  • TEACHING NON-FICTION TRANSLATION: THE SYSTEM OF EXERCISES AND TASKS

    • Authors: Leonid Chernovaty, Natalia Kovalchuk
      Pages: 5 - 11
      Abstract: Basing on the analysis of the general system of exercises and tasks for translator/interpreter training, the authors offer a three-component system of exercises and tasks for teaching non-fiction translation. The components discrimination is based upon their aims, which fall into one of the three categories. The first one is related to the acquisition of skills and subskills, which are required for the translation process, but do not involve translation proper. The second category includes the translation actions and operations that can be automatised, while the third one incorporates translation skills, which are based on the actions and operations of the first two categories. Taking into account the said discrimination, the authors suggest a system composed of three subsystems: (1) preparatory exercises, (2) those intended for the translation automatic components formation, and (3) for the development of translation skills. The authors offer a list of skills and subskills required at each stage of the translation process (the source text analysis, the translation proper and the target text editing), as well as describe the content of groups, types and subtypes of exercises within each subsystem. The prospects of further research are outlined.

  • THE COMMON EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK OF REFERENCE FOR LANGUAGES: PAST, PRESENT
           AND FUTURE

    • Authors: Sofiya Nikolaeva
      Pages: 12 - 20
      Abstract: The article presents the results of seventeen years (2001 – 2018) study of professors’ familiarity with the "Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, teaching, assessment" (CEFR), including the related publications, and the academicians’ ability to use the developed  common reference levels of language proficiency, illustrative descriptors and scales in their practice. As known, the CEFR has been recognised as one of the Council of Europe key publications in the field of learning and teaching foreign languages in European countries, including Ukraine. The main achievements in the use of the developed guidances presented in the publication are analysed. A brief description of other Council of Europe publications, directly related to the CEFR, is given. The theoretical analysis of the publications is supported by surveys of professors from 18 countries about their awareness of the mentioned printed works contents and the ability to use the recommendations which are formulated. As a result of surveys, it has been concluded that the practical implementation of the Council of Europe scientific developments requires improvement, which in its turn demands special academicians’ training. Moreover, some practical references have been proposed in the aspect of the enhanced version of the CEFR publication "CEFR. Companion Volume with New Descriptors": on development foreign language curricula, programmes and exams.

  • STANCE AND CULTURE: A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF ENGLISH AND PERSIAN AUTHORIAL
           STANCE IN APPLIED LINGUISTICS RESEARCH ARTICLES

    • Authors: Mohammad Reza Hashemi, Hosna Hosseini
      Pages: 21 - 27
      Abstract: This study tended to investigate the effect of culture, as depicted in language, on the use of stance in the applied linguistics research articles of two groups: native speakers of Persian, and native speakers of English. The two corpora comprising the discussion sections of forty research articles from reliable journals were compared for amounts and types of stance. In order to find the cultural differences between native Persian and English researchers, the subtypes of stance devices adapted from Hyland’s (2005b) model were used. Results showed that the groups used stance markers differently; more specifically, they employed hedges, boosters, attitude markers, and self-mentions differently. Furthermore, culture affects stance features as the meta-discourse devices employed by the researchers in writing the research article genre. The findings have implications for EFL learners and novice non-native writers to know the conventions and patterns as thinking devices for effective writing in academic communities of articles.

  • APPROACHES TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A LITERARY TRANSLATOR’S LINGUISTIC
           IDENTITY

    • Authors: Michael Naydan, Mariia Ivanytska, Alla Perminova
      Pages: 28 - 34
      Abstract: The article discusses the development of the linguistic identity of a novice literary translator in the course of academic training. The authors claim that teaching literary translation presupposes creating an academic environment conducive to untapping the creative potential of translation students. The paper describes an experiment in which 30 Ukrainian translations of the prologue from Julia Franck’s novel “Die Mittagsfrau” executed by young translators were analysed. The outcomes of the research allowed for the identification of translation strategies and typical translation mistakes, and the dependence of translations on the translator's linguistic identity. The study proves the hypothesis that creativity comprises an indispensable component of the translator’s personal linguistic identity and can be developed in the course of professional training. This also allows the authors to highlight the factors that influence the formation of the translator's professional competence as well as outline perspectives for further research into think-aloud protocols provided both by experienced and novice translators.

  • UKRAINIAN BORDER GUARDS INTEROPERABILITY ASSESSMENT IN THE FRAMEWORK OF
           COMMON EUROPEAN BORDER GUARD STANDARDS IMPLEMENTATION

    • Authors: Andrii Balendr, Oksana Komarnytska, Ihor Bloshchynskyi
      Pages: 35 - 43
      Abstract: The paper reports on an innovative approach to evaluate the level of harmonisation of Ukrainian border guards training with the common standards for border guarding in the European Union (EU) member-states. There are different types of borders and different organisational structures in border guard agencies in the EU. The authors present the results of a research aimed at analysing the level of interoperability of Ukrainian border guards. In case of border guards’ training, interoperability stands for their level of professional readiness for joint actions with representatives of foreign border guard authorities. For this purpose, the EU border guard agencies under the supervision of the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex Agency) introduced the Interoperability Assessment Program (IAP), as the means to assess, first of all, the level of integration of the Common Core Curriculum (CCC) for basic border guards’ training into border guard authorities’ national curricula. The programme’s results provide information on the degree to which the CCC meets the requirements regarding its content. The overall CCC implementation at the NASBGSU was 77.5%, namely: by modules (General Studies – 95%; Land Border Module – 75%; Air Border Module – 81%; Sea Border Module – 58,6%); by content (General studies – 96%; Legislation – 73,9%; Practice – 80,8%). The results of the evaluation held at the National Academy of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine named after Bohdan Khmelnytskyi, involving cadets of the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Humanities showed that Ukrainian border guards and their system of education and training are in line with the EU member-states’ common standards and the Ukrainian border guard agency personnel can be effectively used for the various operational and service activities of protecting different border sectors.

