  • OVERVIEW OF PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION OF LINGUISTICS STUDENTS AT UNIVERSITIES
           OF GREAT BRITAIN

    • Authors: Natalya Bidyuk, Maryna Ikonnikova, Olga Komochkova
      Pages: 5 - 10
      Abstract: The article deals with the problem of professional education of linguistics students at universities of Great Britain. The authors analyse the role of linguistics as an academic discipline in Great Britain, outline recent trends in university admission campaigns of 2008-2016 which indicate a gradual but stable increase in the number of applicants wishing to pursue a career in linguistics. They focus on the analysis of degree programmes as defined by Frameworks for Higher Education Qualifications of the UK Degree-Awarding Bodies in the context of linguistics professional education, as also define features of curricula of professional education of linguistics students at British universities with consideration of the Subject Benchmark Statement for Linguistics and look at career prospects of future linguistics specialists in Great Britain.

  • THE VOUCHER PROGRAMME AS A CHALLENGE FOR SOCIAL WORK TEACHING

    • Authors: Tetyana Semigina, Oksana Pozhidayeva
      Pages: 11 - 16
      Abstract: The study presents the experiences of introducing the so-called educational voucher system for adults over 45 years old in Ukraine. Based on the content analysis of academic documents, the survey of adult students and interviews with educators, the study examines motivation, learning process and self-evaluation of the social work training among students who already have a higher education. The research findings demonstrate that the students over 45 years old were motivated to get an additional university degree in social work mainly because of a need for self-realisation, and not because of market demands. In the survey, 20 out of 25 respondents claimed that they had an idea of what social work was as a profession prior to beginning their studies and hardly are going to work within the new profession. Adult students highly prize positive in-class atmosphere and prefer to study in a group of peers; they more or less easily adjust to the new learning environment. At the same time, teaching had to challenge the expectations of adult learners with learning arrangements that are non-traditional for them. The research adds another layer to the professional debate on the social work education model by focusing on 45+ students, competences and ethical behaviour mastering.

  • THE ROLE OF CONTENT AND LANGUAGE INTEGRATED LEARNING AT UKRAINIAN AND
           POLISH EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS: CHALLENGES AND IMPLICATION

    • Authors: Mariya Leshchenko, Yuliana Lavrysh, Kateryna Halatsyn
      Pages: 17 - 25
      Abstract: At present, Ukrainian universities are immersed into current processes of internationalisation, academic mobility and engaging into a European context, that, consequently, give rise to numerous surveys on advanced pedagogical approaches to correspond the framework of general European language learning policy. The paper aims to describe and summarise the experience of Content and Language Integrated Learning implementation (CLIL) in Ukraine. With the view of objective assessment of the survey results, we considered comparing our experience, challenges and solutions with Polish universities experience since CLIL approach is widely used and made its own history with great outcomes in Poland. The qualitative data of our survey were gathered, evaluated and compared with those presented in published investigations of Polish experts. The key objectives are to identify operating CLIL models and strategies at Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute and to measure up functioning features of this approach by means of SWOT analysis. Moreover, the researchers disclose the approach advantages, drawbacks and recommendations for further discussion. In the paper, the authors also outline the peculiarities of ongoing coexistence and relation of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and CLIL in tertiary education in terms of aims, tasks, resources, teachers’ roles and outcomes. The research results show that ESP and CLIL are interrelated approaches, which both contribute to students’ learning motivation as well as language and field-related content acquisition; CLIL is a key factor for universities to attract students and take high rates in educational ranking.

  • WHAT LEADS UKRAINIAN UNIVERSITY STUDENTS TO USE WIKIPEDIA'

    • Authors: Nataliia Mulina
      Pages: 26 - 32
      Abstract: The Internet provides students with information from a great number of online sources. Wikipedia is one of the most frequently suggested by search engines and popular students’ reference websites. The purpose of the research was to study students’ use and attitudes of Wikipedia and to find out the patterns of Wikipedia use as an information source for academic purposes amongst different student groups in a Ukrainian university considering the language used. The results revealed that the overwhelming majority of students used Wikipedia and most of the respondents used it for academic purposes. Students were likely to value Wikipedia’s being short and informative for writing assignments at the beginning of their work. However, the findings suggest that Wikipedia’s usage is restricted by the coverage and completeness of the Wikipedia content in students’ native language and the level of their knowledge of English. We found that students’ major, year and mode of study as well as teachers’ approval can also relate to their use of Wikipedia in relation to university studies.

  • THE FORMATION OF INTELLECTUAL MOBILITY OF ENGINEERING STUDENTS THROUGH
           INTEGRATION OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE EDUCATION AND PROFESSIONAL TRAINING

    • Authors: Galyna Mikhnenko, Yana Absaliamova
      Pages: 33 - 38
      Abstract: In the world of rapid changes, the concept of mobility is becoming an essential development factor for professionals, and understanding of this concept is not limited to physical mobility, i.e. studying and working abroad. Among various dimensions of mobility (academic, social, professional, cultural, etc.) we distinguish intellectual mobility as a characteristic of a professional and consider the problem of formation of intellectual mobility of engineering students through the integration of foreign language education and professional training. On the basis of theoretical research and practical experience, we have determined the pedagogical conditions for the formation of this characteristic in a technical university: 1) use of interactive teaching methods as well as ICT to change the function of a teacher when he/she becomes the moderator of students’ intellectual activities; 2) development of students’ motivation for intellectual activity by considering their psychological characteristics; 3) integration of foreign language education and professional training, active use of distance learning courses and intellectual games. The effectiveness of these pedagogical conditions while teaching ESP at Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute has been checked through carrying out the pedagogical experiment and set of questionnaires and tests to define the level of intellectual mobility. As a result, we have developed scientific and practical recommendations at administrative, methodological and practical levels for teaching staff. The development of teaching complexes to ensure the process of formation of intellectual mobility of specialists in the educational environment of a modern technical university has been proposed to be a prospective direction for scientific research.

