Book Information


Title: Adjektivderivation in der Urkundensprache des 13. Jahrhunderts [Adjective Derivation in the Language of Documents from the 13th Century]
Written By: Christine Ganslmayer
Series Title: De Gruyter Studia Linguistica Germanica 97

The study originates from the Erlangen research project on word formation in the
Middle High German language of documents from the 13th century. It examines
in detail the adjective derivation in the texts of the “Corpus of Old German
original documents dating to the year 1300” and thus closes a gap in the
research, as word formation in German of the High Middle Ages has been little
studied to date. This historical period is especially interesting for research
purposes because during this period, morphological structures were formed
which later became permanently established in New High German.
