In mehreren Disziplinen gilt das wissenschaftliche Interesse derzeit den aktuellen Aspekten des Medienwandels. In den Textwissenschaften gerät nach der Konzentration auf mediale Produktanalysen, Textsortenbestimmungen und Konzeptualisierungen von "Medientexten" heute der gesamte Prozess der Medienkommunikation in den Blick. In den Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaften wird den sprachlichen und ästhetischen Konsequenzen der Ausdifferenzierung des Mediensystems Rechnung getragen. Die Publizistikwissenschaft thematisiert Struktur und Rezeption von Medientexten in genetischer Perspektive und untersucht in unterkultureller Absicht ihre Leistung in globaler Verständigung und Konfliktlösung. Für die Verständigung über solche fachübergreifenden Fragestellungen fehlt bislang ein gemeinsames theoretisches Fundament und begriffssystematisches Vokabular. Deshalb bietet dieser Band vor dem Horizont einer erst in Umrissen erkennbaren Mediensemiotik eine transdisziplinäre Pluralität von Perspektiven auf den gemeinsamen Gegenstand.
Interjections play an important role in communicative as well as non-communicative contexts, and their actual linguistic value and role were underestimated and misjudged for quite a long time: Interjections are among the most little studied of language phenomena; as one looks for references to them in the works of linguists, one is struck by the fact that they are very rarely mentioned, and where they are mentioned, it is usually only briefly and cursorily (James 1973: 1, The Syntax and Semantics of Some English Interjections). Only recently have linguists delved into the subject of interjections and discovered that this particular linguistic phenomenon provides in fact ample opportunity for study and research. Moreover, with the interest in interjections the problem arose to determine what actually defines an interjection. Opinions on this point differ considerably and attempts at agreeing upon the definition of interjections have been unsuccessful so far. Yet, there are some general tendencies which will form the basis for how the term interjection is used in this paper. This study aims at gaining an insight into the acquisition of interjections in early childhood. This field has been neglected so far but merits in fact extensive and thorough inspection. This book consists of three main parts, with the first two parts forming the basis for my study in part III.: in the first part I will provide a brief overview on child language acquisition, focussing particularly on phonological development. The second part consists of a theoretical disquisition on interjections to illustrate what characteristics they have and what peculiarities they show. In the third and final part I will come to my study on the acquisition of interjections in early childhood. The database used to conduct the research for this study was CHILDES. Both the interjections produced by children and their caregivers were of interest for comparison in order to determine the role of input for the acqu

This book is designed to usher the reader into the realm of semiotic studies. It analyzes the most important approaches to semiotics as they have developed over the last hundred years out of philosophy, linguistics, psychology, and biology. As a science of sign processes, semiotics investigates all types of com munication and information exchange among human beings, animals, plants, internal systems of organisms, and machines. Thus it encompasses most of the subject areas of the arts and the social sciences, as well as those of biology and medicine. Semiotic inquiry into the conditions, functions, and structures of sign processes is older than anyone scientific discipline. As a result, it is able to make the underlying unity of these disciplines apparent once again without impairing their function as specializations. Semiotics is, above all, research into the theoretical foundations of sign oriented disciplines: that is, it is General Semiotics. Under the name of Zei chenlehre, it has been pursued in the German-speaking countries since the age of the Enlightenment. During the nineteenth century, the systematic inquiry into the functioning of signs was superseded by historical investigations into the origins of signs. This opposition was overcome in the first half of the twentieth century by American Semiotic as well as by various directions of European structuralism working in the tradition of Semiology. Present-day General Semiot ics builds on all these developments.
