Der Beitrag diskutiert rechtspopulistische, menschenfeindliche Rhetoriken zu Fragen von Sozialstaat und Erziehung kritisch.

Rechte, nationale, xenophobische, antisemitische, rassistische, homophobe und andere Positionen aus dem Spektrum der gruppenbezogenen Menschenfeindlichkeit zu erkennen, fällt zunehmend schwerer.

Gender Representations Elicited by the Gender Star Form
In many languages, masculine language forms are not only used to designate the male gender but also to operate in a generic fashion. This dual function has been found to lead to male biased representations when people encounter the generic masculine. In German, the now predominant substitute is the gender star form (e.g., Athlet*innen).

Phenomena-centered Text Analysis (PTA): a new approach to foster the qualitative paradigm in text analysis

Despite its wide application, however, a clear structure of how such evaluation should be conducted is often lacking due to the complexity of qualitative data. As a consequence, highly differentiated category systems with small-step subdivisions of categories and sub-categories are often used, leading to a loss of context both among categories and for the content as a whole. The aim of this paper is to describe ...
Valence sound symbolism across language families: a comparison between Japanese and German
Vowels are associated with valence, so that words containing /i/ (as in English meet) compared with /o/ (as in French rose) are typically judged to match positively valenced persons and objects. As yet, valence sound symbolism has been mainly observed for Indo-European languages. The present research extends this to a comparison of Japanese-speaking and German-speaking participants. Participants invented pseudo-words as names for faces with different emotional expressions (happy vs. neutral vs. sad vs. angry). For ...
