Morphosyntax versus Pragmatics: The Definite Article in German Personal Names across Regional and Historical Variations

Der Definitartikel bei Personennamen in den regionalen und historischen Varietäten des Deutschen

The book examines the use of the definite article in combination with personal names in German (“der Peter,” “die Merkel”). Using qualitative and quantitative data analysis, it investigates the frequency, the contexts of usage, and the functions of the article as it occurs across historical and recent variations. In this analysis, there are two predominant factors that govern the use of the article: pragmatics and structure of the nominal phrase.
