By Maike Prehn

The objective of this phonological research is to set up even if the first prosodic characteristic in Low German dialects is tone, volume, or whatever else totally. All in all, we discover that Low German employs a mix of vowel caliber and vowel volume, which contains practical load. it's a binary phonological approach accounting for the ternary vowel period present in Low German. I indicate a very important contrast among fortis vs. lenis consonants via laryngeal specification vs. underspecification and, accordingly, structural complexity of the segments. it really is this complexity competition within the coda consonants, which has a profound effect at the vowel length of a previous nucleus. We arrive at a phonological floor competition of monomoraic vs. bimoraic and lax vs. demanding within the vowel approach, and of laryngeally targeted vs. unspecified within the consonant approach. Underlyingly, no volume distinction exists in Low German, all vowels being easily monomoraic. What continues to be is caliber. With the information and analyses provided during this thesis, Low German falls within the classification of languages that includes 3 phonetic levels of vowel size that may be traced again to a binary distinction on the floor point.

Download Frank Gehry MARTa Herford (German and English Edition) by MARTa Freunde und Förderer PDF

By MARTa Freunde und Förderer

Im Mai 2005 wurde in Herford, Zentrum der M?belindustrie Nordrhein-Westfalens, der von Frank O. Gehry entworfene Museumsbau er?ffnet. Die Galerie im bestehenden Geb?ude ist impartial gehalten und entspricht der Vorstellung von einem White dice; der Dom und die umliegenden Galerien weisen dagegen den eigenwilligen Charakter von Gehrys Formensprache auf. Dabei haben die kleineren Seitengalerien geschwungene Grundlinien, w?hrend der Dom einen rechtwinkligen Grundriss aufweist, mit W?lbungen erst ab einer H?he von rund f?nf Metern. So finden sich im MARTa Herford ganz verschiedene Ausstellungss?le, jeder mit seiner eigenen Atmosph?re, «den angemessenen Raum f?r die Ideen, Visionen und Impulse, die MARTa nicht zuletzt durch prospektive Ausstellungen und als Ort der Konfrontation der traditionell getrennten Bereiche Wirtschaft, layout und Kunst entwickeln wird», sagt MARTa-Direktor Jan Hoet, Documenta-Macher 1992 und bis 2004 ?beraus erfolgreicher Museumsleiter des SMAK in Gent.

Tackling phrases, letters, grammar and principles, no sacred cow is still untipped as Brohaugh unearths such attention-grabbing and irreverent shockers as:

- should you figuratively climb the partitions, you're agitated/frustrated/crazy. when you actually climb the partitions, you're Spiderman.

- "Biting the mum Tongue": English doesn't come from England.

- The note "queue" is the poster baby of an English spelling rule so dominant we'll name it a dominatrix rule: "U needs to keep on with Q! Slave!"

- loads of our vocabulary comes from the classical languages-clearly, Greece, and never Grease, is the observe, is the observe, is the word.

-Emoticons: disagreeable punctuational predictions

"Better plotted than a word list, extra riveting than a word list, extra filmable than a Harry Potter index-and that's simply Brohaugh's footsnorts... Imean, feetsnotes...umfeetsneets?...good gravy I'mglad I'mjust a cartoonist."
