English summary: The collected essays in this volume deal with the current discussion on the meaning of Jesus' death. The authors look at this topic from various perspectives: the question of pagan, Old Testament, Jewish background, and different interpretations in the New Testament, reception in the early church and in the Gospel of Thomas, and systematic theological contributions. The volume makes a significant contribution to the ongoing debate on the interpretation of Jesus' death and its meaning for Christian theology. German description: In diesem Sammelband wird die gegenwartige Diskussion uber die theologische Bedeutung des Todes Jesu aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven beleuchtet. Der Band vereint deutsche und englische Studien zum paganen, alttestamentlichen und judischen Hintergrund der urchristlichen Deutungsmodelle, Spezialbeitrage zum Verstandnis des Todes Jesu in einzelnen neutestamentlichen Schriften, Studien zur Rezeption der urchristlichen Modelle im 2. Jahrhundert und Beitrage, die sich mit der systematischen und religionspadagogischen Relevanz exegetisch-historischer Resultate befassen. Das Buch unternimmt auf diese Weise einen interdisziplinaren Zugang zu einem zentralen theologischen Thema. In den einleitenden Beitragen wird der grossere Horizont der Diskussion thematisiert und auf der Rahmen fur die weiteren Beitrage abgesteckt.

Wer ist stark, wer ist schwach? Sind die Schwachen nicht die eigentlich Starken? Wer und was bestimmt, wer stark ist? Die Auswahl der Waffen, das Unterlaufen der Zensur, das Umschreiben der Erinnerung, die Inszenierung oder doch die Musik? Alle Texte widmen sich auf einem anderen Feld diesem Thema und werden so dem interdisziplinaren Ansatz des Collegium Pontes gerecht. Das Collegium Pontes Gorlitz-Zgorzelec-Zhořelec hat unter der Schirmherrschaft der Aussenminister der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, der Republik Polen und der Tschechischen Republik eine Reihe eminenter Wissenschaftler und geistiger Exponenten eingeladen, gemeinsam uber Bedingungen europaischer Solidaritat nachzudenken und, ausgehend vom Verfassungsentwurf, mogliche Defekte und Zukunftswege und Moglichkeiten aufzuzeigen. Dieser Band versammelt die zentralen, in Gorlitz diskutierten Texte; weitere Beitrage wurden unter veroffentlicht."

Split Possession

An Areal-linguistic Study of the Alienability Correlation and Related Phenomena in the Languages of Europe

This book is a functional-typological study of possession splits in European languages. It shows that genetically and structurally diverse languages such as Icelandic, Welsh, and Maltese display possessive systems which are sensitive to semantically based distinctions reminiscent of the alienability correlation. These distinctions are grammatically relevant in many European languages because they require dedicated constructions. What makes these split possessive systems interesting for the linguist is the interaction of semantic criteria with pragmatics and syntax. Neutralisation of distinctions occurs under focus. The same happens if one of the constituents of a possessive construction is syntactically heavy. These effects can be observed in the majority of the 50 sample languages. Possessive splits are strong in those languages which are outside the Standard Average European group. The bulk of the European languages do not behave much differently from those non-European languages for which possession splits are reported. The book reveals interesting new facts about European languages and possession to typologists, universals researchers, and areal linguists.

Translating Fictional Dialogue for Children and Young People

Literary and multimodal texts for children and young people play an important role in their acquisition of language and literacy, and they are a flourishing part of publishing and translating activities today. This book brings together twentyone papers on the particular aspect of the translation of feigned orality. As the link between the literary and the multimodal text, fictional dialogue is the appropriate place for evoking orality, lending authenticity and credibility to the narrated plot and giving a voice to fictitious characters. This is illustrated with examples from narrative and dramatic texts as well as films, cartoons and television series, in their respective modes of mediation: translating, interpreting, dubbing and subtitling. The findings are of interest from the scholarly point of view of contrastive linguistics, for the professional practice of translating, interpreting, dubbing and subtitling and in the educational context.

He is a translator from Catalan, Spanish and Dutch into German and teaches translation and German at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona. Maria Wirf Naro. PhD thesis on lexical composition in German.

This intermediate, modular approach to German grammar serves as both a reference handbook and a practice manual. The text is organized to allow instructors to follow each chapter sequentially or to teach in modules, as each chapter is self-contained and can be used in any order. The chapter structure of the 24 regular chapters provides a presentation of new information, followed by material for oral and written practice: Grammatik (grammar), Wortschatz (vocabulary), Übungen (exercises, self-practice, and small-group practice), Anwendung (application, in-class group activities), Schriftliche Themen (writing topics), and Zusammenfassung (summary). The six reference chapters consist of grammar presentations through explanations, models, and charts; and Übersicht (summary).