  • READING AND REREADING: INSIGHTS INTO LITERARY EVALUATION

    • Authors: Willie van Peer, Anna Chesnokova
      Pages: 39 - 46
      Abstract: In this paper, we argue that the long-term evaluation of literary texts rather privileges their formal and structural aspects, but to a lesser degree the content. As external and internal reasons for literary evaluation are distinguished, the latter are privileged while the former will only last as the themes and the external reasons remain, which means they are transient and do not lead to long-term evaluation of literary products. At the same time, it is the second type of internal reasons – the form and structure of a literary work – that plays a role and contributes to canon formation. Hence we present the results of some experiments in which two different groups of participants (university students and older people in a convenience sample) in two cultural settings read three texts (one popular fiction and two canonical ones) several times and answered the three questions derived from the “rereading paradigm” by Bortolussi & Dixon (2003). As an additional measure to check the participants reading habits, in Study 1 the ART test from Stanovich et al. (1995), adapted for a Ukrainian audience, was employed. The results, which did not corroborate the predictions, are discussed and confronted with some insights into the theory of literary evaluation.

  • TED TALK IN THE ESP CLASSROOM OF PHILOSOPHY STUDENTS

    • Authors: Svetlana Danilina, Viktoriia Shabunina
      Pages: 47 - 54
      Abstract: Using authentic materials in teaching ESP is part and parcel of communicative approach methodology. Unadapted materials bring the classroom closer to real-life language use and overall make language learning more meaningful and engaging for students. The needs analysis of Ukrainian students, which shows that many of them wish to continue their studies in English language universities abroad, makes the use of authentic materials particularly relevant, as they model the situations that students can potentially face in their future professional life. The presence of a vast array of authentic materials available today is both a challenge and a benefit for teachers, since they have to choose the ones which would meet their students’ needs and expectations. Based on an ESP class taught to philosophy students, this article offers a suggestion on how to approach teaching presentation making skills and provides the practical outcome of using a TEDx talk in the ESP classroom. The featured talk, which focuses on today’s perception of stoicism, was followed by some tasks to promote students’ critical thinking and facilitate their future presentation planning, as well as by the students’ own presentations in which they had to make use of the strategies discussed in class. Listening to the genuine presentation and using it as a model for presentations of their own follows the principles of CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning), which can benefit students by its explicit emphasis on the content and gives them a chance to acquire syntax, lexis, and discourse style skills as a by-product of content-oriented learning.

  • PREFERRED LEARNING STYLES OF STUDENTS MAJORING IN CHEMISTRY, PHARMACY,
           TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN

    • Authors: Tetiana Derkach
      Pages: 55 - 61
      Abstract: Research on students’ preferences in learning styles is a topical issue of modern education because understanding the learning styles promotes individualisation of the teaching process. The existing preferences in learning styles of students of four areas of training have been studied by the Felder-Soloman Index of Learning Styles. Technology students have the most balanced learning profile: the preference of any style in all dimensions does not exceed 70%. Future chemists and pharmacists are characterised by the apparent preferences of visual, sensitive and active styles (at the level of 80%), as well as a moderate preference of sequential style (~70%). Design students exhibit distinct domination of visual style (>95%) over verbal one (<5%). In three other dimensions, a moderate preference (60-70%) of active, sensitive and sequential styles over reflective, intuitive and global styles is observed. Relative invariance of learning styles has been proved by the results of the survey for pharmacy students: the dominant styles are poorly changed during four years of undergraduate study. Increasing reflectivity, intuitiveness and verbality becomes significant for the fifth year of study. However, such changes may be related not so much to the transformation of personality characteristics, but are caused by the additional selection of students when they join their graduate school. The problem of optimal choice of electronic resources for teaching chemistry was illustrated for future chemists and pharmacists with different preferences in a sensitive-intuitive dimension. One preferred learning style (more than 90% of students are sensitive) dominates among pharmacy students, while up to 20% of chemists have a pronounced intuitive type of learning. The pedagogical approaches, methods and electronic resources for teaching chemistry, are discussed for students of both specialities.

  • A STUDY ON EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF ADULTS (ON THE EXAMPLE OF ZAPORIZHZHIA
           REGION RESIDENTS)

