Das Wortfeld des Vergleichens in der deutschen Wissenschaftssprache am Beispiel der kontrastiven Linguistik
Abstract This research paper deals with the field of comparison in German academic discourse. Despite the fact that the lexical field theory is often criticized in contemporary linguistics, the purpose of the research presented in this paper is to outline the aspects of field theory and to illustrate them with the instances found in the corpus material. First, the paper briefly introduces the current state of contrastive research in German academic discourse. The presentation includes both the most important objects of contemporary contrastive research and the languages that German is compared with. Second, points of criticism of the field theory are presented and a new conception of the lexical field theory is given. The empirical part presents the lexical means of comparison found in the corpus material and the results of their analysis. The paper is concluded by a summary of results and further research prospects.
Keywords: Contrastive linguistics, lexicology, field theory, german academic discourse, comparison
