Stockhammer & Erthel (ed.): Welt-Komposita

Robert Stockhammer, Former and Honorary President of the ICLA Committee on Literary Theory, has co-edited, with Thomas Erthel, the lexicon Welt-Komposita (World-Compounds). Available with Fink Verlag, this German-language book offers some sixty chapters written in the area between the essay and etymology to test the hypothesis that there is no world without world-compounds, such as Weltgeschichte (world history), Halbwelt (demiworld), or Weltanschauung (worldview)—or, indeed, Welt-Komposita.
