Book Information


Title: Sprache intermedial [Language Intermedial]
Subtitle: Stimme und Schrift, Bild und Ton
Edited By: Arnulf Deppermann
Angelika Linke
Series Title: Jahrbuch des Instituts für Deutsche Sprache 2009

In our modern society with its increasing differentiation in culture and
media, language and speech are also confronted with new demands and
contexts for their use. In the new media, text and image become
increasingly closely interwoven, and what were traditionally thought to be
firm boundaries between the material forms of language - between speech and
writing - appear as increasingly fluid. The volume deals with the diversity
of manifestations of our language and its intermedial relations with other
forms of communication, including images, body language, sounds, and music.
