  • The Female and Male World in Croatian Proverbs

    • Authors: Goranka Blagus Bartolec, Ivana Matas Ivanković
      Abstract: Proverbs as concise textual structures are primarily defined as oral (folk) literary forms in which universal thoughts are expressed on the basis of individual experiences understandable to speakers of the language, i.e., of the social com[1]munity in which they originated. In relation to, for example, idioms, the use of proverbs in today’s public discourse is much rarer, and proverbs in Croatian are most often recorded in printed form, while online edited lexicographic sources of proverbs are rare. Folk customs, human character and physical features, social and religious values, the relation of human and nature are the most common motives in proverbs. Male-female relationships are also the subject of numerous proverbs. Given the past times when they were created, they can be considered the source of a stereotypical image of the status of women and men in society that exists in human consciousness. Based on proverbs with the component woman, grand[1]mother, mother, daughter, sister, girlfriend, widow, father, son, husband…, this paper will analyze proverbs with the topic of male-female relations, e.g. Ljubav daj ženi, ali tajnu odaj samo majci i sestri. (Give your love to your wife, but reveal the secret only to your mother and sister.), or proverbs referring to an individual feature attributed to a man or a woman, e.g., Kakvo drvo, takav klin, kakav otac takav sin. (Like tree, like wedge; like father, like son.)., Ženi sina kad hoćeš, a kćer kad možeš. (Marry a son when you want and a daughter when you can.). The analysis includes the following: 1. representation of proverbs in other lexicographic (printed and online sources), 2. representation of such proverbs in contemporary public discourse, 3. structural and semantic features of proverbs motivated by male-female relationships. In conclusion, the role of proverbs on the topic of male and female in the contemporary context is discussed – what is their perspective and whether the corpus has replaced traditional recorders and word of mouth today.doi:10.5671/ca.45.4.7

  • First Names in a Social Context

    • Authors: Domagoj Vidović
      Abstract: In this paper, the influence of social change on the Croatian fond of first names is addressed. Once, first names served to indicate the belonging of an individual to a certain linguistic, religious or ethnic community; socio-political circum[1]stances or affiliation with a place of origin were reflected in them, or they were a declaration of a certain social conscious[1]ness or political choice. From the second half of the 20th century onward, they have more often come to reflect individu[1]alization, and changes in the frequency of certain first names have become more evident. Male first names are more traditional and susceptible to the rules of inheritance, even though social circumstances are more strongly reflected in them, while female names are more open to more frequent change and to foreign linguistic systems.doi:10.5671/ca.45.4.8

  • How Language Influences Conceptualization: From Whorfianism to

    • Authors: Kristina Štrkalj Despot
      Abstract: Do speakers of different languages think alike because of the universality of the experience of being human or do we all think differently because of differences in our languages' The answer to these questions has changed throughout the history of linguistic thought, ranging from observing languages merely as tools for expressing our thoughts to strongly believing that languages shape and even constrain our thoughts. This paper presents an overview of two most important theories that deal with these questions: the “rise and fall” of linguistic determinism (Whorfianism), and the development of its more cautious version – linguistic relativism (Neo-Whorfianism) – advocated today primarily within the framework of cognitive views of language, as well as their criticisms, most commonly within the framework of generative views of language.doi:10.5671/ca.45.4.9

