  3. Biskub I., Begal О. Realization of the Coherence in the Dialogue between Human and Virtual Interlocutor. - C. 12-18.

    This article is devoted to cognitive aspects of coherence which have influence on its realization with their further implementation in automatic dialogue systems modeling. The cognitive processes and components which ensure reaching the coherence in a dialogue are examined and characterized.
    We have focused our attention on the in-depth studies of such linguists as R. Dooley, S. Levinsohn, M. Gernsbacher, T. Sanders, R. Tomlin, T. A. van Dijk, W. Labov, J. Waletzky, and W. L. Chafe.
    A crucial role of the so-called “orientation section” and mental representations in constructing semantically and pragmatically coherent dialogue interaction is emphasized. It has been proved that the “orientation section” helps to prepare an interlocutor for active perception and to acquaint him with contextual aspects of the interaction, while the accurately structured knowledge representation forms a thematically well-organized basis for the relevant establishment of the relations.
    The results of the research suggest the ways of optimizing the functioning of automatic dialogue systems. Consequently, the components which are essential for reaching the dialogue coherence have been modeled for virtual interlocutors, implementation of which in the development of the linguistically competent chat-bot made it possible to achieve the natural and coherent dialogue communication between the human and the machine.
    The linguistically competent virtual interlocutor, which has received the name of “Joseph Linguiston”, is able to maintain a dialogue about linguists of different periods and fields, their works and the main concepts they deal with. All of the data is represented in the form of hierarchical tree ontology with associative links.
    On the basis of the analysis which was conducted, we can draw the conclusion that it is possible to improve the communicative competence of automatic dialogue systems by the application of the “orientation section” and well-organized knowledge representation.
    Key words: coherence, dialogue, virtual interlocutor, “orientation section”, mental representation, modeling.

  4. Bondarchuk O. The pecularities of Topos-Analysis. - C. 27-30.
    The article deals with Topos-Analysis as the element of Frame-Analysis. The term “Topos” has an ancient philosophical tradition and is related to the rhetoric, stylistics and culture of speech. The argumentation was considered as a technical activity used for persuading the recipient of the speaker`s righteousness. The high interest of the Topos is noticed in the end of XX century by H. Johnston, S. Tulmin. From the viewpoint of German scientists (Kienpointner, Korperschmidt, Funken, Faulstich, Wengeler, Ziem) Topos is a structure which runs through linguistic units at the text level and joins them to the discursive unity. Frame-Analysis is carried out at semantic level, that is why Topos-Analysis is a necessary addition to it. Topos-Analysis enables the investigation of the implicit pre-conditions expressed in the text. The research material is a book “Casual Aussteigerin” by Heike Langenkamp. To persuade the recipient of the right way of life which differs from the generally accepted norms the author uses such Topoi: Topos of decision, Topos of ascetic life, Topos of cranks, Topos of wilderness, Topos of the new beginning, Topos of love to nature, Topos of definition. Topoi are expressed by argumentative standards as if-than-formulations or formulation of causal subordinate clauses. Topoi fill those slots which are implicit in the frame are not filled with the proper fillers. Topos-Analysis explains the investigated type of Aussteiger in the system of values: lonelyness, peace, simple life, life in the nature wich differs it from the other types.
    Key words: Topos, Topos-Analysis, discourse, frame, argumentative standart, slot, default-coefficient, Aussteigerin.

  5. Bovda O., Nifaka T. Techniques for Language Acquisition. - C. 22-26.
    The article explores the notion of technique in teaching foreign languages. It is defined as a simple methodical act which provides the realization of the teacher’s educational objective in class. The term is claimed to entail activity, task and exercise. Activity is a broader term, with task applying to a separable element of a lesson, which is primarily geared to practicing language presented, usually involving students working with each other, and which has a specific goal. The classification of the activities depends on the following factors: 1) degree of teacher’s control, 2) categories of use, 3) main types of interaction activities, 4) practice and communicative activities. Their activity types are specified. Task is treated as the basic unit of action. Some distinctions have been drawn between exercises (focused on noticing and developing aspects of the form of language) and tasks (focused on integrated use of language). To develop accuracy and fluency in communicative competence both of them are recommended. The most frequently used way of categorizing tasks is stated to be according to four macro-skills, six activity-types and higher order thinking skills. Tasks characteristics (information structure, recycling, convergence) are given.
    Key words: technique, teaching, foreign language, activity, task, exercise, communicative competence, characteristic.

  6. Chendey N. Cognitive and Psycholinguistic Aspects of Metaphor as a Basis of Author’s Conceptual System- C. 198-204.
    The article is dedicated to the study of cognitive and psychological nature of metaphor and modes of its elaboration in Byron’s poetry. It is important to distinguish the way we conceive metaphorically from the way a poet expresses such thoughts in his language. General conceptual metaphors are not the unique creation of individual poets, but are rather part of the way members of a culture have of conceptualizing their experience. Poets, as members of their cultures, naturally make use of these basic conceptual metaphors to communicate with their audience. In addition to elaborating conventional metaphor, a poet goes beyond the normal use of conventional metaphor to point out and call into question the boundaries of our everyday metaphorical understandings of important concepts. The attempt has been made to prove that any literary text reflects author’s individual conceptual system, created by his artistic imagination and embodied with purposefully selected language means. Being a preferable language means in a precise poetic text, metaphor brings to the fore the importance of studying modes of its elaboration which reveal author’s individual choice of image presentation. As far as a novel metaphor is created and transmitted by an image, it undoubtedly appeals to emotions and text perception. Therefore, the image has a special status, “intermediate” between the verbal and nonverbal aspects of metaphorical expression. It has also been emphasized that poetry represents some artistic space in which metaphors undergo modifications and turn into complex poetic images. Thus, metaphor is fairly considered to be a core element in author’s individual conceptual system and style.
    Key words: metaphor, modes of elaboration, author’s individual conceptual system, idiostyle.

