Phraseologie / Phraseology. Volume 1
Phraseology includes the whole area of more or less "fixed" combinations of words on up to formulaic sentences and texts. While systematic research on phraseology goes back to the beginning of the 20th century, broad-based international research only began to develop in the 70’s, but all the more rapidly since. The Handbook offers a systematic outline and overview of the available results of this research. Alongside structural linguistic topics, the Handbook treats stylistic, pragmatic, semiotic, sociolinguistic, areal and historical linguistic aspects of phraseology, as well as issues of phraseology related to specific types of texts and talk, technical and literary language. It emphasizes specific characteristics of phraseology in various Indo-European and non-Indo-European languages along with contrastive linguistic, translation theoretical and lexicographic issues. Finally, the Handbook pays special attention to new developments in phraseology such as: the cognitive basis of phraseology, psycholinguistic problems, language acquisition and language teaching, and interculturality, as well as computer linguistic and corpus linguistic aspects of phraseology.
