Was ist idiomatisches Englisch? (What Is Idiomatic English?)
Gottschalk, Klaus-Dieter
Linguistik und Didaktik, 6, 22, 139-148, 75
Discusses theories of Chafe and Halliday and of Searles regarding idioms in English. The former two show that the division into "old" and "new" information determines English sentence structure. Chafe's definition of lexical and grammatical idioms makes possible prediction regarding their syntax and function. (Text is in German.) (IFS/WGA)
