German term or phrase: Klammer
Abstrakt einer Diplomarbeit über Vorzeichen im alten Rom.

Als Stilmittel haben sie eine erzieherische Funktion, können quasi als „Warnschilder“ auf dem Weg in die Katastrophe verwendet werden, besitzen eine textinterne Klammerfunktion, können eine humoristische Komponente aufweisen und verbinden einzelne Vorzeichenmotive in charakteristischer Weise mit bestimmten Dynastien.