  • In Memoriam - Prof. Elezović

    • Authors: Mate Mihanović
      Abstract: Slobodan Elezović – communicator, computer scientist, theoretician and historian of journalism, anthropologist and cultural publicist died in Zagreb on October 14, 2020 at 80 years of age. He will be remembered in Croatian science, academia and culture for his interdisciplinary engagement and prolific creative productivity. Science and art are in an inherent dichotomy with each other because the former is objective, verifiable, and reproducible; and art, on the other hand, is subjective and, in the same artefact, original and unrepeatable. In addition, modern science, due to its complexity and multitude of data, requires a narrow subject orientation, which leaves us with only the memory of polyhistors and omnipotent creative Renaissance figures. But, despite this fact, people of intellectual potential and artistic sensibility who can be interdisciplinary, creative and productive can still exist and survive logically in modern dimensions and limitations. One of them is prof. dr. sc. Slobodan Elezović, professor of communication and information sciences, communicator, theoretician and historian of journalism; a historian of the performing arts, especially drama, opera and ballet, as well as an art critic. Slobodan Elezović attended primary school and grammar school in Zagreb, and completed his studies in comparative literature and art history at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Zagreb. He defended his doctoral thesis entitled “Communicological aspects in diplomatic activity with reference to the factors affecting the formation of public opinion” in 1993 at the Faculty of Organization and Informatics in Varaždin. He was a full professor at the Journalism Study of the Faculty of Political Science, undergraduate lecturer at the Faculty of Philosophy and the Faculty of Graphic Arts, University of Zagreb, and doctoral studies at the Faculty of Political Science, Faculty of Organization and Informatics and Alma Mater Europaea University in Maribor / Salzburg. He published numerous professional and scientific articles in the journals Politička misao, Informatologia, Media, Culture and Public Relations, Collegium Antropologicum and others, as well as in peer-reviewed proceedings. He is also the author of monographs on communication-information and stage-artistic themes: “Biserka Cvejić”, “Historical development of communication: types and forms through the centuries”, “Philosopher of the stage or poetic-stage lyricist Milko Šparemblek”, “Vlasta Knezović: Life on Stage – 35th Anniversary of Artistic Work”, “Anthropology and Communication”, “Libretto – the Weft of Opera”, “Mira Stupica and Artistic Zagreb”, “Vertical of Life for Life on Stage, Ilir Kerni – National Ballet Champion of the Croatian National Theater Zagreb”. He was a member of the Croatian Political Science Association, member of the Presidency of the Croatian Communication Society, and member of the Croatian Anthropological Society and the European Anthropological Society, as well as a member of the editorial board of the Collegium Antropologicum, Informatologia and Media, Culture and Public Relations. In the academic year 2004/5 he founded and taught the course Communication in the Program of Anthropology Studies at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Zagreb, Coll. Antropol. 45 (2021) 4, Zagreb, Croatia 382 and since the autumn of 2005 professionally joined the scientific research work and scientific projects of the Institute of Anthropology in Zagreb. In academic year 2006/07 he implemented the course Visual Communication in the curriculum of Anthropology, Faculty of Philosophy in Zagreb, and in the fall of 2006 he published the manual “Anthropology and Communication” adding in January 2007 a conceptually-thematically related special print “Classical methodology of cultural anthropology, a review of the basics in the system”. In the Library and Reading Room Bogdan Ogrizović in Zagreb, he was the organizer and moderator of the Tribune for Culture and Science Collegium Hergešić, and the founder and main author of the portal “EHO in us and around us” cultural and social editorial concepts and content. He was the founder and long-term president of the “Croatian-Japanese Friendship Society”. We will remember all he did for the development of anthropology in Croatia, while his journalistic and scientific work will remain a permanent Croatian cultural and media legacy. We are grateful to him for his kind and noble friendship and for many shared moments illuminated by his pure flame of intellectual and moral conscience. Mate Mihanović

