Title: Das Konzept »Islam« [“Islam” as Concept]
Subtitle: Eine diskurslinguistische Untersuchung
Written By: Nina Kalwa
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/204621?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Sprache und Wissen 14
Description:

The notions of Islam that are prevalent in the public imagination are founded and shaped by public discourse itself. This study examines the process by which perceptions of Islam are constructed using the methods of lexical semantics, discourse analysis, and corpus linguistics. This specific combination of methods illustrates the unique textual and discursive potentials of contemporary linguistics.