  • IMPLEMENTATION OF GRAMMAR-TRANSLATION METHOD OF TEACHING FOREIGN LANGUAGES
           IN ENGLISH TEXTBOOKS OF BUKOVYNA (1872-1900)

    • Authors: Bohdana Labinska, Oksana Tumak
      Pages: 44 - 48
      Abstract: The article describes the features of teaching English in Bukovyna (a region in western Ukraine, which was a part of former Austro-Hungarian Empire) in the late 19 century and the manifestation of the European leading pedagogical ideas in English textbooks of the period. The emergence of the English language teaching methodology in Bukovyna is reflected in the school curricula of the region. The functions of foreign language textbooks are presented, which include: communicative; informational; organisational and managerial; developing and educating. English textbooks have been analysed according to these functions and criteria developed in modern methodology. The two main groups of English textbooks were differentiated: grammar references and readers. It was found that the structure and content of English textbooks corresponded to the curriculum approved by the Austro-Hungarian Ministry of Culture and Education. A lot of attention was paid to grammar material which was presented in German (the official language of the Empire) in the form of rules and commentaries; the exercises were mainly translational, reproductive and non-communicative. The reader included literary excerpts of different genres without providing pre-reading or post-reading tasks. The textbooks analysis proved the use of the approaches and principles of the grammar-translation method of teaching foreign languages which implied predominance of learning grammar, writing and translation over speaking.

  • TEACHING COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES TO THE COMPUTER PROGRAMMING STUDENTS

    • Authors: Nataliya Mykytenko, Nataliia Rozhak, Iryna Semeriak
      Pages: 49 - 54
      Abstract: The successful functioning of computer programming specialists largely depends on their level of communicative competence, so a university course of English for specific purposes (ESP), aimed at its development, can be exceedingly useful in professional training of future computer programmers. To optimise the process of ESP learning we have outlined the verbal addresser-oriented strategies (stimulating strategy, emotional activity strategy, evaluation activity strategy, cooperative strategy and strategy of self-presentation) and elaborated a system of exercises for their development. It includes the following stages: 1) studying general foreign language by means of communication strategies; 2) studying ESP by means of communication strategies. To validate the effectiveness of the system of exercise we conducted experimental teaching of the 1st and 2nd-year students of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics and IT Technologies at Lviv Ivan Franko National University in 2016‒2017 academic year. It involved 144 participants. Efficiency of the system of exercises has been proved on the basis of the results obtained from pre- and post- experimental assessment of students from exposure groups and reference groups. Growth rate in students from exposure groups significantly exceeded the results in students from reference groups. Thus, the efficacy of the suggested system of exercises used for developing communication strategies in computer programming students has been proved.

  • TURN-TAKING IN CINEMATIC DISCOURSE: LINGUISTIC CHARACTERISTICS AND
           PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS FOR ESP TEACHING

    • Authors: Iryna Lavrinenko, Iryna Shevchenko
      Pages: 55 - 63
      Abstract:  The article focuses on the issues of teaching turn-taking for ESP students in blended distance learning courses at B2 level. It lays the rationale for the use of film episodes of business interaction in distance learning highlighting turn-taking as an operational meta-discursive category. In multimodal cinematic discourse, turn-taking is performed by heterogeneous semiotic resources: linguistic, non-linguistic, cinematic codes and underpinned by intersubjectivity. Turn-taking strategies of initiating and responding types are viewed as a system of interactional dialogic communication management which includes discursive means of turn-claiming, attempt-suppressing and turn-yielding where each type is actualised by its own set of tactics and techniques. We claim that ESP learners need to know the main parameters for turn-taking in oral professional communication; such as the participants’ stance, speaker – hearer relations and their intersubjectivity, the transition point in a conversation, discourse situations, and specific semiotic resources. In cooperative discourse situations, turn-claiming and turn-yielding strategies are determined by initiating tactics of statement or interrogation. Unlike this, in conflict situations, turn-taking strategies depend upon initiating tactics of statement, interrogation, order, inducement and predetermine responding tactics. In asynchronous and blended formats of distance learning, the preferable delivery methods for this material include video recordings and digital games which facilitate receiving new information and motivate students to practice new communicative skills.

  • ELECTRONIC SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES AS A UNIVERSAL TOOL FOR DEVELOPING
           FUTURE TEACHERS’ DIGITAL COMPETENCE

    • Authors: Viktoriia Hrynko
      Pages: 64 - 73
      Abstract: The aim of the research is to study the opportunities of using the electronic social networks for developing future teachers’ cognitive, creative, communicative and collaborative skills. The research was conducted at Donbas State Pedagogical University. 90 future primary school teachers and 40 university lecturers are involved in the research work that includes the use of social networks for developing cognitive, creative, communicative, and collaborative skills while studying the university courses. The research results are presented as the comparative analysis of the indicators of future teachers’ cognitive, creative, communicative, and collaborative skills which were obtained at the initial (2014) and final (2018) stages of the experimental programme. The author analyses the research results according to five blocks: students’ preference and motivation to use electronic social networking sites; the use of the electronic social networking sites for developing the cognitive skills; the use of the electronic social networking sites for developing creative skills; the use of the electronic social networking sites for developing collaborative skills; the use of the electronic social networking sites for developing communicative skills. The author claims that future teachers’ digital competence improves while taking part in individual and group learning; in personal learning; while using social networks for the purpose of informing about the university events, for conducting extracurricular activities, non-formal and informal education, project activities etc. It was proved that the conditions, which contribute to the successful implementation of social networking sites in the educational process of higher educational institution, include an active, conscious and cultural use of electronic social networking sites by students, as well as university lecturers’ understanding and concern about implementing these educational digital resources in their professional activities.