  • In Memoriam - Prof. Larry James Brant

    • Authors: Maruška Vidovič
      Abstract: Many of us met Professor Larry Brant at postgraduate courses on the island of Hvar in Dalmatia, organized by the Anthropological Institute in Zagreb under the leader[1]ship of Academician Pavao Rudan. Larry Brant was an honorary member of the Croatian Anthropological Society and Fellow of the Human Biology Association. He liked to come to Croatia and attend anthropological meetings. He was a cosmopolitan, had friends all over the world, and traveled a lot. His illness and untimely death surprised and saddened us all. Larry Brant was born as the youngest child to mother Melda and father Roy Brant in Meyersdale, Pennsylvania (PA), where he grew up with four more siblings, three brothers and one sister. They grew up in a community where Pennsylvania German and English inhabitants lived together. John Wesley Brant, Larry’s three years old[1]er brother was Larry’s closest brother and friend most of their lives. They both went to Frostburg State University in the 1960s; the University was about thirty miles from their home. Larry received a Bs in Mathematics in 1968 and John obtained a Bs in political sciences in 1965. Their both older brothers also graduated, but at other Universi[1]ties. Larry’s mother Melda had five children and was the backbone of the family. She insisted that her children work hard at school and that they attend the university. The Brant brothers accomplished the mission laid out for them by their mother and received the university education. Larry Brant received his PhD in biostatistics from the John Hopkins University after attending Penn State Uni[1]versity and Frostburg State University for earlier degrees. Professor Brant began his career in Alaska at the Centers for Disease Control, studying growth and health related factors among the Eskimos. He later became Head of the Statistics and Experimental Design Section at the Health Biomedical Research Center at the National Institute of Aging in Baltimore. His research interests included longi[1]tudinal studies, multiple comparisons, random effects models, and the prediction of preclinical disease using bi[1]ological and behavioral variables. Professor Brant had served as Chief Statistician at the Aging Institute for 30 years, before he retired. He taught as well at the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and at the Loyola University. He was well known for his early contri[1]butions to the analysis of longitudinal data using mixed effects regression model and his work resulted in well over a hundred peer-reviewed publications, plenary lectures, invited lectures, symposia, and book chapters. Professor Larry Brant is also known in Slovenia because he kindly collaborated with an independent chapter in the book “An[1]thropology and Public Health”, published by the Slovenian National Institute of Public Health. Larry had three children from two marriages. With the Japanese Shako Aogaichi he had two very successful daughters Jennifer and Julija. Jennifer graduated from Stanford University and works in Chicago, and Julija is a graduate of Brown University of North Carolina. She works as medical doctor at Denver Hospital and has a fam[1]ily. With the Brazilian nurse, Ms Zulma, his second wife he had a son, Laurence, who is still a minor. Professor Larry Brant was buried in his parents’ grave in his hometown of Meyersdale, PA. We will remember him as an extremely good person, a great friend and a great expert. Maruška Vidovič

  • Euphemisms: Careful Language in Croatian Public Communication

    • Authors: Ana Mikić Čolić, Maja Glušac
      Abstract: This paper analyzes euphemisms - embellished expressions - excerpted from the Croatian public communication dis[1]course. The introductory chapters provide an overview of the definitions of euphemisms, from rhetorical to cognitive-lin[1]guistic ones. The central part of the paper analyses the functions of euphemisms in Croatian public communication, the ways and mechanisms of creating euphemisms in the Croatian language and the semantic areas in which euphemisms are more significantly represented. The research started from the hypothesis that euphemisms have deviated from their original purpose - to beautify the expression and save one’s own or someone else’s face - and that euphemisms are increas[1]ingly used in public communication to manipulate the interlocutor. To test the hypothesis, research was conducted using a bottom-up methodological approach that involved selecting materials from the corpus by “manually” browsing and following news and announcements in the electronic media, classifying euphemisms by types, functions, semantic areas and ways of formation, and concluding their use in Croatian public communication space.doi:10.5671/ca.45.4.2

  • Walking Gastrolinguistic Landscapes, with Metonymy as a Travel-guide

    • Authors: Mario Brdar
      Abstract: The present article is concerned with the role of metonymy in gastrolinguistic landscape, specifically with its role in creating a message for guests in the names of restaurants. Linguistic landscape is a relatively novel concept in contempo[1]rary linguistics, its methodology still in the flux, while its topics and approaches keep diversifying. The purpose of this article is to show that there is also a very important cognitive linguistic aspect to it. Specifically, the article points out the role of metonymy in creative examples of restaurant names that contain one or more elements from a language different from the rest of the restaurant name, focusing on the gastrolinguistic landscape of Central and Eastern Europe, primarily Croatia and Hungary. It is demonstrated that that in addition to some more general cultural models of language, speakers also have a multitude of specific folk models of particular languages, mostly based on stereotypes, which in turn are also metonymic. These activate a series of metonymic inferencing steps most of the time resulting in complex cumula[1]tive metonymies such that one is superimposed on the other, the target of one simultaneously functioning as the source for the next one, and so forth.doi:10.5671/ca.45.4.3

