Sprachphilosophie by Elisabeth Leiss( Book )
14 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in German and held by 157 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.

Modes of modality : modality, typology, and universal grammar by Elisabeth Leiss( Book )
17 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 84 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

Im Spiegel der Grammatik : Beiträge zur Theorie sprachlicher Kategorisierung ( Book )
1 edition published in 2017 in German and held by 31 libraries worldwide
Die Metapher "Sprache als Spiegel" steht in der Tradition der "spekulativen Grammatik" des Mittelalters für eine Auffassung, nach der Sprache die Wirklichkeit ikonisch widerspiegelt und Grammatik unterschiedliche Perspektiven zur Konzeptualisierung dieser Wirklichkeit bereitstellt. Diese axiomatische Grundlage liegt auch den Arbeiten von Elisabeth Leiss zugrunde, der dieser Band gewidmet ist. Die einzelnen Beiträge eint einerseits der Bezug auf funktionale Musterbildungen in der Grammatik, andererseits das Verhandeln des Verhältnisses zwischen Sprache - Denken - Welt. Gleichzeitig spiegeln die Beiträge das breite Wirkungsspektrum der Grundgedanken von Elisabeth Leiss, das sich über Sprachtheorie und -philosophie, Sprachgeschichte, Variationslinguistik, grammatische Deixis, Psycho- und Patholinguistik und Sprachtypologie erstreckt
