Behind the martial name 'system-oriented linguistics' lies the peaceful field of work of a functional grammar (theory and practice) with a medial, cultural, social, language-typological and language-historical and strictly text-related understanding of grammar. In this context, considerations

- on the relevance of linguistic-historical developments in describing and explaining contemporary German structures,
- on the contribution of grammatical structures or patterns to the interpretation of literary texts, and - on the contribution of grammatical structures or patterns to the interpretation of literary texts, are central.
