  • THE METHODOLOGICAL TRAINING OF FUTURE UNIVERSITY TEACHERS TO IMPLEMENT
           INTERCULTURAL FOREIGN LANGUAGE EDUCATION: THE COMPETENCY-BASED APPROACH

    • Authors: Nataliia Maiier
      Pages: 4 - 9
      Abstract: The article highlights peculiarities of future teacher methodological training in order to realise intercultural foreign-language education through the competency-based approach. The competency-based approach is a methodological basis of the contemporary higher education system. That is why it is important to substantiate main features of the methodological teacher training for implementing intercultural foreign language education based on this approach. The research aim was obtained with the help of scientific methods: the comparison and system analysis of psychological, pedagogical, methodological sources, generalisation and conceptualisation, positive experience generalisation of future university teachers methodological training in order to implement intercultural foreign-language education, education process monitoring, pilot training that highlights the effectiveness of creative academic and professionally methodological tasks. The future university foreign language teachers’ methodological training to implement intercultural education is viewed in the light of their methodological competency formed as a result of professional training at tertiary institutions, which is manifested in the ability to effectively fulfill all kinds of professional and methodological activities, as well as long-term readiness for professional, methodological, and personal self-development and self-improvement for the lifelong period. In the context of the competency-based approach, formation and development of future foreign language teachers’ methodological competency are provided by mastering its structural components – competencies and sub-competencies. In the process of students’ methodological training to implement intercultural foreign language education, their mastering of sub-competence within lingvosociocultural competence is of great importance. A future university foreign language teacher’s sub-competence as a part of lingvosociocultural competence is a complex and dynamic interplay of specific methodological knowledge and skills that enable to organise students’ intercultural education. The future university teachers’ methodological training to implement intercultural foreign language education takes place in different forms of educational process organisation. Master’s students majoring in foreign language teacher education acquire methodological knowledge and skills within the normative discipline “Methods of teaching foreign languages at higher educational institutions”, the elective discipline “Methods of using educational materials for the formation of foreign language communicative competence”, and during student teaching period. Substantiation of the criteria, methods and assessment tools of future university foreign language teachers’ methodological training to implement intercultural education is the prospect of further research studies.

  • THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE MULTIMEDIA APPROACH TO TEACHING BUSINESS ENGLISH

    • Authors: Olena Karpova
      Pages: 10 - 15
      Abstract: The paper deals with the problem of using multimedia technologies in teaching Business English at higher educational establishments. Modern forms, methods, and techniques of teaching Business English with multimedia tools have been considered. The author has outlined the components of the multimedia approach, its peculiarities and ways of using it in the classroom. Such methods of research as questionnaires, tests, quizzes, the pedagogical experiment and methods of mathematical statistics have been used. The author defines the multimedia technology as a type of a pedagogical technology that implies such organisation of an educational process that combines common forms, teaching methods and techniques with multimedia tools and products. Interactive methods and techniques, multimedia tools and multimedia products have been distinguished as the components of the introduced multimedia approach to teaching Business English. The results of the experiment have proved the efficacy of the implementation of the multimedia approach to teaching Business English at a higher educational establishment especially due to decreasing credits on obligatory disciplines and increasing hours given to out-of-class individual work of students.

  • AN INQUIRY INTO IRANIAN ENGINEERING STUDENTS LIFE EXPERIENCES OF THE
           EVALUATION OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRESS

    • Authors: Seiied Abdollah Hojjati, Mohammad Hossein Yarmohammadian, Narges Keshtiaray
      Pages: 16 - 20
      Abstract:  The present study is a phenomenological inquiry into the life experiences of Iranian engineering students on the educational progress of evaluation at university. For the purpose of the data collection, twelve engineering students, electronic, mechanics, industrial, aerospace, etc. were interviewed by the lead author. The participants volunteered for the study and each interview lasted approximately 35 minutes. The adapted design was flexibility and purposeful sampling. Qualitative data collection was employed for the present study. Data were analysed through inductive analysis and creative synthesis (Glaser's seven steps). The findings revealed important patterns and themes behind evaluation. The participants had the life experiences of evaluation as being unfair, not fully based on the classroom syllabus, and call for raising professors' awareness on evaluation. They advocated a synthesis of a theoretical and practical evaluation. The participants also supported formative evaluation during a semester. The present study has a number of pedagogical implications for teacher education, teachers, testing professionals, among others.

