Download e-book for iPad: Optimalitätstheorie (German Edition) by Jesus Wagner

By Jesus Wagner

ISBN-10: 3640708903

ISBN-13: 9783640708901

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Sprachwissenschaft / Sprachforschung (fachübergreifend), notice: 1,7, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Department of Englisch and Linguistics), Veranstaltung: Seminar für phonetische Typologie , 14 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die Optimalitätstheorie (OT) wurde 1993 mit einem unveröffentlichen Manuskript eingeführt, nämlich Optimality Theorie (A. Prince & P. Smolensky (1993)) und ist gegenwärtig eine der einflussreichsten Theorien innerhalb der Phonologie. Allerdings sind wichtige Aspekte der ursprünglichen OT im Laufe der Jahre von verschiedenen Autoren vertieft worden. Dazu gehören Archangeli & Langendoen (1997), Dekkers (2000), Kager (1999), McCarthy & Prince (1993, 1994, 1995a, '95b), verschiedene Dissertationen, unveröffentlichte Artikel und Beiträge im virtuellen Rutgers Archiv der Optimalitätstheorie (ROA).
Die OT ist so konzipiert, dass sie als eine Formale Theorie behandelt wird. D.h. sie beschreibt nicht consistent with se spezifische Phänomene, sondern liefert den theoretischen Rahmen, in dem eine substantielle Theorie ausgedrückt werden kann. Sie ist im Prinzip auf alle Gegenstandsbezogenen beschränkungs- oder Prinzipienbasierte Theorien anwendbar, solange deren Prinzipien bzw.
Beschränkungen im Sinne der OT interpretiert oder reinterpretiert werden können. Die OT wurde Anfangs im Bereich der Phonologie entwickelt, findet aber mittlerweile auch in der Morphologie, Syntax, Spracherwerb, -Variation und -Typologie, Maschinelle Sprachverarbeitung und Sprachgeschichte zunehmend Anwendung.
Nach der OT teilen sich die Grammatiken aller menschlichen Sprachen eine Menge von universell gültigen (Wohlgeformtheits-)Beschränkungen (constraints). Diese sind so einfach und allgemein, dass sie in vielen Kontexten in Konflikt miteinander stehen, d.h. sie können nicht gleichzeitig erfüllt werden.

By Kathleen Fritzsche

ISBN-10: 3640317769

ISBN-13: 9783640317769

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Sprachwissenschaft / Sprachforschung (fachübergreifend), word: 1,0, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Obwohl Shiga Naoya 1946 sogar den Versuch unternahm, Französisch als Nationalsprache in Japan zu etablieren (Suzuki 1990: 41), hat diese Sprache nie so einen großen Einfluss auf das Japanische ausgeübt wie etwa das Englische. Diese Einflussnahme wurde deshalb ermöglicht, da das Japanische und deren etwa 127 Mio. Sprecher wie kaum eine andere Sprache aufgeschlossen gegenüber der Entlehnung von Fremdwörtern aus anderen Sprachen ist. Sobald die Fremdwörter dann vollständig in Aussprache, Orthographie und Flexion in die entlehnende Sprache integriert sind, spricht guy von Lehnwörtern. Der Terminus „Lehnwort“ im weiteren Sinn wird auch als Oberbegriff für Fremdwörter benutzt, wobei die Unterscheidung nicht immer klar ist.Im Folgenden werden zunächst der Sprachkontakt und dessen allgemeine Aspekte dargestellt, worauf dann die geschichtliche Entwicklung des Sprachkontakts in Japan und dessen Einfluss auf die japanische Gesellschaft näher erläutert werden. Ein besonderesAugenmerk wird daraufhin auf die französischen Lehnwörter im Japanischen gelegt. Dabei spielen Arten der Entlehnungen eine Rolle sowie die Bereiche, aus denen Wörter in die japanische Sprache entlehnt wurden und die phonologische Angleichung der Lehnwörter an das Japanische. Hinzu kommt die Veranschaulichung der Bedeutung der japanischen Silbenschrift katakana in Bezug auf die Lehnwörter im Japanischen. Abschließend wird der heutige Einfluss der französischen Lehnwörter auf die japanische Sprache näher beleuchtet.
