  • Animal Names in Children’s Vocabulary. Frequency Studies

    • Authors: Katarzyna Zagórska
      Pages: 19 - 34
      Abstract: The article aims to present the children’s vocabulary in terms of the presence of animal topics. The author characterizes given issues on the basis of linguistic statistics research (volumes: H. Zgółkowa, K. Bułczyńska, Vocabulary of kindergarten children, Poznań 1987; H. Zgółkowa, Vocabulary of kindergarten children 2010–2015, Poznań 2016).The material used in two dictionaries was collected in the years1980–1983 and 2010–2015. The frequency and range lists were analysed. In the examples described, animal names appear in language of the youngest speakers of Polish (2–7 years old). Animal topics may play a supportive role in linguistic, glottodidactic and natural education.

  • Animals and the World of the Supernatural

    • Authors: Svetlana Kmecová
      Pages: 35 - 52
      Abstract: Phraseological stocks of all languages contain numerous phrasemes with zoonym components. In
      the paper the author deals with Slovak and Slovene zoonym phrasemes which demonstrate ancient ideas of ancestors about interconnections between animals and the world of the supernatural, in relevant cases she also deals with other phenomena related to the subject of the paper. A number of phraseological units reflect the belief that animals used to have the ability to sense upcoming events, predict the weather, misfortune or death. The units listed in the paper are often rather archaic, however, many of them are still in use or the idea they represent is still alive. The analysed language material has shown similarity not only between Slovak and Slovene languages but also between the mental concepts which form the language picture of the world of their users.

  • Some Remarks on Anthropocentrism and Didacticism as Exponents of the
           Homo–Animal Relationship (Based on Polish and Russian Phraseological
           Units with the Names of Selected Farm Animals)].

    • Authors: Agata Piasecka
      Pages: 53 - 74
      Abstract: The aim of the article is to show the relationship between the homo and animal spheres. The research material consists of Polish and Russian phraseological units in a broad sense (idioms, comparisons and proverbs) with zoonyms being the names of farm animals. The main emphasis was placed on the inherent – in faunal phraseology – and the closely related features of anthropocentrism and didacticism. Tracing the relationship between humans and animals clearly indicates the pejorativization of the linguistic image of fauna by a man. People like to use animal portraits to speak of the dark sides of their own world. Ascribing disabilities to representatives of fauna at the same time exposes the value of everything that is human. Parallel however, there is a phenomenon of hyperbolization of the negative portrait of a man who tries to subjugate living creatures from outside his species, guided by heartlessness, greed and selfishness. The lack of morality or culture cannot be considered animal traits, since higher feelings are characteristic of homo sapiens and constitute the foundation that distinguishes humans from the fauna world. Animals only fight for food, domination, and take care of the young. Their behavior is not due to ill will, lack of morals or culture. In the behavior of animals, their nature prevails and their innate instincts ensure their survival. Animals are not uncultivated and immoral, it is only a man who thinks of them in this way, involuntarily projecting his own world onto the animal world. There is a human interpretation of the world in animalistic phraseological units.

  • “The First Swallow”: Avian Metaphors in Nikita
           Khrushchev’s Political Discourse

    • Authors: Elena V. Carter
      Pages: 75 - 95
      Abstract: Birds are a rich source for metaphors in paremias that are known to be a significant rhetorical force in various modes of communication. This article deals with the repertoire of ornithological proverbial texts utilized in the Soviet leader’s public speeches and memoirs, as well as in their English translations. The metaphor human is bird, in which there are various grounds of comparison, is explored. The peculiarities of using avian metaphors in the context of the original and the ways of their translation into English are scrutinized as well. The analysis of the material shows that the main features, shared by the Target (human) and the Source (bird species), are grounded on physiological characteristics and behavioral traits, having a negative slant. The equivalent and literal translations are applied as the main methods of rendition. Of particular interest are the metaphorical “animalistic metamorphoses” found in translation.