  • Addressing the Audience: Gender Analysis

    • Authors: Lana Hudeček, Milica Mihaljević
      Abstract: The analysis focuses on ways of addressing the audience in Croatian. As the function of the address is to perform a social task, as opposed to conveying information, the role of the address is phatic, and it should follow communicative conventions. Significant considerations are politeness and correctness, as the addresser wants to address the addressee most politely. Some formulaic forms of address, such as dame i gospodo (‘ladies and gentleman’) create no problem. Still, the speaker often faces the problem of whether to use only the masculine noun or the feminine and masculine pair. Croa[1]tian has rich word-formation, so linguistic issues rarely occur, but pragmatic questions about using the feminine pair arise often. All nouns denoting a person and adjectives, pronouns, and some verbal forms which refer to them are gender[1]specific in Croatian. The corpus for the analysis consists of different texts from two Croatian corpora and the Internet. The address formulas usually have the following structure dragi/poštovani/cijenjeni (‘dear/respected/esteemed’) + ad[1]dressee. The cases when more coordinated noun phrases denote the same addressee are also analyzed.doi:10.5671/ca.45.4.4

  • Gender in Slovenian Monolingual General Explanatory Dictionaries

    • Authors: Nina Ledinek, Mija Michelizza
      Abstract: In this paper, we focus on gender as a grammatical and social category in Slovenian monolingual general explana[1]tory dictionaries and explain how the category of gender influences the selection and presentation of data included in Slovenian explanatory dictionaries, as well as their structuring at macro- and microstructural levels. We focus on the analysis of the changes that have occurred in dictionary description at the beginning of the 21st century due to the growing awareness of gender-sensitive language use, and point out some of the editorial dilemmas related to the category of gender that we face in the preparation of the eSSKJ: Dictionary of the Slovenian Standard Language, Third Edition.doi:10.5671/ca.45.4.5

  • Spol and Rod from a Diachronic and Synchronic Perspective - Analysis of
           Croatian, Croatian Church Slavonic and English

    • Authors: Ana Mihaljević, Milica Mihaljević
      Abstract: The paper presents the diachronic and synchronic analysis of the use of Croatian words spol and rod and their Croa[1]tian Church Slavonic (polь, spolь, and rodь) and English (sex and gender) equivalents. The starting points for diachron[1]ic analysis are dictionaries and dictionary data, while the synchronic analysis is additionally based on the corpora and the Internet. The paper focuses on dictionary definitions of nouns rod and spol, adjectives rodni and spolni, the relation of Croatian terms rod and spol with English terms gender and sex, the terminology of sex/gender (non)discrimination, and ways of speaking about persons of non-binary gender.doi:10.5671/ca.45.4.6

  • The Perpetuation of Stereotypes in Croatian Public Discourse:
           “Autistic” as a Pejorative

    • Authors: Jakob Patekar
      Abstract:  The way people are spoken or written about has a critical role in how they are perceived, and this in turn influences how they are positioned within a society – belonging to its core, the majority, or being relegated to the margins, the minor[1]ity. Various authors have reflected on the role of language in dehumanizing, oppressing, and discriminating certain groups, be it the Jewish citizens during the Nazi regime in Germany, the Tutsi in the Rwandan genocide of 1994, black people in the United States since 1619, women throughout history, or gay and disabled people today, to name a few marginalized groups. In these and other cases, language was the first step in the othering and, consequently, the marginalization of a certain group. The aim of this paper is to explore the language of marginalization in Croatian public discourse, looking at how media workers and public figures contribute to stereotyping people with autism by using the words “autistic” and “autistically” as pejoratives. For this purpose, I analyzed one of the most visited newspaper websites in Croatia in relation to how these words are used. I found that journalists, writers, and politicians use “autistic” and “autistically” as pejora[1]tives when they want to say that an individual, an institution, or a state is “out of touch with reality”, “self-centered”, “unresponsive”. In addition, “autistic” and “autistically” are often used with the intent to insult, thus further imbuing these words with negative connotations. I conclude that raising awareness is needed among media workers and public figures so that they recognize the danger of stereotyping people with autism through the pejorative use of the words “au[1]tistic” and “autistically”.doi:10.5671/ca.45.4.1
