Ernst Gluck kann in vielerlei Hinsicht als eine der eindrucksvollsten Personlichkeiten des ausgehenden 17. Jahrhunderts im Baltischen Raum gelten. Geboren 1654 in Wettin bei Halle (Saale) hat er als Pfarrer in Livland die Bibel erstmals ins Lettische ubersetzt. Er ist somit fur die Letten das, was Luther fur die Deutschen war. In Russland, wohin er als Kriegsgefangener wahrend des Nordischen Krieges geraten war, erwarb er sich grosse Verdienste als Grunder des ersten russischen Gymnasiums, und nicht zuletzt war er Ziehvater von Martha Skowronska, die spater als Zarin Katharina I. den russischen Thron bestieg. In diesem Tagungsband zeichnen Historiker, Theologen, Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaftler aus der Bundesrepublik, dem Baltikum und Russland in ihren Beitragen wichtige Lebensstationen Ernst Glucks nach, und versuchen so ein umfassendes Bild von dessen Leben und Werk zu vermitteln.

Interpersonal communication (IC) is a continuous game between the interacting interactants. It is a give and take - a continuous, dynamic flow that is linguistically realized as discourse as an on-going sequence of interactants' moves. Interpersonal communication is produced and interpreted by acting linguistically, and this makes it a fascinating research area. The handbook, Interpersonal Communication , examines how interactants manage to exchange facts, ideas, views, opinions, beliefs, emotion, etc. by using the linguistic systems and the resources they offer. In interpersonal communication, the fine-tuning of individuals' use of the linguistic resources is continuously probed. The language used in interpersonal communication enhances social relations between interactants and keeps the interaction on the normal track. When interaction gets off the track, linguistic miscommunication may also destroy social relationships. This volume is essentially concerned with this fine-tuning in discourse, and how it is achieved among various interactant groups. The volume departs from the following fundamental questions: How do interpersonal relations manifest themselves in language? What is the role of language in developing and maintaining relationships in interpersonal communication? What types of problems occur in interpersonal communication and what kind of strategies and means are used to solve them? How does linguistically realized interpersonal communication interact with other semiotic modes? Interpersonal communication is seen and researched from the perspective of what is being said or written, and how it is realized in various generic forms. The current research also gives attention to other semiotic modes which interact with the linguistic modes. It is not just the social roles of interactants in groups, the possible media available, the non-verbal behaviors, the varying contextual frames for communication, but primarily the actual linguistic manifestations that we need to focus upon when we want to have a full picture of what is going on in human interpersonal communication. It is this linguistic perspective that the volume aims to present to all researchers interested in IC. The volume offers an overview of the theories, methods, tools, and resources of linguistically-oriented approaches, e.g. from the fields of linguistics, social psychology, sociology, and semiotics, for the purpose of integration and further development of the interests in IC., Topics e.g.: Orientation to interaction as primarily linguistically realized processes Expertise on theorizing and analyzing cultural and situational contexts where linguistic processes are realized Expertise on handling language corpora Expertise on theorizing and analyzing interaction types as genres Orientation to an integrated view of linguistic and non-linguistic participant activities and of how interactants generate meanings and interact with space Expertise on researching the management of the linguistic flow in interaction and its successfulness.

McLelland's pioneering study charts the history of foreign language learning and teaching in the UK over five centuries (1500-2000), taking German as her case study. From the first grammar of German for English speakers, published in 1680, McLelland traces the growth in interest in German for travel and trade, and its rapid increase in prestige in the eighteenth century as a language of literary merit, before German became established in schools and universities from the second quarter of the nineteenth century onwards. Taking hundreds of textbooks as her primary sources, as well as the pronouncements of teachers, examiners and policy-makers, McLelland considers the changing reasons for teaching and learning German, and the consequent changes in teaching methods (including the influence of the Reform Movement around 1900, innovations such as language laboratories, and, more recently, the communicative approach). She analyses changes in how the German language was presented, including advances in how the sound system and word order were described. Finally, and crucially, she considers how German culture and history have been represented to English-speaking learners, particularly over the past hundred years, a century of troubled Anglo-German cultural relations. A chronological bibliography of several hundred textbooks for the period 1600-2000 will serve as a stimulus for further research.

Working in the tradition of such legendary animal painters as John James Audubon, Walton Ford brings new life and vigor to the great legacy of artist/natural historians. The sheer visual beauty and superb workmanship makes a startling contrast with their sometimes violent imagery and trenchant political and social commentary on history, colonialism, and the precarious relationship between man and animal. Walton Ford: Tigers of Wrath, Horses of Instruction is the first survey of his paintings. This volume includes an essay by screenwriter Steven Katz, who describes the artist's formative years and developing interest in natural history. In his interview with Dodie Kazanjian, the artist discusses the complex interweaving of ideas, personal memories, and historical events that forms the imaginative and intellectual armature of his paintings.
