Book Information


Title: Nähe und Distanz im Kontext variationslinguistischer Forschung [Proximity and Distance in the Context of Research into Linguistic Variation]
Edited By: Vilmos Ágel
Mathilde Hennig
Series Title: Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 35

The terms ‘proximity’ and ‘distance’ signify conceptual characteristics of
orality and literacy. In that branch of linguistic research dealing with
linguistic variation, ‘proximity vs. distance’ is a central area of enquiry
along with fields such as dialectology, languages for specialist purposes
or text typology. The present volume examines commonalities and differences
along the topic areas of ‘proximity and diatopic variation,’ ‘proximity and
diachronic variation,’ ‘proximity and diaphasic variation’ and ‘proximity
and grammaticalisation.’
