the authors supply an afterword surveying how their theory of metaphor has developed within the cognitive sciences to become central to the contemporary understanding of how we think and how we express our thoughts in language.

Tory Sullivan struggles with the demands of motherhood and her desire for a career. An aspiring writer, she wonders whether she'll ever be able to develop her talent while raising two young children. But perhaps the problem isn't a matter of time, but of Tory. Cathy Flaherty is rediscovering the grins and groans of the dating game. The spunky single mother of three teenagers, she's also learning the urgency of instilling sound values in her children as they attend public school. Sylvia Bryan is an empty-nester. Now that her children are gone, she struggles with a gnawing lack of meaning. Her husband, Harry, wants to become a medical missionary. But for Sylvia, the best part of life seems like nothing but a memory. Brenda Dodd faces an uncertain future. Her nine-year-old son is getting sicker, and there seems to be nothing they can do. It is every mother's nightmare -- a child who will die unless he receives a heart transplant. As the women of Cedar Circle band together to save a dying child, they learn that each moment is precious in every season under the heaven. Taking the best and worst of human circumstances -- the tender moments, the laughter, the tragedies, and the triumphs -- Beverly LaHaye and Terri Blackstock weave from them a poignant, warmly human novel. Gently uncovering the inner struggles, stresses, and joys that surface among neighbors living in a quiet cul-de-sac, the authors show us the power of ordinary lives being knit into a strong, many-textured fabric of family and friendships. Seasons Under Heaven depicts the deepest emotions of a woman's heart, and those circumstances, both thrilling and tragic, that test and strengthen Christian faith.

This rich, wide-ranging book explores Italy's national film style by relating it closely to politics and to the historicist thought of Croce, Gentile, and Gramsci. Here is a new kind of film history--a nonlinear, intertextual approach that confronts the total story of the growth of a national cinema while challenging the traditional formats of general histories and period studies. Examining Italian silent films of the fascist era through neorealism to modernist filmmaking after May 1968, Angela Dalle Vacche reveals opera and the commedia dell'arte to be the strongest influences. As she presents the whole history of Italian cinema from the standpoint of a dialectic between these two styles, she offers brilliant interpretations of individual films. The "body in the mirror" is the national self-image on the screen, which changes shape in response to historical and political context. To discover how the nation represents, understands, and recognizes this fictional "body," Dalle Vacche discusses changes in the strongest parameters of Italian cinema: allegory, spectacle, body, history, unity, and continuity. In her hands these concepts yield a wealth of insights for film scholars, art historians, political scientists, and those concerned with cultural studies in general, as well as for other educated readers interested in Italian cinema.