  7. Gordienko Y. Foreign Language as Means of Formation of Future Teacher’s Pedagogical Tolerance. - C. 46-52.
    This article deals with different scientific approaches to the definition of the concepts of “pedagogical tolerance” and “tolerant relationships”. The combination of the high level of professionalism and personal features, tolerance in particular, is a demand for the professional training of specialists at higher school. The importance of the search for effective means of the formation of future teachers’ pedagogical tolerance has been stated in the article. Foreign language is basic among those means. The pedagogical potential of this discipline has been defined particularly for this purpose. Foreign language teaching is resourceful not only for the perception of the target language culture, but it creates possibilities for studying human’s life in its social variety. The article demonstrates the possibilities for using the principles of tolerance in practice at the lesson of English. A part of the lesson, described in the article, has been devoted to the definition of personal and professional values and their importance for future pedagogical activity. Tolerance should be formed on the basis of active cooperation between a teacher and students. Attention has been devoted to the creation of such atmosphere at the lesson which can lead to academic excellence in combination with students’ personal development. Tolerant teachers respect their students’ opinions and form models of tolerant behaviour in a group by means of different problematic situations. Pedagogical tolerance has been defined as an obligatory part of professional competence of a future teacher, who is able to perceive judgements, lifestyles, appearance and behaviour of the subjects of educational process without aggression, establishing tolerant relationships on the basis of trust, cooperation, joy, empathy, compromise, and psychological comfort.
    Key words: pedagogical tolerance, tolerant relationships, foreign language, tolerant teacher, problematic situation.

    This article is devoted to the letters-ideograms which are used in modern French alphabet. They are considered as often and close signs for the more detailed analysis from the point of view of ideography. The classification of three groups of letters according to their closure has been worked out. According to the results most of printed capital letters belong to group “o”. Group “1” has only six graphic signs. Only one letter belongs to group “2” – letter B. While studying the French alphabet we make a detailed analysis of letters-ideograms, including their component parts. We note that the essential elements of a letter-sign are: the circle, the horizontal line, the vertical line, the curve, the arrow and the cross. Most of the letters are open, which show the open system of the French language. In our research the classification of small letters-ideograms of the French alphabet on the level of a graphic element has been worked out and the pragmatic function of certain graphemes has been considered. The basis of small letters of the French alphabet is the graphic element and the description of pragmatic function of certain graphemes. We consider graphic signs as graphic objects which a person uses for the conventional replacement of the other object and which can concern the notion of an idea, syllable and sound. As to their essence small letters are letter signs that fulfill some functions: communicative, syntactic, system-forming and pragmatic. First attempts to determine the typological features of the graphemes of the French alphabet in order to study the scantily explored for the present communicative – pragmatic properties of this class of orthograms on the language level, that is script and ideography, have been made. Examining the monograms as ideographic signs and joining their pragmatic functions, our own four-level classification of the graphemes and ideograms for the common indication of a graphic element which is the basis of each group and gives the possibility to analyze French spelling from the point of view of ideography, has been worked out.
    Key words: grapheme, graphic sign, ideogram, letter, French alphabet, component part, closure, pragmatic function.

  9. Gusak L. Psycholinguistic aspects of associative teaching of the foreign languages. - C. 59-66.
    Early learning of the foreign languages causes active searching of the ways of younger pupils’ additional opportunities by employing both hemispheres of head brain. One of the ways of solving this problem is associative teaching the foreign languages that is closely connected with both spheres of younger pupils’ activity: emotional (affective) and intellectual (cognitive).
    This article deals with the analysis of the psycholinguistic investigations of associations, which is closely connected with the problems of teaching foreign languages to younger pupils.
    Genesis of the notion” association” is presented in the given article. A special attention is paid to the English and American scientific schools dealing with investigation of associative phenomena. Two laws of verbal association are presented in the given article. Concerning the linguistic interpretation of association the author of the article proposes to determine the fifth stage in learning associations (in addition to four stages determined by O. Zalevska), which is closely connected with investigation of verbal and nonverbal associations and their usage in the process of teaching foreign languages.
    The appearance of associative lexicography, associative grammar and associative linguistic is closely connected with the publication of six-volume work “Associative thesaurus of the Russian language”. It was stated that associations can be a special model of keeping knowledge in our memory. Cognitivists suppose that there are special nets in our consciousness for keeping information: actualization of one net (by means of word-stimulus) tugs another net. Ukrainian linguists (N. Butenko, M Muravitska, A. Potebnya, N Terehova and others) treat associations as sense relations between words. A word activates complex mechanism of the associative relations which shape its image in person`s lexical memory.
    On the basis of the ideas of associative experiment the method of associative symbols was suggested for teaching English to primary school pupils.
    Key words: association, psychological investigations, verbal and nonverbal associations, associative teaching of foreign languages, method of associative symbols.

  10. Hlyudzyk Y. The poetonym sphere of the cycle “The Chronicles of Narnia” by C. S. Lewis from the point of view of their etymology and language functioning (on the example of hydropoetonyms). - C. 36-40.

    The article studies the semantic class of hydropoetonyms selected from the fantasy cycle “The Chronicles of Narnia” in aspects of their origin and grammatical features. The group of poetonyms in question has been classified into an extensive system : the subgroup of pelahopoetonyms indicating seas and oceans, together with the subgroup of potamonyms representing various rivers. Consideration of proper names denoting water bodies within the suggested issues has proved the author’s determined choice of language units and basic formal features of poetonyms. The system and structural patterns of hydropoetonyms have been also suggested with two patterns being the prevailing ones: onymized common noun + of + name, attributive onymized common noun + onymized common noun. The origin and types of word formation of the given semantic class have been described in details. The type of semantic proprialization has been pointed out as the dominating word building method of hydropoetonyms. The main grammar features of the given semantic class proved to be their active use in the Common Case and various possessive constructions, as well in the typical nounal syntactic functions, i.e. the subject and the object. Partitive constructions, homonymic forms and onymized common nouns in plural form have been highlighted as the unique peculiarities of hydropoetonyms. The significance of hydropoetonyms has been outlined in the general poetonym sphere of the investigated fantasy cycle and in the author’s idiolect. The prospects for further investigations are to study the functional and cultural features of hydropoetonyms and consider other semantic classes of Narnian poetonyms both from the etymological and grammatical points of view and in terms of their cultural and stylistic colouring.

