Woerter im Grenzbereich von Lexikon und Grammatik im Serbokroatischen
SNJEZANA KORDIC
Westfaelische Wilhelms-Universitaet Muenster

Um einen Beitrag zur serbokrotistischen Lexikographie und
Grammatikschreibung zu leisten, werden in diesem Buch syntakti-sche,
seman-ti-sche, pragmatische und lexikogra-phische Aspek-te einiger
Pronomen, Partikeln, Kon-junktionen und Verben in der modernen
serbokroatischen Sprache beschrieben. Die Klasse solcher -
verschiedenen Wortarten angehoerenden - Einheiten, die im Sprachsystem
eine Position zwischen volllexikalischen Woertern und
Funktionswoertern einnehmen, umfasst noch weitere Woerter - fuer
dieses Buch sind nur diejenigen unter ihnen ausgesucht worden, zu
denen die Woerterbuecher und Grammatiken des Serbokroatischen aeu�erst
mangelhafte oder sogar keine Beschreibung bieten. Die gegenwaertige
Situation zu ueberwinden, waere um so wichtiger, als jedes zehnte Wort
im Sprachgebrauch eines dieser Woerter ist.

Die ersten drei Kapitel beschaeftigen sich mit den semantischen,
grammatischen und pragmatischen Eigenschaften der Personalpronomen
ja/ti/on usw. 'ich/du/er', mit dem Hoef-lichkeitsausdruck durch das
Personalpronomen Vi 'Sie' und mit dem Verallgemeinerungsaus-druck
durch das pronominalisierte Substantiv covjek 'man'. Die naechsten
drei Kapitel sind den Demonstrativ-pronomen ovaj/taj/onaj
'dieser/jener', den Demonstrativwoertern evo/eto/eno 'sieh da' und der
zusammengesetzten Konjunktion tim vis^e s^to 'um so mehr/weniger als'
gewidmet. In den letzten zwei Kapiteln geht es um die Verben imati
'haben', biti 'sein' und trebati 'brauchen/sollen'. Am Ende des
jeweiligen Kapitels wird ein Modell zur grammati-schen und
lexikographischen Beschreibung der behandelten Woerter
vorgeschlagen. Die be-treffenden Spracheinhei-ten des
Serbokroati-schen werden im Buch verschiedentlich mit ent-sprechen-den
Einheiten anderer slavischen Sprachen vergli-chen.

Message 2: Chinese Linguistics: Yunnanese and Kunming Chinese by M. C. Gui

Yunnanese and Kunming Chinese:
A Study of the Language Communities, the Phonological Systems, and the
Phonological Developments

MING CHAO GUI
The University of Oklahoma, Norman

This is a interdisciplinary study composed of extensive research and
detailed analyses of Yunnanese, a Southwestern Mandarin language
spoken in Yunnan, China, and Kunming Chinese--one of its major
varieties spoken in the city of Kunming. The research work is
conducted in three major areas: the language communities, the
phonological systems, and the phonological developments in the past
six decades. The language communities are discussed from the
perspectives of ethnology, sociolinguistics, and dialectology,
covering such aspects as history of the civilization of Yunnan and
Kunming, the ethnographical and ethno-historical account for the
twenty-four ethnic groups inhabiting in Yunnan province, the
demographic statistics of these groups, and dialect geography of
Yunnanese and its varieties, as well as the members of Southwestern
Mandarin subgroup. A language survey has been conducted in some
detail on the varieties of Yunnanese represented by one hundred and
thirty-five locations with a comparative study of their segmental and
suprasegmental structures. A comparative study on the language data
representing two different varieties of Kunming Chinese spoken in two
different periods of time, i.e., in 1940s and in 1990s, discloses the
striking sound changes undergone by this dialect. Analyses of tone
sandhi in autosegmental and metrical framework have revealed the edge
sensitive characteristic of its tone system, as well as the constrains
of tone sandhi imposed by syntactic structure and lexical category.