    • Authors: Serhii Pryima, Andrii Orlov, Olena Anishchenko, Ellina Pozdnyakova-Kirbyateva
      Pages: 62 - 72
      Abstract: Lifelong learning is a determining factor of the city's or region's successful socio-economic development, the development of its human potential, the basis for the regional education policy. The theoretical substantiation, development and experimental verification of the conceptual grounds of the regional education policy require a careful analysis of both the educational capacity of the region and the study of the educational needs of the region residents, which confirms the urgency of the integrated monitoring of citizens' educational needs and the level of their satisfaction. In order to identify the educational needs of Zaporizhzhia region residents and the level of their satisfaction, 400 respondents have been surveyed. The survey was conducted in the form of a standardised interview with the “face-to-face” method according to the respondents' residence using a specially designed tool (a questionnaire) which included 20 principal questions and 9 questions of socio-demographic character. The structure of the interview was developed in accordance with the specific features of the research topic and it was divided into conventional blocks, including identification of the current state of the education services market in the region and assessment of its strengths and weaknesses, analysis of the structure of the education services market in the region, studying the educational demands and needs of the region residents, and mapping the potential possibilities for the development of the education services market. According to the results of the study, it was concluded that 57.5% of Zaporizhzhia region residents are in need of educational services. The most important reasons indicated by the respondents is the acquisition of the knowledge necessary for achieving success in the profession (46.7%), the opportunity to get a diploma, licence or certificate (30.1%), the opportunity to increase chances in the labour market (19.2%). The inhabitants of the region mostly get information from the Internet (62.0%). The analysis of the survey results revealed the trends (the understanding how important the role of education throughout life is, the priority of educational activities regardless of age, the level and profile of previous education, the nature of employment, work experience, income or residence area of respondents, the increase in interest in getting educational services among the rural population of the region, the need to create conditions for the updating of knowledge and retraining, which is related to increasing competition in the labour market, the increase in demand for active and practically directed teaching methods) and the factors (accessibility and interconnection of different levels and forms of education, the need for constant dialogue and use of feedback mechanisms in the development and implementation of regional programmes and development strategies, the need to create experimental pilot projects as promising resource centres on management of regional education development) influencing education development in the region. The results of the study of the educational needs of the region residents can be used in order to identify the priority areas of the regional education policy.

  • URBAN STUDIES: UNIVERSAL INTERDISCIPLINARY STRATEGIES

    • Authors: Maryna Prepotenska, Vania Angelova
      Pages: 73 - 83
      Abstract: The article deals with the specifics of the urban studies teaching in an interdisciplinary field. The authors present two teaching strategies that are universal in their interdisciplinary coverage: the method of mental maps and the concept of the revitalisation of urban locations in terms of theoretical comprehension and practical implementation. Students receive a task typical for a case method: to map the city on the basis of their experiences and preferences and comment on the results. The authors have found out that this process shows not only the urban visual representation, but reflects the existential level of each participant, his/her mental, spiritual, and bodily potential. The authors determine such leading intentions in mastering the city as consumerism (43%), soulfulness (21%), aestheticism (15%), co-creation (13%) and existential closeness (8%). Each type of social behaviour has a wide range of determinants that can be a subject to analysis of a number of disciplines in the sphere of humanities. The stage of perception and practice of the process of revitalisation represents a logical transition from analytical studies to social interaction, which is able to unite participants of urban studies in co-creation in real time. With this in mind, authors claim that some students develop their outlook and communication in the framework of the “creative class” in the “creative city”. Since the method of mental maps and revitalisation exceed the traditional content of these approaches, the article proposes to introduce the term SENSITIVE MAP, reflecting the development of the city on the basis of the “sense of the city” and the meaning of the city residents’ life values.

  • CULTURE-THROUGH-LANGUAGE STUDIES IN SOCIO-PEDAGOGICAL WORK IN FRANCE

    • Authors: Liliia Shkoliar, Yevheniia Dehtiarova, Inesa Yermolenko
      Pages: 84 - 89
      Abstract: The article highlights the aim, the fundamental principles (democracy, openness, humanism, tolerance) and the main directions (culture-through language studies, social and legal support and protection, educational socio-pedagogical and psychological assistance, organisation of socially significant activities in an open environment) of socio-pedagogical work in France. The authors focus on culture-through language studies, its historical development and connection with the active migration policy of the country, characterises institutions which conduct culture-through language studies in socio-pedagogical work, namely: institutions of social and pedagogical infrastructure, local self-government bodies and local executive authorities. The article substantiates the necessity to focus the attention of specialists in socio-pedagogical work on the issues of the French language, history and culture in order to ensure that both the indigenous population and the representatives of other cultures living on the territory of the country are aware of their belonging to the French civil society. The authors highlight the importance of specially developed programmes and scientific and methodological resources for studying the linguistic, cultural and historical environment of the Republic which facilitate the process of francisation of the modern multicultural society of France.

  • MULTICULTURAL COMPONENT IN THE SYSTEM OF PROFESSIONAL TRAINING OF TOURISM
           

    • Authors: Nataliia Zhorniak, Maryana Havran, Olena Barabash, Anna Shayner, Oksana Bilyk
      Pages: 90 - 95
      Abstract: The article deals with tourism and hospitality managers’ professional training in Canada. The authors analyse the scientific and pedagogical literature which highlights different aspects of the problem of multicultural component in the system of professional training of tourism and hospitality managers. The research methodology comprises theoretical and applied methods (bibliographical method, analysis and systematisation, content analysis, statistical analysis, synthesis and comparative analysis, mathematical method). The development of tourism and hospitality managers’ professional training is outlined and the emergence of the need for its multicultural component formation is specified. The analysis of tourism occupational standards made it possible to distinguish the knowledge, skills and professional values of tourism and hospitality managers. The formation of the multicultural component, the content, objectives, and priorities of multicultural training are based on three main principles of multicultural education: accessibility, equal opportunities, diversity. The article describes the theoretical and applied elements of multicultural component formation as well as basic forms of organisation: the development of special courses, including additional content elements in curricula and academic programmes, the use of innovative forms and methods of training. The proposals for possible ways to adapt Canadian tourism and hospitality managers’ professional training experience in Ukraine are developed.