    Key words: literary onomastics, poetonym, hydropoetonym, idiolect, etymology, structural pattern.

  11. Kalishchuk D. Segments of Values in the Concept of FREEDOM in Barack Obama’s Discourse. - C. 77-83.
    In the article the concept of FREEDOM as one of the basic concepts of English-speaking political discourse is analysed, as well as peculiarities of its actualization in B.Obama’s discourse. The concept is treated as a linguistic-cognitive phenomenon, as a global unit of mentality, which is a quantum of structured knowledge. Special attention has been devoted to value as a constituent of the concept. Through the analysis of language means of concept actualization the nominative field of the concept of FREEDOM has been built.
    Having defined the series of synonyms for the key lexeme – freedom, and having analysed the contexts of their usage, we have built the core of the nominative field. It comprises the following lexical units (given from the most frequent to the least frequent ones): freedom, right, liberty, independence, sovereignty, self-determination, privilege, liberation, self-government, emancipation.
    The analysis of combinability of the defined lexemes made it possible to distinguish the main cognitive features of the concept, to describe the near and far periphery of the nominative field of the concept. The near periphery of the nominative field of the concept includes the following cognitive features (given from the most frequent to the least frequent ones): types of freedoms, freedom and values (ideals), independence from, fight for freedom, economy and freedom, freedom as a gift, energy independence, freedom as force. The far periphery comprises the following cognitive features: freedom’s victory, freedom as a construction, freedom as destination, freedom as a living being, true freedom, great freedom, freedom songs, flame of freedom, fresh air of freedom, a rising tide of liberty.
    According to their dominating characteristics, the distinguished cognitive features are combined into segments of values, i.e. the constituents of concept mental structure. It is ascertained that all segments of values are represented in the mental structure of the concept of FREEDOM in Barack Obama’s discourse, namely POLITICAL VALUES, RELIGIOUS VALUES, VITAL VALUES, MORAL VALUES, ECONOMIC VALUES, SOCIAL VALUES, ESTHETIC VALUES. It is proved that cognitive features may function as constituents of different segments and may represent different values at the same time. It is defined, that in B.Obama’s discourse SOCIAL VALUES segment is presented to the fullest extent, as all the distinguished cognitive features are included into it.
    Key words: discourse, concept, cognitive features of the concept, values, segments of the concept mental structure.

    This article focuses on the complex study of the substantivized adjective of modern German to define its nominative and communicative properties. It analyses the specificity of morphological categories of substantivized adjectives, suggests their lexical semantic classification and presents qualitative quantitative characteristics of the selected lexical semantic groups. The article describes the specific features of the paradigmatic relations and word-formative potential of the analysed units, reveals their semantic functional and functional syntactic properties, including the specific character of their syntactic compatibility, and exposes peculiarities of their discourse usage on micro- and macrotextual levels.
    Topicality of the article is determined by the general direction of knowledge humanitarian paradigm to study cognitive and communicative aspects of speech activities with its increased interest to the processes of the verbal arrangement of thoughts and its special attention to the different syncretic products, among which the substantivized adjective takes up the special place. Realization of the complex analysis of the substantivized adjective is connected with the necessity to make clear the regularities of transposition of speech units from one grammatical category into another, that can help to cognize closely the place and the role of nomination processes in the principles and mechanisms of the language mapping of the world.
    Key words: substantivized adjective, lexical semantic group, micro- and macrotext, morphological category, nomination, paradigmatic relations, syntactic compatibility, word-formation.

  13. Koliada E., Kondruk A. Euphemisms as the Means of Manipulation in the Political Discourse. - C. 104-109.
    This article deals with the functioning of euphemisms in the political discourse. The euphemisms are researched on the basis of the English sources. The main attention is focused on their manipulative impact on the consciousness of the recipient. The basic peculiarities of the political discourse are mentioned. The motives of using euphemisms in the political discourse have been singled out. The main factors evoking the usage of euphemy in political speeches are examined. The dark side of language euphemizing is outlined. Euphemisms are analyzed as a tool that helps people to perceive the truth that they would rather not hear at all. There are examples which indicate the usage of the “doublespeak” by politicians in order to achieve some pragmatic aims. There is a rising tendency to avoid speaking directly about some topics. To be politically correct not always means to be honest. To euphemize is one more convenient way to lie and to alter the perception of the bitter truth. The main peculiarities of the political communication which make it totally different from the language of everyday usage are revealed. The conclusion offers the suggestions for the future research of the functioning of euphemisms not only in the political but also in other types of discourse.
    Key words: euphemy, euphemism, manipulation, political discourse, political correctness

  14. Kotys O. Stammering: Linguistic, Physical and Social Aspects. - C. 104-109.
    The article analyses the phenomenon of stammering from various perspectives: linguistic, physical and social. A lot of attention is paid to the reason why people stammer, classification of stammering as well as experimental research and approaches to treatment.
    David Crystal defines stammering as a speech production disability and includes neurological, psychological and anatomical steps required to encode a linguistic message and make it ready for transmission. Stammering usually occurs when people are not able to control rhythm and timing of their speech. This may happen due to physical as well as psychological reasons. Stammering usually starts at the age from one to three and can be overcome when treated consistently. There are at least seven types of stammering and they are usually accompanied by non-verbal behavior (grimacing, twitching etc.). Nearly 2% of adults stammer, while 10% of children do. Many famous people suffered from stammering, nevertheless very many others failed to be successful because of the psychological barrier caused by this symptom.
    The article reviews modern practices directed towards successful treatment of stammerers including very simple practices and more sophisticated ones.
    Key words: speech pathology, language disability, stammering (stuttering), symptoms, cerebral, hemispheres, experiment, treatment.

