[Time as Reflected in Language: Investigations on the Forms of Objectivizing Time in Natural Language]
Series:Studia Linguistica Germanica 135
Aims and Scope
Time is mostly viewed as a measurable natural phenomenon. However, it can also be understood as an interpretable cultural phenomenon with diverse organizing functions. The focus of the study is on the knowledge of time accumulated in the lexical, grammatical, and textual forms of naturally evolved language and the anthropological significance of this understanding for human thought and action.