  • TOWARDS TEXT DIDACTISATION FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEVELOPING TRANSLATION
           SKILLS

    • Authors: Katarina Seresova, Daniela Brevenikova
      Pages: 96 - 100
      Abstract: The authors deal with one of the key issues in teaching translation, namely selecting suitable texts for in-class translation training. Translation belongs to the core courses in the study programme “Foreign Languages and Intercultural Communication” at the Faculty of Applied Languages, University of Economics in Bratislava. For the text to be selected for the purpose of its didactisation, and in this way to contribute to the development of translation skills, it has to fulfil numerous criteria. The focus of this paper is on text topic and its content, text type, text length, and degree of text complexity. Learners need to be prepared for diverse situations; therefore they have to be exposed to diverse text types in terms of topic and genres. As far as the criterion of text length is concerned, we consider shorter texts more suitable for training translation, because they enable teachers to work with several texts within one lesson unit and study texts on various topics. We deal with the text complexity in terms of content, as well as syntactic structures and lexical density. Text complexity has to be adapted to learners’ language, professional and cultural level of students. Features of this kind of text and criteria of text selection described in the paper are based on domestic and international sources as well as on authors’ experience in teaching translation and their own translation activities.

  • ANALYSIS OF THE CURRENT STATE IN INNOVATIVE RESEARCH TRAINING OF PHD
           STUDENTS IN UKRAINE

    • Authors: Viktoriia Meniailo
      Pages: 101 - 106
      Abstract: The paper examines the challenges of curricular reforms aimed at updating Postgraduate study programmes of Ukrainian higher educational institutions in terms of specific innovative content and methodologies. By applying statistical methods to the data acquired from questioning first-year and second-year PhD students, the concept of PhD students’ training (comprising formal, content-based and methodological aspects) has been reconstructed from the point of view of its key beneficiaries. The research results show that the majority of postgraduate students consider research and innovation activities as an important part of their future professional activity; the level of innovative research training in Postgraduate Education is rated as higher than average, while their own level is viewed as average. The paper outlines main forms of research and innovation activities in which the students participated as well as difficulties which they encountered. As a result of the quantitative analysis, the author presents the rating of the most important modules, which should be included in the curriculum of Postgraduate studies (Foreign Language for Specific Purposes, Methodology of Scientific Research, Methods of Mathematical Statistics, Academic Writing and Academic Integrity, Critical Thinking Basics, Innovation basics, Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer, Project Activity Basics). The paper also outlines the most effective, in students’ opinion, forms and methods of innovative research training in the process of Postgraduate Studies, including preparation of scientific publications to be submitted to international journals; workshop conducting, organisation of thematic meetings with successful scientists and entrepreneurs; on-the-job training in leading research centres; participation in interdisciplinary discussion workshops; participation in youth contests of innovative ideas and projects; participation in scientific research conferences and workshops; realisation of scientific research and social projects. The obtained results can be used for the development of educational and scientific programmes for the third level of higher education and construction of a model for innovative research training of the future PhD candidates.

  • STRATEGIES FOR TEACHING GIFTED STUDENTS ENGLISH GRAMMAR

    • Authors: Maryna Shemuda
      Pages: 107 - 113
      Abstract: The article highlights the difficulties teachers face in teaching grammar to the gifted students because the individuals with exceptional gifts, talents and learning potential have needs that require specific attention. It presents the typical characteristics of the gifted students aged 17-19 who study according to the educational and professional programme “Secondary education (English language and literature)”. Some strategies for teaching gifted students English Grammar in a natural and flowing way to support them and maximise their learning are proposed by the author. One of such strategies is to ensure a multi-level curriculum in Grammar that is personalised to the gifted students’ interests and educational needs. An important point in the process of teaching gifted students English Grammar is to provide various enrichment activities and support their emotional growth. The author also describes the strategy of implementing technology usage in the process of teaching gifted students grammar concepts. One of the author’s proposed strategies is teaching gifted students English Grammar interactively and putting some fun into this process. The author also puts an emphasis on the importance of incorporating Grammar in context and encouraging gifted students to self-education while learning English Grammar. Implementing the proposed strategies can promote the creation of psychologically comfortable and creative learning environment to the gifted students in the process of learning Grammar. The author offers a variety of activities for everyday use in the process of teaching gifted students English Grammar, aimed at stimulation of the gifted students’ imagination, humour, creativity, etc. Finally, being a teacher of the gifted students means to be ready for a constant and professional development and always concentrate on the learner.

  • A QUALITATIVE EXPLORATION OF STUDENTS' EXPERIENCES WITH ACQUIRING
           CULTURE DURING FOREIGN LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION

    • Authors: Halis Gözpınar
      Pages: 114 - 125
      Abstract: Language teachers ought to give their students a sound grounding in what is known as the five C’s—communication, communities, cultures, connections, and comparisons—in addition to the classic four basic language skills. This study examines how first-year Turkish students currently enrolled in a culture course at Giresun University view culture-focused courses, and how much cultural training they had received (if any) in high school prior to entering university. This study is qualitative in nature, and provides information by using multiple sources of data. The fact of the matter is that their high school teachers focused more on grammar and avoided culture due to the constraints of both time and of an exam-oriented education system. Regarding the benefits, the course has pushed them to examine the relationship between language and culture, offered a reason to study the target language, and made the learning process real. It takes patience and effort in order to convince youth of the necessity of languages, as well as to make them better aware of, and to dispel their prejudices towards other cultures. The study also provides recommended practices that can encourage educators to implement during foreign language instruction.