  • TRAINING OF AN IMPLIED READER AS A GOAL FOR LITERARY EDUCATION AT TERTIARY
           LEVEL

    • Authors: Mariia Foka
      Pages: 21 - 27
      Abstract: New goals for literary education at tertiary level have been emphasised from the perspective of the secondary school reform in Ukraine. A literature teacher’s meta objective is to educate “an implied reader” who is able to perceive and understand a literary work accurately, and who has a competency for the adequate analysis of artistic tools and means to establish the message of a literary work implied by its author. This paper aims at examining the issue of the training of an implied reader as a goal for contemporary literary education. The receptive poetics is claimed to be an essential component of the analysis of the implicit meanings in a literary work. The mechanism of the implicit meanings generation is described in the process of the reader’s reception actualisation. Modelling how the reader’s associations emerge also requires the application of psychological tools (namely the reverse funnel effect). The strategy of slow reading allows to deeply specify every artistic tool and significant detail, and the analysis of their functionality allows readers to understand the mechanism of the main message creation. The awareness of the importance of the above mentioned methodological approach opens up new research perspectives, with the methodology for a literary work academic analysis being one of the most urgent.

  • TEACHING FOREIGN LANGUAGES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ECONOMICS IN BRATISLAVA IN
           CONNECTION TO THE NEEDS OF THE LABOUR MARKET

    • Authors: Michaela Čiefová, Katarína Seresová
      Pages: 28 - 34
      Abstract: The objective of the authors of the article was to analyse the labour market from the point of view of languages used by individual foreign companies in Slovakia. Since insufficient language competence of employees is one of the causes of youth unemployment in the European Union, the paper focuses also on language preparation of the students at the University of Economics in Bratislava, and contemplates the fact whether real foreign language knowledge of the graduates meets the requirements of the labour market, and whether the curricula of individual subjects reflect these requirements. English was proven to be the most frequently selected foreign language by the students, followed by German. Since there are many American, British, as well as German and Austrian companies located in Bratislava, we find this situation rather positive. However, we highly recommend students to acquire at least basic knowledge of German in order to increase their competitive advantage.

  • THE DEVELOPMENT OF BILINGUAL EDUCATION IN CANADA

    • Authors: Natalia Mukan, Julia Shyika, Oksana Shyika
      Pages: 35 - 40
      Abstract: The article deals with the study of the development of bilingual education in Canada. The research paper offers the results drawn from a broader qualitative study. We understand bilingualism as a linguistic ability of a person, as social circumstances, as social phenomenon or individual characteristics. Bilingual education in Canada is a phenomenon which is based on the integration of theories and concepts of pedagogy, psychology, sociology, history, linguistics and psycholinguistics. The analysis of scientific and pedagogical literature reveals that scientists all over the world research various aspects of bilingualism and development of bilingual education in different countries. According to the aim of the study, theoretical and applied (descriptive, statistical, comparative, inductive, deductive, analytical, logical, historical, chronological and retrospective analysis, prognostic) methods used in our research are presented. We determine and characterise political, historic, economic, social, cultural, religious, lingual factors which caused popularisation and spread of bilingual education in the country under research. We define the lower and upper boundary of our research as well as develop the periodisation of bilingual education development. We characterise the advantages and disadvantages of bilingual education, its main forms, bilingual and traditional programmes, types of immersion programmes, realisation of bilingual education at pre-school, school and university levels.

  • EFFECTIVE FOREIGN LANGUAGE TRAINING THROUGH EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY WITH
           THE USE OF DICTIONARIES

    • Authors: Valentyna Kyrykylytsia
      Pages: 41 - 48
      Abstract: The article introduces the educational technology with the use of dictionaries into the process of foreign language training of the students of non-linguistic specialties. The author defines this technology as an algorithm of teachers and students’ common actions aimed at formation the abilities and skills of working with dictionaries of different types, learning the information obtained from dictionaries and its usage in the further practical activity. The paper demonstrates the convincing superiority of the newly developed technology which, under methodically correct conditions of its application, can significantly improve the qualitative indicators of the educational process. This hypothesis was confirmed by the results of the research conducted in 2016/2017 academic year at non-linguistic faculties ofLesyaUkrainkaEasternEuropeanNationalUniversity. 183 first- and second-year students, among them 92 students of the experimental group (EG) and 91 students of the control group (CG), were involved in the research. The study of the discipline “Profession-Oriented Foreign Language Study” in EG was carried out in the form of experimental teaching by means of the suggested technology while in CG traditional methods of teaching were used. The comparison of the students’ knowledge results obtained before and after the experiment allows us to state that there is a substantial increase in foreign language proficiency of EG students compared with the students in CG. This paper mainly presents the idea that application of the suggested technology ensures continuity and consistency of a foreign language acquisition, and a gradual transition from training to future professional activities.

