  • Foreign Language Use in German and Turkish Magazine Advertisements: A
           Comparative Analysis

    • Authors: İrem ATASOY
      Abstract: Advertisements today are influenced negatively by the use of foreign language as a persuasive tool. This is driven by globalization and the expansion of international brands and multinational advertising agencies. Advertisers frequently use foreign languages to attract attention and to evoke associations and internationality. Foreign words and phrases in advertisements are defined as linguistic codes that can be easily distinguished and remembered by individuals because of their distinctive phonological and morphological features. Such foreign words and phrases are emphasized by using various visual codes (e.g., font, point size, uppercase/lowercase letters, and color) as typographic components. The use of foreign language in advertisements is one of the most analyzed subjects in the field of advertising language. This study seeks to examine the use of foreign languages in German and Turkish magazine advertisements. Adopting more linguistic and semiotic approaches, which treat language as a sign and advertisement as a message system, this paper focuses on the growing role of foreign languages in German and Turkish advertisements. The corpus consists of the first three online issues of Elle magazine published in 2021 in Germany and Turkey. The data are first classified quantitatively and qualitatively then analyzed in three steps applying linguistic and semiotic criteria. The first step involves the linguistic analysis of foreign words and phrases. The second step undertakes a semiotic analysis of the typographic elements employed as visual codes of foreign language usage in advertisements. The third step is devoted to a discussion and comparison of the results of the foregoing analysis.

  • The Balkan clitic doubling and its possible Equivalent in German

    • Authors: Teuta ABRASHİ
      Abstract: One peculiarity of all Indo-European Balkan (Slavic and non-Slavic) languages is object reduplication or clitic doubling. Since the German language does not use reduplication of objects, the aim of this article is to examine the possible equivalent in German to Balkan clitic doubling After researching the literature, two applicants could be considered as potential equivalents: the pronoun es and scrambling. There are two reasons the pronoun es is under consideration: (i) the pronoun es participate in a kind of a duplication construction when used in so called correlate function, and (ii) reduplicated object clitics perform some functions as the expletive pronoun es does. Scrambling came to the attention because some linguists suppose that both object duplication and scrambling are driven by the same information structure mechanisms. This article shows that object reduplication clitics and the correlated pronoun es can be treated as an equivalent to each other but only peripherally, in a few specific uses. While regarding scrambling, in contrast to some linguists, it turned out that object duplication and scrambling have no common features and are not always driven by the same language mechanisms. Scrambling, compared to object reduplication clitics, is allowed even if the object is an existential noun phrase (without an article). Furthermore, there are indications, that scrambling does not always assign the feature [-focus] as claimed and is not always driven by information structure mechanisms as object duplication does.

  • The Introduction of Gamification in the Teaching of German as a Foreign
           Language at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria

    • Authors: Olajumoke OYEDELE; Moses AYANKUNLE
      Abstract: Most Nigerian students of German are between 16 and 30 years old. This age group tends to be more interested in playing computer and video games than doing their home- and class work with traditional materials such as textbooks and workbooks. Younger students need interesting activities that are fun for them and motivate them to learn and, as a result, make progress and achieve rapid success in their learning. It is therefore surprising that gamification has not yet been introduced into the curricula of Nigerian higher institutions. As a result, there is hardly any research in the field of gamification in foreign language learning in general or its use in the teaching of German in particular. This lacuna in research on gamification in German studies in Nigeria led to the present study, which examines the introduction of gamification into German lessons at Obafemi Awolowo University. The study aims at initiating a targeted discussion on gamification in German studies and stimulating further scholarly conversations on the topic. Through this, the possibility of creating a didactic design for the use of gamification in German studies in Nigeria can be achieved. This study uses secondary data sources including articles, books and reviews about gamification in education or classrooms. Other sources include websites and blog posts. These sources provide useful insights from various studies on gamification and its use in education, especially in foreign language teaching, which help in drawing up suggestions for a successful introduction of gamification into the curriculum of Nigerian universities especially that of German at the Obafemi Awolowo University in Nigeria. The analysis of the data is based on a descriptive and content analysis.

