The study also highlights the constructs of current linguistic theory, arguing for distinctive features and the notion 'onset' and against some of the claims of Optimality Theory and Usage-based accounts.
The importance of Henk Zeevat's new monograph cannot be overstated. [...] I recommend it to anyone who combines interests in language, logic, and computation [...]. David Beaver, University of Texas at Austin
Das konfessionelle Flugblatt 1563–1580 [The Religious Pamphlet, 1563–1580]
Eine Studie zur historischen Semiotik und Textanalyse
The written genre of the religious pamphlet stands out as a deeply characteristic form of public communication in the early modern period, not least on account of its inseparable combination of language and images. This study undertakes an analysis of semiotically complex religious pamphlets from the late 16th century, thereby making a contribution to research in linguistic history that is culturally oriented. In the process, it illustrates the opportunities for using frame semantics to analyze both verbal and visual texts.
