Title: Chunks für DaF
Written By: Brigitte Handwerker
Karin Madlener
Series Title: Perspektiven Deutsch als Fremdsprache
Description:

This volume propagates chunking as a means of developing lexico-grammatical
competence. It reviews in the first part the theoretical foundations
(Chunks, Input Processing, Processing Instruction, Construction Grammar)
and empirical results which influenced the compilation of the learning
environment on the DVD which accompanies the book. The second part
introduces the contents and structure of the learning environment and
discusses its use as a learning tool on the one and as a research tool
(through its e-learning-protocol features) on the other hand (including a
first tentative survey of tests already made). Subject matter of the
learning environment are German constructions with the auxiliary sein and a
(past or present) participle on the level of constructions, psych effect
verbs ("frighten verbs") serve as verbal fillers (a choice which allows to
emphasise the interaction between lexical meaning and morphosyntactic
structure). The DVD contains videos, photo sequences and animations with a
massive dose of possible chunks, and it guides the student to further
analysis by providing explicit knowledge bases in the form of lexical
entries, construction patterns, grammatical explanations, and background
texts.

Explanatory texts on the DVD are available in both German and English.
