Causalities in linguistics


Explanation:
On first impulse I'd like to translate this as
'Causalities in linguistics', which I think is close to the meaning.

But then maybe I'm way off track here. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Explanation:
I cannot suggest a solution, so here is a piece of destructive criticism:

I think it should be kept in mind that the title of this course was devised by a linguistics expert. S/he must have had some reason for saying "Wirkungs-" instead of ´"Kausal-". In fact, I think that is the whole point: It is somehow about effects, not causes.

I do hope someone finds out what it really is.

All the best

Sirius makes a good point


Explanation:
I agree with Sirius that it's not so much the cause as the effect that is being stressed here.

When I first saw your query, I thought of cause and effect and interdependence. And I'd suggest using either "interdependencies" or "interrelationships" or maybe even "interaction". I know those words do not translate back exactly to Wirkungszusammenhang, but that's the sense that I get from the German. I'd drop the "context" altogether and looks towards interaction.

That's my two cents' worth. Hope it helps!

Explanation:
I think Tom Funke may have solved the problem - although we shall never really know unless someone reports back on the course.

"The dynamics of linguistics" might also work as a title.
