'German Grammar in Context' takes authentic texts from a variety of sources - modern German literature, journalistic and scientific writings, transcriptions of everyday dialogue and colloquial speech - and uses them as the starting point for the illustration and explanation of key areas of German grammar, particularly those which cause difficulties for English speakers. Each chapter deals with a key grammatical point, and begins with a short text followed by a detailed explanation of the relevant grammar, together with a range of exercises to give students the opportunity to practice the grammatical point in hand. The exercises are based around a particular topic so that students can build up their vocabulary at the same time as practising the grammar, and the focus is on everyday words and expressions which students are likely to use themselves. A key to the exercises is included at the back of the book.

Es gibt hervorragende Grammatiken und Syntaxen, die die Satz- und die Wortgruppenebene beschreiben, sowie bewährte text- und gesprächslinguistische Ansätze für die Modellierung text- und gesprächsgrammatischer Strukturen. Was die meisten dieser Ansätze mit der Schulgrammatik verbindet, ist die ‚von unten nach oben‘-Perspektive: vom Wort zum Satz und evtl. vom Satz zum Text. Das Konzept dieses Buches ist diametral entgegengesetzt. Die Grammatische Textanalyse ist eine funktionale Syntax, die das grammatische System ,von oben nach unten‘ – von der Text- (Textglieder) über die Satz- (Satzglieder) zur Wortgruppenebene (Wortgruppenglieder) – zu rekonstruieren versucht. Dabei wird ein sog. Leittext durch das Buch ‚gereicht‘ und hinsichtlich aller im Text vorkommenden Text-, Satz- und Wortgruppenglieder durchanalysiert. Die Leittextanalyse soll sowohl die empirische Anwendbarkeit des Ansatzes dokumentieren als auch ein Analysemuster liefern, um den Leser bei eigenen grammatischen Textanalysen zu unterstützen. Auf Satzebene wird durch die Unterscheidung statischer und dynamischer Satzglieder eine neue Satzgliedlehre vorgeschlagen, die die Beschreibung einer breiten Palette grammatisch konventioneller wie kreativer Textsequenzen ermöglicht.

This volume contains the complete collection of published and unpublished work on German grammar by Tilman N. Höhle. It consists of two parts. The first part is Topologische Felder, a book-length manuscript that was written in 1983 but was never finished nor published. It is a careful examination of the topological properties of German sentences, including a discussion of typological assumptions. The second part assembles all other published and unpublished papers by Höhle on German grammar. All of these papers were highly influential in German linguistics, in theoretical linguistics in general, and in a specific variant of theoretical linguistics, Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar. Topics covered are clause structure, constituent order, coordination, (verum) focus, word structure, the relationship between relative pronouns and verbs in V2, extraction, and the foundations of a theory of phonology in constraint-based grammar.
