This bibliography presents the literature on the systematic issues involved in research on word formation, etymology, semasiology, onomasiology, and loanword strata in all Indo-Germanic languages, past and present, in as complete a way as possible. It is designed not only as a resource for Indo-Germanic studies proper but is of equal relevance to classical studies, Germanic studies, English studies, Romance studies, Slavonic studies, and Indology. Various indexes guide the reader through the extensive material. In the interests of research convenience, the CD-ROM included contains a cross-referential, fully hyperlinked PDF file identical with the text and the pagination of the book.

This book continues Julie Coleman's acclaimed history of dictionaries of English slang and cant. It describes the increasingly systematic and scholarly way in which such terms were recorded and classified in the UK, the USA, Australia, and elsewhere, and the huge growth in the publication of and public appetite for dictionaries, glossaries, and guides to the distinctive vocabularies of different social groups, classes, districts, regions, and nations. Dr Coleman describes the origins of words and phrases and explores their history. By copious example she shows how they cast light on everyday life across the globe - from settlers in Canada and Australia and cockneys in London to gang-members in New York and soldiers fighting in the Boer and First World Wars - as well as on the operations of the narcotics trade and the entertainment business and the lives of those attending American colleges and British public schools. The slang lexicographers were a colourful bunch. Those featured in this book include spiritualists, aristocrats, socialists, journalists, psychiatrists, school-boys, criminals, hoboes, police officers, and a serial bigamist. One provided the inspiration for Robert Lewis Stevenson's Long John Silver. Another was allegedly killed by a pork pie. Julie Coleman's account will interest historians of language, crime, poverty, sexuality, and the criminal underworld.

Das Sprechen und Schreiben Jugendlicher ist durch eine große Variationsbreite an Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten gekennzeichnet, die u.a. in der Heterogenität der Jugendgruppen selbst sowie in den stetigen Veränderungen der Sprachgebrauchsweisen Jugendlicher fußt. Diese sprachliche Variabilität in Jugendkommunikation und ihre Dynamik im Zusammenhang mit dem gesellschaftlichen Wandel vor dem Hintergrund innerer und äußerer Mehrsprachigkeit stellt die Forschung vor immer neue Fragen. Das zweibändige Referenzwerk bündelt die aktuelle internationale Forschung zum Thema "Jugendsprachen" und stellt sie in ihrer vollen Breite dar. Ausgehend von einer sozio- und variationslinguistischen Perspektive werden neben einer Fokussierung lexikalischer und phraseologischer Besonderheiten auch grammatische Entwicklungen nachgezeichnet und in Bezug auf pragmatisch-funktionale Wirkungen in der sozialen Interaktion sowie in ihrer Bedeutung für sprachliche Veränderungsprozesse hinterfragt. In acht Hauptkapiteln thematisieren die Beiträge den Sprachgebrauch Jugendlicher u.a. in urbanen und multilingualen Kontexten, in ruralen und dialektalen Umgebungen, im medialen Umfeld, in Lehr- Lernkontexten sowie in weiteren gesellschaftlich relevanten Bereichen.
