By Werner Diem

English precis: In his stories on topicalization in smooth Semitic languages - topicalization which means components of sentences moved from their unique place to a extra well-known one for functional purposes in discourse - Werner Diem makes a speciality of the prestige pendens. prestige pendens is the time period for the placement of a noun extracted from its sentence, positioned firstly of the sentence and substituted by way of a private pronoun at its unique spot. The prestige pendens is a typical phenomenon in Semitic languages, and is thought of as a linguistically refined machine while utilized in writing. provided that the prestige pendens in Semitic languages has already been often good coated, Diem now takes a better examine the formerly little-noticed phenomenon of the generalization of the prestige pendens, average in more moderen Semitic languages. German description: In seinen Studien zu Topikalisierung in neueren semitischen Sprachen, additionally zu Verschiebungen von Satzgliedern aus ihrer Grundsatzstellung an eine diskurspragmatisch hervorgehobene place, widmet sich Werner Diem dem prestige pendens. Unter prestige pendens wird dabei die place eines Nomens verstanden, das aus einem Satz herausgelost, an den Satzanfang gestellt und im Satz an seiner ursprunglichen Stelle von einem Personalpronomen vertreten wird. Im Semitischen ist der prestige pendens eine ubliche und bei Verschriftung als hochsprachlich geltende Konstruktion. Wahrend der prestige pendens als solcher im Semitischen im allgemeinen intestine beschrieben ist, konzentriert sich Diem auf das bisher wenig beachtete Phanomen der Generalisierung von prestige pendens-Konstruktionen, das fur neuere semitische Sprachen typisch ist. Die Generalisierung kann von einer Einschrankung der Ausgangskonstruktion uber ihre Markierung als obsolet bis zu ihrem volligen Verschwinden reichen. Aus einer in Hinblick auf Topikalisierung markierten prestige pendens-Konstruktion kann auf diese Weise eine unmarkierte Konstruktion werden, die aber die Topikalitat des prestige pendens als nunmehr satzbeginnendes Subjekt wahrt. Die prestige pendens-Konstruktionen werden in arabischen Dialekten wie dem Kairenischen, aber auch dem neuost-aramaischen ?uroyo nebst verwandten Dialekten und dem neuathiopischen Amharisch illustriert. Alle Belege werden in Transkription und Ubersetzung gegeben, auf die Vorstellung des Befunds folgt jeweils eine diachronische Interpretation und ein Index verborum erschlieat alle behandelten Begriffe.