  • PRACTICES OF EDUCATION MANAGERS TO INCREASE TEACHERS’ ENTHUSIASM FOR
           ACHIEVEMENT OF DESIRED RESULTS IN WORK

    • Authors: Abdul Shakoor, Muhammad Javed Iqbal
      Pages: 132 - 139
      Abstract: The current study explored the practices of educational managers to increase teachers’ enthusiasm for the achievement of desired results in work because educational managers and teachers are the important part of educational institutions and without their roles the academic performance cannot be achieved. The present study sought to analyse academic behaviour, personal behaviour, incentives, and contribution of educational managers for the institutional development through teachers’ enthusiasm. It was a descriptive and co-relational study and the data were analysed through descriptive statistics, t-test, Pearson correlation, and regression. A questionnaire was used as a tool of the study which was validated by sending to the panel of experts and the reliability of the instrument was tested on Cronbach’s alpha and Factor analysis. The population of the study was 279 educational managers and 3617 teachers while the sample of the study was 279 (100%) educational managers and 361 (10%) teachers. The sampling was made on census and simple random sampling. The findings of the study revealed that educational managers’ practices towards teachers had weak correlation in motivation, boosting up morale, appreciation, task equal distribution, minimising communication gap, pointing out deficiencies in isolation, respect for teachers, cooperation, realising inner feelings, good conduct of behaviour, creating tension free and relaxed environment, sharing professional knowledge, introducing latest teaching techniques, making teachers energetic and efficient, promoting collegial and cooperative culture, formulating comprehensive school policy, acknowledgement of work contribution, and intervention in the staff duties. It is recommended for the educational managers to promote teachers’ enthusiasm for the achievement of the desired result by enhancing motivation, democratic way of dealing, cooperation, and acknowledgement of their work.

  • THE CONCEPTUAL OUTLINE OF PERCEPTION IN TERMS OF GREIMASSIAN SEMIOTIC
           THEORY

    • Authors: Anna Zaslonkina
      Pages: 140 - 147
      Abstract: The current study addresses the nature of the relation between perceptual, cognitive, emotional processes, and linguistic experience within the observer framework. As an extension of the already conducted investigations into the semiotics of the sensible, the conceptual triad SENSE : FEELING : EMOTION is introduced. The study argues that the ternion in question is a component of human expressivity constituting the semiotic space of the thymic category. The synergism of cognitive-semantic characteristics of the three concepts under study corresponds to the basic level of categorisation in modern English. More significantly, the aim of the analysis is to consider the valency models of the names of the conceptual triad SENSE : FEELING : EMOTION as well as their collocability potential. The present paper highlights that the structures of predicate valency of conceptual dependencies FEELING → SENSE (the valency index equals 0,38) outnumber the analogous structures FEELING → EMOTION (the valency index equals 0,24). The structures of object valency of the combinations FEELING → EMOTION (the valency index is 0,9) prevail over the combinations SENSE → FEELING (with the valency index of 0,1). The data obtained confirm the idea that the correlation between observer and observable is twofold: cognitive-perceptual correlation denotes the observer’s outward perspective, whereas cognitive-emotional correlation denotes the observer’s inward perspective.

  • GRAMMATICAL PARAMETERS OF THE NOTIONAL MODUS OF EMPATHY CONCEPT
           LEXICALISED IN MODERN ENGLISH DISCOURSE

    • Authors: Nataliia Tatsenko
      Pages: 148 - 153
      Abstract: The article provides a comprehensive consideration of the notional modus frame of EMPATHY concept embodied in modern English discourse. It is aimed at analysing the grammatical parameters of the frame which encode semantic characteristics of EMPATHY concept (lexicalised by literal linguistic means) and their organisation in discourse. The grammatical parameters represent different slots of the frame: empathy (n) – INSTRUMENT/AGENT, empathiser (n) – AGENT/PATIENT, empathisee (occasionalism) (n) – PATIENT/AGENT, empathise (v) – ACTION, empathetic/empathic (adj), empathising (adj) – SUCH, empathetically/empathically (adv), empathisingly (adv) – SO. These slots speak for the diversity of the ways in which they have fixed the “grounding” of EMPATHY concept on a communicative situation. Applying corpus methodology, the research proves that in the human epistemic space the notional modus of EMPATHY concept exists as an abstract entity or idea about empathy rather than a specific event represented by the verb. Context analysis shows that at present the noun empathy has lost its original meaning of the ability to enter into emotional harmony with a certain work of art. The analysis of the British national corpus (BNC) allows making a conclusion that in the frame of the notional modus slots empathiser and empathisee are mostly irrelevant. In the semantics of the frame slots, there are numerous shifts of the prototype meaning based on extension, narrowing, metaphorical and metonymical transitions. However, they do not lead to the disintegration of the standard norm which is stored in the memory of the individual.

