In this paper, we elaborate a classification of weil-clauses and show that it can be used for teaching German as a foreign language. In order to elaborate the classification, two theoretical approaches are compared and combined: the three-dimensional model proposed by Sweetser, and the theoretical framework conceived by Prandi/Gross/De Santis, the last of which involves the distinction between cause and motive. The classification can be used as a grid for the analysis of weil-clauses and must be understood as a tool for corpus-based teaching activities.

Abstract

In this paper, we elaborate a classification of weil-clauses and show that it can be used for teaching German as a foreign language. In order to elaborate the classification, two theoretical approaches are compared and combined: the three-dimensional model proposed by Sweetser, and the theoretical framework conceived by Prandi/Gross/De Santis, the last of which involves the distinction between cause and motive. The classification can be used as a grid for the analysis of weil-clauses and must be understood as a tool for corpus-based teaching activities. In the end, transformations based on structural phraseologisms are introduced to highlight the final interpretation of the weil-clauses.

Der Artikel stellt eine Klassifizierung von weil-Sätzen dar, und wir werden zeigen, dass diese sich im Unterricht umsetzen lässt. In den Grammatiken wird davon ausgegangen, dass Kau-salität durch einen komplexen Satz angemessen codiert wird. Jedoch wird in unserem Beitrag aufgeklärt, dass dies nicht der Fall ist. Es werden zwei theoretische Ansätze zusammengeführt: das Modell von Sweetser und der Ansatz von Prandi/Gross/De Santis. Im Anschluss daran wird eine umfassendere Klassifizierung anhand einer Korpusuntersuchung im DWDS vorgeschla-gen, die als Raster für die Analyse von weil-Sätzen fungiert. Darüber hinaus wird anhand des Vergleichs mit strukturellen Phraseologismen die finale Interpretation von weil-Sätzen beson-ders deutlich aufgezeigt.
