Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Synonyme unter dem Mikroskop
Subtitle: Eine korpuslinguistische Studie
Written By: Vera Marková
URL: http://www.narr-shop.de/index.php/synonyme-unter-dem-mikroskop.html
Series Title: Korpuslinguistik und Interdisziplinäre Perspektiven auf Sprache - Corpus linguistics and Interdisciplinary perspectives on language (CLIP)

Bedeuten zwei Synonyme immer das Gleiche? Wie erkennt man, wann das eine
oder das andere Wort angebracht ist? Inwieweit sind Synonyme situations-
und kontextgebunden? Sind wir bei der Wahl eines Synonyms frei oder an
eingefahrene Muster gebunden? Genügen Synonymwörter -bücher bei der Wahl
eines treffenden Wortes? Das vorliegende Buch versucht, auf diese und
andere Fragen Antworten zu geben. Untersuchungen zur Synonymie auf Basis
des Deutschen Referenzkorpus rücken dabei Sprachwissenschaft durch eine
korpusgeleitete Methodik in die Nähe naturwissenschaftlicher Empirie. Drei
adjektivische Synonympaare werden einer filigranen Analyse unterzogen, um
ihre Okkurrenz und Verbindbarkeit mit anderen Wörtern zu ergründen.