  • PROBLEM-BASED ESP METHODS FOR TEACHING FUTURE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS TO
           CONDUCT RADIO EXCHANGE IN NON-ROUTINE SITUATIONS

    • Authors: Bogdana Bystrova, Ludmila Nemliy, Nataliia Paziura, Oksana Vasiukovych
      Pages: 74 - 79
      Abstract: The research aimed to study and experimentally verify the efficiency of the use of problem-based methods in teaching future air traffic controllers to conduct radio exchange in non-routine situations. The professional readiness to conduct radio exchange is viewed as a complex of professional skills and knowledge (communicative, cognitive and functional) enhanced by motivation. The study involved 67 university students of a bachelor’s degree programme majoring in “Aviation transport”. Tests, observations and specially designed questionnaires were used to evaluate the use of problem-based methods (role-playing, simulation of specific situations, problem-solving, case studies) in ESP study. The conclusion was made about the effectiveness of problem-based ESP methods since they simulate possible professional situations and promote communication between future air traffic controllers and pilots, thus contributing to the acquisition of professional knowledge and activation of use of standard phraseology of radio exchange and plain English in non-routine situations. As shown by the results of our study, problem-based ESP methods are effective in raising future air traffic controllers’ motivation to acquire Aviation English as they bring the learning closer to professional life.

  • INTERNATIONAL MOBILITY AS A MEANS OF ENSURING INCLUSIVE GLOBAL HIGHER
           EDUCATION SPACE

    • Authors: Iryna Myhovych
      Pages: 80 - 86
      Abstract: The paper deals with the notion of international mobility analysed within the context of internationalisation process in higher education as a means of ensuring inclusive global higher education space. International mobility is looked upon as a two-way process – on the one hand, for countries mobility is of vital importance since they are competing to attract top talent and thus benefit economically, diplomatically, and academically in keeping their academic doors open to students from all over the world. On the other hand, students’ interest in mobility programmes, international internships and other forms of mobility is growing and has become a crucial component of the current higher education landscape since having the experience of participating in international mobility programmes has an overall positive impact on the development of a wide range of twenty-first-century job skills that result in career promotion. Based on up-to-date statistics an attempt has been made to prove the following – as more countries around the world become active hosts of international students and implement national strategies to attract them, the competition for top global talent in higher education will intensify; as the result, the role of global student mobility and international experiential learning as components of internationalisation process will become more prominent. It has also been stated that as the context of higher education has gradually been changing in the result of international mobility process, comprehensive data is crucial for affirming institutional goals of enhancing internationalisation and correspondingly implementing new policies in order to meet new students' and competitive job market's demands.

  • FACILITATING INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATIVE COMPETENCE OF ADULT LEARNERS IN
           THE CONTEXT OF HIGHER EDUCATION INTERNATIONALISATION

    • Authors: Jan-Urban Sandal, Tetiana Kolenichenko, Anna Verbytska, Hanna Dyvnych
      Pages: 87 - 93
      Abstract: The article is aimed at the assessment of the educational needs of the active older adults, studying their motives to learn English. The hypothesis of the research is that effective formation of the intercultural communicative competence in active older adults is carried out on the basis of the specially developed educational programme “Foreign language (English)” and the communicative-oriented approach in teaching within the framework of lifelong learning. In order to achieve the purpose of the research, a set of scientific methods was used: analysis, synthesis, comparing, generalisation, questioning, testing and interviewing. Respondents were 64 active older adults who were the students of the Centre of education and social activity for elderly people “Second Youth”. The majority of respondents (51%) showed the increasing level of intercultural communicative competence after the completion of the English language course for ten months. The application of the suggested in the article model will improve the level of English competence, the motivation for learning English, the ability to communicate and interact in the intercultural environment, formation of positive and tolerant perception of intercultural features, the general level of self-confidence, as well as satisfaction of the need for extending communication with other people.

  • MEDIA EDUCATION FOR FUTURE MEDIA PROFESSIONALS: DESIGNING AND IMPLEMENTING
           A TRAINING PROGRAMME

    • Authors: Olena Yevtushenko, Tetiana Kovalova
      Pages: 94 - 104
      Abstract: The paper presents the experience of the media education project for journalism students at Sumy State University. The workshops dealt with different media categories (media agencies, media technologies, media languages, media audience, media representations) and necessary components of communicative competence (technical information competence, information competence, social information competence, technical media competence, media competence, social media competence). During October 2017 - January 2018, five workshops and seminars were held. For each activity, input and output survey was conducted to assess the extent to which the level of knowledge and skills of the participants on a particular topic increased, as well as how the participants evaluated the project. On average, 32 people took part in each workshop, 78% of them filled in the questionnaires (in total 140 input and 112 output questionnaires were analysed). The results showed that despite the high level of initial knowledge of the participants, the training course contributed to their understanding of certain media categories and other specific issues. The participants also pointed out the importance and relevance of the information for their professional activity. The survey of 29 regular project participants and 27 professional journalists working in the mass media of Sumy Region was conducted to assess the project effectiveness. The participants highly assessed their knowledge of media literacy. The students’ results were similar to those of professionals’ (in the assessment of knowledge acquired, understanding the notion of media literacy, determining the main tasks of media education and the most effective ways of acquiring media competences). However, the students evaluated their analytical skills lower and rarely applied them. Further workshops will be aimed at dealing with this issue. The analysis of survey results proves the efficiency of the combination of formal and non-formal teaching methods for journalism students. It is important both for the training participants and the universities as they have become more competitive and able to face the challenges of academic education nowadays. The experience described can be implemented by other academic institutions to improve the quality of journalism education in Ukraine.

