Download E-books Die Deutschen schreien. Beobachtungen von einem, der aus dem Land des Lächelns kam. PDF

By Florian Coulmas

Aus der Amazon.de-Redaktion

Es ist zum Heulen: 20 Jahre hat Florian Coulmas im Land des Lächelns verbracht, und als er nach Deutschland zurückkommt, versteht er die Welt nicht mehr. Alles ist ihm plötzlich fremd geworden unter seinesgleichen, Freundlichkeit hat sich in Unverschämtheit, Höflichkeit in Ignoranz verwandelt: "Die Deutschen nörgeln. Oder sie belehren. Und niemand weiß mehr sicher, used to be sich 'schickt'."

Was einer, der aus dem Reich der Mitte kam und das Fürchten lernte, über seine Rückkehr und seine Artgenossen in der Heimat zu berichten weiß, beschreibt der Hamburger Kulturwissenschaftler mit Witz und Charme. Eine Anti-Papalangi, und eine paintings Ethnografie des eigenen Landes -- mal komisch, mal melancholisch, mal bass erstaunt, immer aber überaus lesenswert. --Hans Klott

Roger Brown has written the main exhaustive and looking out research but undertaken of the early levels of grammatical buildings and the meanings they impart.

The 5 phases of linguistic improvement Brown establishes are measured now not by means of chronological age-since young children range tremendously within the velocity at which their speech develops--but via suggest size of utterance. This quantity treats the 1st phases.

level I is the brink of syntax, while young ones start to mix phrases to make sentences. those sentences, Brown exhibits, are continually restricted to an identical small set of semantic family: nomination, recurrence, disappearance, attribution, ownership, service provider, and some others.

level II is worried with the modulations of uncomplicated structural meanings--modulations for quantity, time, point, specificity--through the sluggish acquisition of grammatical morphemes corresponding to inflections, prepositions, articles, and case markers. Fourteen morphemes are studied intensive and it's proven that the order in their acquisition is sort of exact throughout childrens and is expected through their relative semantic and grammatical complexity.
