Collocations are frequently occurring combinations of words with a semantic motivation behind the link (e.g. brush teeth, dark night, high forehead etc.). This innovative dictionary registers for each base-word all the collocators possible in German, together, where appropriate, with their meanings and instances of their use. This productive dictionary is of equal value for non-native speakers and for native-speakers who wish to express themselves in a more precise and differentiated manner. In addition, it provides a unique repository of examples for linguistic research.

This study explores discourse deixis, a topic which has thus far received little attention in empirical research. Discourse deixis means the reference to parts or aspects of the ongoing discourse and/or text. Common examples are "see above" or "as I mentioned before". The approach of this study is corpus-based, that is, it identifies and classifies all discourse-deictic references in the corpora of various kinds of texts. From the evidence thus gained a new theory of discourse deixis is derived.
