How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.
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.