  • Aesthetics of Addressee-Oriented Character Conception in Literature for
           Young Adults: Wie der Wahnsinn mir die Welt erklärte by Dita Zipfel

    • Authors: Ksenia KUZMİNYKH
      Abstract: At the centre of this article lies Dita Zipfel‘s psychological, character oriented novel for young adults Wie der Wahnsinn mir die Welt erklärte. It focuses on philosophical backgrounds, structural complexity, diegetic unreliability, aesthetic ambiguity, and multiple addressee orientation. Special attention is paid to intertextual allusions and philosophical pre-texts. Using theories from cognitive psychology, the article examines the special status of figures as mental models. Furthermore, it deals with the analysis of the complex topic of emotions of the main characters. Emotions are intersubjective, culturally, and linguistically coded text phenomena. The forms of manifestation and the genesis of emotions take the form of both thematization and presentation in narrative discourse. They can be implicit or explicit. Another concentration is on the mental events of the characters. Mental events are a special type of action, a change in the state of consciousness of narrated individuals. This study seeks to delineate criteria and conditions for mental events and emotions and develops techniques for depicting the consciousness and emotions of narrated figures. These cultural coded phenomena in the minds of narrated individuals are essential features of narrated works for adults. The article investigates how changes in consciousness are depicted in works for children and young adults. A final emphasis of the study is on the theories of the comic differentiation in Zipfel’s psychological novel for young adults and their artistic and cultural significance.

  • The Anti-Hero on Büchner to Koltès: A Comparative Look at
           Woyzeck and Roberto Zucco

    • Authors: Melike Saba AKIM
      Abstract: Woyzeck, written in 1836, is an unfinished play by Georg Büchner, the plot of which is based on the real-life story of Johann Christian Woyzeck, who killed the woman he lived with. His case occupied the German press for a long period. After an 18-month trial, he suffered a public beheading in 1824. Roberto Zucco, written in 1988, was the last play by Bernard-Marie Koltès. Its plot was inspired by the real-life story of Roberto Succo , who stabbed his mother and strangled his father to death. Succo committed serial murders in Italy and France in the 1980s; he occupied the French press, particularly in 1986, and finally committed suicide in 1988 by suffocating himself with a plastic bag. This study examines Woyzeck and Roberto Zucco, written approximately 150 years apart, by considering their structural parallels and how the anti-hero phenomenon altered depending on the zeitgeist. Based on concepts of classical Greek tragedy, including hamartia, anagnorisis, peripeteia, and pathos, this paper considers the tragic hero and anti-hero prototypes in these plays. The author also reviews the qualities of the tragic hero figure diminished or preserved through the reversal process of presenting the anti-hero. As a side theme of this study, the paper elaborates on the transition process from anti-hero to anti-character, particularly in modernist drama. Finally, the article contemplates whether the rules of classical tragedy work in this context and examines the tragic essence in the two plays by considering the anti-hero in the light of the figure of the scapegoat—pharmakos in Greek.

  • Adolescence – Name – Internet: How Do German-Speaking Girls Name
           Themselves on the Web'

