in English, German

Results of PART II to IV are analyzed under the perspective of power theory of the German sociologist Heinrich Popitz. A communication process model - based on enforcement, instrumental and action power - is derived, which could empirically be revised, enhanced and criticized by means of the introduced speech act methods (PART I). From the theoretical point of view all basic features (from PART II to V) structuring communication in jeopardizing situations using alert systems are listed in a schedule.