  • Love Animal: Animal Motifs in Croatian Early Renaissance Love Poetry

    • Authors: Tomislav Bogdan, Snježana Husić, Borna Treska
      Pages: 99 - 112
      Abstract: Animal motifs were very popular in medieval bestiaries and love poetry, especially in Provençal and Petrarchan poetry. Afterwards they spread throughout European Renaissance love poetry and they are found in love poems by Šiško Menčetić (1457–1527) and Džore Držić (1461–1501), the very first Croatian Renaissance poets. This paper examines some of the animal motifs present in their poems, in order to establish whether they could provide a better understanding of the luralism of Croatian Renaissance love poetry, which cannot be reduced to Petrarchism alone, and of the extraliterary context to which certain animal motifs are related. Our research shows that e.g. motifs of snakes and birds are linked to various types of love discourse; animal motifs related to the topos of love hunt are also analysed. It is shown that animal motifs are potentially polysemous and that their usage follows conventions of the genre and norms of a particular type of love discourse with which they are associated, while their meaning is more precisely defined
      in the context of the poem.

  • Kak Taubeka Dva: on the Image of Amiable Love

    • Authors: Lahorka Plejić-Poje, Evelina Rudan
      Pages: 113 - 126
      Abstract: This paper is aimed at scrutinizing emblematic and iconic functions of doves in love poetry. Despite the fact that love is a complex emotion both in literary and psychological sense, the main analytical emphasis will be put on the literary codification of a simple (amiable) type of love – incarnated in the symbol of dove – within various cultural layers. In addition to this, it will be argued that a dove or a pair of pigeons as literary topoi are very common in popular and oral literature as opposed to the literature with the certain authorship. The aforesaid literary image can frequently be found in Kajkavian manuscripts of love poetry which originated from the 18th and 19th centuries. Moreover, it will be demonstrated that this image is still present in a popular music of the 20th and 21st century.

  • The Affective Nature of Realism – on Non-Human Subjects in Wilhelm
           Mach’s Prose

    • Authors: Adriana Kovacheva
      Pages: 127 - 139
      Abstract: The article examines the problem of the special place occupied by the prose writer Wilhelm Mach in the Polish literary field in the 1960s, when it was suggested that the novel had mainly cognitive functions. Mach does not openly oppose this tendency, but his work is concerned with the question what makes literature an experience. The article traces the development of this problem in Mach’s work, focusing on novel scenes and episodes of killing or torturing domestic animals in which the writer’s mechanism for depicting affects plays a key role. Their analysis shows that, according to Mach, a literary work works when it transmits affects and demonstrates the ultimate possibilities for their expression. The article tests the hypothesis that Wilhelm Mach’s search for affective realism can be seen as a counterpoint and context to Blaga Dimitrova’s fiction.

  • Animals in Serbian Poetry of the Second Half of the 20th Century

    • Authors: Marko Avramović
      Pages: 141 - 163
      Abstract: During the second half of the twentieth century, unlike some earlier periods, the dominant tendency was to present animals in Serbian poetry in the “mode of new literacy”, i.e. to depict their real existence. This approach began in the middle of the century by Vasko Popa with his famous cycle “List”. After him, numerous Serbian poets continued in that direction. Thus, in his poetry, Aleksandar Ristović, created a lavish bestiary in which he paid the most attention to tiny and seemingly trivial animal species. In his opus, he emphasized the common biological basis and the equal value of humans and animals. However, in the work of the author of the same generation, Borislav Radović, we come across the nostalgia of modern urban man for the animal world. In the generation of poets who affirmed themselves on the Serbian poetry scene during the seventies, one of the important thematic preoccupations was the animal world. From this generation of poets, we pointed out the verses of Petar Cvetković, who presented all the complexity of the animal’s encounter with the human, and Ibrahim Hadžić, who very often humanized the animals he wrote about.

