Andrea Lieske's Nubi - Eine arabische Kreolsprache in Uganda: Ein Vergleich PDF

By Andrea Lieske

ISBN-10: 3640168372

ISBN-13: 9783640168378

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Afrikawissenschaften, word: 1,0, Universität zu Köln (Institut für Afrikanistik), Veranstaltung: Pidgin- und Kreolsprachen, eight Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: In dieser Arbeit beschäftige ich mich mit dem Nubi, einer arabischstämmigen Kreolsprache im ostafrikanischen Uganda. Hierbei kontrastiere ich seine Geschichte und seine Sprachstrukturen mit den in Derek Bickertons „Language Bioprogram speculation“ festgehaltenen Annahmen zur Struktur von Kreolsprachen.
Die Diskussion über die Trennung von Kreol- und Pidginsprachen sowie die Diskussion über den Sinn einer solchen Trennung will ich an dieser Stelle nur bedingt und in Kürze aufnehmen.
Die Verwendung dieser Begriffe erfolgt hier unter der vorausgesetzten Annahme, dass diese keine starren, limitierenden Einheiten sind, sondern verschiedene Stadien in der Entwicklung einer Sprache. Jedwede Wertung oder Qualifizierung einer Sprache durch die Einteilung in Pidgin oder Kreol schließt sich demnach aus. Das Nubi bezeichne ich, diversen Autoren folgend, als Kreol, da es eine stabile Gruppe von Muttersprachlern gibt. Dies entspricht besonders Owens, der betont, dass die Unterschiede zwischen dem klassischen Arabisch, den modernen Varianten des Arabisch und den Kreolformen des Arabischen zu groß sind, um als verschiedene Stadien einer einzigen Sprache betrachtet zu werden.
Zunächst stelle ich kurz die Sprache vor, ehe ich mich intensiv der Geschichte dieser „Kreolsprache“ widme. Auch die unterschiedlichen Erklärungen zur Herleitung des Namen Nubi/ Kinubi werden hier mit einbezogen. An dieser Stelle bot es sich auch an, einige der Theorien über die Entstehung der Sprache und ihre Wurzeln einzubinden.
Dem Abriss der Geschichte wird dann eine direkte Gegenüberstellung der Strukturen des Nubi mit einzelnen Aspekten der Theorie Bickertons folgen.
Anschließend stelle ich meine Schlussfolgerungen aus der Geschichte des Nubi und dem Vergleich seiner Strukturen mit Derek Bickertons Thesen zum Sprachbioprogramm vor. Auf den vorherigen Erkenntnissen basierend folgt hier das Fazit zur Frage, ob sich das Nubi in Bickertons Theorie einbinden lässt.
Dabei widme ich mich auch der heutigen state of affairs der Sprache und der Sprecher eingehend. Die verschiedenen Annahmen zur zukünftigen Entwicklung des Nubi finden hier ebenfalls Raum.

ISBN-13: 9788868660352

"L'interesse in keeping with Gramsci mi ha accompagnato in step with buona parte della mia esistenza, da quando los angeles mia carissima sorella Liliana mi donò le Lettere nella prima edizione (...). In questo lungo arco di pace ho seguito con attenzione l. a. 'fortuna' di Gramsci: in Italia, nel periodo tra los angeles prima apparizione dei Quaderni e l. a. fase di 'oblio' degli anni '90, period stata prodotta una grande mole di scritti sul pensiero del comunista sardo con interpretazioni assorted e anche discordi, una 'contesa' appunto, mentre l. a. ricostruzione della vita e dello svolgimento del pensiero risultava carente according to difetto di documentazione biografica e di analisi storico-filologica. Così, mentre il confronto con Gramsci si svolgeva in una dimensione globale, los angeles 'storia' di Gramsci in quegli anni, nonostante l'impegno di uno storico come Spriano, non veniva indagata e i difficili tentativi di penetrare los angeles zona d'ombra venivano considerati con sospetto quasi fossero diretti a mettere in discussione l. a. 'storia sacra' del Partito nel suo punto critico più delicato, il rapporto tra Gramsci e Togliatti."
