Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Literaturwissenschaft - Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft, Note: 1,3, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn (Germanistik, Vgl. Literatur- und Kulturwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: First Contact: Szenarien des Kulturkontakts und der Übersetzung, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der 1961 erschienene Roman "Solaris" ist vermutlich das berühmteste und meistgelesene Werk des polnischen Autors Stanislaw Lem und nimmt unter den zahlreichen Science-Fiction-Romanen des 20. Jahrhunderts, die vom Kontakt mit außerirdischen Lebensformen erzählen, außerdem eine besondere Position ein. Die herrschende Fülle von verschiedenen Deutungen des Romans beweist bereits auf den ersten Blick dessen auffällige Vieldeutigkeit, wobei diese unklare Bedeutungssituation von den Wissenschaftlern immer wieder mit dem Hinweis darauf unterstrichen wird, dass Lem eigenen Angaben zufolge "selber 'Solaris' nicht völlig verstanden" habe. Um ein vollkommenes Verständnis - ein ohnehin bei jeder literarischen Analyse utopisches Ziel - soll es aber auch in der vorliegenden Arbeit nicht gehen. Stattdessen wird der Roman spezifisch auf das zentrale Thema des Kontaktes zwischen Menschen und einer völlig fremdartigen Lebensform hin untersucht. Das zweite Hauptanliegen des Textes, die Liebesgeschichte zwischen dem Solaristen Kelvin und der vom Ozean geschaffenen Nachbildung seiner Frau Harey, wird dabei, abgesehen von ihrer Relevanz für die Kontaktsituation, weitgehend außenvorgelassen. Im Fokus dieser Untersuchung steht die Fragestellung, wodurch die Kontaktsituation in "Solaris" speziell gekennzeichnet ist. Dabei ist zu klären, ob es sich eigentlich um First Contact im engeren Sinne handelt, welche Kommunikationsversuche im Roman geschildert werden, ob damit letztendlich ein Kontakt hergestellt werden kann und schließlich, welche besondere Problematik mit jeder Deutung von "Solaris" einhergeht.

The dramatic representation of maritime spaces, characters and plots in Restoration and early eighteenth-century English theatres served as a crucial discursive negotiation of a burgeoning empire. This study focuses on 'staging the sea' in a period of growing maritime, commercial and colonial activity, a time when the prominence of the sea and shipping was firmly established in the very fabric of English life. As theatres were re-established after the Restoration, playhouses soon became very visible spaces of cultural activity and important locales for staging cultural contact and conflict. Plays staging the sea can be read as central in representing the budding maritime empire to metropolitan audiences, as well as negotiating political power and knowledge about the 'other'. The study explores well-known plays by authors such as Aphra Behn and William Wycherley alongside a host of more obscure plays by authors such as Edward Ravenscroft and Charles Gildon as cultural performances for negotiating cultural identity and difference in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Dr. Gunda Windmüller was born and raised in Cologne before moving to England, graduating with a BA in Politics and Sociology from the University of York. Returning to Germany, she completed a Masters degree in Comparative Literature, Politics and Sociology at the University of Bonn before completing a PhD in English Literature at the same institution.

A bungled hand-off lands St. Ives in jail on suspicion of murder. It's three in the morning, and Philip St. Ives has come to the all-night Laundromat to meet a thief. His laundry bag isn't carrying dirty clothing - it's stuffed with 90,000 cash. But he finds his contact, Bobby Boykins, in no state to talk. Bobby has been beaten, strangled, and stuffed behind a washing machine; Philip is inspecting the corpse when the police find him. Standing in a Laundromat with a dead body and a sack full of cash, Philip learns, is a good way to get arrested. St. Ives is a go-between - a mediator between thieves and their victims - and he came to meet Bobby for the sake of a rich man who has lost his diary. If Philip can escape the Tenth Precinct, Bobby's killer will come for him next. Review quote. 'Ross Thomas is without peer in American suspense.' - Los Angeles Times. 'What Elmore Leonard does for crime in the streets, Ross Thomas does for crime in the suites.' - The Village Voice. 'Ross Thomas is that rare phenomenon, a writer of suspense whose novels can be read with pleasure more than once.' - Eric Ambler, author of The Mask of Dimitrios. Biographical note. The winner of the inaugural Gumshoe Lifetime Achievement Award, Ross Thomas (1926-1995) was a prolific author whose political thrillers drew praise for their blend of wit and suspense. Born in Oklahoma City, Thomas grew up during the Great Depression, and served in the Philippines during World War II. After the war, he worked as a foreign correspondent, public relations official, and political strategist before publishing his first novel, 'The Cold War Swap' (1967), based on his experience working in Bonn, Germany. The novel was a hit, winning Thomas as an Edgar Award for Best First Novel and establishing the characters Mac McCorkle and Mike Padillo. Thomas followed it up with three more novels about McCorkle and Padillo, the last of which was published in 1990. He wrote nearly a book a year for twenty-five years, occasionally under the pen name Oliver Bleeck, and won the Edgar Award for Best Novel with 'Briarpatch' (1984). Thomas died of lung cancer in California in 1995, a year after publishing his final novel, 'Ah, Treachery!'

