Series Title: Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 289
Description:

The collective volume brings together the linguistic and didactic findings on the
structure and acquisition of the German writing system. Based on current
research on the German written language it is shown that its structures can be
systematically described in the core area. The book discusses whether these
insights can be used for didactic conceptions on written language acquisition.
Concrete examples from German instruction illustrate the acquisition problems
and discuss effective learning measures based on learning by discovery.