    • Authors: Nataliya Mukan, Halyna Yaremko, Yuriy Kozlovskiy, Volodymyr Ortynskiy, Oksana Isayeva
      Pages: 105 - 113
      Abstract: Despite an extensive body of research the issues of teachers’ continuous professional development are of particular importance for modern pedagogical theory and practice. The article outlines the features of public school teachers’ professional development in Australia. The study employed a range of theoretical and applied research methods, namely comparative and historical, induction and deduction, logical, analytical, descriptive and statistical as well as questionnaires and interviews. The article specifies the functions of teacher professional development, its elements and components. It analyses the legislative basis and the genesis of Australian teachers’ professional development standards. The article identifies the specificities of teacher professional development implementation in Australia. The results show that teacher professional development is a continuous process of deepening knowledge, improving skills and competencies, forming values and attitudes. The methods helped in revealing the interconnection between continuous professional development and educational reforms, the forms, models and methods of CPD of Australian and Ukrainian teachers. The results of the survey showed the potential for the system of Ukrainian continuous teacher education development and the possibilities of Australian experience adaptation taking into account our rich educational traditions.

  • FORMATION OF STUDENTS’ ETHNIC TOLERANCE IN INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER
           EDUCATION

    • Authors: Marija Czepil, Oresta Karpenko, Alla Revt, Kateryna Istomina
      Pages: 114 - 119
      Abstract: Ethnic tolerance is one of key issues of global and national order and is considered to be one of the necessary conditions for effective professional training. The aim of our research was to determine the background factors of students’ ethnic tolerance, its components and levels. Using two methods – Tolerance Index by Soldatova and our own questionnaire – allowed us to determine tolerance level in students of pedagogical specialties of Lviv region universities in Ukraine. We identified some fundamental factors of the effective formation of tolerance: the acceptance of cultural and national features of an individual, the ability to constructive cooperation and dialogue regardless of ethnicity, the ability and desire to listen to the interlocutor and understand his point of view. In the process of learning, students acquire the initial skills of professional and social communication and master the foundations of tolerant behaviour. The formation of ethnic tolerance is facilitated by the following factors: family upbringing, positive communication with representatives of other nationalities, knowledge of cross-cultural differences, travelling to other countries, studying at a higher education institution.

  • MODELLING SEMANTIC DERIVATION: SEMANTIC SHIFT STRATEGIES OF IRRATIONAL
           VOCABULARY IN ENGLISH

    • Authors: Oleh Demenchuk
      Pages: 120 - 126
      Abstract: The paper focuses on the semantic derivation models of irrational vocabulary – a semantic class of words that denote the situation of experience that is not based on logical reasoning or clear thinking. The study shows the characteristics of the development of an irrational vocabulary semantic paradigm and reveals semantic derivation models of irrational verbs and adjectives in the English language. It is posited that semantic derivation strategies are realised simultaneously with the changes of the situation and actants profiles. The change of a situation profile suggests the shift in the experiencer’s vantage point, i.e. gnoseological (either perceptual or evaluative) position from which a situation is considered. The change of an actant profile provides for the shifts at the level of participants and their characteristics. The changes are thought to determine the types (models) of semantic shift strategies that underlie the development of the irrational words’ semantic paradigms. The analysis of the semantic shift strategies of irrational verbs and adjectives in English shows that the concept of irrationality may extend to the boundaries of the internal (occurring within the hierarchy of the person’s inner systems) and external (occurring within the hierarchy of the person’s values) conceptual domains. The study concludes that irrational verbs and adjectives in English may apply to the following semantic shift strategies: role (reduced to the changes of the participant’s type or structure), pragmatic (reduced to the changes of the participant’s communicative rank), deictic (reduced to the changes of the participant’s positional characteristics) and taxonomic (reduced to the changes of the participant’s categorical class).

  • ENGAGEMENT MARKERS IN THE FEYNMAN LECTURES ON PHYSICS: APPLYING HYLAND’S
           INTERACTION FRAMEWORK TO SPOKEN ACADEMIC DISCOURSE

    • Authors: Natalie Kramar
      Pages: 127 - 133
      Abstract: The paper presents an analysis of engagement markers in the Lectures on Physics by eminent scientist and Nobel prizewinner R. P. Feynman, based on K. Hyland’s model of interaction in academic discourse as stance and engagement. The Lectures were taught at the California Institute of Technology during 1961-63 and, having been turned into a textbook, are widely used by Physics students even today. It is argued that the Lectures owe their lasting popularity not only to the simplicity of explication, but also to Feynman’s masterful use of interaction devices, particularly reader pronouns, directives, questions, references to sharedness and personal asides. Reader pronouns are analysed in comparison with the MICASE-based reference corpus, with the most common you- and we-clusters being identified. It is established that reader pronouns, directives and questions in the Feynman’s Lectures on Physics mostly perform the functions of anticipating possible objections, eliciting prior knowledge, focusing students’ attention, stimulating their thought and creativity, while references to sharedness and personal asides serve to strengthen the lecturer’s communality with the audience, particularly through the use of humour. We draw the conclusion that Hyland’s taxonomy of engagement markers can be applied to spoken academic discourse in its entirety and can be particularly useful for the description of interactive styles of acknowledged scientists, supplementing depersonaliased corpus research in search for best practices in pedagogy.

  • DIALECTIC INTERACTION OF QUANTITY, QUALITY AND RELATION IN SIMILE DOMAIN

    • Authors: Mariana Oleniak
      Pages: 134 - 141
      Abstract: This paper attempts to shed some light on the problem of correlation of such ontological categories as quality, quantity and relation in similes. The matter in question is significant since it relates to the problem of anthropocentrism in language. It shows the speaker’s attitude to the information encoded in a simile by consciously choosing a vehicle via measuring a tenor’s salient feature against an implied abstract scale of objects, notions, phenomena, etc. that possess a particular quality to a certain extent. The nature of the ground of simile is described to be gradable, capable of being subjectively measured from the perspective of the speaker’s environmental perception. The gradability of a shared feature shown as a scale of potential vehicles lends itself to the interpretation as a fragment of the linguistic worldview displaying a range of scale markers typical of a certain linguistic community in a certain historical period of time. The polar opposite notions on an implied scale are depicted to represent a (proto/stereo) type and an anti-(proto/stereo)type typical of certain linguo-cultural domains in a particular fragment of a linguistic worldview. By moving from the explanatory examples to the analysis of empirical material the author concludes that the categories of quantity, quality and relation are intrinsic in every simile and manifest themselves in the choice of a tenor-vehicle pair that do not exist within simile other than in relation to each-other. The material described in the article serves as an evidence of language dependence on historical and social parameters. The paper explains the mechanism of creation of the congruous and ironic similes according to the universal process of simile formation where the unity of quantity, quality and relation are the key factors of its existence.

