In this context, a consistent differentiation is made between eponyms and deonyms in order to accommodate the disambiguation needs of the former in German. The use of deonyms will be exemplified primarily on the basis of scientific and culinary terminology, where deonyms (in part) perform different functions in each case.</p> Witold Sadziński Copyright (c) 2023 2023-08-22 2023-08-22 16 9 18 10.18778/1427-9665.16.02 On the realization of the standard and dialectal language innovations of the Early New High German in the text Hic notanter proscripti (1412–1450) from Jauer/Jawor. A phonemic-graphemic study <p>The article presents the results of the phonemic-graphemic analysis of the proscription entries from 15th century, which come from the book of city Jauer and were written down in the Silesian dialect of the Early New High German.</p> <p>Due to the analysis it could be proved, the text contains the standard Early New High German features as well as the dialectal structures and the sound changes, which are characteristic for the Silesian dialect. All the results of the exploration are supported with with the appropriate examples.</p> Piotr A.

Scientific corpus includes Polish Criminal Code and the following three translations: DE-IURE-PL (2019), C.H. Beck (2012) and Max-Planck-Institut (1998). The method used is comparative legal analysis. The results of the analysis may find application in academic teaching and be used in the develop­ment of courses in legal translation.</p> Agnieszka Pietrzak Copyright (c) 2023 2023-08-22 2023-08-22 16 37 46 10.18778/1427-9665.16.04 Syntagma in pronunciation training – prosodic units vs. syntactic phrases <p>The article deals with the prosodic competence of learners of German, and more precisely with prosodic units. It is not always easy for learners to correctly determine these units and consequently to set correct sentence accents. Lack of correspondence between prosodic and syntactic units leads sometimes to prosodic errors. The article tries to analyze these discrepancies between prosodic units and syntactic phrases in order to determine certain regularities.</p> Małgorzata Żytyńska Copyright (c) 2022 2023-08-22 2023-08-22 16 47 66 10.18778/1427-9665.16.05 Avoiding word accent errors, but how – on the automation of correct accent position in German among Polish students of German studies <p>The article deals with the recurrent incorrect accent position in the German words articulated by Polish learners, whether when reading aloud or speaking. This seems all the more serious because incorrect word accent (as well as incorrect sentence accentuation) can contribute to communication problems or even misunderstandings. The main problem here is the frequency of the errors, which are always corrected, but without success. The article is meant as a postulate to work out efficient automation methods.</p> Małgorzata Żytyńska Copyright (c) 2022 2023-08-22 2023-08-22 16 67 79 10.18778/1427-9665.16.06 The influence of German borrowings from the field of fashion on the Upper Silesian dialect <p>The entire Upper Silesian dialect is based on the Polish language system, and all elements from German are treated as borrowings. The main aim of the research was to focus on the issue of German loanwords in the field of clothing vocabulary that appear in the Upper Silesian dialect and which are listed in the “Dictionary of Silesian dialect” by Barbara and Adam Podgórski. The question of the assimilation of these borrowings was analysed on three levels: morphological, graphic and semantic.</p> Magdalena Tomecka Copyright (c) 2023 2023-08-22 2023-08-22 16 81 90 10.18778/1427-9665.16.07 „I am not and have never been a communist“: Klaus Mann and his relation to communism <p>Klaus Mann (1906–1949) belonged to generation influenced by the two World Wars, burgeoning communism, and rising nationalism. Political component in his work is very strongly articulated not only in novels and essays, but also in autobiographical work. This emphasises his fascination in times he lived, but most of all it expresses his own involvement in fighting the evil which in his eyes were represented by Hitler and Nazism. In Mann’s eyes communism was not solely represented as a political system, but rather an ally in his personal crusade. In the literature there is often a question asked whether Klaus Mann was a communist or an ideologist whose majority of opinions were in line with ideological assumptions and values of the communist system. Despite clear declarations of the author himself, it is worth to look into his inner development: from fascination through growing distance and eventually disappointment which resulted in detaching himself from the communist ideas.</p> Marcin Gołaszewski Copyright (c) 2023 2023-08-22 2023-08-22 16 91 101 10.18778/1427-9665.16.08 Documentary narration in German literary prose before and after the political turn of 1989 <p>This article focuses on documentary narration in literary prose, which is analyzed with regard to its function and poetics using the example of selected texts of GDR protocol literature and German documentary literature of the post-reunification years. The question of what constitutes the peculiarity of documentary literature and what caused its popularity in the pre- and post-reunification period will be explored. Furthermore, selected examples will be used to illustrate how the levels of the factual and the fictional intermingle and complement each other in the individual texts. The texts discussed in this article are narratives that remain close to factual events, but at the same time fictionalize them and therefore cannot be considered completely and unambiguously in either the category of literary fiction or documentary.</p> Elżbieta Tomasi-Kapral Copyright (c) 2023 2023-08-22 2023-08-22 16 103 120 10.18778/1427-9665.16.09 The image of a modern woman in the German supplements of magazine in Lodz in the interwar period <p>Supplements to German newspapers in Lodz in the interwar period promoted an extremely modern type of woman, in line with the latest world trends. German magazines „Die Welt im Bilde. Sonntagsbeilage zur Neuen Lodzer Zeitung” and „Illustrierte Wochenblatt. Beilage zur Neuen Lodzer Zeitung” registered changes in lifestyle and propagated them among Lodz readers. The fashion promoted by Lodz accessories and lifestyle did not differ in any way from the latest European and world models. It was an expression of striving for modernity, for changing the way of thinking not only about women, but about the whole society. Introducing modern ideas into magazines resulted in the dissolution of old and obsolete forms.</p> Monika Kucner Copyright (c) 2023 2023-08-22 2023-08-22 16 121 134 10.18778/1427-9665.16.10
