Book Information


Title: Einführung in die Satzanalyse (Constituent Analysis in German)
Subtitle: Die Bestimmung der Satzglieder im Deutschen
Written By: Klaus Welke
Series Title: de Gruyter Studienbuch

Constituent analysis is one of the basic skills required of prospective
specialists in German studies and is therefore a mandatory component of
university teaching. The textbook offers a detailed overview of the
theoretical concepts and terminology of constituent analysis, which are
explained by way of numerous applied examples and sample analyses, and
supplemented by exercises and an index. As a result, the book provides the
reader with a universally applicable tool for accurately identifying
individual constituents (main clause, subordinate clause, object,
predicate, attribute, etc) and can also be used for self-study. The book
also gives well-founded insights into the syntactic structure of the German
language and facilitates language comparison in foreign language teaching.
Although the book is especially intended for students, it will also serve
as a fundamental teaching aid for student teachers, as well as teachers and
instructors of linguistics.

Key Features:

*Detailed introduction to constituent analysis
*Valuable preparatory work for the study of linguistics
*Relevant for university study, school education and self-study
*With numerous examples and sample analyses

Of interest to: Students, Academics, Institutes, Libraries
