The authors illustrate how cross-textual variable analysis and variation analysis advance research on Biblical Hebrew and correct theories based on extra-linguistic assumptions, intuitions, and ideologies by focusing on variation of forms/uses in the Masoretic text and variation between the Masoretic text and other textual traditions. Features: A unique approach that examines the nature of the sources and the description of their language together Extensive bibliography for further research Tables of linguistic variables and parallels

Dieses Buch widmet sich der diachronen Erforschung der intendierten Standardsprache in ausgewahlten Regionen des deutschen Sprachraumes. Seine Konzeption als real-time-Studie ueber 40 Jahre erlaubt einen kontrastiven Blick auf die sprachlichen Veranderungen im Verlaufe des 20. Jahrhunderts. Datengrundlage sind die sprachlichen Auaerungen von Gemeinderatsmitgliedern. Deren regionalsprachliche Pragungen sind Gegenstand der Arbeit. Sprachgeographisch fokussiert die Untersuchung die im Rheinfrankischen gelegene Stadt Mainz, als geographischer Referenzpunkt dient das nordniederdeutsche Neumuenster. Durch einen eng verwobenen Komplex unterschiedlicher Analyseinstrumente wird in Mainz auf phonetisch-phonologischer Ebene eine deutliche diachrone Annaherung an die Sprechweise von Nachrichtensprechern nachgewiesen, der eine diachrone Konstanz in Neumuenster gegenuebersteht. Es werden nicht nur Zusammenhange der linguistischen Ergebnisse mit sozialen und attitudinalen Daten expliziert, sondern es werden zusatzlich die implikativen Beziehungen typischer sprachlicher Muster belegt und in eine Abbauhierarchie eingeordnet. Die Verwendung verschiedener methodischer Zugange ermoglicht eine eingehende Interpretation der linguistischen und metalinguistischen Ergebnisse und liefert auch eine Prognose zukuenftiger Sprachentwicklung. "ueberzeugenda" Jahrbuch der ungarischen Germanisten.

This study is the first to undertake a detailed appreciation of the much-lauded printing language employed at Günther Zainer's Augsburg printing shop. The new findings are the result of an unprecedented excerpting method that takes account of the hitherto neglected role played by the sequence of different typesetters. A comparison with other contemporaneous written idioms in Augsburg gives even greater definition to the account of the early stages of the printing idiom in Augsburg. This approach provides a potential model for similar investigations at other printing locations.

Norse-derived Vocabulary in late Old English Texts

This book focuses on the Norse-derived vocabulary in the works of Archbishop Wulfstan II of York (d. 1023). A considerable advantage derives from studying Wulfstan's compositions because, unlike most Old English texts, they are closely dateable and, to a certain extent, localizable. Thus, they offer excellent material for the examination of the process of integration and accommodation of Norse-derived vocabulary in Old English. After establishing the list of terms which can be accepted to be Norse-derived, this book analyses their relations with their native synonyms, both from a semantic and a stylistic point of view, and their inclusion in the word-formation processes to which Wulfstan submitted his vocabulary, native and borrowed alike. The information derived from this approach is used to explore the possible reasons for the archbishop's selection of the borrowed terms and the impact which his lexical practices had on contemporary and later English writers.

Eine natürliche Sprache ist eine spontane Ordnung; dabei ist sie weder Naturphänomen noch Artefakt, sondern ein Phänomen der dritten Art. Ihr gegenwärtiger Zustand ist - von wenigen Ausnahmen abgesehen - unbeabsichtigter, unreflektierter Nebeneffekt von Wahlhandlungen der einzelnen Sprecher im Zuge ihrer kommunikativen Bemühungen. Sprachwandel ist damit ein prototypisches Beispiel soziokultureller Evolution. Die Rekonstruktion des Wandels ist ein zentraler Baustein einer erklärenden Theorie eines Sprachzustandes. Der ihr adäquate Modus ist die Erklärung mittels der unsichtbaren Hand. "The book is a singulary good one; ... It will take some effort to surpass it." Studies in Language

Compound Words in Spanish

This is the first book devoted entirely to the history of compound words in Spanish. Based on data obtained from Spanish dictionaries and databases of the past thousand years, it documents the evolution of the major compounding patterns of the language. It analyzes the structural, semantic, and orthographic features of each compound type, and also provides a description of its Latin antecedents, early attestations, and relative frequency and productivity over the centuries. The combination of qualitative and quantitative data shows that although most compound types have survived, they have undergone changes in word order and relative frequency. Moreover, the book shows that the evolution of compounding in Spanish may be accounted for by processes of language acquisition in children. This book, which includes all the data in chronological and alphabetical order, will be a valuable resource for morphologists, Romance linguists, and historical linguists more generally.

Through his analysis of selected major developments in the history of English, Jeremy Smith argues that the history of the language can only be understood from a dynamic perspective. He proposes that internal linguistic mechanisms for language change cannot be meaningfully explained in isolation or without reference to external linguistic factors. Smith provides the reader with an accessible synthesis of recent developments in English historical linguistics. His book: Looks at the theory and methodology of linguistic historiography . Considers the major changes in writing systems, pronunciation and grammar. Provides examples of these changes, such as the standardisation of spellings and accent and the origins of the Great Vowel Shift Focuses on the origins of two non-standard varieties; eighteenth century Scots and twentieth century British Black English.This book makes fascinating reading for students of English Historical linguistics, and is an original, important and above all, lively contribution to the field.