  15. Kozak S., Blyzniuk L. A Description of Man and Nature in Frame Structures (on the Material of English Fiction Discourse). - C. 18-22.
    In recent years we can observe an increasing interest of the scientists to the processes of formation, existence and transfer of human knowledge. Especially the scholars in the field of artificial intelligence try to create such structures which would contain encyclopaedia data about certain objects and situations. This process stimulates the development of the frame theories.
    The present article is dedicated to the study of frame structures which describe man and nature in literary discourse. The cognitive-pragmatic peculiarities of the frame structures which represent frames “Man” and “Nature” in English literary discourse have been analyzed on the material of the literary prose work of the English writer of the end of the XIX-th century Thomas Hardy “Tess of the d’Urbervilles”.
    The structure of the frames “Man” and “Nature” has been described; in particular the main terminals which belong to the aforementioned frames have been determined. The analysis of the lexical units which represent the terminals of the frames “Man” and “Nature” in Thomas Hardy’s novel “Tess of the d’Urbervilles” has been carried out.
    On the basis of the analyzed frame structures we have studied the role of the frames “Man” and “Nature” in the interpretation of author’s pragmatics in fiction discourse. It was determined that the frame as a cognitive structure reveals its properties most significantly in those frame structures which describe nature not only as an environment but also illustrate interconnection of man and nature, showing up the inner world of the characters by means of the description of their perception of outer world.
    Key words: man, nature, frame, frame structure, terminal, terminal element.

  16. Krysanova T. Cognitive Metaphor and Cognitive Metonymy of Anger in English Cinema Discourse- C. 109-115.
    The article examines anger cognitive metaphor and metonymy characteristic for English cinema discourse. Imaginary nature of cinema discourse lies in its ability to narrate, creating images that are metaphorical and symbolic. Cognitive metaphor and cognitive metonymy reflect the generic and specific features of anger. Among the anger cognitive metaphors in cinema discourse one can mention universal conventional metaphors such as ANGER IS CONTAINER WITH BOILING LIQUID, ANGER IS A FIRE, ANGER IS A RIVAL IN A STRUGGLE, ANGER IS A WILD ANIMAL, ANGER IS NATURE, ANGER IS FORCE, ANGER IS MADNESS. They emphasize the intensity and power of anger pointing out the danger, which an expression of anger brings to communicants .Cognitive metaphors can be combined with the parts of a human body which are associated with feelings or things that are relevant to these bodies.
    Among specific metaphors, identified in cinema discourse, one can distinguish such cognitive metaphors as ANGER IS COLD, ANGER IS AN INSECT, ANGER IS PAIN, ANGER IS THREAT, ANGER IS EVIL SPIRIT. They reflect the images created with the help of lingual and non-lingual cinematic means.
    Cinema discourse can be regarded as the source of non-lingual metonimies. Cognitive metonymy in cinema discourse is realized verbally and cinematic or only cinematic – DARKNESS, NATURAL DISASTER, EXPLOSION, HUMAN BEHAVIOR IN ANGER IS THE BEHAVIOR OF A CRAZY PERSON. The defined metaphors and metonymies are based on physiological, psychological and behavioral characteristics of a person who is experiencing the emotion of anger.
    Cognitive metaphor and metonymy as a tool of cognition are capable of converting knowledge about abstract concepts that exist in the human mind into material models that make up the world.
    Key words: anger, cinema discourse, cognitive metaphor, cognitive metonymy, emotion.

  17. Kyiak T. Interсultural Communication, Discourse and Translation. - C. 83-91.
    This article deals with the hypothesis about the discourse factor preserve of in the process of translation of different text genres. The translation depending on the object of translation in the “poetry – narrative literature – scientific and technical texts with the low abstraction level – with the medium abstraction level- with the high abstraction level” aspect. In this paper, specific features of the notion of culture have been analyzed. This article also deals with the interplay and interconnection between separate cultures. The history of the world-famous city of Kainurgardur has been recounted. Problems with respect to translation difficulties in some works have been identified. The distinctive features of text and discourse have been singled out. Attention is also devoted to the differences between textual and cross-cultural communication. The difficulties which arise in the process of translation from one language into another have been analyzed. It is affirmed that the main reason for this lies in the differences involving key ethnic concepts. It is demonstrated that in the cultures of different nations, there are significant differences between the terminological systems, and particularly in the definitions of key concepts. It is interesting to note that the more remote the culture is, the more different is the understanding of the notions. It has been stressed that discourse is a factor in cross-cultural communication as well as a category of translation.
    Key words: discourse, translation, text, abstraction, genre, level, aspect, cross-cultural communication.

  18. Lavrynenko H. Stylistic Functions of Professional Jargonisms in the Language of German Periodicals<br /> - C. 116-122.

    It is well known, that different language units, apart from carrying their principal communicative function, are capable to fulfill several additional functions. Among these additional functions the stylistic function can be distinguished, which expresses it’s influence by extending the same sense in the variety of different lexico-syntactic forms. Differentiating the stylistic phenomena into two categories – the stylistic means that became the language instrument and the occasional, which can be actualized only in context, the researcher regards it as possible to distinguish the stylistic function of ordinary words. Being occurred in the context of the press language, the mentioned words can develop the stylistic function in different variants. An explanation is provided relating to stylistic functions which profession-related jargon performs in the press. Consideration is given to extralinguistic vocabulary, involving the intentional creation of stylistic effects by means of specific patterns of organization and usage of the language units under examination. It has been found that words which have a neutral ‘coloration’ in the layer of general language acquire a brighter coloration when used in more specific contexts, as expressed in stylistic functions and their subsets which are figuratively expressive and emotionally evaluative.
    Key words: professional jargonisms, stylistic function, the unexpectedness effect, humoristic effect, expressive-communicative function, expressive-image function, emotional-evaluative function.