  • THE STRUCTURAL AND COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF MODERN AMERICAN FEATURE
           FILMS’ SMALL SYNTAX IN TRANSLATION

    • Authors: Yuliia Pletenetska
      Pages: 154 - 161
      Abstract: The article is an in-depth research of the dubbed American feature films small syntax on the basis of the structural and comparative analysis of the original film texts and their Ukrainian translations. The paper considers the functioning of small syntax units with regard to their communicative intention, communicative reason and communicative validity. The author has proposed and described the structural classification of the English-speaking films small syntax models and their translation equivalents according to the morphological expression of the main word and the structure. The structural and comparative analysis of the small syntax of five American feature films and their Ukrainian equivalents has shown that the majority of word-combinations are simple, i.e. two-words (combination of two notional words or two notional words with the auxiliary part of speech) that is explained by film genres. The analysis presents also five types of formation of complex word-combinations and considers the productivity levels of film small syntax models. The article compares the main methods and techniques of the small syntax translation in the dubbed versions of American feature films and their frequency characteristics as well as introduces the reasons, varieties and conditions of the transformations usage. The results of the analysis have shown that audiovisual nature of the film text, differences in the rules of lexical-semantic and syntactic compatibility, various ways of expression traditional concepts, subjects and actions, the need for text synchronisation determined by the dubbed translation, defined the peculiarities of translation of the number of small syntax units.

  • ANGLICISMS IN THE FRENCH LANGUAGE: LINGUISTIC AND SOCIAL ASPECTS

    • Authors: Maryna Kostiuk
      Pages: 162 - 168
      Abstract: The primary objective of this article is to observe the phenomenon of “anglicism” in the French language and to study the causes and the reasons for the frequent use of English borrowings. English, as an international language, influences French strongly despite the efforts of French purists to protect their language from it. This article describes and analyses the influence of the English language on the French language. It addresses the notion of franglais as a social phenomenon in French that can be observed at different levels of life. Borrowings from English, or anglicisms, represent one of the most important types of semantic neologisms in the French language. There are six types of anglicisms in French: semantic, lexical, syntactic, morphological, phonetic and graphical. The repeated use of borrowings in French results in the modification of their semantic structure according to the peculiarities and needs of the French language. Anglicisms in French acquire different shades of meaning. The most frequent English borrowings have the suffix –ing like shopping or camping. The English suffixes -are and -al have been transformed into the French suffixes -aire, -eur, -el, which are more typical for the French language. Many popular English words are used in the business sphere, not only in France but all over the world (brainstorming; mainstream; process; workshop; bullet points; burnout; conference call; desk; one-to-one). Language policy in France, with its main representative the Académie française, tries to control the redundant use of English words in this era of globalisation.

  • PROSODIC EXPRESSION OF EMOTIONAL-AND-PRAGMATIC POTENTIAL OF A SPOKEN
           ENGLISH PROVERB

    • Authors: Larysa Taranenko, Steven Schaefer
      Pages: 169 - 177
      Abstract: The paper is a study of the prosodic features involved in the oral actualisation of English proverbs as influenced by structural, emotional and pragmatic factors, which are defined within the framework of a new energetic approach to the research of phonetic phenomena. On the basis of auditory and acoustic analyses of English proverbs, the authors describe the energetic specificity of their prosodic organisation. This description introduces energy-grams formed with the use of a quantitative K-criterion of the texts’ emotional and pragmatic potentials, as well as their typical intonation patterns. Using the traditional method of linguistic interpretation of the results obtained, the authors substantiate invariant and variant intonation patterns of English proverbs, whose parameters are described both within the text’s structural elements and at their junctures. The authors come to the conclusion that an energetic approach to the study of a complex interaction of emotional, pragmatic, semantic and structural factors makes it possible to present a comprehensive description of invariant and variant prosodic patterns for any type of texts on the basis of such fundamental linguistic categories as emotion, pragmatics, structure, and meaning.

  • ENGLISH SPYCRAFT PROFESSIONALISMS AS A LINGUISTIC PHENOMENON

    • Authors: Oleksandr Lahodynskyi, Kostyantyn Mamchur, Volodymyr Skab
      Pages: 178 - 184
      Abstract: The article defines and classifies English Spycraft professionalisms (ESP) as lexical units denoting main espionage concepts. It establishes that, because of inconsistency with the ‘terminology’ requirements (basically, lack of exact definitions, abundance of synonyms, and connotation colourings), these lexical units can be placed only under ‘professionalisms’ category. They include vocabulary with various degrees of formality: from official to very colloquial. The article also provides detailed ESP morphological and semantic analyses. Morphology demonstrates the three basic groups of ESP building means: compounding (formation of ESP complex phrases with several words of different parts of speech), affixation (using prefixes and suffixes), and abbreviation (shortening of Spycraft words and phrases of different kinds). Semantics finds out metaphor and metonymy as conversion means of ESP formation. The most frequently occurring metaphors across ESP are those of personification, process, container, time, animation and orientation. Metonymy is used among the ESP to figuratively name facts from espionage activity. All the ESP linguistic peculiarities are clearly illustrated by a large number of up-to-date examples derived from various English language open access resources. These examples were carefully singled out and collected as a research vocabulary corpus to be entered into the dictionary being prepared for the publication in the nearest future.

  • THE ENERGETIC POTENTIAL OF SPEECH PAUSES

    • Authors: Alla Kalyta
      Pages: 185 - 193
      Abstract: In the paper on the basis of a systemic methodological approach within the framework of speech energetic theory the author advances a theoretical insight into the nature of psycho-energetic generation and decoding of speech pauses in communication as well as offers a theoretical and conceptual solution to the problem of defining the dimensionless criterion able to quantitatively evaluate the levels of emotional and pragmatic potentials of certain speech segments at their pausal juncture, or boundary, termed in the paper as “a pausal jump”. The paper elaborates the formula defining the criterion of specific pausal jump of emotional and pragmatic potentials of the adjacent speech segments, being derived on the basis of the substantiated conceptual assumptions and methodological conditions. The author comes to the conclusion that the offered quantitative criterion will (1) advance the possibility to classify the energetic properties of emotional utterances, and (2) will allow the researcher to make up the speakers’ typical psycho-energetic portraits.

