Das Konzept »Islam«
Eine diskurslinguistische Untersuchung
[“Islam” as Concept]
Series:Sprache und Wissen 14
Aims and Scope
The notions of Islam that are prevalent in the public imagination are founded and shaped by public discourse itself. This study examines the process by which perceptions of Islam are constructed using the methods of lexical semantics, discourse analysis, and corpus linguistics. This specific combination of methods illustrates the unique textual and discursive potentials of contemporary linguistics.
