This volume contains selected proceedings of the conferences held at Kirchberg, August 26, 1984 and Essen, November 21–24, 1984 devoted to Karl Bühler's Theory of Language. Both conferences took place exactly fifty years after the publication of Bühler's masterpiece. However, it was felt necessary to bring renewed attention to Bühler's work in order to highlight its importance. The contributions in this volume, all in the original German language, focus on a wide range of perspectives: biographical, psychological, sociological, semiotic and linguistic.

Perhaps the single most influential work of general linguistics published in this century, Leonard Bloomfield's Language is both a masterpiece of textbook writing and a classic of scholarship. Intended as an introduction to the field of linguistics, it revolutionized the field when it appeared in 1933 and became the major text of the American descriptivist school.

Language and Earth

Effective Affinities Between the Emerging Sciences of Linguistics and Geology

In former times, the study of language was rarely pursued in isolation, and many of the other intellectual concerns that used to be intertwined with language study have long been on the record of historians of linguistics. The present volume is the first to probe into an association of linguistics that has so far been neglected: that with the study of the earth. The relations between linguistics and geology were intimate and manifold as both sciences were emerging in the 18th and 19th century. Highlighted in the contributions to this volume are biographical and institutional contacts, the joint interest in origins and very early developments and in the proper methods of acquiring knowledge about these, common structural and evolutionary concepts, and analogous problems in the classification of domains as fuzzy as languages and rocks.

This white paper is part of a series that promotes knowledge about language technology and its potential. It addresses educators, journalists, politicians, language communities and others. The availability and use of language technology in Europe varies between languages. Consequently, the actions that are required to further support research and development of language technologies also differ for each language. The required actions depend on many factors, such as the complexity of a given language and the size of its community. META-NET, a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission, has conducted an analysis of current language resources and technologies. This analysis focused on the 23 official European languages as well as other important national and regional languages in Europe. The results of this analysis suggest that there are many significant research gaps for each language. A more detailed expert analysis and assessment of the current situation will help maximise the impact of additional research and minimize any risks. META-NET consists of 54 research centres from 33 countries that are working with stakeholders from commercial businesses, government agencies, industry, research organisations, software companies, technology providers and European universities. Together, they are creating a common technology vision while developing a strategic research agenda that shows how language technology applications can address any research gaps by 2020.

Die schreckliche deutsche Sprache / The Awful German Language

"Meine philologischen Studien haben mich davon überzeugt, dass ein begabter Mensch Englisch (außer Rechtschreibung und Aussprache) in 30 Stunden, Französisch in 30 Tagen und Deutsch in 30 Jahren lernen kann."Mit bissigem Humor beschreibt Mark Twain, der 1878 auf seiner zweiten Europareise auch Deutschland besuchte, die Absonderlichkeiten der deutschen Sprache: kilometerlange Wörter, Sätze, bei denen nach einer Viertelstunde ganz zum Schluss das Verb kommt, "und hinter das Verb stellt der Verfasser noch haben sind gewesen gehabt haben geworden sein". Das ist äußerst amüsant zu lesen, zumal wenn man, wie hier, das Original daneben hat, in dem die deutschen Wörter noch fremdartiger wirken. Und ganz nebenbei lernt man dadurch die eigene Sprache noch besser kennen.