  • THE STRATEGY OF STRUCTURING INFORMATION ACCORDING TO ITS RELEVANCE IN MIND
           MANIPULATION

    • Authors: Olga Dmytruk
      Pages: 194 - 200
      Abstract: The article deals with the linguistic means of mind manipulation and the strategy of structuring information according to its relevance. The author offers an overall classification of manipulation strategies and tactics and goes on to analyse how the strategy of structuring information according to its relevance is implemented in various communicative situations. The article focuses on giving a detailed analysis of the strategy and linguistic and extra-linguistic means used to manipulate the addressee. The author looks into the theoretical grounds of “the compliment sandwich” along with its practical application in communication, analysing a failed attempt of this act and offering an explanation why the act was unsuccessful. The author also demonstrates how an act of mind manipulation may be successful even after the addressee realises they have been manipulated, offering reasons for such an outcome. Special attention is given to the analysis of mind manipulation act where the target is guided by the manipulator from beginning to end, without realising of being manipulated. The article maintains that a successful manipulation act is based on a variety of techniques as well as the knowledge of the addressee’s personal traits and the dexterity of the manipulator. Verbal means are enforced by non-verbal ones producing the desired effect.

  • SPECIFIC NATURE OF EVALUATIVE SPEECH ACTS

    • Authors: Ganna Prihodko
      Pages: 201 - 205
      Abstract:  The article discusses the issues connected with the analysis of appearance of the evaluation in the utterance. Particular attention is paid to the illocutionary and perlocutionary effect of evaluative speech acts. The speech act is viewed in the paper as the minimum unit of communication. The structure of the speech act includes four levels: locution, proposition, illocution and perlocution. In the evaluative speech acts semantic basis serves as the category of evaluation. Considering semantic and pragmatic properties of the object of our study, the author proposes to distinguish the following types of evaluative speech acts: 1) focus on the subject; 2) focus on the object. Among evaluative speech acts, oriented on the object, the author singles out proper evaluative speech acts (praise, condemnation) and emotional evaluation speech acts (admiration, anger, respect). This approach is based on the fact that evaluative verbs are direct representatives of illocutionary intention of evaluative speech acts. The author comes to the conclusion that the classification of evaluative speech acts can rely on semantic and pragmatic features of evaluative verbs.

  • GENDER DIFFERENCES AMONG MOG PLAYERS IN THEIR SOCIALISATION PROCESSES

    • Authors: Ricardo Casañ-Pitarch
      Pages: 206 - 212
      Abstract: The increasing popularity of multiplayer online video games has given rise to the creation of linguistic communities with specific forms of communication and rules. Among the several features of those digital communities, some differences among men’s and women’s communication behaviours seem to be real when they play video games. Thus, the objective of this research is to analyse gender differences in the socialisation process among MOG Players (Multiplayer Online Game). To this aim, this research introduces an experiment with 201 MOG players (males: 147; females: 54) who responded to a survey concerning the use of 20 social communicative acts (based on Guntermann and June, 1982, p. 26) in three different contexts: the participant knew in advance the other player from a) the real world, b) the virtual world, or c) they had never met before. The results obtained from this analysis have shown some differences between both male and female MOG participants in their socialisation process when interacting with other players by determining the frequency and the per cent variation on the use of the selected communicative acts. In conclusion, it seems that there are some similarities and differences between men and women when interacting with MOG players that may interfere in the way they play videogames and behave towards other players.

           PERSPECTIVE

    • Authors: Natalia Ivanytska, Nina Ivanytska
      Pages: 213 - 218
      Abstract: The paper focuses on the contrastive analysis procedure from the bilateral perspective. This work is relevant due to current cross-linguistic approaches aimed at the comprehensive study of the notional words being the central ones with their ability to express a variety of categorical meanings. The verb is viewed as a central word in Ukrainian and English being of scholars’ interest for a long time. Bilateral contrastive study is believed to be an effective tool for identifying similarities and differences within the subsystems of Ukrainian and English verbs. The authors present grounds for revealing a number of benefits of comparing language units from bilateral perspective. The two-way contrastive analysis is considered to be scientifically valid when using a reasonable tertium comparationis. The latter is viewed as an objective extra-lingual basis that has a specific realisation in each language. When studying verb’s systems as complicated language items the choice of tertium comparationis turns next to a verb’s category “process”. The predominant advantage of this category is accounted for its universal, cross functional, broad-based nature. Comprising semantic and grammatical aspects, the category of “process” is believed to be a key point for building semantic and syntagmatic paradigms in the verb’s system. The study concludes that the category of “process” is qualified as generalised construct (model) comprising lexical semantics of verbs, and a set of grammatical (morphological, derivational, syntactic) categories. The realisation of verbal processing is represented by the unique combinations of forms in each of the compared languages. The specificity of the verb’s category of “process” in the compared languages reveals the hidden facts that are believed to enrich the theory of language with new generalisations.