  19. Levchuk A. Intimization and Graphical Means of Text Organization. - C. 122-127.
    The article deals with the influence of text graphical means on the implementation of the intimization communicative strategy. It demonstrates their influence on the communicative tactics of the addressee involvement on the level of discourse.
    Reference has been made to the intimization communicative strategy as well as the system of linguistic graphical means that create the effect of ingenuous, immediate and friendly communication via a fiction text and can be used to shorten the narrative distance between the author and the reader.
    This article reveals the types of the addresser and the addressee of the literary discourse and their roles in the process of intimization. Communication via fiction text, performed in the situation of a distant contact through a written channel, is interpersonal and always asynchronic. Graphically prominent text parts attract reader`s attention, highlighting important elements and creating the effect of the direct communication with the author – the core condition of the intimization communicative strategy.
    One of the ways to implement communicative strategy of intimization is to involve the reader, via the system of text graphical organization, to the author`s individual world model, thus shortening the distance between them and imitating synchronic communication.
    Means of graphic organization intensify text semantics; add expressiveness and pragmatic value to a message. Punctuation marks, capitalization etc. are used to highlight other means of intimization, whereas visual text parts can perform this function independently. Application of the stylistic graphical methods increases the number of communicative channels used to send information to a reader and improves the understanding.
    Key words: intimization, discourse, text, graphical means, visual text, communicative strategy, communicative tactics.

  20. Makaruk L., Synthesis of Verbal and Non-Verbal Devices in English Communication. - C. 138-142.
    Synthesis of Verbal and Non-Verbal Devices in English CommunicationIn this article different types of non-verbal signs have been analyzed. The peculiarities and the functioning of these signs have been described. The interdependence and interconnection of verbal and non-verbal components of communication have been analyzed. The distinct features of verbal and non-verbal means of communication as constituent parts of different sign systems have been identified. Attention is directed to the fact that a distinct feature of modern English written communication is the symbiosis of multiple semiotic resources which belong to several different sign systems. Graphic play has been analyzed as a part of graphic linguistics. Extensive attention has been focused on the terminology that is connected with graphic linguistics, and the means and types of graphic play which are an integral part of the process have been defined. Attention has been devoted to its origin, and to the development and usage of its terminology. Non-verbal devices have been divided into several groups taking into account their common features. Prospective avenues for further investigations have been suggested, with particular attention given to the most recent patterns in modern society which involve the satisfaction of their communicative requirements.
    Key words: verbal and non-verbal means, multimodality, semiotic resources, paralinguistic components, written communication.

  21. Martyniuk O. Language Means of Expression of Comparative Constructions in the French literary discourse (on the material of the novel of Yasmina Khadra “What the Day Owes the Night”)- C. 143-147.
    The article examines main types of comparisons that are used in the discourse (on the material of the novel of Yasmina Khadra “What the Day Owes the Night”). The ways of using by the author a stylistic device for comparing the characteristics of the characters appearance, actions, processes, phenomena of nature, and so on are characterized. The lexical and grammatical models of comparison are described. In terms of semantics, comparative constructions in the discourse can be divided into the following groups: comparisons of expressing physical characteristics, intellectual and emotional characteristics. Any real phenomenon can serve the object of comparisons. Most often people, their appearance, character, ability are compared with animals, plants, objects, natural phenomena. A special originality of the author is felt in the description of landscapes.
    In addition, by analyzing the objects of comparison, it was found that one object can be interpreted through another based on certain common properties like subject and object of comparison. In most cases, these associations have a veiled sign of comparison.
    It was revealed that in comparative constructions the components themselves are not so important, but those associations that arise as a result of linguistic comparison. The interactive features of comparison were analysed, namely the impact on the recipient of the text, the management of its communicative and cognitive activity in accordance with the intent of the author. It is proved that the comparison helps to reveal the wealth of associative nuances of artistic speech, as it is the mechanism of verbalization of mental and emotional state of the characters.
    Key words: trope, comparisons, association, characterization, lexical and grammatical models.

  22. Mazyar O. Various Approaches to Conversational Analyse. - C. 133-137.
    The urgency of investigation is determined by constant increase of scientific interest to the interplay of social relations and language. The aim of the work is based on the survey and classification of the existing approaches to the study of conversational analysis. The object of the article is modern theories and methodologies for the research of mechanisms of interaction of the speech act.
    The speech is considered as the collective action which is subordinated to the restrictions of social and cultural character. Every communication has its own structure and dynamics, the cultural presuppositions of which are determined by the content of all the remarks. The interlocuters decide what contextual category to choose: class, cultural or social identity. The collocutors can exchange remarks in turn or simultaneously. One of the crucial tasks of every speech act is its organization according to the principle of the alteration of remarks. A turn of speech is an interaction unit which can contain the majority of linguistic means: beginning with independent lexical constructions up to phrases, exclamations and other syntagmas. The important task of the ethnomethodology that is the problem of the existence of conterminal pairs is analysed in article. Conterminal pairs determine the structure of the dialog because these ones are the mutual component which is the basis of speech. Dialogue and conterminal pairs condition the problems around which the discussion develops. Thus, turns of speech and conterminal pairs are considered by the researchers as products of local system of organization which is conditioned by interpretations interactive strategies which depend on each culture and functional restrictions which influence the speech itself and system of communication on the whole.
    Communication is one of the most urgent linguistic investigations. Researchers emphasize linguistic peculiarities of speech and its social and cultural features. What happens during the speech act is not only linguistic competence of addresser and addressees, but structural and conditioned scheme. On the other hand there is distinct connection between speech and language on the whole, that is conversation is the means of communication which is based on diachronic and synchronic processes of language.
    Key words: communication, interplay, turns of speech, diachronic, synchronic.