  • A Donkey and His Voice in the Poetry of Zvane Črnja

    • Authors: Evelina Rudan
      Pages: 165 - 187
      Abstract: A donkey is an animal that can be found in linguistic, literary, and cultural-anthropological works. However, this work analyses the symbolism of the animals that appear in the Chakavian poetry by Zvane Črnja, Croatian poet, opinion journalist and cultural historian. It specifically focuses on the character of donkey (or tovar) in that poetry, as well as the poetic effect of the place that the motif or the subject of donkey occupies in Črnja’s poems. In his poetry, the donkey represents, at least to
      an extent, a signum or a symbol of the rebellion of those who are oppressed, invisible or marginalized due to their language, their culture or their social status. It is a symbol of all of those who perceive their marginalism as the cause for uprising or newly awakened self-awareness, and which, in part, fits into the pattern of the Mediterranean cultural codex, due to its humoristic aspect.

  • The Interspecies Encounter Zones. Relations between dogs and humans [with
           “devil’s saliva in hearts”

    • Authors: Ewa Szperlik
      Pages: 189 - 207
      Abstract: The subject of the literary study proposed in the title is the triptych by Josip Mlakić, which follows the convention of a futuristic anti-utopia. The work provides research material amenable to the application of diverse, interdisciplinary methodological tools (from ecocriticism to animal studies). In addition to the symbolic framing of the issue of dogs in cultural history, the starting point for the reflections on the post-apocalyptic vision of the totalitarian world (through which further wars swept and disturbed the ecosystem) is the post-humanist and post-anthropocentric perspective of the present and future human condition, with a particular focus on species chauvinism. In the Bosnian-Herzegovinian writer’s anti-war prose, speciesism (seen from the perspective of the complex relationship between dogs and humans) is also manifested in the blurring of the boundary between the concepts of animalism and humanity, in a vision of the world in which homo crudelis proves to be the greatest threat. In the world depicted by Mlakić, the relations between the man and the dog can be defined as an example of companion species, “nanoculture” realised in diverse “contact areas”. There also arises the question of hierarchical relations between people, entities with weak subjectivity: the excluded, the marginalised and all exterminated Others, including the disabled, who become subordinated “dogs” with the status of victims. The anticipated result of the study will be to present the function of literature as a source of reflection and a medium of expression (an invention, attributed to the humans) in relation to the concept of the twilight of anthropocentrism.

  • The Emmanuel-Lion Parallel and its Importance in the Painting Scheme of
           Serbian Iconostases

    • Authors: Agnieszka Gronek
      Pages: 209 - 225
      Abstract: One of the unique features in the schemes of painting of modern Serbian iconostasis is the icon of The Unsleeping Eye, illustrating the intellectual parallel of Emanuel–lion. The ideological source for this image is biblical texts and their interpretations by Origen, Cyril, patriarch of Alexandria, Theodore of Cirrhus, Epiphanius, bishop of Salamis, and the explanation of role of the lion in Physiologos, Greek bestiary from 2nd–4th century. This icon is located in the very center of the screen, most often directly above the royal gates. This article attempts to read the sense of this presentation. Iconographic, iconological, comparative studies, and analysis of the content of biblical texts and inscriptions on icons led to the belief that the image of The Unsleeping Eye in this place of iconostasis primarily performs apotropaic functions. The Christian church is divided into two parts, sanctuary and nave, which means symbolic division into a visible and invisible world, earthly and heavenly, bodily and spiritual. The iconostasis is the border between these two spheres, and royal doors connect them. The passage is guarded by image The Unsleeping Eye. Although in the 18th century there were radical formal changes in Serbian Orthodox painting, and traditional patterns were replaced by new Western origins, their eschatological and apotropaic senses were remained.

