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.

Grammar and Interaction

Pivots in German conversation

This monograph provides a micro-analytic description of the structure and communicative use of syntactic pivot constructions in German. Using the methodology of Conversation Analysis, this work shows that pivots emerge in interaction in response to local communicative needs.Exclusively found in spoken German, pivots allow a speaker to extend an utterance beyond a possible completion point in a syntactically and prosodically unobtrusive way. Speakers utilize this basic property to promote context-specific actions: managing boundaries of speakership, bridging sequential and topical junctures, and dealing with different types of interactional trouble. Through a close examination of syntactic pivots as an interactional resource, this work shows that spoken linguistic structures can only be fully understood if we acknowledge the temporality of language and view grammar as usage-based and negotiable. This book thus contributes to a growing body of research at the intersection of grammar and interaction.
