Register Reading Circle

The register reading group meets every Monday from 12-14.

Procedure

We decide on one article per week, which is read until the next meeting and then discussed under the direction of one session leader.

Goal

The aim is to discuss the use of the term “register” and to get to know new concepts and models from different sub-disciplines.

  1. terminology: How is the term “register” used and how does it differ from our use?
  2. concept: Which models are similar to our register term? How can we clearly distinguish them (see “text type”, “functional style”, “style”, “text type” etc.)?
  3. Which models must be implemented for a theoretical elaboration of the register concept (“proximity-distance”, “oral-writtenness”, “narrative”, “literariness”)?

Feel free to sign up for the reading circle mailing list to get the latest news and join the discussions: https://sympa.cms.hu-berlin.de/sympa/info/sfb1412-circle
