Der Beitrag zeichnet die historische Motivation der Bezeichnungen für ‘Flohmarkt’ in den westeuropäischen Sprachen nach (Flohmarkt/Läusemarkt, marché aux puces, mercato delle pulci, flea market, etc.) und erörtert das Verhältnis zu den älteren osteuropäischen und orientalischen Entsprechungen (russ. вшивый рынок, türk. bit bazar).
changing nature of ME multilingualism; then some specific research questions
are introduced, such as the controversial issue of ME creolization, the frequent
use of code-switching in medieval texts, and the possible Celtic influence on
English. The remaining sections deal in some detail with contact-induced change
on the various linguistic levels: while foreign lexical influence is well established,
contact-induced structural changes are more controversial, since here a native
origin is often equally possible. In many cases, especially of syntactic change, a
in back-scattered electron (BSE) images or young domains less than
5 μm in width located inside an older core. In both cases, using age maps as a template for locating
in-situ analysis points will minimize the peril of age mixing and erroneous geological interpretations.
In addition to providing critical information for illustrating and interpreting the history of complex
polygenetic monazite, age mapping may ultimately lead to a better understanding of the processes
involved with monazite growth and recrystallization, and thus, even more powerful applications

A small piece of the Morasko meteorite, weighing 970 g, yields traces of its journey through the Earth’s atmosphere and of its impact into a mineral substrate, such as reflected in the meteorite’s crust. This is seen in the crust structure in the form of sintered as well as fusion and semi-fusion layers for which ablative niches are optimum sites. Subsequent weathering processes have resulted in significant mineralogical changes in the crusts. The meteorite crusts originated during polygenetic processes.

Upper Precambrian diamictites in Varangerfjorden (northern Norway) have been examined for evidence of origin, whether glaciogenic, gravity flow or polygenetic. Studies of geomorphology, sedimentology and surface microtextures on quartz sand grains are integrated to provide multiple pieces of evidence for the geological agents responsible for the origin of the diamictites. The documented sedimentary and erosional structures, formerly interpreted in a glaciogenic context (e.g., diamict structure, pavements and striations) have been reanalysed. Field and laboratory data demonstrate that, contrary to conclusions reached in many earlier studies, the diamictites and adjacent deposits did not originate from glaciogenic processes. Evidence from macrostructures may occasionally be equivocal or can be interpreted as representing reworked, glacially derived material. Evidence from surface microtextures, from outcrops which are believed to exhibit the most unequivocal signs for glaciation, display no imprint at all of glaciogenic processes, and a multicyclical origin of the deposits can be demonstrated. The geological context implies (and no geological data contradict this) an origin by gravity flows, possibly in a submarine fan environment. This reinterpretation of the diamictites in northern Norway may imply that the palaeoclimatological hypothesis of a deep frozen earth during parts of the Neoproterozoic has to be revised.
