The contributors explore the issues related to the ways of portraying stories and their events within a cultural and literary framework. They also examine the role of prefixes in construing events and asymmetries that exist in time-cre...

Narrative is a complex and elusive category of cognition, culture, communication and language. An attempt has been made in this article with a large enough theoretical scope to consider the possibility of treating narrative as a radial category. To this end, the definition and characterisation of radiality is provided together with explanation of w...

This article discusses the use of different syntactic options in the construal of events. 1 The examples selected for presentation and analysis come from a study by Badio (2014). This work understood construal to be non-linguistic, mental or conceptual, i.e. related to thought, whereas the term coding was reserved for the use of form to signal aspe...

The structure of oral narratives, as studied by Labov & Waletzky (1967) involves an abstract, orientation, complicating action, resolution, evaluation and coda. Narratives are presented on TV and radio news, newspapers as well as in everyday conversations (ErvinTripp & Küntay, 1997), also during children’s dramatic play (Ervin-Tripp & Küntay, 1997)...

This work provides an analysis of the fictional dialogue of the first chapter of Faith, a novel by the British writer and novelist, Lesley Pearse. The choice of the novel itself is not considered key. It is most important though that it is a recent novel, with up-to-date topics relevant to an ordinary person. The research question that this author...

Story coherence can be built in various ways. Which strategies are applied may depend on the discourse goals of the speaker/writer. The question investigated in the present study is about strategies EFL advanced users apply in the task of blaming another person for something bad that happened. The analysis of the strategies is an extension of the s...

The present work focuses on the unit of event, its psychological reality, and linguistic coding. The category of event has been defined as a segment of time with a beginning and end (Zacks & Tversky 2001). During this time something happens. Two related studies are presented based on Badio (2014). The first of them is a non-verbal study of video un...

The unique strength of the current work is the author’s attempt to create his own framework for investigating construal, (…) drawing on a number of theoretical perspectives that have never before been brought together for this purpose. Thus, the empirical part of the monograph is deeply situated within the field of Second Language Acquisition, with...

Chapter
Autor w swoim artykule podejmuje próbę omówienia zjawiska „uwagi” w kategoriach psychologicznych badań nad uwagą oraz teorii gramatyki kognitywnej reprezentowanej przez Langackera. Bardziej szczegółowe pytanie dotyczy tego, czym właściwie są obiekty uwagi oraz w jaki sposób kodowane są przy pomocy języka. Czy są to całe przedmioty, czy ich cechy, a...