  • TEACHING PRAGMATICS IN THE EFL CLASSROOM: CHALLENGES, LACUNAS, AND
           SUGGESTIONS

    • Authors: Maryam Sharif, Lotfollah Yarmohammadi, Firooz Sadighi, Mohammad Sadegh Bagheri
      Pages: 49 - 53
      Abstract: Within the last few decades, interlanguage pragmatics research has risen to its due prominence under the influence of Hymes and the subsequent models of Communicative Competence (CC). Among different components of CC, a large number of L2 studies have attended to the construct pragmatic competence, which deals with both pragmalinguistic knowledge and sociopragmatic knowledge. As such, interlanguage pragmatics research is interested in the pragmatic competence and pragmatic performance of L2 learners; however, teaching pragmatics to Non-native Speakers (NNSs), especially EFL learners, is a thorny issue. As a result, pragmatic competence has been noticeably absent from ELT curricula, despite the fact that it has an assured place in different models of CC. The reasons for this neglect lie behind the obstacles to teaching and learning pragmatics in the ESL/EFL classroom settings. Thus, drawing on the published literature, this very paper primarily aims at discussing challenges and lacunas in teaching and learning pragmatics within the confines of EFL classrooms. Subsequent to this, the paper enlists suggestions to overcome these obstacles. To this end, the paper focuses on four broad areas: the EFL context, ELT materials and resources available to L2 learners in the EFL context, teacher education, and assessment of pragmatic knowledge.

  • INTERCULTURAL FOREIGN LANGUAGE EDUCATION IN UKRAINE IN THE CONTEXT OF THE
           SECONDARY SCHOOL REFORM

    • Authors: Sofiya Nikolaeva
      Pages: 54 - 58
      Abstract: The article highlights the results of the achievements and shortcomings analysis of the secondary school reform in Ukraine, including the foreign languages teaching reform, started in 2016. The appropriate investigation methods are used. On the whole, the following techniques are applied: comparison and system analysis of methodological sources, generalisation and conceptualisation, synthesis generalisation of the positive experience of the foreign language training in secondary school, observation of the educational process and reflection, testing the school-leavers, data collection, monitoring of the Ukrainian secondary schools official sites. The article shows that in order to achieve the goals of education envisaged in the reform, it is necessary to shift from “teaching a foreign language” to “intercultural foreign language education”. Some ways of realisation of such education in the aspect of the above-mentioned reform are offered. It has been concluded that Ukraine has achieved a lot in teaching foreign languages during the independence years, but many of the key issues need solution, especially the development of the educational standards for teachers and students.

  • TRAINING TRANSLATORS: FROM GENERAL REQUIREMENTS TO PARTICULAR APPROACHES

    • Authors: Nataliya Sopylyuk
      Pages: 59 - 64
      Abstract: This article deals with some aspects of teaching translation. This question has not received much attention not only in Ukraine, but in Translation Studies as a whole. The present study illustrates how linguistic and cultural divergences between source and target texts complicate the process of translation. The paper also investigates the concept of translator’s competence and emphasises the main professional skills of a good translator. The author analyses the most evident challenges of translation process, which are likely to provide a small clue for better teaching translation and provides some references to didactic approaches of the translation process, suggested by different authors. The article is composed of four main parts. The first part regards to the representation of the role of translator nowadays, as well as the complexity of the translation process. The second part briefly examines some translation difficulties, caused by linguistic and cultural differences between source and target texts. Linguistic and cultural divergences between French and Ukrainian texts are studied on the material of translation into Ukrainian “In search of a lost time” by M. Proust. The third part is a brief overview of translator’s competence. The article states that translator’s competence consists of different sub-competences, namely: linguistic, extra-linguistic, translation sub-competence and psycho-physiological one. The fourth part focuses on some approaches to translators’ training. Methods and activities recommended by professionals engaged in the education of future translators are described.

