Item description for Biomedizin als sprachliche Kontroverse: Die Thematisierung von Sprache im Ã¶ffentlichen Diskurs zur Gendiagnostik (Sprache Und Wissen) by Silke Domasch...
The German verbs verwerfen, nicht implantieren or abtten have the same denotations when used in reference to dealing with artificially-inseminated embryos; however, the meanings of these words are respectively different. The book examines, against the background of the debate about the introduction of pre-implantation diagnostics in Germany, the role of linguistic naming-- so-called thematizations-- in the public sphere. The study shows that these thematizations not only reflect linguistic controversy, but at the same time, precisely mirror the current societal debates.
