Dieser Sammelband enthält Beiträge, die im Februar 2008 in Rom auf der 3. internationalen Tagung Deutsche Sprachwissenschaft in Italien in der AG Valenz und Deutsch als Fremdsprache als Vorträge gehalten worden sind. In allen Beiträgen sind Fragen zur Valenz und zu Deutsch als Fremdsprache zentral, aber zugleich ist das Themenspektrum weit gefächert, da in jedem Einzelbeitrag neue Schwerpunkte gesetzt werden. Aus einer übergreifenden Perspektive geht es um Valenzeigenschaften, Argumentstrukturen und Wortartenzugehörigkeit, um Valenzgrammatik und traditionelle Grammatik in DaF-Lehrwerken, um die vermehrte Berücksichtigung der Satzinhalte bei der Satzanalyse, um die regelbasierte Erfassung von konstruktionellen Varianten vs. den idiosynkratischen Charakter von Valenz, um die vielfältigen Verwendungsmöglichkeiten des Verbs «machen» in Verbindung mit einem Adjektiv. Aus der Perspektive einzelner Muttersprachen geht es um Schwierigkeiten von englischen Muttersprachlern im Grammatikunterricht, um die Funktionalität von Kasus im Deutschen und Englischen, um das Erlernen regierter Präpositionen durch italienische Deutschlehrer, um ein spanisch-deutsches Verbvalenzwörterbuch für Lerner der Grund- und Mittelstufe.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Deutsch - Deutsch als Fremdsprache / Zweitsprache, Note: 1,3, Universität Potsdam (Institut für Germanistik), Veranstaltung: Nominale Morphologie, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die vorliegende Arbeit verfolgt die Fragestellung nach der Unterstützung der DaF-Lernenden durch die ihnen zur Verfügung stehenden Lehrwerke. Neben dem Deutschunterricht, der im In- und Ausland besucht wird, nutzt man beim Erlernen von Fremdsprachen oft zusätzliche Hilfsmittel, wie Wörterbücher, Hörtexte oder Grammatiken. Letztere dienen als allgemeine Nachschlagewerke, wenn man beispielsweise selbst einen Text schreiben oder einen Test bestehen muss bzw. wenn man ein grammatisches Phänomen der Sprache verstehen möchte. Im Folgenden werden vier verschiedene Grammatiken auf ihren Nutzen für englische Muttersprachler untersucht und bewertet. Dazu ist es zunächst einmal notwendig zu klären, was den deutschen Plural auszeichnet und worin die Schwierigkeiten für die Lerner liegen könnten. Zur möglichst umfangreichen Darstellungen wurden v.a. die Monographie von Ana Marija Muster und das Standartwerk Richtiges Deutsch von Walter Heuer verwendet. Danach werden die in Deutschland bekannten Verlage Langenscheidt und Ernst Klett und ihr Konzept der Kurzgrammatiken hinterfragt. Im Anschluss folgt die Auswertung zweier englischer, einer britischen und einer amerikanischen, Grammatik. Die Arbeit bietet innerhalb jeden Kapitels Plateaus auf welchen ein kurzer Zwischenstand und eine Analyse des soeben dargelegten Beispiels realisiert werden. Jeweils zwei Grammatiken, die beiden Kurzgrammatiken, sowie die englischsprachigen treten dann im direkten Vergleich zueinander und werden nach Art und Weise der Darstellung und Übersichtlichkeit, sowie ihre Formen der Erläuterungen miteinander verglichen. Das abschließende Fazit zieht eine Bilanz unter die Qualität der beschriebenen Lehrwerke und bietet Möglichkeiten, wie die grammatische Hilfestellung, aufbauend auf den vier beschriebenen Lehrwerken, verbessert werden könne.

Valency occupies a special place in German linguistics. It not only features prominently in newer grammars of German but has also inspired a wealth of lexicographic work, often of a contrastive nature. The concept has also triggered a fierce theoretical discussion over the last 15 years which has, to the surprise of some, strengthened rather than weakened its central place in grammatography. The papers in this volume examine the continuing importance of valency as a dynamic force within linguistics - which has evolved in a number of directions in recent years and has stimulated much fruitful debate - and also offer insights into the practical application of valency theory in a number of areas. Several papers embody recent theoretical thinking, including its interface with general theories of human language, while the majority of contributions are devoted to the discussion of practical applications which involve a substantial element of contrastive study. Die Valenztheorie hat eine besondere Stellung in der germanistischen Linguistik. Sie spielt nicht nur eine zentrale Rolle in den neueren Grammatiken des Deutschen, sondern sie hat auch eine erhebliche Anzahl an lexikographischen Projekten (oft kontrastiver Natur) angeregt. Um den Valenzbegriff wurde in den letzten 15 Jahren eine zum Teil erbitterte theoretische Diskussion gefuhrt, die - und dies kam fur Kritiker uberraschend - seine zentrale Bedeutung in der Grammatiktheorie eher gestarkt als geschwacht hat. Dieser Sammelband zeugt von der theoretischen Dynamik der gegenwartigen Valenzdebatte: In mehreren Beitragen werden jungste Theorieentwicklungen angesprochen, u. a. die Einbindung von Valenz in eine allgemeine Sprachtheorie. Danebenbefasst sich der Band mit praktischen Anwendungen von Valenz uberwiegend aus einer kontrastiven Perspektive.
