Journal: Linguistische Treffen in Wroclaw


All numbers available in archive

https://linguistische-treffen.pl/en/archive

https://linguistische-treffen.pl/en/issues/16


Die Reihe „Linguistische Treffen in Wrocław“ ist als ein Versuch konzipiert worden, den Leserinnen und Lesern die Gelegenheit zu bieten, sich einen Einblick in thematisch und methodologisch verschiedene Bereiche der modernen germanistischen Linguistik zu verschaffen. Das breite Spektrum der in der Zeitschrift angesprochenen Themen, Motive, Methoden und vor allem der konfrontativ orientierten Ansätze, die die Forschungslandschaft der modernen, interdisziplinären Germanistik bestimmen, ermöglicht es uns, nicht nur den Stand der Dinge zu ermitteln, sondern vielmehr auch die sich abzeichnenden Tendenzen und Entwicklungsrichtungen der modernen Linguistik zu skizzieren. Die einzelnen Hefte sind thematischen Schwerpunkten zugeordnet und werden in deutscher Sprache verfasst.


The series "Linguistic Meetings in Wroclaw" has been conceived as an attempt to give readers the opportunity to gain an insight into thematically and methodologically different areas of modern Germanic linguistics. The broad spectrum of topics, motives, methods and, above all, the confrontational approaches that determine the research landscape of modern, interdisciplinary Germanics, allows us not only to determine the state of affairs, but also to outline the emerging trends and trends in modern linguistics. The individual volumes are assigned thematic priorities and are written in German.

I'm constantly searching the Internet for German-language documentaries, and the ones that meet my taste are often British, American and French productions that have been dubbed or voiced over. Every now and then, though, I'm lucky enough to find a documentary of German origin that combines riveting subject material with outstanding acting, sets and direction. I just watched three YouTube videos that I feel meet this criteria, and I thought somebody here might like them as much as I do. They're from a series called "Frauen die Geschichte machten", and each one deals with a different fascinating woman from history:

Elizabeth I

Joan of Arc

If you're interested in history, you might want to subscribe to the Eine Stunde History podcast, whose target demographic is younger listeners.

Myths in language learning: "Latin furthers logical thinking" .. etc


https://www.swr.de/swr2/wissen/swr2-wis ... 2-100.html



Latein und andere Sprachen – Legenden und Wahrheiten

Das Schriftliche hat gegenüber dem Mündlichen einen höheren Stellenwert, sagt man. Oder: Latein fördert das logische Denken. Viele Mythen ranken sich um die Sprache. Der Anglist Dr. Werner Schäfer geht ihnen nach.

Is the cradle of mankind not in Africa, but in Europe?

this is no nonsense, although the out-of-Africa crowd is strictly against it

subtitled in German and French, audio in German, excellent quality (there should also be French audio somewhere)

Liegt die Wiege der Menschheit nicht in Afrika, sondern in Europa? Ein in Athen gefundener 7,2 Millionen Jahre alter Unterkiefer zeigt ebenso wie ein in Bulgarien gefundener Zahn vor-menschliche Merkmale; auf Kreta deuten versteinerte Fußabdrücke darauf hin, dass hier schon vor sechs Millionen Jahren, früher als in Afrika, ein Wesen aufrecht gegangen ist.

Is the cradle of mankind not in Africa, but in Europe? A 7.2 million year old lower jaw found in Athens shows pre-human characteristics, as does a tooth found in Bulgaria; on Crete, fossilized footprints indicate that a being walked upright here six million years ago, earlier than in Africa.

Leider nicht verfügbar in meinem Land.
Arte is an interesting TV channel. I think it is a cooperation between Germany and France, so they've always got audio in both languages.

Have you seen "Deutschland von oben"? Very interesting documentary on society and history.
Edit: And of course nature and landscape filmed from above.

That European origins doc covers what is old archaeology, from 2012 and 2017. We're talking about less than a handful of finds and no idea how they got there. Multiple points of separate evolution is a stretch enough, but this hypothesis is nothing like a challenge to African origins of homo sapiens. It excites the Herrenvolk though.

Es gibt viele wertige Dinge gesehen zu werden auf Arte (ich schaue es mir ziemlich oft an, hauptsächlich in französischer Sprache), aber es ist auch nicht immun gegen Quacksalberei.
