Sprachphilosophie by Elisabeth Leiss( Book )
16 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in German and held by 160 libraries worldwide
Every philosophical involvement with language centres on the notion of representation. There is controversy over what language represents. The answers can be classified and used as a basis for a systematic survey: 1. Language represents the world.2. Language does not represent the world but our ideas of the world.3. Language represents our ideas (of the world) badly.4. Language not only represents badly; it does not represent anything.5. Without language there would be no representation of a higher order and thus no thought. The main intention behind this introduction to linguistic philosophy lies in revealing the underlying ordering principle for the many simultaneous and non-simultaneous attempts at a philosophy of language. Elisabeth Leiss, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München

Review text: "Der von Frau Leiss in diesem Werk geleistete Beitrag zur Erforschung der grammatischen Kategorien, ihrer Phänomenologie und ihres Zusammenspiels ist in jedem Fall enorm und wird hoffentlich in der Sprachwissenschaft der Zukunft noch viel Anwendung finden." Evira Veselinovic, Kratylos 48/2003 "..., the book is a very original contribution to the discussion of definiteness and will certainly initiate more dicussion on these issues."

Modes of modality : modality, typology, and universal grammar by Elisabeth Leiss( Book )
14 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 78 libraries worldwide
Modality is one of the grammatical categories in Igbo language studies that received the least attention within the last century. There is, however, a growing awareness that the category of modality is expressed in the language through specific verbs and suffixes that have recently been (re- )categorised as modal verbs and modal suffixes, respectively (Uchechukwu 2008, 2011). This paper explores further the issue of modality in Igbo by focusing on the constructions and lexical items that could be involved in the implicit expression of modality in the language. The different types of constructio

Chronologisches Wörterbuch des deutschen Wortschatzes : der Wortschatz des 8. Jahrhunderts (und früherer Quellen) : (Titelabkürzung, ChWdW8) by Elmar Seebold( Book )
3 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in German and held by 10 libraries worldwide
Main description: This dictionary contains the complete OHG lexis from the 8th century (and from earlier sources) and presents the first part of a planned chronological dictionary of German vocabulary. This is the first work that can claim to give a complete account of German words in Latin sources of this age and of borrowings into Latin. The words are categorised first by word families (citing sources with a chronological division into quarter-centuries and with a regional classification), then by first occurrences, and finally by NHG words with equivalents in the 8th century or earlier. This chronological dictionary is of central importance for etymology and lexical history, but also for philological and historical enquiries
Genus im Althochdeutschen : eine funktionale Analyse des Mehrfachgenus althochdeutscher Substantive by Regine Froschauer( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in German and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Die vorliegende Arbeit bestätigt die Hypothese, daß im Althochdeutschen ein ehemaliges, im Indogermanischen funktionierendes, hochmotiviertes Genussystem relikthaft erhalten ist. Das bedeutet, daß im Althochdeutschen von jedem Substantiv potentiell alle drei Genera gebildet werden konnten. Die Überprüfung von Substantiven mit Mehrfachgenus an allen Belegstellen in der gesamten althochdeutschen Textüberlieferung, ausgehend von der semantischen Motiviertheit der Genuszuweisung (Maskulinum: Singulativum - Femininum: Kollektivum - Neutrum: Kontinuativum), erwies einen in Spuren noch lebendigen Zusammenhang von Genuswechsel und Bedeutungswechsel bei einem selben Substantiv. Gestützt wird der Befund durch den Sekundärwortschatz im Bereich der Derivation, wobei das Genus als Einteilungsprinzip für die Derivationsarten des Althochdeutschen geltend gemacht werden kann. Die beigefügte Material-CD dokumentiert rund 6700 Belegstellen von 271 untersuchten Lexemen