  • READINESS FOR LEARNER AUTONOMY OF PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS MINORING IN ENGLISH

    • Authors: Iryna Khalymon, Svitlana Shevchenko
      Pages: 65 - 71
      Abstract: Learner autonomy is one of the key factors in successful language teaching and learning, therefore teachers’ task is to develop learners’ autonomy. However, teachers can foster learners’ autonomy only if they are autonomous learners themselves. The article reports findings of a survey study of the level of readiness for learner autonomy among prospective teachers minoring in English at Nizhyn Mykola Gogol State University in Ukraine. The data were gathered through a questionnaire, designed to investigate each learner’s perceptions and beliefs in four domains associated with learner autonomy: willingness to take learning responsibilities, self-confidence to learn autonomously, motivation to learn English, capacity to learn autonomously. The research indicated that the general level of the prospective teachers’ learner autonomy is moderate though mean values fluctuate considerably from item to item. Thus, their motivation to study English and willingness to take learning responsibilities are on a high level, while their capacity and self-confidence to learn autonomously are moderate, with some items having means lying in the range that characterises a low level of learner autonomy. The implications of this study suggest that teacher trainers need to pay more attention to creating conditions in the classroom that will help prospective teachers become highly autonomous learners themselves.

  • METHODS THAT WORK: BEST PRACTICES OF ADULT EDUCATORS IN THE USA

    • Authors: Oksana Chugai, Olena Terenko, Olena Ogienko
      Pages: 72 - 77
      Abstract: The article discusses best practices of American adult educators. The basic terms related to the topic, which are used in academic literature, are defined. Considering the range of terms synonymous to “adult educator” (teacher, instructor, trainer, practitioner, facilitator, mentor, educator, resource person, programme advisor, etc.), the roles adult educators play are described. The article concentrates on identifying the most important barriers to learning of adults (situational, dispositional, institutional, environmental, emotional) understanding of which is necessary for adult educators. Previous experience of adults is described as one of possible reasons for resistance to learning. The paper also reveals methods which adult educators use to overcome the barriers and facilitate adult learners in reaching their educational goals, the importance of flexibility for adult educators, providing choices for adults and ways of getting feedback. The eclectic approach to teaching adults, which may combine learner-centred teaching, content-centred teaching, reflective teaching, cooperative learning, experiential learning, and even traditional teaching, is found to be most appropriate. Thus, the article suggests considering the needs of adults, not adherence to a certain theory or approach, to be of utmost importance for adult educators. Best practices of American adult educators include: theory followed by practice, equal participation, team work, availability of choices, different types of assessment and reflection, which ensure practice, variety and enforcement.

           TRANSFORMATIVE LEARNING IN PUNJAB, PAKISTAN

    • Authors: Muhammad Azhar, Muhammad Munir Kayani
      Pages: 84 - 91
      Abstract: Transformation learning theory explains transformative learning and the mechanism of its occurrence. The objectives of the study were to evaluate the professional development of novice teachers in the area of classroom practices, teaching methodology and lesson planning in the context of transformative learning and to explore transformative learning among novice teachers manifesting in classrooms with respect to their designations and academic qualifications. The study used quantitative survey research design. A number of 78092 teachers who were recruited in three years across Punjab, Pakistan (2010, 2011 and 2012) were selected as target population of the study. Out of them, 1036 novice teachers were randomly selected as a sample of the study. A questionnaire was used for the collection of data. The data were analysed by one-way ANOVA and independent Post Hoc Tukey test. It was found that a change occurred in classroom practices of novice teachers. Our study has shown that there were differences among novice teachers with respect to the designation and qualification of novice teachers in the area of classroom practices. The study recommended for school education department to introduce latest classroom practices to other tiers of teachers and to develop an implementation strategy for professional development programmes.

  • THEONYMS IN THE HORROR STORY OF HOWARD PHILLIPS LOVECRAFT
           “IMPRISONED WITH THE PHARAOHS”

    • Authors: Hanna Kolosova
      Pages: 92 - 98
      Abstract: This article is devoted to the research of features of the specific onomastic lexis for denotation of divine creatures and its usage in the literary genre of horrors on the example of Howard Phillips Lovecraft’s short story “Imprisoned with the Pharaohs”. In the centre of author’s attention is the study of theonyms’ influence, as a lexical instrument, on the formation of the atmosphere of horror and construction of specific text space of works of horror literature. Theonyms are proper names of deities in some pantheon which belongs to a certain religion or mythology. In this research, we assess the use of separate theonyms from the pantheon of religion of ancient Egypt. The term “theonym” describes the phenomena of the ideal world, which differs in the understanding of people. Theonymic peculiarity of words can show off while solving problems not only of linguistic character, but also philosophical, culturological etc. This article studies set of characteristics, which are typical in the literature of horror. Such features are optional for a genre, but absolutely necessary for the creation of the story which states the task to “frighten”. Attention is focused on such characteristics: identity with the character, commonness of events, supersaturating of story with commonness, consequences of protagonist’s decisions, complexity of timelines, possible but optional absence of ending, use of “strong” words for the festering of atmosphere. Horror features are described through the direct dependence of theonyms use, which strengthen the effect of “terrible” and put the accent on certain historic character of events.