  • COGNITIVE DYNAMICS OF STANCETAKING IN RISK DISCOURSE SITUATION

    • Authors: Valentyna Ushchyna
      Pages: 142 - 149
      Abstract:  This article studies the cognitive dynamics of stancetaking in the discourse situations associated with risky behaviour and perilous decisions. The objective of this work is to find out what linguistic and cognitive mechanisms are used by speech participants to conceptualise a discourse situation as a situation of risk, and analyse the ways the stances on the discussed problem (here, the risk of addicting to FACEBOOK, as well as other social networks) are taken by discourse partners under different circumstances and varying communicative conditions. The overall theoretical framework for the study synthesises socio-constructionist and socio-cognitive approaches to discourse analysis of risk and stance. In the post-modernist model, speakers use discourse to construct versions of the world which are variable, functional and consequential. Gilles Fauconnier’s mental spaces theory (1994, 1997) served a methodological tool for re-assembling the ways stances on risks are taken in discourse interaction. Risk-taking has always been an integral part of human behaviour. We are constantly forced to make decisions that lead us towards unknown or uncertain consequences that can be potentially hazardous or even life-threatening. The study shows that the field of risk-taking in everyday life is extremely wide, embracing a diverse range of spheres such as household activities, gambling, sports, finance, medicine, technology or politics. Because risk pervades such a substantial part of our lives, it can be claimed as one of the fundamental concepts of the human conceptual system, thus, cognitive mechanisms of risk conceptualisation, as well as the linguistic ways of discursive stancetaking on risk have been determined, analysed and described in the present research.

  • NEURAL NETWORK PATTERN FOR ENHANCING FUNCTIONALITY OF ELECTRONIC
           DICTIONARIES

    • Authors: Serhii Fokin
      Pages: 150 - 158
      Abstract: The value of a dictionary is traditionally considered to be proportional to its physical volume, measured in the number of entries. However, the amount of useful data varies depending on existing hypertextual links across a dictionary. Therefore, its utility might also be calculated as proportional to the number of useful links among its structural parts which can interact in a similar way as neurons do via synapse links, provided that the number of links turns out to be exponentially greater than the number of entries. Today’s lexicographic practice, as well as an experiment held by the author with his own developed onomasiological electronic dictionary of phraseological synonyms “IdeoPhrase”, appears to demonstrate that the main criterion for establishing links automatically is the repetition of each kind of signs (stylistic labels, graphical word, metalinguistic comments). Automatically generated hypertextual links can be used for finding out semantic relations of different types among lexemes (synonymic, antonymic and others), semantic equivalence or similarity among lexemes in different languages (which is close to automatic translation), as well as compiling a new dictionary. The fact that generated relation established by а computer constitute new useful knowledge which has not been directly input by the compiler, qualifies this algorithm as artificial intelligence engine.

  • ENGLISH COLOUR LEXEMES IN J. K. ROWLING’S NOVELS

    • Authors: Iryna Mykytiuk, Oksana Lesinska
      Pages: 159 - 167
      Abstract: The article explores lexical units denoting colour in English. The study focuses on colour lexemes in a literary text in terms of their combining potential, structure, and stylistic properties. The undertaken analysis of 11 basic colour lexemes (black, white, grey, red, blue, orange, yellow, green, purple, pink, brown) testifies to their combinability with twelve thematic word-groups that denote: appearance, footgear, dress, headgear, fauna, flora, parts of the body, natural phenomena, objects, magic, substances, food. Sixteen non-basic colour lexemes (sallow, auburn, blank, swarthy, silver, livid, scarlet, gold / golden, blond, amber, emerald, aquamarine, violet, lilac, turquoise, crimson) demonstrate combinability with only five thematic word-groups: appearance, objects, magic, dress, substances. The prevailing usage of the basic colour lexeme black and non-basic colour lexeme gold / golden is explained by the general magical atmosphere created by J. K. Rowling in the novels featuring adventures of the young sorcerer Harry Potter. The analysis of word-building specificity of colour lexemes proves that compounding of the pattern Adj+Adj (white-blond; golden-brown; light-blue) is the predominant way of their formation. Stylistic devices involving colour lexemes in the analysed literary texts are used with the aim to enhance the expressiveness of the narrative pieces, provide additional characteristics to the people and objects described, produce a humorous effect, and arrange the rhythmical pattern of the utterances. Rowling’s choice of certain colour lexemes is illustrative of her individual author’s style.

  • ADDRESSEE’S FACTOR IN THE LIMERICK DISCOURSE

    • Authors: Olena Yemelyanova
      Pages: 168 - 173
      Abstract: The article deals with the analysis of the addressee’s factor foregrounding in the limerick discourse. The study demonstrates that the limerick discourse is characterised by an addresser-writer’s and an addressee-reader/listener’s reciprocality via idiosyncratic protagonists portrayed by an addresser-writer. A limerick presents a laconic mini-story that describes a certain comic and ridiculous situation or event that happened in the life of an unconventional character with no less absurd and unexpected outcome. The limerick discourse comprises two types of communication − the one between an addresser-writer and an addressee-reader/listener through the text of the limerick, and the other − dialogues between protagonists. The limerick discourse is marked by a minimum length of phrases, an associative conjecture, varied stylistic devices, which include an irony, a play of words, hyperbole, onomatopoeia, alliteration and others, expressive syntax constructions aimed at producing an anticipated  pragmatic effect on an addressee-reader/listener. Socio-cultural, mental stereotypes and an addresser-writer’s voiced attitude to the information content are traced clearly in the limerick  discourse, though broad context allows various interpretations by an addressee-reader/listener. Besides, rhyme and rhythm play an important part in an addressee’s emotional and semantic reception of a limerick. The correct pausation pattern and the right tempo of a limerick enhance an addressee’s percipiency.