  23. Navrotska I. Lexico-Semantic Aspect of Distiguishing Between Homonymy and Polysemy of English Nouns. - C. 147-153.
    The problem concerning distinguishing between homonymy and polysemy constitutes a real challenge for linguists in general and for lexicographers in particular and this article represents its practical solution. The essence of the problem can be explained from the viewpoint, that the notion and the meaning of the word may not always coincide which accounts for the difference of presentation of words not only in monolingual dictionaries but also in bilingual ones.
    The objective of our study is to find the most optimal way of distinguishing between homonymy and related phenomena such as pure polysemy, lexico-semantic variation, syncretism, heterosemy and homonymy of English nouns. These are the names of five internal lexico-semantic categories within the system of lexical meaning of the noun and the ratio between them varies depending on the semantics of the noun. Thus every meaning, called a lexico-semantic unit (LSO) in our study (according to the theoretical grounds of L. Kudrevatykh) is assigned a certain status due to the pointers picked up from the definitions of 353 nouns which were taken from 4 dictionaries. A pointer is the minimal word or word combination of the definition directly pointing at the meaning. The pointers referring to basically polysemous categories: pure polysemy, lexico-semantic variation, syncretism and sometimes heterosemy should have something in common. For instance, they may belong to a closely related thematic group or be hypo-hyperonically, metonymically or metaphorically related. We have found that heterosemy appears in cases when the explanation, drawn from etymological dictionaries is obscure for the speaker without special knowledge of additional connotations. Though the number of homonymous LSOs prevails over heterosemous LSOs, and there are nouns which have heterosemous LSOs but no homonymic ones, heterosemy shows the potential of the noun to develop towards homonymy.
    In the study we have used such criteria of distinguishing between homonymy and related phenomena: the etymological criterion, the formal-semantic criterion, the criterion of identical word formation ranges and the semantic-transformational one.
    Summing up, we should admit that the line between polysemous lexico-semantic categories and homonymy is very fragile. The evidence of homonymy cannot only be found in the dictionaries, it should be explored functionally, in the corpora.
    Key words: distinguishing between homonymy and polysemy, etymological criterion, formal-semantic criterion, criterion of identical word-formation ranges, semantic-transformational criterion, lexico-semantic categories, lexico-semantic units, heterosemy.

  24. Nizhegorodtseva L. Author ′s abstract of scientific paper. - C. 153-160.
    The purpose of this article is to highlight the essential features of the theory of prototypes and to focus on the theoretical and practical aspects of arrangement of verbalized units that make the basis of the lexico-semantic field INTELLECTUAL ACTIVITY. Some scientists (Greeraerts 1989, Rosh 1978) mark out four characteristics of a prototype that are frequently mentioned:
    1) prototypical categories cannot be defined by means of a single set of criterial (necessary and sufficient) attributes;
    2) prototypical categories exhibit a family-resemblance structure, or more generally, their semantic structure takes form of a radial set of clustered and overlapping meanings;
    3) prototypical categories exhibit degrees of category membership; not eevery member is equally representative for a category;
    4) prototypical categories are blurred at the edges.
    Practically the same features could be traced in any lexico-semantic field which makes it possible to integrate one set of theoretical postulates into another one. Thus, interpretations of prototypical categories that participate in the design of the lexical fields are also highlighted in the article.
    Quantitative stratification of lexical units and lexico-semantic versions is analysed within the limits of schemata of the lexico-semantic field INTELLECTUAL ACTIVITY. Considering the data of quantitative analysis of lexico-semantic variants that name parts of the lexico-semantic field, the model of prototypical category of the investigated field is presented. Taking into account concepts, which are explicated by the slots of frame model, the structure of prototypical category INTELLECTUAL ACTIVITY is proved. On the other hand, the reconstructed conceptual model allowed to offer an explanation of a number of linguistic phenomena, on the other hand it helps to understand patterns of organization of a certain area of the lexical system.
    Key words: cognitive linguistics, frame, prototype, lexico-semantic field, conceptual analysis.

  25. Novak H., Leshchuk J. Artistic (individual) concept TIME in the poems of Paul Celan: peculiarities of its verbalization. - C. 127-133.
    The article deals with the modeling of the artistic concept TIME in the poetry of the German speaking poet of the Jewish origin Paul Celan. The concept is considered to be a dynamic value, the semantic structure of which is predetermined both by the changes, taking place in the society and in the consciousness of a separate person.
    The reasons for such a study are outlined in the article: the poetic texts of Paul Celan have been analyzed from the perspective of the literature, their lingual-cognitive character has not been properly researched yet. The poetic-cognitive approach allows us to analyze both the lingual and the extralingual plains of the poet’s texts.
    The poems of Paul Celan represent a coded system of mental framework of the poet, his artistic and aesthetic consciousness as well as the ways of conceptualizing of reality of that time from the perspective of Holocaust. The structure of the artistic concept is presented in the article as a hierarchical unity of the three elements ‒ ethno-cultural element, individual component and textual features. Ethno-cultural component of the artistic concept of Paul Celan includes texts of Jewish mysticism, ethics, the Bible and myths; individual component reflects the poet’s attitude to the world from the perspective of Holocaust; textual component, or explicit plan explicate the peculiarities of the verbalization of the artistic concept in the poems of Paul Celan.
    Key words: artistic concept, authorism, metaphor, oxymoron, synesthesia.

  26. Rohach O. The Language of War. - C. 161-167.
    This article is devoted to the semantic, structural and etymological analysis of the language of war that reflects the relationship between the participants of various military conflicts with consideration of the extralinguistic factors that caused its appearance and usage. Special attention is paid to the fact that the language of war is stylistically marked and that is why every slur, every stereotype, every nationalistic and racist assumption is a war without weapons. Words of racist and nationalistic intolerance can hurt, and in world history there are many examples of effective propaganda and informational wars. Such words may only be the reason, but their effect is potentially lethal. That is why their power must be studied and taken into a consideration. An analysis of the language of war also presupposes studies of national history, international relations and economic and cultural relations. The extralinguistic factors, mainly the historic ones, which explain the reasons why such words came into being have been taken into consideration. Special attention has been paid to the most productive word building patterns according to which the analyzed words were coined, such as affixation, blending and different types of shortening.
    Key words and phrases: language of war, national history, word building patterns, slur, stereotype.