  • ON THE QUALITY OF C IN CERTAIN OLD ENGLISH WORDS.

    • Authors: Mariana Oleniak
      Pages: 99 - 102
      Abstract: The paper deals with the controversial issue of the proper vocalic quality assigned to the consonant sound in the Old English words gelice, licest, licedest, licede, licen, liceden, licende, geliced, lician, where the c symbol occurs in the intervocalic position. The specific literature is thoroughly analysed, on the grounds of which the scholars’ standpoints have been organised into four groups providing four different opinions as to the pronunciation of the Old English c in the intervocalic position, which contribute to inconsistencies and unavoidable mistakes in teaching the History of English in universities. To eliminate the discrepancies the author expounds on certain justification for the hypothesis, according to which c in gelice, licest, licedest, licede, licen, liceden, licende, geliced, lician possesses the vocalic quality of the velar stop [k], contrary to the majority of opinions which seem to be insufficient and rather misleading. The conclusion is crucial in terms of correct reading of the Old English texts as well as their proper pronunciation while creating different digital recordings and teaching Old English. Some of the words in question are a compulsory structural part of the Old English simile, a popular stylistic devise that quite often becomes the focus of linguistic analysis, which is another reason to stress the necessity of its correct pronunciation.

  • EVALUATIVE RESPONSES IN MODERN ENGLISH FICTION

    • Authors: Tetiana Myroniuk
      Pages: 103 - 108
      Abstract: The process of communication implies information exchange, mutual influence, and evaluation of speakers. An addressee is an important participant of this process, yet little is known about him as a person who receives and evaluates an addresser’s utterance. This is particularly significant because the addressee influences the further course of communication by his/her own responses due to the rules of turn taking. An evaluative response is thus an evaluative speech act that serves as the perlocutionary effect of an addresser’s utterance and simultaneously expresses some intention concerning an interlocutor. The present paper aims to identify, classify and analyse the types of evaluative responses from a pragmatic perspective. The empirical material consists of 30 modern American and British novels, or 3400 dialogues containing evaluative responses. The theoretical basis of the investigation integrates the main principles of pragmalinguistics and speech act theory. In view of this, we suggested a pragmatic typology of evaluative responses based on an addressee’s speech reaction to the received stimulus. The study claims the universality of an evaluative response as a speech act. It may provide not only emotional perception of reality but also contribute to its adequate comprehension and even exert direct or hidden influence on verbal and nonverbal actions of an interlocutor.

  • SYSTEMIC APPROACH TO TRANSLATION: EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH

    • Authors: Oleksandr Rebrii
      Pages: 109 - 114
      Abstract: The article deals with the problem of translation as a system and analysis of its systemic features in both structuralist and process-oriented paradigms. In its structuralist dimension, systemic nature of translation is revealed through that of a text (as the main object of translation analysis) and language (as a source of its means). In its process-oriented dimension, translation is revealed in translator’s systemic thinking. Researching the specifics of systemic thinking as a cognitive activity requires a new methodology. The article proposes the exploration into translator’s decision-making on the basis of experimental method of autointrospection, which is defined as exteriorisation of translator’s considerations as to different aspects of the activities he or she is being engaged in. For this purpose, the eccentric tale by S. Milligan was translated and notes were taken as to the specifics of overcoming selected translation difficulties of the lexical level (proper names, onomatopoeias, culturally-bound lexemes, nonce words, and puns). Special attention was given to formulating a general strategy of translation of the text in general and local strategies for reproduction of the selected lexical items. The research allowed to draw some conclusions as to: correlation between structuralist and process-oriented vision of translation as a system; ways and methods of correlating methods of systemic translating lexical items both within their categories and among these categories on the general textual level. Systemic thinking is thus presented as a skill whose development is the essential part of translators’ professional training.