  • LEXICAL UNITS REPRESENTING WORKING WOMEN IN VICTORIAN NOVELS

    • Authors: Anna Orel
      Pages: 174 - 180
      Abstract: One of the most prevalent issues of the Victorian era was the increasing movement of women into the job market. That was the time when the traditional female roles were reinforced and reconsidered at the same time. Women who were regarded as “Angels of the house” started to seek freedom from domesticity. The article explores the lexical units representing working women in Victorian novels. It highlights the major areas in which Victorian women were involved (household service, education, industry, outwork, trade, entrepreneurship, agriculture, art). The analysis is based on a number of methods, in particular on the lexical-semantic field method and the frame analysis. The socio-cultural commentary along with the extensive illustrative material enables the author to single out the lexemes describing female professions (lady’s maid, housemaid, governess, schoolmistress, etc.) as well as the most common stereotypes concerning working women in those days. The contextual environment study of 33 female job titles offers insight into typical actions, social status, as well as the inner life of Victorian working women. However, the less typical female occupations (doctors, politicians, etc.) can be rarely found in Victorian novels. The findings of the analysis may be useful for linguistic and cultural research of the Victorian era as well as for gender and feminist studies.

  • THEMATIC PROGRESSION AND ITS TYPES IN ENGLISH LITERARY AND LEGISLATIVE
           TEXTS

    • Authors: Marina Kizil, Elina Kushch
      Pages: 181 - 187
      Abstract: The focus of the article is Thematic Progression as a text and a genre forming phenomenon. Thematic Progression contributes to  the cohesive development of any text, the distribution of given and new information of which needs to follow certain patterns. Thematic progression patterns deal with the set of meaningful sense groups which constitute a coherent text. Basic thematic progression patterns are: simple linear thematic progression, thematic progression with a continuous (constant) Theme, thematic progression with derived Themes and thematic progression with a split Rheme. They are peculiar to many languages. However, texts of different genres and the same language exhibit different patterns of Thematic Progression. This indicates that Thematic Progression, its patterns and their varieties are genre specific. To prove this, the article dwells on the Theme progression patterns and peculiar features of their Theme-Rheme organisation in texts of literary and legislative genres. While linear-constant thematic progression patterning is typical of a literary text, a legislative text is mainly based on the constant-linear thematic progression pattern. Constant-linear thematic progression patterning in the legislative text contributes to its informativeness, argumentativeness, unambiguity, and detailed specification of the given information. In comparison with the legislative text, the literary text has a variety of thematic progression patterns made of linear thematic progression, derived thematic progression and elliptical progression types. Regular linear-constant thematic progression patterning employed in the literary text helps to unfold textual information successively that contributes to its coherence and more effective perception.

  • RENDERING FUNCTION FEATURES OF THE FRENCH COLLOQUIAL INTERROGATIVE
           CONSTRUCTIONS IN UKRAINIAN FICTION TRANSLATION

    • Authors: Andriy Bilas
      Pages: 188 - 195
      Abstract: The article deals with the problems of colloquial interrogative sentences having the function features in the source and target fiction texts. The importance of the research of interrogative sentences is defined by frequent use of questioning in the process of communication and a close connection of the problem of questioning with other sociolinguistic issues. The given paper outlines function features of the colloquial interrogative sentences on the material of J.-M. Guenassia’s “The Incorrigible Optimists Club” and its Ukrainian translation by means of the analysis of possible ways of their rendering into Ukrainian. The author takes into account many works devoted to the study of questioning as a linguistic and translation category, paying special attention to the place of interrogative sentences in the French colloquial speech. The analysis of the colloquial interrogatives functioning in J.-M. Guenassia’s novel “The Incorrigible Optimists Club” allows the author to conclude that translation difficulties are caused not so much by their text-functional features, but rather by their structural, semantic, figurative, and socio-functional characteristics, as well as by the asymmetry of the structural elements and register polyphony of the source and target languages.

  • THE TAXONOMY OF FORESTRY TERMS IN THE MODERN UKRAINIAN LANGUAGE

    • Authors: Oksana Hrydzhuk
      Pages: 196 - 205
      Abstract: The subject of the research is the analysis of forestry vocabulary. The purpose is to promote the enhancement taxonomy of forestry vocabulary in the modern Ukrainian language. For the analysis of the forestry vocabulary, we used such methods as scientific sources investigation, a descriptive method, methods of comparison, analysis and synthesis, as well as methods of classification and systematisation. Forestry vocabulary provided in the article includes terms, professionalisms, terminologised common lexical units and nomenclature nominations. We have revealed that forestry terminology contains general scientific terms, interdisciplinary terms and specific forestry terms. Terminological lexical units are understandable to everyone, but these lexemes are the obligatory component of the forestry terminological system, without them its integrity will be broken. We suggest paying special attention to the use of professionalisms that is caused by the peculiarities of the specialistsˊ activities and is associated with the use of a significant number of dialect names. Nomenclature names are used to designate as follows: wood species, types of cutting, means of the direct extinguishing of forest fires. Latin names of flora and fauna and taxonomic names are also considered to be the nomenclature names. The research has shown that these classes of nominative units (terms, professionalisms and dialect names) are applied simultaneously in forestry terminology. The need for proper knowledge of the terms and rules of their combination justifies the students’ expediency to study the peculiarities of forestry vocabulary taxonomy. Mastering of terms will help students avoid mistakes in their speech, and improve the quality of future specialists’ professional speech and also the level of terminological knowledge in general. The theoretical material developed is supposed to become the basis for practical classes and will be presented in future academic research in the didactic aspect.