  • Representaton of Family Values in Polish Paremiological Units with
           Semantically Opposite Components

    • Authors: Tetiana Moroz
      Pages: 229 - 248
      Abstract: This paper presents the results of the research of the concept of family and basic family values in Polish paremiological proverbs with semantically opposite components. More than 60 paremiological units with semantically opposite components were analysed. Considering the semantics of paremias, there are groups that represent the image of the Polish family, i.e. “Husband and wife (the relationship between them)”, „Parents and children (the importance of parents for children)”, „Parents and children (the importance of children for parents)”, „Relationships between other relatives”. The analysis of these groups has showed the breadth of the semantic structure of paremias with antonymous components, which reflect the relationship between husband and wife, the peculiarities of the family hierarchy; a significant difference between the importance of father and mother for a child, in particular the status and functions of father and mother; the importance of children in parents’ lives; relationship between brother and sister and between two brothers as well, and the images of blood relatives and relatives by marriage.

  • Atrocity at the Roots of Bulgarian Statehood' An Attempt of
           Interpretation Based on Bulgarian Historical Novels

    • Authors: Wojciech Jóźwiak

      Abstract: The foundations of the medieval Bulgarian state are inseparably paired with the adoption of Christianity. At that time an event occurred which based on modern terminology ought to be described as coup d’état. As a consequence a cruel punishment was administered by the ruler, prince Boris. A bloody execution of all the 52 rebelled houses became an immanent symbol of the rise of the Christian Bulgarian state and plays an important role in the novels related to the history of the medieval period of the state. The literary vision of the Bulgarian authors of the socialist era presents that tragic occurrence almost as a founding murder and in accordance with Foucault interpretation as a bloody spectacle of suffering that was a demonstration of the power of the sovereign over his subjects, and following Girard can be described as specific collective sacrifice.

  • Pavlović’s Reading of Folk and Old Serbian Poetry

    • Authors: Đorđe M. Despić
      Pages: 265 - 278
      Abstract: Using the analytical method, the paper points to the extents and implications of Pavlović’s research of Serbian verbal folk and medieval literature. Along with this, the paper tries to present this segment of his essayistic work in the context of the wider Pavlović’s essayistic and poetic opus as well, emphasizing their prolific and versatile corresponding. His essays are in a function of thoughtful and evaluating reflections of our oldest literature strata, which eventually shapes up the image about literature and historical span of Serbian poetry and the experience of a unique spiritual continuity. Pavlović’s Essays on Folk and Old Serbian Poetry (orig. Ogledi o narodnoj i staroj srpskoj poeziji) represent an example of how broadness of interests, an impressive intelect, erudite competency, an open and explorative spirit, but also inevitable artistic sensibility and frequent poetic expression become a trigger for new readings and interpretations surely valuable for new generations of readers and researchers.

  • Animals through the Prism of Language and Culture

    • Authors: Ana Samardžić
      Pages: 281 - 294
      Abstract: The paper is a review which examines the semantic analysis offered in Slobodan Novokmet’s study entitled “Animal Names in Serbian language – Semantic and Linguo-Cultural analysis.” The monograph was published in 2020 by the Institute for the Serbian Language at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Belgrade. Although lexicological and lexicographic in its nature, this monograph offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of animal names in the Serbian language, combining methods of traditional linguistics, i. e. componentional analysis, and the increasingly popular linguocultural approach. The focus of the study is to research the mechanisms of semantic transfer within the meaning of lexems denoting animals, such as metaphor and methonymy. The monograph also deals with the lexicography definitions, offering the ways of their improvement.

  • The Great Problems of Micro-language

    • Authors: Mariola Walczak-Mikołajczakowa
      Pages: 295 - 303
      Abstract: The article contains a review of Marinela Mladenova’s book Банатски български книжовен език в контекста на славянската микролингвистика. История, динамика на нормата и езикови политики, the author of which focuses on the normalization and development of the language norms of the Bulgarian minority living in Banat. The literary language of the Banat Bulgarians has the status of an island language because it has been used by the Catholic community for over two hundred years living outside their homeland, in a foreign linguistic environment. It developed its own literary norm through time, mostly under the influence of Croatian, Romanian, and Hungarian, and is now regarded a micro-language. Marinela Mladenowa’s book, as well as the accompanying article, discuss the political and societal reasons that influenced the development of this standard.