  • COMMONLY USED AND TERRITORIALLY MARKED VOCABULARY AS A MEANS OF STYLISING
           THE COLLOQUIALITY IN THE NOVEL “INAUGURATION” OF MYROSLAV LAZARUK

    • Authors: Maria Tsurkan
      Pages: 115 - 121
      Abstract:  The article examines the lexico-semantic groups of commonly used and territorially marked vocabulary as a means of stylising the colloquiality in the modern literary narrative and it also describes the qualitative properties and the stylistic potential of the colloquial vocabulary in the aesthetic language plot of the novel Inauguration by Myroslav Lazaruk. The author considers the stylistically marked words and phrases that provide a general background of the novel and give it the status of a regional vocabulary of colloquial language. Of particular importance are the words that mark the identity of the heroes to the Soviet era with characteristic lexical range.

  • LINGUOCULTURAL FEATURES OF BRITISH TALES

    • Authors: Mariana Karanevych
      Pages: 122 - 127
      Abstract: The paper examines linguocultural features of British tales. The relevance of the study is determined by great interest of linguistic science to the issues of national and cultural specificity of folk texts, which is caused by peculiarities of historical development, beliefs, traditions and customs of native people. The objective of the study is to reveal national and cultural characteristics of the British tales by means of their linguocultural analysis. This paper is divided into three sections. The first section analyses linguocultural specificity of the British folk tales. These texts are characterised by the abundance of colloquial words, violation of grammar rules, and prevalence of simple sentences. Among the most frequently used stylistic means are graphons, parallel constructions, repetition, and inversion. We have also revealed male gender preference in folk tales. The second section examines linguocultural features of the British literary tales. They are characterised by the variety of lexical and stylistic means and a diversity of characters and plots. These tales reflect individual worldviews of writers and their aesthetic tastes. The third section gives an overview of adaptation of traditional stories to modern times. Retellings of classic stories appear to meet the needs of people of different ages or population strata, to satisfy the demand for emerging trends or to come alive on screen. Both types of tales express cultural peculiarities of the British people, describe their lifestyle, surrounding and world outlook. The results of the investigation can be effectively used for a further profound comparative analysis of sociolinguistic and linguocultural features of English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish tales.

  • THE CATEGORY OF EVALUATION IN POLITICAL DISCOURSE

    • Authors: Tatiana Ananko
      Pages: 128 - 137
      Abstract: Political discourse is a popular area of research because it penetrates a modern society. Being usually delivered by politicians, political discourse is a complex linguistic phenomenon which is directly or indirectly aimed at distributing, exercising the political power and winning the majority of votes during elections. This article deals with the category of evaluation which is considered to be a semantic and pragmatic category and can be one of the most powerful means of influence on the audience. This study focuses on the evaluative means used by Hillary Clinton as one of the presidential candidates in the USA in her speeches during the presidential campaign. Under the Appraisal theory framework, this paper discusses a variety of meaning-making resources used by the speaker to express her evaluative involvement in communication. The categories of engagement and graduation are also analysed. The attention is also paid to the interrelations between evaluation and values. Of special interest is a wide use of metaphors as well as the semantic polarisation of evaluative components in the speeches of the politician. The results show that the attitudinal meanings are mostly conveyed by judgements.

  • TOWARDS A TYPOLOGY OF SEMANTIC DERIVATION MODELS. A CASE OF MENTAL
           ENGROSSMENT VOCABULARY

    • Authors: Oleh Demenchuk
      Pages: 138 - 143
      Abstract: The paper focuses on the semantic derivation models of mental engrossment vocabulary – a semantic class of words that denote the mental state of a person absorbed (lost, buried, plunged, etc.) in thought, memories, dreams, etc. The study shows the characteristics of the development of a mental engrossment vocabulary semantic paradigm from a cross-linguistic perspective and reveals the semantic derivation models of engrossment adjectives in the English and Polish languages. Semantic derivation modelling provided in the paper proceeds from the assumption that the development of a linguistic item semantic paradigm is realised simultaneously with a situation concept extension. The extension of the concept is supposed to be determined by the changes the participants undergo within the source-to-target-situations transitions (shifts). The participants of the source situation may change their role, referential, communicative, taxonomic or deictic characteristics as compared to those in the target one. The changes determine the types (models) of derivational strategies that underlie the development of a linguistic item’s semantic paradigm. The semantic development construed by the English and Polish engrossment adjectives suggests the regular way of a concept extension – from the internal domain (the situation of mental engrossment) towards the external domains (the situations of identification, association, evaluation, etc.). The study concludes that engrossment adjectives in English and Polish may apply to the actantial (based on the increase of the situation participants), implicative (based on the implications of the situation participants’ changes) and categorical (based on the situation participants’ taxonomic class specifications) models of semantic derivation.
