Introduction
Welcome to my profile! I am a linguist currently working at Széchenyi István University, Győr, Hungary. My research focuses on language, conceptualisation and culture within the framework of Cultural Linguistics, cognitive semantics and conceptual metaphor theory. Specific fields of my present linguistic investigation include Hungarian folk songs, the conceptualization of body-parts and various types of cultural metaphors.

Article
The paper explores the status of nature metaphors in Hungarian folk songs with respect to their representation and transmission of folk culture and worldview. Employing a Cultural Linguistic analysis, metaphors are observed from three perspectives: in relation to cultural schemas, generic-level conceptual metaphors, and experiential motivation. Nat...
Chapter
One of the key issues of recent linguistic trends is to understand the interaction between language and culture, which can be well observed through the identification of cultural conceptualizations (Sharifian, 2011, 2017). This study explores and compares the basic cultural conceptualizations of TREE, a concept which holds a universal symbolic stat...
Chapter
The role of the body in human cognition has received considerable attention in recent works. While the employment of the visual organ onto various abstract domains are well known, such as COGNITION, EMOTION, PERSONAL INTERACTION or CHARACTER TRAITS, relatively little attention has been paid to its function of representing CULTURAL VALUES. According...
Chapter
The relationship between metaphor and cultural experience is a widespread concern in contemporary metaphor research. A key notion to explain cross-linguistic similarities/differences is ’congruence,’ obtained between a generic-level metaphor and several specific-level ones. Employing a corpus-based research, the study analyses various sub-metaphors...
Chapter
A marital name makes a statement about women’s cultural values with respect to their family schemas. In Hungary, adopting the husband’s full name by marriage is no longer required, thus women have the opportunity to choose from seven different name structures. The paper aims to uncover the motivations behind women’s preference for marital name stru...

This paper addresses the question how the developing interest of society and technical evolution shape the formulation of novel research disciplines and how scientific results face challenges in gaining a widespread effect on society. Novel research interests often result in emerging new fields, which establish a radically different mindset on a sp...

One of the key issues of recent linguistic trends is to understand the interface between language, culture and human body. The study of the figurative usage of body part and bodily fluid terms unveils cross-cultural specificities of how they are applied to various aspects of life. Anthropologist Victor Turner considers ‘blood’ a dominant ritual sym...

The notion of embodiment refers to the bodily basis of human perceptions about the environment, and also structures our conceptual system (Gibbs 2005, Johnson 1987). This is most evidently manifested in the conceptualizations of body parts and organs and their metaphorical extension to various target domains, illustrated by the metaphor of UNDERSTA...

Our investigation identifies ways in which the transition from traditional social and cultural cognition based on real-world and real-time verbal interactions to digitalized interactions in virtual spaces takes place. We claim that the transition might induce serious concerns for traditional learning theories but promises to open new opportunities...

While establishing new communication channels, digitalization also brings forward significant changes in the practice of both individual and social learning. This paper aims to introduce a novel learning environment, and through its empirical findings it argues that a paradigm shift in learning is not only possible but also inevitable. The reasons...

A testesültség fogalma szerint testünk a környezetről szerzett tapasztalatok alapjául szolgál, így fogalmi rendszerünket is strukturálja (Gibbs 2005, Johnson 1987). Jól reprezentálja ezt a testrésznevek absztrakt tartományokra való kiterjesztése, amelynek legismertebb metaforája A MEGÉRTÉS LÁTÁS. A metafora univerzális jellegét számos kutatás alátá...
Chapter
Within the issue of embodiment (Brenzinger and Kraska-Szlenk 2014, Yu 2009, Maalej and Yu 2011, Sharifian et. al. 2008) this paper investigates how THINKING is conceptualised in Hungarian in relation to HEAD, i.e., as represented in the expressions of fej ‘head’ in the Hungarian National Corpus. It is evidenced that, in accordance with the Western...

