Mitschreiben in Vorlesungen: Ein interdisziplinärer Forschungsüberblick mit Fokus Deutsch als L2

Wisniewski, Katrin

In: Bulletin VALS-ASLA, 2019, vol. 19, p. 153-170

Note-taking in academic lectures is a very common activity, which faculty as well as students consider to be of central importance. At the same time, L2 students perceive note-taking as a particular challenge. However, in spite of its relevance and a considerable tradition of research into (L2) notetaking rooted in cognitive psychology, the strongly language-driven activity of taking notes has...

Textbooks for secondary schools are characterized by elements of technical and academic language and place high demands on learners. For successful text comprehension, text complexity and individual skills need to match up. In school settings it is possible either to simplify texts or to give support to readers. In the following article, three extracts from biology textbooks used at secondary...

Les langues dans la recherche scientifique et son évaluation: quelques regards

Steffen, Gabriela ; Gajo, Laurent ; Darbellay, Frédéric

In: Bulletin VALS-ASLA, 2019, vol. 109, p. 93-110

Language and discourse practices play a role in scientific research and its evaluation, since they shape knowledge construction. Therefore, it matters in which language research is carried out and knowledge constructed. More precisely, engaging in plurilingual research practices instead of monolingual ones has an impact on the research process and the results obtained. That is because science has...

mawasiliano ya mradi. Wissenschaftssprache(n) in Forschungsprojekten

Pelikan, Kristina ; Zinsstag, Jakob ; Jeffrey, Roger ; Roekcke, Thorsten

In: Bulletin VALS-ASLA, 2019, vol. 109, p. 75-91

Publications are considered to be essential for scientific progress, and increasingly they are published in English. Collaborative writing takes place not only for the development of publications within research collaboration, it also runs like a thread through the internal and external communication of research projects. Written internal project communication is less considered within scientific...

Klimawandel, Emissionen, Immissionen und Dicke Luft. Dynamische Bedeutungskonstruktion zwischen Fach- und Umgangssprache in der öffentlichen Kommunikation zwischen Wissenschaft, Politik und Gesellschaft

Rothkegel, Annely

In: Bulletin VALS-ASLA, 2019, vol. 109, p. 55-74

Mixing specialist language registers and everyday language is a phenomenon that can be increasingly observed in public communication about scientific subjects. There are two questions of interest: (1) How can we develop a model for describing some dynamic changes of meaning within different contexts? (2) What is the impact of these possibilities on our understanding of science and...

Targonska, Joanna ; Prutscher, Daniela

The collocations are analysed on both a horizontal (i.e. syntagmatic) and vertical (i.e. paradigmatic) level. The following research questions are...

Das gemeinsame sprachliche Inventar der Geisteswissenschaften – Repräsentant von Einheit und Vielheit einer Disziplinengruppe

Meissner, Cordula ; Wallner, Franziska

In: Bulletin VALS-ASLA, 2019, vol. 109, p. 11-31

In the humanities, language is of vital importance as a tool for gaining knowledge, as well as for conducting research. However, in spite of its pivotal role, there is still a clear lack of (linguistic) research into the specific language of the humanities, at least as far as German is concerned. As a consequence, the teaching of (German) academic language competence in the humanities is still...
