English linguistics : a coursebook for students of English by Thomas Herbst( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1,086 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book introduces the reader to the central areas of English linguistics. The main sections are: the English language and linguistics - sounds - meaning-carrying units - sentences: models of grammar - meaning - utterances - variation. Notably, the book is written from a foreign student's perspective of the English language, i.e. aspects relevant to foreign language teaching receive particular attention. A great deal of emphasis is put on the insights to be gained from the analysis of corpora, especially with respect to the idiomatic character of language (idiom principle, valency approach). In addition, the text offers basic facts about the history of the language and elaborates on the differences between British and American English. The author demonstrates that a linguistic fact can usually be described in more than one way. To this end, each section contains a chapter written for beginners providing a broad outline and introducing the basic terminology. The remaining chapters in each section highlight linguistic facts in more detail and give an idea of how particular theories account for them. The book can be used both from the first semester onwards and as perfect study aid for final B.A.-examinations
Moses Mendelssohns sprachpolitik by Grit Schorch( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first comprehensive study on Moses Mendelssohn's (1729-1786) language philosophy. While guiding the reader through the German and Hebrew sections of the uvre, a new perspective is gained that brings Mendelssohn closer to the skeptical currents of Enlightenment. The dialectics of human and sacred language play a constitutive role for his language theory as well as for his aesthetics and metaphysics, and finally lead into the political idea of a just, social order. Thus, he developed an important alternative to monolingual, national language concepts
Rationale Schiiten : Ismailitische Weltsichten nach einer postkolonialen Lektüre von Max Webers Rationalismusbegriff by Markus Wachowski( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Rationalismus ist ein zentraler Pfeiler des modernen okzidentalen Selbstverständnisses. Der Begriff ist aber, wie eine postkoloniale Lektüre des Begriffs in Max Webers religionsvergleichenden Studien zeigt, ebenso ein Instrument zur Hierarchisierung und Essentialisierung im interreligiösen und interkulturellen Vergleich. Dabei wendet sich der Rationalismusbegriff nicht nur in Gestalt des Orientalismus gegen den „irrationalen“ Islam, sondern als dessen spiegelbildliche Rückseite bestimmt er ebenso die idealisierte Selbstdarstellung des Westens als Okzidentalismus und marginalisiert dabei dessen Irrationalität. Um diese Polarität im Religionsvergleich zu überwinden, werden die rationalen wie irrationalen Anteile schiitischer Theologie hinsichtlich ihrer Funktion zur Konstruktion einer sinnhaften Weltsicht in Beziehung gesetzt. In drei Stadien der ismailitischen Geschichte wird das Verhältnis von sozio-politischer Lebenswelt der Gemeinschaft und zentralen Konzepten der Theologie untersucht. In der Analyse von Imamatslehre, Kosmogonie und Eschatologie vor, während und nach dem Fatimidenreich offenbart sich die Dynamik von Rationalität und Irrationalität religiöser Weltbilder jenseits hegemonialer Imaginationen und hierarchisierender Vergleiche

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By studying applications in radar, telecommunications and digital image restoration, this monograph discusses signal processing techniques based on bispectral methods. Improved robustness against different forms of noise as well as preservation of phase information render this method a valuable alternative to common power-spectrum analysis used in radar object recognition, digital wireless communications, and jitter removal in images

Judentum und Christentum haben Amtsträger, um die vielfältigen Aufgaben der Gemeinschaft zu erfüllen.

Hebräisch : Biblisch-hebräische Unterrichtsgrammatik by Martin Krause( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Grammar is intended as a textbook to support Hebrew classes which gives the teachers the maximum latitude for the selection and application of different teaching methods and for the students simplifies the tasks of learning, looking up and repetition with its clear and transparent ordering of the teaching material. In its design, the work dispenses with a division into lessons, and from the outset bases its processing of the material on the biblical texts. The work is complemented by a comprehensive collection of texts and a highly structured vocabulary
