Vorfeldbesetzung im Wirtschaftsdeutschen unter Anwendung des topologischen Satzmodells

  • The author of this article analyses 50 articles from the field of business German and 50 texts written by students of business German. The article focuses on the filling of the 'Vorfeld' (clause-initial position), using the topological sentence model developed by Drach. The following types of texts are researched: newspaper and journal articles, textbooks of business German, essays by students, and Bachelor theses. The author hypothesizes that the students fill the 'Vorfeld' more often with the subject than is the case in the authentic German business texts, where adverbials and objects are also common in this position. Didactic methods are recommended which should help students to develop a command of natural sentence structures.
