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: Polysemie als Verfahren lexikalischer Motivation
Subtitle: Theorie und Empirie am Beispiel von Metonymie und Metapher im Französischen und Italienischen
Written By: Daniela Marzo
URL: http://www.narr-shop.de/index.php/polysemie-als-verfahren-lexikalischer-motivation.html
Series Title: Tübinger Beiträge zur Linguistik (TBL), Vol. 539
Description:

Vor dem Hintergrund der Kognitiven Linguistik wird sowohl theoretisch als auch empirisch fundiert die verbreitete Ansicht widerlegt, Polysemie sei antiikonisch. Am Beispiel metonymie- und metaphernbasierter Polysemie im Französischen und Italienischen wird demonstriert, dass Polysemie Ikonizität und Motivation im Lexikon nicht nur maßgeblich fördert, sondern die Art der Polysemie eines Wortes auch die Art seiner formalen Motivierbarkeit determiniert. Auf dieser Grundlage wird ein neuartiges Modell graduierter lexikalischer Transparenz entworfen, das erstmals die Interaktion der formalen und der semantischen Dimension derselben berücksichtigt.
