Abstract:

Written in German and Croatian appearing side-by-side, the book "Modalpartikeln: Deutsch im Vergleich mit dem Kroatischen und Englischen/Modalne čestice: njemački jezik u usporedbi s hrvatskim i engleskim" offers a systematic description of the meaning of German modal particles in comparison with synonymous particles and modal constructions in Croatian, as well as a selection of English translational equivalents. The book represents a novelty in the lexicography of both the German and Croatian language as it contains descriptions of particle meanings based on the context of their use. The descriptions take into account the type of sentence in which the particle occurs and the respective speech act. Modal particles are synsemantic words whose complex meanings depend on the specific context of their use. They express subjective aspects of the communicative interaction. All particle descriptions are corpus-based and exemplified by sentences and dialogues from written and spoken corpora of all three languages. Apart from offering a linguistic description the book also has the aim to support the acquisition of modal particles in advanced learners of German and Croatian as a foreign language. The CD-ROM comprises the content of the book in electronic form, audio dialogues spoken by native speakers as well as exercises designed for learning the function and use of modal particles in German and Croatian. English translational equivalents are listed as an additional help in the learning process since English is the first foreign language of the majority of speakers of German and Croatian as L1. The book is aimed at linguists, philologists, especially at specialists in German and Croatian studies, translators, teachers and advanced speakers of German and Croatian as foreign languages.
