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.

Title: Toilettengraffiti
Subtitle: Unterschiedliche Kommunikationsverhalten von Männern und Frauen
Written By: Christiane Stumpf
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?262603
Series Title: Wissen - Kompetenz - Text
Description:

Kommunikation in den unterschiedlichsten Realisierungsformen ist unser täglicher Begleiter. Selbst an den intimsten Orten kommunizieren Menschen miteinander. Einer dieser Orte ist die Toilettenkabine. Unbeobachtet und ohne sich zu kennen treten Männer und Frauen durch Toilettengraffiti an der Wand in Kontakt mit dem eigenen Geschlecht. Anhand einer Korpusanalyse werden in dieser Arbeit zentrale Fragestellungen zum «Nebenbeimedium» Graffiti untersucht: Wie unterscheidet sich das Kommunikationsverhalten der Geschlechter beim Schreiben an der Kabinenwand? Hat die Besonderheit des Ortes Einfluss auf die Textgestaltung und den Umgang miteinander? Welche unterschiedliche Bedeutung hat die Toilettenwand als Kommunikationsmedium für Männer und Frauen?
