Expressivity refers to a dimension of meaning that is difficult to grasp either theoretically or descriptively. This volume concentrates on the analysis of expressive phenomena in German from various perspectives and at different levels of linguistic description. Based on empirical-descriptive studies, it develops different theoretical and methodical paths to access the phenomenon.
