Wer redet, hat noch lange nicht das Sagen. Phraseologismen in Werbetexten

Abstract: Copywriters often make use of popular phraseologisms, modify them, break grammatical conventions, as well as challenge lexical expectations and spelling rules. Phrasal expressions enrich advertisements making them more expressive. Due to the modifications, other interesting stylistic effects can be obtained, such as vividness, ambiguity, unconventionality, surprise, wit and humour.

This article aims at an analysis of the phraseological modifications in German advertising catchphrases in the Der Spiegel and Die Zeit weeklies in order to reflect on the boundaries between the occasional and usual contexts of the use of phraseologisms.

Based on the analysis of selected examples of advertising texts, phrasal expressions and their modifications will be presented, as well as their stylistic and pragmatic functions. Examples will be used of advertisements by vehicle manufacturers, insurance companies, banks and travel agencies.
