Abstract

AbstractOn the threshold of the sixteenth century, publishers met the demands of a ready market: They provided a selection of German prose novels and adapted their publications to a broader, less homogeneous readership. Against this backdrop, the article discusses the still evolving system of segmentation (primarily punctuation). When punctuation was inserted into a text, it might have been the typesetter’s task to work out a system of usage. The typesetters reacted to this new challenge by using several, even contradicting principles in a bottom-up-process of bricolage: They separated prosodic, semantic, syntactic or memory units while simultaneously considering aesthetic demands (justification).
