- ItemPräfixverben in einer mehrstufigen Analyse - Versuch einer Modellierung unter konfrontativem Blick(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 1989) Schröder, JochenIn reference to requirements and needs of foreign language teaching the author, motivated by the requirements and needs of methodology of foreign language teaching, performs a confrontative analysis of prefixal verbs of the German language and their Polish equivalents and proves that word-formation studies must be extended with a syntactic aspect since inter-language differences are manifested in an actual usage (on the surface structure).
- ItemPhraseologisierte Partizipialkonstruktionen im Deutschen und Polnischen(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 1989) Schatte, CzesławaThe author analyses participial constructions in German and Polish taking into consideration their semantic aspect as well as pragmatic one and discusses their specific status on the borderline between syntax and phraseology.
- ItemSprachhandlung Einladung/Vorschlag/Verabredung im Deutschen und Polnischen(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 1989) Prokop, IzabelaThe article contains a definition of the act of invitation against the background of classification of speech acts, and then the survey of linguistic structures used in this type of situation together with the pragmatic analysis of the latter. The replies (replicas) used together with "invitation" formulas were also included in the analysis. The result of the study is an observation of a high degree of convergence of these utterances in German and Polish.
- ItemThe nicest English is in Indiana(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 1989) Preston, Dennis R.Nonlinguists' hand-drawn maps of their perceptions of US dialect areas reveal that prescription is an important part of their area identifications. Labels in these maps, however, indicate that two preferences may be at work - a preference for a "correct" English and another for a "pleasant" or "normal" variety. The fifty states, New York City, and Washington, D. C. were ranked for "pleasantness" of speech by young, white, well-educated, male and female residents of southern Indiana. The intensity of agreement (through standard deviations), a number of individual areas, the difference between men's and women's ratings, and the differences between the two modes of presentation of the research instrument are analyzed. The results are contrasted with an earlier ranking of the same areas by similar informants for the notion "correct" and generalized by being placed on a map representing the perception of US speech areas obtained from similar informants.
- ItemBeobachtungen zum Kompositionstyp Substantiv + freundlich im Vergleich mit dem Polnischen(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 1989) Koniuszaniec, GabrielaThe subject of considerations in this article is a word formation consisting of a noun and an adjective "freundlich". Compounds of this type, characteristic mainly of the German language, occur most often in the press. The material base in this article are data stored in the Mannheim corpus and examples derived from West German press. The above mentioned compounds were analysed in respect of morphology, syntax and semantics. Contrastive study showed that these compounds do not have formally their analogical equivalent in Polish. That is why they are expressed in Polish either by means of negation, or less frequently as adjectives or adverbs.
