Series Title: narr studienbücher
Description:

Dieses Studienbuch betrachtet das komplexe Phänomen »deutscher Wortschatz«
aus verschiedenen inhaltlichen und methodischen Perspektiven. Anhand
zahlreicher Beispiele wird veranschaulicht, dass das Lexikon keine bloße
Anhäufung von Fakten,Merkmalen und Idiosynkrasien ist. Es wird gezeigt,
dass das richtige Verstehen und Bilden sowie die angemessene Verwendung
vonWörtern mit Regeln und Konventionen verknüpft ist. Das Studienbuch
stellt eine Verbindung zwischen den aktuellen wissenschaftlichen
Diskussionen zumWortschatz und dem tatsächlichen Wortwissen in
Sprachgebrauch und -lernen her. Es eignet sich für das Selbststudium
genauso wie als Grundlage für Lehrveranstaltungen zumWort und dem deutschen
Lexikon. Spezielle linguistische Vorkenntnisse werden nicht
vorausgesetzt.Jedes Kapitel enthält Aufgaben und weiterführende
Literaturangaben.
