This paper examines the use of allusions in article headlines, using the example of the coverage of German immigration. In the theoretical section, allusions are presented as a phenomenon that functions not only as a manifestation of intertextuality, but rather as a creative instrument in an interactive process between the author and the reader. In the empirical section, a typology is created by means of concrete examples, which classifies allusions according to the source range and by way of references to the ‘urtext’. The analysis results are interpreted and conclusions are drawn.
The article presents some possibilities that can be used within the framework of a linguistic discourse analysis. The empirical background is formed by the German and Slovak refugee debate. The theoretical basis is the assumption that we create our knowledge of the world in discourse contexts. An objective knowledge is therefore only possible through multiple perspectives. In the battle of the different positions, discursive turning points, so called agonal centers form are formed. These are exemplified here and combined with argumentation and network analysis to form an effective toolbox.

Between welcome and rejection. A contrastive analysis of the migration debate in the German and Slovak press The refugee wave of 2015 has triggered a new public discourse on migration throughout the EU. It is about a broad spectrum of standpoints between acceptance and rejection, which is expressed in the form of different key words and argumentation patterns. The paper presents the first results of a contrasting study of the German and the Slovak migration discourse. It is based on press article-based corpus analysis, starting from a multilevel model. This enables the determination and display of discourse-specific phenomena from the micro level (word and topos analysis) to the macro level (actors, topics).

Im vorliegenden Beitrag wird der Flüchtlingsdiskurs mit besonderem Blick auf transnationale Bezü­ge thematisiert. Die Grundlage dafür bilden deutsche und slowakische Pressetexte. Das Forschungs­interesse gilt dabei den Fragen, a wie die Einstellungen der jeweiligen Gesellschaft gegenüber Flüchtlinge durch die Sprache ausgedrückt werden, b welche Akteure den Diskurs dominieren und c welche Diskurskoalitionen entstehen. Konkrete Analysen werden auf Makro- und Mikroebene durchgeführt. Es werden einerseits zentrale Argumentationsmuster dargestellt, andererseits relevan­te Diskursakteure und deren Vernetzungen.Refugees welcome ? A contrastive discourse network analysis based on the German and Slovak refugee debateIn this paper refugee discourse with a special focus on transnational aspects is being discussed. It is based on German and Slovakian press articles that are made available in the form of text corpora. The research interest lies in the questions of, a how the positions of the respective community against refugees through language can be expressed, b what actors dominate the discourse and c what type of discourse coalitions arise between them. Factual analyzations are carried out at the macro and micro level. On one hand there are some central argumentation patterns demonstrated, on the other hand relevant discourse actors and their network relationships are presented.
