Daily Quote :
Such a wife as I want... must be young, handsome I lay most stress upon a good shape, sensible a little learning will do, well-bread, chaste, and tender. As to religion, a moderate stock will satisfy me. She must believe in God and hate a saint.

Hofmeister, Wernfried Sprichwortartige Mikrotexte als literarische Medien, dargestellt an der hochdeutschen politischen Lyrik des Mittelalters. Bochum: Brockmeyer 1995. (=Studien zur Phraseologie und Parömiologie. 5.).

This book costs DM 64,80,-; it deals with the procedures of finding and analysing (text-functionally) sentences which work as pre-accepted collective citations within texts of the medieval political lyrics in German. After a theoretical block (based on semiotic reflections) this new theory is 'tested' by applying it to about 40 texts. A rich register (including about 100, partly hitherto unknown proverbs or 'sprichwortartige Mikrotexte') rounds up the publication.
