This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."
Substantivdetermination im Deutschen und im Ungarischen [Substantive Determination in German and Hungarian: A Contrastive Typological Linguistic Analysis]
DE GRUYTER AKADEMIE FORSCHUNG Konvergenz und Divergenz 2
This study examines the issue of substantive determination in German and Hungarian from a perspective that contrasts typologies. Starting from the semantic-pragmatic functions of the determinative, the author describes its use in these two languages as an expression of definiteness, indefiniteness, and genericity.
