Series Title: Tübinger Beiträge zur Linguistik (TBL), 499
Description:

Die Festschrift zum 65. Geburtstag von Elmar Ternes enthält Beiträge von
Kollegen und ehemaligen Schülern zu Themen aus Phonetik, Phonologie,
Morphologie, Lexik und Syntax, die historisch-vergleichend oder deskriptiv
betrachtet werden. Die Bandbreite der Aufsätze erstreckt sich von
keltischen und germanischen Sprachen und Dialekten - v.a. zum Deutschen -
über andere europäische und asiatische bis hin zu afrikanischen Sprachen.
Auch soziolinguistische Aspekte und die Metrik werden behandelt. Die in
diesem Band enthaltene Sammlung spiegelt nicht nur einen großen Teil der
wissenschaftlichen Interessen des Jubilars wieder, sondern zeigt auch die
Vielfalt der phonetischen Forschungsgebiete und die Stellung der Phonetik
als typischer Grenzwissenschaft mit ihren Verbindungen zu benachbarten
Bereichen.