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Dolmetschen / Übersetzen, Note: 1,8, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn (Institut fu¿r Orient- und Asienwissenschaften), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 'The Babel fish is small, yellow and leech-like, and probably the oddest thing in the Universe. It feeds on brainwave energy received not from its own carrier but from those around it. It absorbs all unconscious mental frequencies from this brainwave energy to nourish itself with. The practical upshot of this is that if you stick a Babel fish in your ear you can instantly understand anything said to you in any language. [...] Meanwhile, the poor Babel fish, by effectively removing all barriers to communication between different races and cultures, has caused more and bloodier wars than anything else in the history of creation.'1 - Douglas Adams' 'Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy' Languages have always changed and evolved over the course of time. This somewhat organic process of change can neither be stopped, nor controlled. It is also a process that is quite difficult to monitor because it happens very subtle and on many different levels. One of the levels where it is possible to monitor and study language change is the phenomenon of lexical borrowing. Lexical borrowing is an inevitable result of language contact, because people will always utilize whatever communication tools they have to achieve mutual understanding and exchange. From this exchange new ideas and concepts may result that can enrich and sometimes change languages. The present thesis aims at giving a comparatively thorough analysis of lexical borrowing between two of the most widely spoken languages with worldwide distribution: International English and Standard (or Mandarin) Chinese. It therefore analyses different aspects of lexical borrowing between English and Chinese, including a historical survey of foreign language influences on Chinese, different channels of borrowing, loanword classification, adaptation methods for lexical borrowing and the cultural and linguistic impacts of the English language.

Dialect Change
51,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Dialects are constantly changing, and due to increased mobility in more recent years, European dialects have 'levelled', making it difficult to distinguish a native of Reading from a native of London, or a native of Bonn from a native of Cologne. This comprehensive study brings together a team of leading scholars to explore all aspects of recent dialect change, in particular dialect convergence and divergence. Drawing on examples from a wide range of European countries - as well as areas where European languages have been transplanted - they examine a range of issues relating to dialect contact and isolation, and show how sociolinguistic conditions differ hugely between and within European countries. Each specially commissioned chapter is based on original research, giving an overview of work on that particular area and presenting case studies to illustrate the issues discussed. Dialect Change will be welcomed by all those interested in sociolinguistics, dialectology, the relevance of language variation to formal linguistic theories, and European languages.

The Nato Advanced Research Workshop on Plant Hormone Receptors was held at the Physik Zentrum in Bad Honnef near Bonn, August 18-22, 1986. This workshop was mainly supported by the Nato Scientific Affairs Division and additionally cosponsered by Hoechst AG, Frankfurt and BASF AG, Ludwigshafen. The workshop aimed at focusing research on plant hormone recep tors. It should provide an opportunity to all who work in this field to report on their very recent data and to discuss their results with the most competent' colleagues. The total number of participants was limited to 30 to ensure personal contact and intensive discussions. Everyone had to either give a lecture or practical course. One half of the participants were invited, the other was selected by applications. Plant hormone receptors are assumed to exist but clear results are still rare. Nevertheless encouraging results have been published over the last years. Receptors for animal hormones and neuronal transmitters are well characterized, both structu rally and functionally. Therefore scientists dealing with recep tors for steroid hormones - Prof. E.E. Baulieu, Paris and Prof. J. R. Gustafsson, Huddinge - and for acetylcholine - Prof. A. Maelicke, Dortmund - were invited to participate in the workshop.
