Change of State

| Keine Kommentare

Arthur Schopenhauer once said: “Change alone is eternal, perpetual, immortal.”

We all know how vital it is for a language to „change“ and to be able to adapt to changes, but how do we actually refer to and express the fact that something is changing?

The linguistic session „Zustandsveränderung/Change of state“ at the XXXIII. Deutscher Romanistentag (22.-25.09.2013, Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg) is tackling the challenge of analyzing how different change of state scenarios are encoded linguistically.  For information concerning the session „Zustandsveränderung“ please visit the following link: SESSION „Change of State“

Travel suggestions:

The nearest airports are FRANKFURT (FRA) and NUERNBERG (NUE). From both airports there is at least one train connection per hour to Wuerzburg (see link below). From FRA there is a direct train connection to Wuerzburg.  Arriving at NUE you have to get the subway first to the main train station and then a train to Wuerzburg.  In both cases, landing in FRA or NUE, you will need approx. 1.30h to arrive in Wuerzburg.  A direct link to some of the airlines can be found here:  Lufthansa, AirBerlin, GermanWings, AirFrance, Iberia, AA, United,  etc.

As you know, train service in Germany is excellent, and you can book train tickets via the internet: BAHN.DE, TGV.COM, etc.

The official link for booking your hotel during the Romanistentag is: HERE , more hotels can be found on these websites: tourist information,,,,, etc. Please book well in advance as the capacity of hotel rooms in Wuerzburg is limited!
