The Language of EU and Polish Judges

Investigating Textual Fit Through Corpus Methods

Series:

Dariusz Koźbiał

This book is an in-depth study of EU judicial language and its impact on the language of national judges. It is the first comprehensive study of the judicial variety of the Polish Eurolect. The book applies the intertextual relation of textual fit and corpora of EU and Polish judgments to empirically measure the linguistic distance between translations and non-translations. It analyzes both the level of genre macrostructure and the microstructure (lexis and grammar, formulaicity, terminology). This interdisciplinary monograph explores a distinct European, translation-shaped variety of judicial language which departs from the conventions of judicial Polish. The volume is essential reading for researchers in legal linguistics, legal translation and genre analysis.

The Perfect Storm

Critical Discussion of the Semantics of the Greek Perfect Tense Under Aspect Theory

Series:

Constantine R. Campbell, Buist M. Fanning and Stanley E. Porter

Nowhere are the chaotic debates surrounding contemporary aspect theory more heated than in discussions of the theory’s application to Hellenistic Greek, and especially its understanding of the semantics of the Greek perfect tense. This book is a distilled academic debate among three of the best-known scholars on the subject, each defending his own unique interpretation while engaging the other two. The Perfect Storm will prove an indispensable resource for any scholar seeking to write convincingly on the Greek perfect in the future.

Die Erfassung bildungssprachlicher Kompetenzen und akademischer Sprach-kompetenzen in der Fremd- oder Zweitsprache gewinnt in schulischen und universitären Kontexten zunehmend an Bedeutung. Dabei stehen die jeweiligen Akteure vor ähnlichen Fragestellungen und Herausforderungen: Was versteht man unter bildungssprachlicher Kompetenz und welche Aspekte davon sollen getestet werden? Welche Möglichkeiten der Operationalisierung gibt es? Welche Instrumente und Aufgabenformate eignen sich, um erforderliche Sprachkompetenzen abzubilden?
Der vorliegende Sammelband vereint elf Ansätze von deutschen und öster-reichischen WissenschaftlerInnen für unterschiedliche Bildungskontexte und Sprachen, wie z.B. English for Academic Purposes, Deutsch als Fremd- und Zweitsprache, CLIL, Russisch und Polnisch als Herkunftssprache. Die Beiträge präsentieren aktuelle Zugänge in Hinblick auf das Testen von Bildungssprache und akademischen Sprachkompetenzen und systematisieren bisherige Überlegungen aus den einzelnen Disziplinen.

Edited by José Luis Oncins Martínez

This book shows how corpus linguistics and discourse analysis can benefit from the cooperation with a variety of other language-related disciplines, such as cognitive linguistics, appraisal theory, corpus stylistics and cultural studies. From different perspectives, each chapter will contribute to the understanding of the importance of corpus linguistics as an outstanding tool for the study of language, both alone and in combination with other academic and scientific disciplines.

La sintaxis del español proporcionará a los estudiantes universitarios de gramática española, así como a aquellos cuya concentración es el español, una fundación sólida para los estudios más avanzados, como un Master o un Doctorado, a través de un acercamiento directo. Este libro también es fundamental para los estudiantes que se especializan en Pedagogía, sobre todo en el campo de la Escuela Secundaria. Finalmente, y para aquellos que no están en una carrera docente, este texto representa una fuente confiable para sus estudios de la lengua española.

El objetivo principal de esta edición es que el libro sea más accesible para los estudiantes. Para eso hemos destacado las principales dificultades que enfrentan cuando estudian el idioma español. Para orientarlos mejor, comenzamos con un "Capítulo preliminar I" sobre los signos diacríticos o los acentos escritos, por lo general, material particularmente difícil para los estudiantes. Ampliamos el "Capítulo preliminar II" agregando explicaciones más detalladas de todas las diferentes variantes que ocurren en el idioma español, como un estudio de cognados en español e inglés. Mejoramos todos los capítulos con explicaciones gramaticales más comprensibles. También agregamos ejercicios nuevos y más cortos a todos los capítulos. Además, añadimos una sección, "Resumen del capítulo", al final de cada uno que sintetiza el material estudiado. También incluimos en cada uno un "Repaso práctico final" que reúne las partes más importantes para que los estudiantes puedan ampliar sus conocimientos de una manera más fácil. Finalmente, también agregamos una composición a cada capítulo. El libro concluye con tres Autoexámenes, uno cada cuatro capítulos y un Apéndice sobre la morfología del sistema verbal español.

This book sheds new light on translation competence and its development. After reviewing recent theoretical and empirical perspectives, the author presents the methodology and results of one of few comprehensive, longitudinal, combined process/product studies of translation competence acquisition, which has cognitive and pedagogical implications. Carried out among translation students with varying levels of foreign language proficiency before and after their first 7.5 months of translator education, the study investigates translation product quality, the strategicness of the translation process, the strategicness of external resource use, and translation principles. It also examines perceived translation difficulty and quality as well as the impact of directionality and foreign language proficiency.

Politiker*innen als Figuren in der digitalen Mediengesellschaft

Ein diskurslinguistischer Untersuchungsrahmen

Series:

Lisa Blasch

Politiker*innen haben in digitalen Mediengesellschaften eine starke, zumeist visuelle und multimodale mediatisierte Präsenz. Nicht nur klassische Massenmedien und strategische PR-Teams lassen Politiker*innen als Figuren in den unterschiedlichsten Online- und Offline-Formaten, semiotischen Kodierungen, sozialen Typisierungen und diskursiven Frames auftreten. In der digital strukturierten Öffentlichkeit greifen auch Online-Aktivisten und Social-Media-User in die medialen Diskurswelten politischer Kommunikation ein. Auf der Basis einer metapragmatisch ausgerichteten Diskurslinguistik entwickelt dieses Buch einen transdisziplinären Konzept- und Kategorienrahmen für die systematische Analyse dieses komplexen Phänomenbereichs spätmoderner Politik.
