It includes corpus-lexicographical, computational, rigorously phonological, historical/dialectal, comparative, semiotic, acquisitional and pedagogical contributions. In all, a variety of approaches from the rigorously 'pure' and formal to the applied, often feeding off each other to focus on various aspects of the German language.

Valency occupies a special place in German linguistics. It not only features prominently in newer grammars of German but has also inspired a wealth of lexicographic work, often of a contrastive nature. The concept has also triggered a fierce theoretical discussion over the last 15 years which has, to the surprise of some, strengthened rather than weakened its central place in grammatography. The papers in this volume examine the continuing importance of valency as a dynamic force within linguistics - which has evolved in a number of directions in recent years and has stimulated much fruitful debate - and also offer insights into the practical application of valency theory in a number of areas. Several papers embody recent theoretical thinking, including its interface with general theories of human language, while the majority of contributions are devoted to the discussion of practical applications which involve a substantial element of contrastive study. Die Valenztheorie hat eine besondere Stellung in der germanistischen Linguistik. Sie spielt nicht nur eine zentrale Rolle in den neueren Grammatiken des Deutschen, sondern sie hat auch eine erhebliche Anzahl an lexikographischen Projekten (oft kontrastiver Natur) angeregt. Um den Valenzbegriff wurde in den letzten 15 Jahren eine zum Teil erbitterte theoretische Diskussion gefuhrt, die - und dies kam fur Kritiker uberraschend - seine zentrale Bedeutung in der Grammatiktheorie eher gestarkt als geschwacht hat. Dieser Sammelband zeugt von der theoretischen Dynamik der gegenwartigen Valenzdebatte: In mehreren Beitragen werden jungste Theorieentwicklungen angesprochen, u. a. die Einbindung von Valenz in eine allgemeine Sprachtheorie. Danebenbefasst sich der Band mit praktischen Anwendungen von Valenz uberwiegend aus einer kontrastiven Perspektive.

One of the most difficult tasks confronting the English speaker learning German is that of finding exactly the right German word to translate an English word in a particular context. Many common English words have several, sometimes a bewildering number of German equivalents. Thus it is alltoo easy to find yourself saying the equivalent of Have you extinguished the rubbish? instead of Have you put out the rubbish? Bilingual dictionaries list equivalents, but give little or no information about their use. The articles in this practical dictionary are much longer than those to be foundin a bilingual dictionary, and the number of words treated is fewer, with a concentration on those which cause particular difficulties for speakers of English.The complexity of the relationship between English words and their German equivalents is attributable to two factors. Firstly, frequently-used English words often have more than one meaning, and each of the English meanings may be expressed by more than one German word. Such words will be at leastpartial synonyms, but the field of meaning is likely to be divided up in a way that is different from English. Each article in the book starts by separating out the different meanings of an English word, and then explains the meaning and use of the German equivalents for each, with numerousexamples.The book will be an essential reference work for advanced language learners and for teachers of German at all levels, offering a uniquely detailed insight into the structure of word meaning in German as well as practical advice on usage.

Die Beiträge in diesem Sammelband basieren auf Vorträgen, die 1996 im Rahmen der gleichnamigen Arbeitsgruppe auf der 18. Jahrestagung der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Sprachwissenschaft gehalten wurden.

Zentrale Aspekte sind der lexikalische vs. funktionale Kategorienstatus präpositionaler Elemente, ihre syntaktischen und semantischen Eigenschaften (auch im Hinblick auf Grammatikalisierungsprozesse), Aspekte der maschinellen Sprachverarbeitung präpositionaler Elemente sowie ihre Bedeutungen aus der Sicht der Kognitiven Linguistik.

Language Engineering examines the processes involved in dictionary-making using computational linguistics, including tagging, parsing, spell-checking, lexical semantics and machine translation. The book examines dictionary-building in English, but also includes appendices applying natural language processing to French and German. This book is the first detailed description of syntax and semantics using the C(C++) programming language, and as such should be essential reading for researchers in natural language processing and computational linguistics.
