Writing Language History in German: Syntactic Semantic Analyses of Historical Statements with the Preposition “For”

Satzsemantische Analysen historischer Aussagen mit der Präposition "für"

This study offers a linguistic critique of German language history writing at the second metalevel of history. It examines processes of the linguistic construction of history by means of a syntactic-semantic analysis of historical statements using the prepositional group with “for”. It investigates the ways that the significance of past events is expressed in terms of its significance for something else (of greater significance).
