Book Information

   

Title: Biomedizin Als Sprachliche Kontroverse (Biomedicine as a Linguistic Controversy)
Subtitle: Die Thematisierung von Sprache im öffentlichen Diskurs zur Gendiagnostik
Written By: Silke Domasch
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/rs/bookSingle.cfm?id=IS-9783110193626-1&l=E
Series Title: Sprache und Wissen 1
Description:

The German verbs 'verwerfen', 'nicht implantieren' or 'abtöten' have the
same denotations when used in reference to dealing with
artificially-inseminated embryos; however, the meanings of these words are
respectively different. The book examines, against the background of the
debate about the introduction of pre-implantation diagnostics in Germany,
the role of linguistic naming - so-called thematizations - in the public
sphere. The study shows that these thematizations not only reflect
linguistic controversy, but at the same time, precisely mirror the current
societal debates.