    • Authors: Viktoria KAZİABA; Tatiana BURKOVA
      Abstract: The authors conducted the present study across onomastics and social-, gender-, Internet,- and psycho-linguistics. The paper analyzes virtual anthroponyms (so-called nicknames or usernames) that are result from self-nominations by German-speaking adolescent girls on the social Internet services Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Flickr, Pinterest, and TikTok. The study material covers four years (2017–2020) and examines 2,363 nicknames, as well as the accompanying personal metadata of 11–17-year-old users along with the results of online and offline interviews with informants. The paper seeks the main goal and hypothesis of t finding a correlation between the gender-age characteristics of adolescent Internet users and their linguistic embodiment in virtual communication in the form of self-nominations. The authors study and describe nicknames based on the positions of their semantic motivation and meaning, nominative potential, structural and grammatical design, and graphic organization. The linguocultural component of virtual self-nominations receives special emphasis. In addition, the authors provide the results of an experiment to determine the stability of nicknames over time. A descriptive linguistic analysis of the data reveals clear trends in the creation of self-nominations by adolescent girls. The authors discovered different specific gender and age markers through the lens of virtual anthroponyms: formation of self-concept against the background of striving for an emphasized individualization and simultaneous need for social acceptance, distinctly feminine manifestations, a tendency to positive or overestimated self-esteem, and increased interest in the pubertal phase. The users are equally inclined to deanonymize and to anonymize their personalities in the web space. However, in both cases, it is particularly important for girls to transfer their original self-nominative intentions to nicknames. The development of cognitive abilities and critical thinking by adolescent girls is manifested in linguistic creativity and involvement in the problematic or cultural context of interest.

  • Self-Control, Rationality, Ethics, and Mutual Respect: A Dominican Poet
           Addresses His Audience and Calls Them to Reason. Ulrich Bonerius’s The
           Gemstone (1350)

    • Authors: Albrecht CLASSEN
      Abstract: Fable literature from Greek antiquity (Aesop) to today, from East and West, has proven to be of universal relevance and timeless meaning, even if modern generations seem to ignore increasingly that genre as something old-fashioned. Nevertheless, the timeless value of fables finds particularly powerful expression in the collection of fables, Der Edelstein, by the Dominican Swiss-German poet Ulrich Bonerius (ca. 1350). Whereas many historians have commonly tried to identify the Middle Ages as a world or culture all on its own, determined by an alien mentality, maybe even inaccessible for us in hermeneutic terms (Jauss), these fables allow us to comprehend fourteenth-century people and their concerns and ideas much more intimately than previously assumed because they commonly address universal issues people have always faced in their interaction with society. The article offers first a critical assessment of mostly erroneous assumptions about the Middle Ages and then illustrates the universal concerns shared by that past culture and us today by way of a close examination of a selection of fables by Bonerius. We discover here remarkable examples of ethical, moral, but especially rational concepts about good and respectable life. Little wonder that the Edelstein exerted such a long-term appeal far into the early sixteenth century, and that I was then rediscovered and greatly appreciated by late eighteenth-century scholars and writers. Bonerius offers many fables in which he formulates many observations and comments that reveal a rational universality in their content.

  • Kann das doch weg' Dealing with the German Modal Particle doch in
           Albanian Literary Texts’ Translation

    • Authors: Blerte ISMAJLİ; Vjosa HAMİTİ
      Abstract: In linguistics, the translatability of the German modal particles is considered a popular study object, particularly because of their rendering in “particle-poor” languages. Thus, the present study examines the translatability of the modal particle doch in Albanian literary texts. Compared to German language, Albanian does not have a group of modal particles and can, therefore, be classified as a “particle-poor” language. In general, (inter)subjective language elements in Albanian, such as modal particles in this case, come to a full meaning only in the context of use. Therefore, the translation must take the context into account. When translating from German to a particle-poor language, other means of expression, such as morphological, prosodic patterns, or a combination of these elements, available in the language are chosen to express the particular modal nuance. These expressions can also include contextual-pragmatic means and the use of extra-linguistic factors such as intonation, voice pitch, sentence accent, gestures, and facial expressions. This empirical corpus analysis is based on two novels: Franz Kafka’s “The Trial” (Der Prozess) and Hermann Hesse’s “Siddhartha - A Poem of India” (Siddhartha – eine indische Dichtung), and their two sets of translations into Albanian. Examining two translations of the same literary text allows for a better understanding of the lexical and syntactical means used in Albanian to render the modal particle doch. During the corpus analysis, the translation equivalents of doch in Albanian were extracted and classified into omission, transposition, paraphrasing, and word-for-word translations, based on the common translation-theoretical definitions.
