Title:Text Discourse Features in Southern Zazaki (Çermik/Siverek Dialect) - A Glance at some Folktales - poster
Abstract:Zazaki, as a North-Western Iranian language, reveals textual discourse features some of which are unique, others follow in line with related Iranian languages. This text focuses on the textual discourse features of folktales. They offer both anthropologic and cognitive-linguistic insights. Following the principle of linguistic relativity (a weak version of Sapir-Whorf hypothesis) both provide further clarity on the worldview of this people group. The investigation of these discourse features follows the pragmatic model of Dooley and Levinson (2000). Of specific interest are the information structures and the flow of information in sentence articulation (Lambrecht 1998). In order to identify the features which build up a story line the relevance theory approach in textual discourse is used.