  • STRUCTURAL AND SEMANTIC CHARACTERISTICS OF FOOD-RELATED NEOLOGISMS IN
           MODERN ENGLISH

    • Authors: Kateryna Karpova
      Pages: 206 - 211
      Abstract: The present article deals with an increasing number of words which have recently appeared in the English language due to the drastic changes in social, political, economic realms as well as science and technology. Constant technological and scientific progress as surely as active development of cultural, spiritual and everyday spheres of life may be a powerful stimulus for the continual enrichment of English lexicon. The English language is monthly enriched by new lexical units which are introduced into official dictionaries and thesauri in order to extend its vocabulary. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to provide comprehensive linguistic research of innovative food-related lexical units, collocations, expressions and notions as well as to observe productive word-building patterns used for coining new words. Firstly, we examine fundamental works on the subject of neology, neologisms and their word-formation types as a linguistic phenomenon. Secondly, the focus of attention is on structure and semantics of food-related coinages which have recently come into use. Moreover, we concentrate on blending as the most frequently occurring word-formation type used to create neologisms in the sphere of gastronomy and related domains. In addition, various types of lexical blends are discussed as well as their high degree of productivity. Finally, we make conclusions and suggestions for further linguistic investigations.

  • FEATURES OF EXPRESSIVE FEMALE SPEECH IN THE POLITICAL DISCOURSE OF SPAIN
           AND LATIN AMERICA

    • Authors: Natalia Petlyuchenko, Valeria Charnyakova
      Pages: 212 - 219
      Abstract: This paper represents a multimodal analysis of the paraverbal (prosodic and gesture) features of expressive female political speech in Latin America and Spain. The language corpus consisted of public speeches delivered by Spanish-speaking female politicians Eva Peron, Christina de Kirchner and Manuela Carmena. The article includes an overview of theoretical approaches to female speech studies and follows current trends in modern sociolinguistics, which, on the one hand, accumulate the classical techniques (particularly, experimental methods) of studying the gender-related specifics of the oral female speech based on social standing, age and professional affiliation, and, on the other hand, reflect the latest approaches to the contrastive analysis of socio-political discourse in the “Spanish-Speaking World” (Spain and Latin America). This contributes to the study of gender, speech effect and comparative issues. We offer an audiovisual analysis method for studying voice and kinetic means of the expressive speech of female politicians in Spain and Latin America. This allows determining the ethno-specific correlates of expressiveness in a speech of female politicians at the verbal and paraverbal levels and building an updated model of female political expressiveness based on the integrity of its verbal and paraverbal categories.

  • LINGUISTIC PERSONALITY OF METROPOLITAN ANTHONY OF SOUROZH (BLOOM)

    • Authors: Svitlana Shepitko, Mariia Smyrnova
      Pages: 220 - 225
      Abstract: The paper focuses on the essential problem of linguistic personality analysis. It aims to study language means representing linguistic personality of Metropolitan Antony of Sourozh (Bloom). The authors analyse the linguistic personality at three levels: semantic, linguo-cognitive and motivational. The linguistic personality is characterised through the prism of linguistic consciousness and speech behaviour, i.e. from the perspective of linguistic conceptology and the theory of discourse. The research results show that the linguistic personality’s cornerstone is the concept "BELIEF" which is interpreted by various confessions differently. The metropolitan mainly uses questions which can occur in the quotes used during a sermon that transfers a listener to a format of a polilologue. The preacher most often addresses the tactics of conducting a dialogue and the tactics of "thought-reading". As a preacher, Metropolitan Anthony of Surozh is a representative of Orthodox Church as a social institute, whose picture of the world is also influenced by the national picture of the world which reflects religious, historical, cultural and political presuppositions ofEnglandas well as those of 20th centuryWestern Europe. The authors state that the linguistic personality of a preacher experiences transformations under the pressure of secular society reflected at the verbal and semantic levels and, depending on a sermon recipient’s type of personality – at the motivation level.

  • COLOUR COMPONENT IN THE SEMANTICS OF ETHNOPHOBIC TERMS (the case of
           non-standard American English)

    • Authors: Ihor Honta, Tatiana Pastushenko, Nataliia Borysenko
      Pages: 226 - 235
      Abstract: The study aimed to identify the semantic and structural characteristics of ethnophobic terms with a colour component, as well as the conceptual basis and extralinguistic factors that have a role in their formation. Ethnophobic terms tend to emerge in the non-standard language, with slang making its core. Although often marked as derogatory or impolite, ethnicity-laden slang expressions form a dynamic and productive part of non-standard vocabulary, largely due to their pragmatic power. Ethnophobic terms used with reference to the largest ethnic minorities in the USA (Black, Latin and Native Americans) became the focus of our research. Given their prototypical nature and a wide spectrum of connotations, basic colour terms have shown the highest potential for integration with the ethnicity concept: an overwhelming number of ethnophobic terms contain explicit or implicit colour components in their semantic structure encoding the following colour categories: black, brown, red, yellow, and white. We have also suggested that in American ethnophobic slang, the universal opposition of black and white may have transformed into a conceptual opposition of "white" vs. "non-white" that has a variety of verbal representations. In addition, semantic configuration and evaluative power of colour categories are determined by the speaker’s point of reference affected by the stereotypes dominating their ethnic groups. Data analysis has shown that the morphological means of word formation typical of ethnophobic terms, including suffixation, compounding, blending, and abbreviation, are mainly combined with metonymy, metaphor, or both.

