Title: Oberfläche und Performanz
Subtitle: Untersuchungen zur Sprache als dynamischer Gestalt

Series Title: Germanistische Linguistik 283
Description:

With surface and performance, this collected volume places two concepts
centre-stage which could be regarded as key terms for the object of
linguistics. At the same time, they delineate the field which the papers in
the volume sound out both theoretically and in empirical studies.

An introductory section containing methodological explorations of surface
and performance is followed by three thematically distinct sections. The
first main section contains papers examining surface and performance from
the aspect of order. A second block is concerned with understanding as a
quality of communication essential to the concept of language, and a third
section focuses on the concepts of mediality and medium. The volume
presents the proceedings of a conference held on Monte Verità
(Switzerland), which followed on epistemologically from an earlier
conference and the resultant collected volume (Linke/Ortner/Portmann:
Sprache und mehr. Ansichten einer Linguistik der sprachlichen Praxis.
Tübingen 2003). The present volume progresses the discussion of how the
object of linguistics is understood and demonstrates the innovative
potential of a linguistics oriented on the materiality of linguistic
surface structures and which explicitly sees its object as the dynamics and
communicative added value of linguistic performance.