  27. Rohach Y. Application of the Distributional and Descriptive Methods in Studies of Ideograms and Pictograms. - C. 161-171.
    This article is devoted to the description of the practical application of the two main methods of linguistic research: the descriptive and distributional methods. Special attention has been paid to considering these two methods and describing their procedures and practical applications, doing an analysis of two paralingual units – pictograms and idiograms – and then achieving conclusive results. We discovered that with the help of the descriptive method it was possible to describe and analyze the structure and typology of the pictograms and idiograms that are widely used in present day Australian newspapers. Attention was given to the correlation between the verbal and non-verbal elements of creol texts and to the realization of paradigmatic and syntagmatic relations of pictograms and idiograms. These connections point out the connectivity and cooperation of the visual units with the verbal units of a language system on phonological, morphological, lexico-semantic and syntactic levels. Realizing their combinability, pictograms and ideograms can be combined with units of the same type or with one or several verbal units. Besides such cases, their combinability can be implemented inside a pictogram, within the frames of an advertising message, a newspaper article or a newspaper in general, for example, in its title.
    Key words and phrases: pictograms and idiograms, descriptive and distributional methods, syntagmatic and paradigmatic relations, Australian mass-media means

  28. Rozvod E. The role of streotypes in the formation and implementations of linguacultural concepts (on the basis of the concept SUN). - C. 172-178.
    The article deals with the notion of stereotype in the contemporary linguistic cultural studies. A special attention has been paid to its types, functions and ways of realization in language. The reference has been made to the subject and object of the implementation of the linguistic cultural concepts as well as to the fulfillment of the set tasks and the methods used in this research.
    In has been pointed out in the article that in 1922 the term stereotype was introduced into the social, cultural and psychological studies by the American scholar Walter Lippmann in his book “Public Opinion”. He understood stereotypes as pictures in our heads which simplify reality and said that stereotypes might not be a complete picture of the world but they are a picture of a possible world to which we were adapted.
    Different definitions of the notion stereotype in various fields of scientific knowledge have been analyzed. Thus we can assume that the main features of a stereotype are generalization, emotional colouring and stability.
    An important place in the study of the concepts` structure is occupied by stereotypes. Stereotypes can be true or partially true, but they are strong bias that can distort the reality and its perception. However, the system of stereotypes is the core of our national traditions, it protects our place in society and allows us to see the world and to perceive it and understand.
    All linguistic signs of a national culture are built on the perception of not only the meanings of words but of visual and auditory associations that native speakers bear. All the concepts and images are reflected in symbols, linguistic signs of culture, phraseology and create a national English language world.
    Key words: stereotype, culture, nation, linguistic map of the world, concept, structure.

    Applying content-based instruction for teaching Business English to Economics students realizes the methodological paradigm declared by the European Framework on Foreign Languages.The tasks of the work are to analyze the ways CBI is realized by means of the teaching complex in ESPBE Intelligent Business. The author applied the critical analysis of literary sources, learning and summarizing the positive teaching experience, observation and test teaching. The performed analysis proves that CBI applied by the authors of Intelligent Business uses the foreign language as a means of teaching content, and the latter, in its turn, serves as a means of learning the foreign language. Having analyzed the teaching course Intelligent Business, we can see that by means of integrating all four basic speech skills the authors try to suggest their ways to form a high level of the communicative competence of students. In order to achieve this purpose the course models professionally authentic activities using authentic teaching materials with the selected topics and the logical grammar content, being oriented on maintaining the self-direction of students.
    Key words: Content-based Instruction, English for Specific Purposes, Business English.

  30. Sorokina L. Communicative Strategy vs. Manipulative Strategy. - C. 187-191.
    The article deals with the analysis of a communicative strategy as a device for manipulative communication. The latter is represented in the article as a special type of cognitive and pragmatic activity. The characteristics of various approaches to the study of communicative strategies and tactics is given. The comparative analysis of communicative and manipulative strategies is performed. The differentiation of two types of goals: pragmatic and constructive (defined by O.M. Morohovskyi) has become the key element in the determination of distinction between communicative and manipulative strategies. The particularities of manipulative strategies and tactics functioning are demonstrated. The analysis of a notion of strategy proves that manipulative communicative strategy is determined by the existence of two pragmatic aims – one of which fulfils the role only functionally, i.e. is a transitionary aim, the second one is regarded as a the real aim of a manipulator. The interactive planning process of a manipulative strategy involves a duality of manipulator’s communicative background assumption: an intention to satisfy his / her own requirements, using the addressee’s requirements without showing a conflict of interests. In the study manipulative strategy is regarded as an integrative notion that combines two aspects of strategic action – cognitive and verbal.
    Key words: manipulative communication, strategy, tactic, pragmatic aim, dialogical discourse.

  31. Tarasiuk I. Психолінгвістичний аспект аналізу семантики мовлення дітей мігрантів. - C. 192-198.
    The results of diagnostic of speech semantic of immigrant children with the help of an associative test have been described in the article. The reactions to the word stimuli were classified into logical type of connections (central and peripheral logical reactions) and their grammar features (syntagmatic and paradigmatic reactions). The interpretation of got results is presented stepwise in the article. At first it is shown the comparative analyses of two groups of respondents – the children of ethnic German families and the children of immigrants. Then there are demonstrated the differences between types of visited schools and gender aspect. The children of ethnic German families feel their native speech intuitively, but the children of immigrants face not only the problem of adapting to the new cultural and social environment, but to the speech as well. That is why it is not easy for them to recognize the center and the peripheral means of words. In many cases, the words by the children of immigrants, as lexical units, don’t have their conceptual means, don’t reflect their view of reality, don’t express their experience, but only show the direct lexical means. The results of the associative experiment demonstrate the influence of social environment of students on their speech adaptation. There are also some gender peculiarities of their speech adaptation figured out.
    Keywords: the children of immigrants, association, associative experiment, word stimuli, word reaction, logical central, peripheral connections, grammatical syntagmatic and paradigmatic connections.