  • THE RE-ESTABLISHMENT OF IDEOLOGEME JUSTICE IN "GREY-ZONE" MORAL EMOTIONS
           OF A RAISING VICTORIAN IDEOLOGY

    • Authors: Iryna Pinich
      Pages: 236 - 243
      Abstract: The study investigates into the impetus of grey-zone moral emotions underlying the sustenance of intragroup power relations in the times of ideological transitions of the late 18th and early 19th centuries refracted in the fiction discourse of the pre-Victorian era. The article is based on the assumption that the lingual representation of emotional experiences defines the emotional conceptual structure of the people and establishes social rules for emotion display patterns. A qualitative content analysis of the pre-Victorian novel corpus has substantiated the working hypothesis about the transitory mechanisms of ideological shifts facilitated by the dominant emotional repertoire across the social groups of the time. The paper claims the centrality of justice concerns in the ideological potency of the emotional experience of envy, jealousy, resentment, and ressentiment. An in-depth co-occurrence analysis of lingual representation of justice-seeking emotional reactions testifies to re-establishment of religious ideologeme JUSTICE displayed in a whole-scale procurement of resignation and inhibition compatible with placating vice-related experiences. The study argues that the restoration of the ideologeme under conditions of fixed social stratification is aimed at the exploitation of the emotional kindling of waning religious ideology for the accedence of a newly rising secular Victorian ideology. The analysis of the interconnectedness of lingual representation of grey-zone moral emotional reactions has underpinned the conjecture about their correlation to the system of religious ethics in determining an explicit display of strong feelings of injustice as outward enmity, impiety, and apostasy.

  • SPECIFICITIES OF THE MUTUAL INFLUENCE OF CONTEXT AND ASSESSMENT IN FRENCH
           EVALUATIVE UTTERANCES

    • Authors: Halyna Moroshkina
      Pages: 244 - 248
      Abstract: The paper is focused on the study of the interconnection of context and evaluative utterances in French. The assessment of different aspects of the world is viewed as a considerable part of human cognitive activities. Considering this, in the paper evaluative utterances are analysed in relation to logical, semantic, pragmatic and communicative properties of evaluation as an element of a linguo-cognitive domain. It is emphasised that the pragmatic analysis is of great significance in the interpretation and explanation of positive or negative polarity of the utterance evaluation. The present article also demonstrates the importance of various semasiological and syntactic expressive means and stylistic devices in the process of highlighting the positive or negative evaluative effect. Following the principles of pragmatic analysis, the author outlines the language means realising positive and negative polarity of the utterance evaluation. The study also proves that the units being neutral at the language level acquire evaluative potential in context. The results obtained confirm the idea that the correlation between the evaluative utterance and its context helps understand the encoded in the evaluative utterance presupposition of communication being the speaker’s communicative intentions associated with his/her epistemic state.

  • LINGUISTIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CONSTRUCT “EVALUATIVE JUDGEMENT OF A
           JOURNALIST” IN THE UKRAINIAN LANGUAGE

    • Authors: Zoriana Haladzhun
      Pages: 249 - 255
      Abstract: The article outlines lingual features of the “evaluative judgement” construct, being new for the Ukrainian journalistic practices. By means of analysing the structural elements of this construct, the author defines its linguistic features as well as comes up with lexico-grammatical and stylistic means representing the “evaluative judgement” construct in journalistic materials. Considering the data from practical journalistic activities, the author presumes that evaluative judgements of a journalist are based on factual information and manifest themselves via vast linguistic means corpus, being much broader than the lawmaker has defined it. In the context of the problem, the paper suggests to view “the evaluative judgement of a journalist” as his/her subjective point of view, opinion on a certain subject, personal assessment of facts or events on the grounds of knowledge, experience, journalistic standards, and information obtained from open sources, based on factual information that can be introduced into media content with the help of linguostylistic means. As exemplified by media content, the author comes up with the conclusion that apart from using such linguistic means as hyperbole, allegory, satire, which are defined by the law, as well as patterns that express evaluation or uncertainty, emphasising information probability (for example, it seems to me, in my opinion, I think, etc.), the construct under analysis also manifests itself through the use of particular tense and voice forms, impersonal constructions, complex attributive groups, complex sentences, etc. The author suggests applying the obtained results to form professional competence of both students of journalism departments and creative mass media specialists in order to ensure secure implementation of their duty to inform.

  • SEMANTIC RELATION OF MERONYMY IN LANGUAGES OF DIFFERENT STRUCTURE (CASE
           STUDY OF SEMANTICS OF BODY PART NAMES)

    • Authors: Olena Materynska
      Pages: 256 - 264
      Abstract: The present paper investigates semantics of human body part names (BPN) in languages of different structure. The lexemes under study are characterised by a high level of polysemy, frequent occurrence and primary role in the processes of world perception and categorisation. The empirical data comprise 438 lexemes (expressing 1438 meanings), which were analysed in seven languages of different structure (related and unrelated) from two language families: Indo-European (featuring such language groups as Germanic (English and German), Romance (Spanish), Balto-Slavonic (Latvian, Ukrainian and Russian)) and Japanese-Ryukyuan (featuring Japanese). The data are analysed within the framework of meronymy relation and highlight the universal features of semantic change in the compared languages, thus presenting a model for more extensive and complex studies of the semantic potential of basic lexical units. The research is based upon the methodology of classical semantics and typology as well as contrastive lexical studies, and is aimed at revealing the nature of semantic universals and regularities in the process of BPN semantic development. The lexical units under analysis are generalised and systematically investigated using contrastive analysis and linguistic description, whilst their semantic structure is thoroughly described with the help of componential analysis. The paper focuses on the classification of their regular semantic change mechanisms and juxtaposes the cross-linguistic similarities as well as differences in semantics of body part names. The relation of meronymy reveals interdependence with that of polysemy. The introduced index of polysemy helps to compare the potential for polysemy development in the languages under analysis. The conducted research enables the formulation of semantic universals and regularities within BPN polysemy development in languages of different structure as well as the creation of a semantic typology of BPN in related and unrelated languages. The analysis is supplemented with the statistical data allowing for the verification of the results. The main principles of this research may be applied to different thematic groups of lexis, contributing to further development of semantic language typology worldwide.
