Anonym: Language and Literature. A Corpus Stylistic Approach to Charles Dickens, GRIN Verlag GmbH,Sep 2013 ISBN: 9783656416999
Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Osnabrück, language: English, abstract: Early Corpus linguistics and stylistics began with Chomsky s approach to language. He explicitly stated that there are three levels of adequacy upon which grammatical and linguistic theories can be evaluated: observational adequacy, descriptive adequacy and explanatory adequacy .This revolution through Chomsky founded the basis for corpus-based analysis, a method which uses adequate examples to give introspection how a language works and how it is used by different authors. Corpus-based analysis offers new insights into studies of language and new computer tools and software make it possible to get access to a wide range of electronic corpora.In my research paper I will carry out a corpus stylistic approach to the language of 19th century author Charles Dickens. This means that I will basically focus on his special register and investigate his use of particular clusters as recurrent combinations of words used in his corpus. Furthermore, I will focus on A Christmas Carol (1843) as an exemplifying novel of how language patterns are used by Dickens. This masterpiece has the smallest number of words of all his novels, namely 28.541 , which renders it a special challenge to analyse. Moreover, it hasn t been analysed by many corpus linguists before which puts A Christmas Carol in the light of a nearly unexamined piece of art ready to explore.My thesis which will be developed in the following chapters would be that Dickens s novels, especially A Christmas Carol, provide a unit of meaning, their own worlds of text, in which Dickens s unique style can be sifted out, providing recurring clusters which offer a corpus work based on effective comparison.To enter the deep analysis to provide a well-worked out research paper I will start with a description and findings of corpus analysis. Secondly, I will spend a chapter on three-, four- and five-word clusters in the Dickens Corpus and especially A Christmas Carol with particular focus on five-word clusters. Moreover, I will introduce the five categories of labels, body part, speech, time and place and as if clusters and examine these categories in Dickens s Great Expectations (1861) and A Christmas Carol as two examples of a contrastive analysis. I will finish my work by concluding my previous discoveries.

Volker Lorenz: Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol in Prose" as the basis of an instructional unit, GRIN Verlag GmbH,Jun 2008 ISBN: 9783638954723
Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 1,7, (Institut für Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Literaturvermittlung im Englischunterricht, language: English, comment: contains a model syllabus , abstract: While the traditional use of literature at schools usually relies on interpretation and the existence of a correct way of interpreting the text, more recent theories like the aesthetics of reception focus on the dynamic interaction between the text and its readers, aiming at a type of aesthetic reading. Charles Dickens s novel of the miser Ebenezer Scrooge being visited by the three ghosts of Christmas and turning over to a new leaf is probably one of the best-known English novels; it is alluded to in many other pieces of literature, in films and even comics. This, banal as it may be, is already the first reason for choosing A Christmas Carol as a topic, since all the gags and allusions elsewhere would not be understood without some knowledge of Dickens s novel. Reading experiences also play an important role when it comes to motivation: other classic novels by Dickens like Oliver Twist, Great Expectations or David Copperfield, or their film adaptations may serve as a motivation for reading A Christmas Carol, or vice versa. Finally, apart from conveying a moral message, Dickens s story also portraits the Victorian age of Britain and its nuisances as vivid as only few other novels, which stays in mind far better than only hearing a report.

Dickens, Charles: Ein Weihnachtslied in Prosa Eine weihnachtliche Gespenstergeschichte, Boppard ; Bad Salzig Rauch 1948
Charles Dickens. [Dt. von Curt Noch]. - EST: A Christmas Carol <dt.> - "Ein Weihnachtslied" von Charles Dickens (1812-1870) erzählt die Geschichte des hartherzigen Kaufmannes Ebenezer Scrooge, dem am Heiligen Abend sein verstorbener Geschäftspartner sowie die drei Geister der "vergangenen, gegenwärtigen und zukünftigen Weihnacht" erscheinen, wodurch er schließlich zu einem mitfühlenden, sozial verantwortungsvollen Menschen bekehrt wird. "A Christmas Carol", wie das englische Original heißt, erschien am 17. Dezember 1843 und verbreitete sich sofort über die ganze Welt. Noch nie zuvor war die Wandlung eines Menschen so aufregend, witzig und berührend niedergeschrieben worden. Bis heute ist es das beliebteste Werk des bedeutendsten englischen Dichters des 19. Jahrhunderts und stellt - abgesehen vom Weihnachtsevangelium - wohl die berühmteste Weihnachtserzählung der Literaturgeschichte dar, oftmals verfilmt und auch auf die Bühne gebracht. Charles Dickens war für seine Vortragskunst genauso berühmt wie für seine Werke und er unternahm monatelange Lesetourneen durch das Vereinigte Königreich und durch die USA. Zu diesem Zwecke kürzte er seine Erzählungen und Romane oftmals auf eine vorlesbare Länge, so auch "A Christmas Carol".

Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol & Other Christmas Books, Oxford University Press, ISBN: 9780199204748
Dickens's A Christmas Carol has gripped the public imagination since it was first published in 1843, and it is now as much a part of Christmas as mistletoe or plum pudding. It is a ghost story set at Christmastime in which a bad-tempered skinflint learns the error of his ways. Ebenezer Scrooge hates Christmas and all it stands for, but a ghostly visitor foretells three apparitions who will thaw Scrooge's frozen heart. This edition includes all the original illustrations for A Christmas Carol and reprints the story alongside Dickens's four other Christmas Books: The Chimes, The Cricket on the Hearth, The Battle of Life, and The Haunted Man.. All five stories show Dickens at his unpredictable best, jumbling together comedy and melodrama, genial romance and urgent social satire, in pursuit of his aim 'to awaken some loving and forbearing thoughts, never out of season in a Christian land'.
