Many syntactic elements haven't acquired a scientific therapy within the present literature or haven't been addressed in any respect. because the current works are usually not simply to be had, incomplete, or idiosyncratically offered, Tundra Nenets syntax has performed very little function within the concerns of recent linguists, even if extra descriptively or theoretically prone. The publication is basically descriptive: it isn't meant to deal with theoretical questions in keeping with se and the outline isn't really intended to be formulated inside a selected framework. notwithstanding, it identifies and discusses concerns that are of large typological and theoretical curiosity. the outline is richly exemplified. lots of the stated examples are the results of fieldwork performed through the in quite a few destinations. they're sentences produced by means of local audio system both spontaneously or elicited in accordance with questions posed in Russian. different examples are excerpts from unique texts.

Der Sammelband "Bilder - Kulturen - Identitäten" versammelt 14 Beiträge, die sich diesem Spannungsfeld bewusst aus einer interdisziplinären Perspektive widmen. Aus unterschiedlichen theoretischen, methodischen und disziplinären Zugängen werden Wechselwirkungen zwischen Bildern, Kulturen und Identitäten analytisch betrachtet und diskutiert. Das Spektrum der Beiträge reicht dabei von "klassischen" kommunikationswissenschaftlichen Zugängen über kunsthistorische Arbeiten zu politik- und medienwissenschaftlichen Perspektiven bis hin zu methodischen Überlegungen und theoretischen Reflexionen. Zusammengefasst zielt die Publikation darauf ab, die Frage: "Welche Wechselbeziehungen bestehen zwischen Bildern, Kulturen und Identitäten?” in den Beiträgen aus ganz unterschiedlicher Perspektive zu beleuchten. Dabei werden auch theoretische und methodisch Herausforderungen angesprochen, wie diese Wechselverhältnisse inhaltlich und empirisch erfasst werden können.