  • ANGLO-AMERICAN SCHOOLS OF SCIENTIFIC COMMUNICATION IN THE CONTEXT OF
           ACADEMIC DISCOURSE GENRES

    • Authors: Svitlana Shcherbyna
      Pages: 219 - 224
      Abstract: The article presents a critical review of research works dedicated to Anglo-American scientific communication debates on academic discourse genres. This study shows that Standard English represented by British English and American English dominates in Anglo-American scientific communication. It has been assumed that Anglo-American academic discourse, as a scientific notion of discourse study is a hybrid term used to identify two interrelated types of discourse: instructional-pedagogical discourse that comprises teaching and learning practices in educational establishment and research-oriented discourse relating to research data sharing between different discourse communities. The results of the present study have revealed the internal genre taxonomy of Anglo-American research-oriented discourse identified by criterion academic spoken or written communication, with spoken research genres further divided into research report, conference presentation, roundtable discussions, dissertation defence and written research genres divided into research article, monograph, dissertation, abstract, and summary. The research article is claimed to be the leading research genre recognised by a distinct rhetorical structure: Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion and Conclusions. Finally, three main approaches to genre analysis introduced by Anglo-American scientific communication schools have been overviewed, namely neo-rhetorical (North American New Rhetoric Studies), sociocultural (Australian systematic functional linguistics) and linguo-didactic approach (English for Specific Purposes).

  • COGNITIVE AND ONTOLOGICAL ESSENCE OF AXIOLOGICAL DOMINANTS AND PRINCIPLES
           OF THEIR TAXONOMY IN DIACHRONIC AND SYNCHRONIC REVIEW

    • Authors: Nataliia Stefanova
      Pages: 225 - 230
      Abstract: The article provides a critical outline of elucidation of the cognitive and ontological essence of axiological dominants with the representatives of different cultures of language and a definition of the principles of their taxonomy in diachronic and synchronic review. The author makes a hypothesis that philosophical and axiological thoughts on this matter have not been homogeneous as in diachronic sense of its study (in particular, in the ancient world, the Middle Ages and Modern period etc.) so as in synchronic segment. It is proved that despite the ancient philosophers’ efforts such major value concepts as “Truth”, “Good”, “Beauty”, “Benefit” were left without clear understanding. Thus, they were not differentiated. The attempts of philosophical categorisation and conceptualisation remained to be undertaken by Renaissance scientists and thinkers. However, the notion “value” gets its philosophic status only in the Modern period, which was critical for the development of values taxonomy. The article argues that only after establishment of axiology as an independent philosophical doctrine it was possible to articulate four fundamental principles of the values structure: ontological, which makes it possible to explain scientifically the existential localisation of values and their correlation to human existence; gnoseological (or cognitive), with the help of which we experience values and necessity to study their correlation on the basis of both formalised principle, which is used for general rules of taxonomic hierarchy of values, and conceptual principle, which reveals the essence of values and determines their place in the defined hierarchy. The researcher introduces a new ethnosemiometric vector of axiological issues development directly within linguistics, which will enable to assess axiological dominants with the representatives of different cultures of language relying on the given values taxonomy and values hierarchy.

  • SEMANTIC ASPECT OF COMPOUND NEOLOGISMS IN THE MODERN GERMAN LANGUAGE
           (Based On Marketing Lexis Materials)

    • Authors: Oksana Horbach, Oksana Hryniuk
      Pages: 231 - 239
      Abstract: The article is dedicated to the research of the semantic aspect, namely the semantic derivation process as one of the ways of emergence, semantic characterising and classification of compound neologisms pertaining to the lexis of marketing of the modern German language, which previously was not singled out from the corpus of economy lexis and was not subjected to linguistic scrutiny. Intrinsic to the analysed compound nouns are such features of professional lexis as unambiguity, semantic specialisation, definitiveness, expressive and emotive neutrality, and brief form of expression. Compound neologisms of the marketing lexis are predominantly single-meaning words, which secure the convenience of their use in the linguistic group of experts within this area of knowledge. The terminologisation of the constituent components of compound neologisms based on meaning expansion and metaphoric reframing has been established. Within the corpus of the analysed lexis, semantic fields and lexical-semantic groups (LSGs) have been detected and singled out; moreover, the considerable quantitative scope of such groups made it possible also to single out lexical-semantic subgroups (LSSGs). The article outlines the semantic specifics of the word-building activity of the initial and final components of compounds that form series or sets of compounds of the studied lexis.

  • SUBJECT-SPECIFIC VOCABULARY AND ITS STRATIFICATION: THE CASE OF AVIATION
           ENGLISH

    • Authors: Inna Fainman, Yevheniia Tokar
      Pages: 240 - 245
      Abstract: The primary focus of the paper is on providing basic characteristics of subject-specific vocabulary classes and stratifying Aviation English vocabulary. Aviation English which serves for professional communication uses discipline-specific vocabulary which defines and transfers professional knowledge. The first part of the paper investigates the most commonly distinguished classes of lexis within the subject-specific vocabulary. They are stated to be terms, semi-technical vocabulary, professionalisms, professional slang and jargon, nomenclature names. Each class is presented in more detail in the second part of the paper. Peculiar features of every class of items are determined in order to enable differentiation from all other groups of lexis. The third part focuses on Aviation English vocabulary stratification. Taking into account the research already existing on the issue and having conducted its critical analysis as well as having thoroughly studied Aviation lexicographical issues and electronic-based aviation word lists, the authors present their view on Aviation English vocabulary stratification providing examples of lexis within each group. 6 groups of lexical items in Aviation English vocabulary are distinguished by the authors: 1) basic aviation concepts; 2) general scientific and interdisciplinary terms; 3) semi-technical vocabulary; 4) nomenclature names (nomens); 5) codes; 6) professional slang and jargon.
