Download e-book for iPad: Informationsstrukturierung in chinesischen und deutschen by Jing Jin

By Jing Jin

Die unterschiedliche Informationsstrukturierung chinesischer und deutscher Texte bildet den Ausgangspunkt dieser Untersuchung. Während in der deutschen Kultur eine gewisse 'Direktheit' in der Themenentfaltung erwartet wird, wird in der chinesischen Kultur in ähnlichen Situationen eine stärkere 'Indirektheit' verlangt.
In der Übersetzungspraxis wird diesen Unterschieden bis jetzt leider immer noch zu wenig Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt. Die meisten deutschsprachigen Übersetzungen chinesischer induktiver Texte sind hinsichtlich der Informationsstruktur ausgangstextnahe Übersetzungen.
In dieser Arbeit wird zum ersten Mal die Problematik der unterschiedlichen Textorganisation von chinesischen und deutschen Firmen-Selbstdarstellungen im web aus der Perspektive der Übersetzungswissenschaft diskutiert. Ihre Ergebnisse können auch für die Untersuchung der Übersetzungsprobleme chinesischer induktiv strukturierter Texte in andere westliche Sprachen, deren Textorganisation deduktiv ist, von Nutzen sein.

Download e-book for kindle: Globalesisch, oder was?: Ein Plädoyer für Europas Sprachen by Jürgen Trabant

By Jürgen Trabant

Derzeit findet in Europa, vor allem in Deutschland, eine colossal Kampagne zugunsten des globalen Englisch, des Globalesischen, statt: Nachdem Wirtschaft und Wissenschaft sich schon seit längerem sprachlich globalisiert haben, raten nun Sozialwissenschaftler und Philosophen, Bundespräsidenten und ehemalige Bundeskanzler dem Land und Europa dringend, fleißig Englisch zu lernen, um die vielen Sprachen Europas, diese Hindernisse der Verständigung, aus dem Weg zu räumen.
Die babylonische Sprachverwirrung Europas soll endlich in einem globalesischen Paradies überwunden werden. Europäische Einheit und soziale Gerechtigkeit würden durch sprachliche Vereinheitlichung befördert. Diese Kampagne ist völlig überflüssig, weil die wohltätige Wirkung globaler Kommunikation durch das globale Englisch von niemandem bezweifelt wird und weil die Europäer ohnehin fleißig Globalesisch lernen. Das ist einerseits eine erfreuliche Entwicklung, gefährdet aber die anderen Sprachen der europäischen Nationen in vielfacher Hinsicht. Nötig ist daher eine Aktivität zugunsten der vielen europäischen Sprachen, die deren Leistung und Bedeutung hervorhebt und für ihre Bewahrung und Entwicklung eintritt. Dazu muss guy aber eine andere Auffassung von Sprache haben als die bloß instrumentell kommunikative. guy muss wieder verstehen lernen, dass Sprache auch ein kognitives device ist, nämlich der wichtigste Weg des Menschen zur Erfassung der Welt. Indem er die geistige, aber auch kulturelle und politische Bedeutung der Sprachen betont, plädiert Trabant angesichts des drohenden globalesischen Monolinguismus für eine echt verstandene europäische Mehrsprachigkeit.

Introduction to Didascalic Semiotics: A Treatise on - download pdf or read online

By Yehia Abd El Azeem

examine Paper (postgraduate) from the 12 months 2013 within the topic Speech technology / Linguistics, grade: sixty seven, collage of Salford, language: English, summary: via the advantage of an experimental non-fictive interjection in didascalia, essentially as a meta-textual liberation from narrative Drama (scripts learn instead of played) and that is in as a result of be tackled during this essay on a verge of feedback; rhetorical inference, that that's intrinsic in the perfect shortage of dialogical perlocutionary acts (since degree instructions are more often than not descriptive) may be claimed - below formal theoretical parameters - to suggest one among self sufficient chronologies or another way a differed diegetic timing opposed to the unique immediacy of authorship, if shall we estrange the absent writer from ontological viewers. In different phrases, if didascalia are quite often often called to be structurally reflexive in correspondence to the linearity of time and activities (fictitious variables) even if to performers on degree, or to readers off-stage-through a medium coder of signifiers (author) could the authorial upmost reference preserve an analogous mode of diegetic liberation while dualized; in response to which signature (before discussion and therefore prior to reference) and omniscience (off discussion and therefore unreliable) show up a ‘space’ of didascalic autology*?

On the alert of a transitional stage-direction hence from the fiction of narrative didascalia to a non-fiction of its meta-textuality, discrepancies appertaining the metaphoricity of its dialogical rhetoric are as a result of be rehearsed in among semiotic topographies, and then the non-dialogic rhetoric can be timed. because the meta-textual metaphorical reputation of
dramatis personae in glossy drama is apparently subjective to the omniscient rhetorical approach to narration by means of advantage of unreliable representational comparison of signifiers (between what readers polarize through the prelocutionary strength of dramatis personae opposed to the descriptive prolonged allegory of the writer) a syntactic “identity” turns out to were traditionally repressed; which, although it may be well-known as a conceptual metaphor - concerning the knowledge of 1 proposal, or as a conceptual area, when it comes to one other - it proposes so much essentially a chronological shift of indicators assorted from these in a given textual content. Such chronology does appear to lurk among the diegesis of inference and the mimesis of reference that each one jointly wait for a centripetal duality of rhetorical augmentation in didascalia itself (away from a given functionality) that enables a meta-textual liberation of lexical heterodiegtic directions.
