Die Ökologie des Sprachraums

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter


The dominating property of the present report concerns an approach, which is exclusively based on discontinuities as the reliable observations. In what way the presentation is designed and the main assumptions are formulated is described within an ecological context. Furthermore, a system of computer programs constitutes the background for reflection. A perspective, oriented on the environment, is extricated through effective evolutionary processes, bifurcation, and loss of stability. With the achieved results, it is demonstrated that various context dependent structures and sub-structures have been differentiated and established. Finally, in its dealing with problems of complexity, the significance of the ecological approach has been made evident with the aid of model-oriented and topological expressed references to the well-known “Visual Cliff” experiments.
