The Story of Webster's Third

Philip Gove's Controversial Dictionary and Its Critics

Author: Herbert C. Morton

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 9780521558693

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 332

View: 2097

The publication of Webster's Third New International Dictionary in 1961 set off a storm of intense controversy in both the popular press and in scholarly journals due to widespread disagreements about the nature of language and the role of the dictionary. This is the first full account of the controversy, set within the larger background of how the dictionary was planned and put together by its editor-in-chief, Philip Babcock Gove. Based on original research and interviews with the people who knew and worked with Gove, this is a human story as well as the story of the making of a dictionary. The author skillfully interweaves an account of Gove's character and working habits with the evolution of the dictionary. In spite of its rocky initial reception, Webster's Third is now widely regarded as one of the greatest dictionaries of our time.

Die "36 Strategeme" in der chinesischen und westlichen Wirtschaftsliteratur

Author: Lanfen Guo

Publisher: Otto Harrassowitz Verlag

ISBN: 9783447056434

Category: History

Page: 272

View: 7287

In uber 100 in chinesischer Sprache erschienenen Werken uber die 36 Strategeme in der Wirtschaft werden unzahlige Beispiele von Strategemanwendungen aus der wirtschaftlichen Praxis gesammelt und analysiert. Kein einziges dieser Bucher wurde bisher in eine europaische Sprache ubersetzt. Die Autorin stellt in ihrer Freiburger Dissertation die chinesischen Werke zum Thema "36 Strategeme und Wirtschaft" vor und bewertet sie. Sie untersucht die wenigen in westlichen Sprachen veroffentlichten Werke zu demselben Thema. Ein Vergleich zwischen den chinesischen und deutschen Buchern zum Thema schliesst sich an. So soll die chinesische Sicht der Strategemanwendung in der Wirtschaft dargestellt und die Frage einer sinnvollen und angemessenen Ubertragung der 36 Strategeme in den Wirtschaftsalltag evaluiert werden mit dem Ziel, im Westen dem Mangel an Verstandnis fur chinesische List entgegenzuwirken und so die Kommunikation mit chinesischen Geschaftspartnern zu verbessern. Im Schlussteil der Doktorarbeit steht die durch Interviews vor Ort ermittelte Realitat der Strategemanwendung im chinesischen Unternehmensmanagement im Mittelpunkt. Guo Lanfens Beitrag konnte westlichen Geschaftsleuten beim Umgang mit Chinesen helfen, ihre Chancen im aktuellen wirtschaftlichen Wettbewerb zu verbessern.

Lexicology

an international handbook on the nature and structure of words and vocabularies

Author: D. A. Cruse

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter

ISBN: 9783110171471

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 1001

View: 1718

The handbook identifies and deals with the following aims for academic progression and practical/theoretical research: the establishment and maintenance of an independent profile for the discipline of lexicology the collection and documentation of up-to-date knowledge in the field of lexicology the documentation of research still outstanding and the provision of guidelines on concrete fields of study The handbook starts off with the two main sections: 'word' and 'vocabulary'. The sense relations act as the threads which bind these two sections together, because their ability to link words in pairs allows us to make successive inroads into the vocabulary. Moving from the term 'word' to the term 'lexical element' forces us into a more detailed investigation of phraseology. Detailed treatments of each of the ways of looking at 'vocabulary' are provided, in view of the ambiguity of the term 'vocabulary' (vocabulary in its relation to a natural language vs. Vocabulary in its relation to an individual [mental lexicon] vs. vocabulary in its relation to grammar [lexicon]).Similarly, synchronic and diachronic points of view are taken into account, in order to be able to arrive at an adequate description of the underlying dynamics of the vocabulary of natural languages. In conclusion the present state of lexicology made it necessary to deal thoroughly with questions about the discipline, its methodology and its links with related disciplines.

Die Erfindung der Globalisierung

Entstehung und Wandel eines zeitgeschichtlichen Grundbegriffs

Author: Olaf Bach

Publisher: Campus Verlag

ISBN: 3593398486

Category: History

Page: 270

View: 1263

Der Begriff der Globalisierung wird erst seit der Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts verwendet. Wie er entstand und sich im Lauf der Zeit veränderte, vollzieht Olaf Bach hier begriffsgeschichtlich nach. Er zeigt, wann und warum der Terminus zur Beschreibung eines Prozesses plausibel wurde und welche politischen, wirtschaftlichen und kulturellen Phänomene es damit neu zu begreifen galt. Dabei rekonstruiert er die sozialgeschichtliche, imaginäre und temporale Bedeutung des Begriffs, der unser heutiges Bild der einen Welt, ihres Gewordenseins und ihrer Zukunft prägt.

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 1 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.

Water Quality Modeling

River Transport and Surface Exchange

Author: Steven C. McCutcheon

Publisher: CRC Press

ISBN: 9780849369711

Category: Science

Page: 344

This fascinating work is divided into two main sections. Part I reviews the basic principles of water movement in channels and the mass balance approach common to most models. It also covers the practical usefulness, model peer review, and guidance on model selection and calibration. Part II discusses flow simulation and prediction of time of travel, dye tracing and mixing, heat balance and temperature modeling, and reaeration and volatilization. This interesting, easy-to-read volume includes comprehensive reviews for the use of fluorescent water tracing dyes, longitudinal dispersion, evaporation and wind speed functions, prediction of saturation concentrations of dissolved oxygen, and reaeration coefficients. This book furnishes the reader with appendices which provide a synopsis of available computer models and gives a comprehensive listing of methods used to measure flow rates in rivers, tributaries, and pipes and channels introducing wastewaters into streams. This volume is a valuable, indispensable reference for all researchers, instructors, students in advanced environmental modeling courses, and practicing engineers.