  32. Trotsiuk A., Honchar K. Adjectival Lexico-Semantic Microfield of Indifference in Modern English. - C. 41-46.
    The article deals with the lexico-semantic microfield of adjectives expressing the meaning “indifference” in modern English. The analysis is based on lexicographical sources. The investigated lexico-semantic microfield is a constituent part of the nominative macrofield of indifference. The structure of the adjectival microfield consists of a nucleus, co-nuclear and peripheral areas, boundaries between which are blurred, as an individual lexico-semantic variant can be a constituent of several zones. The analyzed microfield is reconstructed on the basis of semantic analysis of lexical units with a meaning “indifferent”. The nucleus of the investigated adjectival lexico-semantic microfield is an adjective “indifferent”, as it possesses distinct features of the field dominants (highly frequent, abstract, stylistically neutral) and can replace any of the members of the paradigm for it is the main representative of this paradigm. Componential analysis of the nuclear lexeme makes it possible to single out the archiseme of the researched microfield “disinterested, unemotional”. This archiseme is a field identifier and its notion is more or less presented in the definitions of all units of adjectival microfield of indifference. Co-nuclear zone consists of the synonyms of indifferent and other lexemes, definitions of which contain explicitly expressed archiseme which is “disinterested, unemotional”. Close periphery zone of the adjectival lexico-semantic microfield of indifference consists of those units that are slightly different in their meaning from the nuclear lexeme. Adjectives that belong to the close periphery may be classified into three groups according to the common semantic characteristic: a) those that have the seme “lacking emotions and other feelings”, b) lexical units grouped by the seme “not showing any concern or sympathy to others” and c) the adjectives with the common seme “not affected/not influenced by others”. Lexical units that have lost some main features and gained new qualifying meanings belong to the remote periphery of the investigated field. They are classified according to the two common semes: “not wanting or wishing to do anything” and “not willing to make any effort or improve anything”. Nominative units with low frequency and limitation in usage refer to the marginal layer of the adjectival lexico-semantic microfield of indifference.
    Key words: lexico-semantic microfield, archiseme, nucleus, qualifying seme, indifference, componential analysis.

  34. Yushak V. The Conceptual Metaphor SOFTWARE IS A MAGICAL CREATURE/THING in the Onomastic Group of Softonyms. - C. 204-209.
    In the research softonyms are defined as modern English proper names used to designate computer programmes. This study reveals that one of the main means of software products’ nomination is metaphor.
    The metaphorical softonyms realize persuasive function – they draw computer users’ attention to software products. Such names evoke positive images, associations and emotions. The study shows that metaphor is an effective means of establishing a contact between software developers and computer users. Softonyms, built on the basis of metaphorical transfer, contain some hidden information. A computer user, activating his thinking and imagination, decodes the message, created by a software developer.
    The article studies the conceptual metaphor SOFTWARE IS A MAGICAL CREATURE/THING as one of the means of softonyms wordformation. Through the metaphorical projection from the source domain MAGICAL CREATURE/THING into the target domain SOFTWARE the functions of computer programmes are compared with unrealistic and super-power features of magical creatures. The names of mythological creatures in softonyms structures create the effect of mystery, draw nearer to something unreal and mystical. Software developers, using famous symbolic proper names in softonyms, provide computer programmes with a certain set of characteristics. Metaphorical softonyms possess a high level of recognition as there is no need to represent the behavior models of mythological, historical, literary heroes to the representatives of the English linguocultural community. The study of software products names proves that the conceptual metaphor SOFTWARE IS A MAGICAL CREATURE/THING actualizes the charactersistics of computer programmes, important for the software users, such as power, high speed, ease of use, innovation, multifunctionality.
    Key words: softonym, nomination, conceptual metaphor, source domain, target domain.

  35. Zasiekin S. Literary Translation Dynamics in the Context of “Retranslation Hypothesis”. - C. 71-76.
    The present paper outlines an attempt to verify the validity of the “Retranslation Hypothesis” suggested by A. Berman (1990) using parallel English-Ukrainian corpus of translated fiction. According to the hypothesis, each subsequent, i.e. more recent (re)translations tend to be more source culture oriented than first translations. This tendency is viewed as a possible translation universal. The principal sources were The Fellowship of the Ring, and The Hobbit, or, There and Back Again by J. R. R. Tolkien as the source texts, and their Ukrainian target versions produced by A. Nemirova, A. Veselovskyi, O. Mokrovolskyi, O. O’Lear. Among the main markers of the analysis were the number of negative constructions, causal discourse markers on the syntactic level. The use of these discourse markers by the translator revealed a phenomenon known as ‘explicitation’. The lexical markers were represented by toponyms and anthroponyms being more or less “domesticated” to the target cultural background. The obtained results of the study show the hypothesis clearly has a general value for the selected English–Ukrainian parallel corpus of fiction.
    Key words: “Retranslation Hypothesis”, translation universal, translation of fiction, parallel corpus.

    In our article we try to elucidate the intercultural aspect of word interpretations from the point of view of German linguistic personality and the correspondence with the Arabic perception. The appearance of such linguistics differences are constantly to observe while process of communication that explain the relation between language behavior and interpretation of words. The consequence appearing are put intentionally certain cultural, religious, social, national and linguistic features of communicants in which meet different conceptual systems and new associations appear different. In the German perception of Arabic words is learned the language of a culture, because language reflects primarily the culture of ethnic groups. These word interpretations could sometimes be completely misunderstood because it is not related to the proper application of other Community language or social group. These phenomenons occur actually in the Arabic and German linguistics communities or social groups. Besides several factors take part in the appearance of words interpretations between Arabs and German during the communications process, for example cultural, social, religion and political incidents which are distinguished by constant mutual effects and reactions between Arabic world and Germany. By using Arabic words in a German context can be the meaning of word either comprehend other falsely interpreted and introduced in a context because of the considerable ignorance of the other communicant. Nowadays such observations are varying in different words and expression, particularly in the German and Arabic language behavior. The formation and development of language personality of a person occurs primarily through the process of interpretation of the meanings of words, because the interpretation of these concepts is understood as an important component of his linguistic identity.
    The importance of social factors for the formation and perception of linguistic identity is that the language environment of the individual is transmitted to him through social and linguistic interactions.
    Key words: intercultural communication, language personality, interpretation, perception, intercultural semantics, interaction.
