Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Mediengeschichte, Note: 1,9, Heinrich-Heine-Universitat Dusseldorf, 8 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 1. Einleitung In der vorliegenden Ausarbeitung unseres Referate Geschichte der Schrift werde ich einen (groben) Uberblick uber Entwicklungsstationen und -stadien der Schrift darstellen. Angefangen bei den Ursprungen der uns heute bekannten Schriftkultur - den Bildern und Symbolen - gehe ich im weiteren Verlauf auf die voralphabetischen Schriften wie der Keilschrift und der Chinesischen Schrift ein. Daraufhin gehe ich weiter auf das erste alphabetische Prinzip, auf das Phonizische Alphabet ein. Die Arbeit schliesse ich mit einem Beitrag zum lateinischen Alphabet ab. Bevor ich auf die Materie an sich, d.h. auf die Entwicklung der Schrift eingehe, mochte ich einige Definitionsansatze vorstellen. Im Brockhaus wird Schrift folgendermassen definiert: System grafischer Zeichen, die zum Zweck menschlicher Kommunikation verwendet werden. [ Schrift, Brockhaus, Band 4 NAR-SHAO 2003] In dieser kurzen Beschreibung wird Schrift als Kommunikationsmittel bezeichnet. Im Lexikon der Sprachwissenschaft hingegen findet sich folgende Definition: Auf konventionalisierten System von graphischen Zeichen basierendes Mittel zur Aufzeichnung mundlicher Sprache. Die Jahrtausende alte Geschichte der Schrift ist in ihrer Entwicklung stark von Magie, Religion und Mystik gepragt, zugleich aber auch vom kulturhistorischen Wandel der Materialien (Fels, Leder, Knochen, Pergament), Schreibwerkzeuge und Schreibtechniken [Bussmann, Hadumod (Hrsg.): Lexikon der Sprachwissenschaft, Stuttgart, 2002 ] In dieser Definition wird ausschliesslich die Dokumentations-Funktion der Schrift betont. Der Faktor Kommunikation wird ausser Acht gelassen. [...]"