A metafora-kutatás egyik központi kérdése a metafora és a kulturális tapasztalat összefüggése (Gibbs 2017, Kövecses 2005a, 2015, Sharifian 2011). Ennek részeként született meg a kulturális metafora fogalma, amely a kulturális nyelvészet egyik fő kategóriája (Sharifian [megjelenés alatt], 2011). A multidiszciplináris elméleti keret a kulturális meta...
Chapter
This chapter deeply relies on the observations of Chap. 8 on mental space evolvement, elaborating on the notion of grounding. Exploring the various forms of spatial grounding in folksongs is based on the presumption that the different configurations of spatial grounding have their metaphorical correspondences and take part in the construal schemas...
Chapter
The final chapter gives an overview of the research of Hungarian folksongs from a Cultural Linguistic perspective. The main findings of the two issues of cultural metaphors and cultural construal schemas are briefly summarized, giving also some general comments on the notions with an empirical basis. The numerous analyses of folksongs from various...
Chapter
Weather conditions are often represented in the imagery of nature. This section explores cultural conceptualizations related to the most frequent phenomenon of weather in love songs, wind, a natural force described mainly by its physical impact on other entities (based on the conceptual metaphor emotion is a natural force). The analysis unfolds dif...
Chapter
Cognitive reference points (CRPs) play a crucial role in meaning construal in a number of Hungarian folksongs. Building up conceptions via CRPs and their larger configurations outline a mental path, which has metaphorical correspondences. In the semantic construction, some entities are accessed from different reference points, and the denser the ne...
Chapter
This section discusses the most frequent forms of spatial metaphors (a subtype of orientational metaphors), as well as their ranges of meanings, primarily in terms of binary oppositions. Within the range of orientational metaphors in folksongs, the chapter discusses horizontal and vertical metaphors like near versus far, up versus down, upward move...
Chapter
This section explores the cultural conceptualizations of forest, one of the most frequent conceptual entities in the nature images of folksongs. Associative domains related to the notion are primarily based on the two main conceptual domains of location and structure, which also share common characteristics. More specific domains include lodging/do...

In accordance with the proposal that the images of nature in folksongs unfold primarily in the dimension of space, this chapter sums up the principals of spatial representation that apply to the analysis of texts. The first part of the chapter discusses how perceptions regarding the environment affect spatial cognition and how it serves as a basis...
Chapter
This chapter gives an overview on the nature of folk conceptualizations and the related literature, with the aim of showing how the present research connects to the studies on similar issues across languages and to underline its significance in complementing the already existing results. The research reflects on the approaches to emotion concepts a...
Chapter
This chapter explores the emergence of mental spaces in which nature imagery may be rooted in, based on Fauconnier’s mental space theory (1985, 2007). The empiric analyses of folksongs provide evidence that the development of spaces, in which the representation of nature has an underlying role, follow specific cultural construal schemas. They are c...
Chapter
This chapter introduces folksongs and their characteristics from a Cultural Linguistic perspective. They are examined in several different contexts, namely, cultural, conceptual-cognitive, discourse-pragmatic, and historical contexts in which they are embedded. The folklore discourses are deeply grounded in cultural conceptualizations and represent...
Chapter
This chapter surveys the cultural conceptualizations of river in the context of love. It is proposed that the conceptualizations of river in the folksongs can be traced back to the underlying cultural metaphor emotion as river water, which develops in several related metaphors based on the source domains flood, troubled river water, frozen river wa...
Chapter
Perspectivisation is fundamental to construal and is connected to cultural, situational and discourse contexts. In many folksongs, where nature images have an initial position, they can often be interpreted from two perspectives. More precisely, the way they are construed allows for more than one interpretation from different perspectives of the sa...
Chapter
This chapter applies a Cultural Linguistic perspective to survey the cultural conceptualisations of river in the context of love in Hungarian folksongs (Sharifian in Cultural conceptualisations and language: theoretical framework and applications. John Benjamins Publishing Company, Amsterdam, 2011, The Routledge handbook of language and culture. Ro...
Book
This book analyses the emotional message of Hungarian folksongs from a Cultural Linguistic perspective, employing a wide range of empirical devices. It combines theoretical notions with analytical devices and has a multidisciplinary essence: it relies on the latest Cultural Linguistic findings, employing spatial semantics, cognitive linguistics, co...
Article
The present paper aims at showing that ‘cognitive reference points’ (CRPs, see Rosch [1975] and Langacker [1999]) have a crucial role in construing the meaning of a significant group of Hungarian folksongs. In line with the dynamic view on construal, according to which conceptualization unfolds through processing time, the paper argues that buildin...

Communal or individual? Perspectivisation in Hungarian folksongs A widely recognized characteristics of Hungarian folksongs is the so-called natural image (known as 'sill'), whose interpretation has long been a semantic problem not fully unsolved in text linguistic and folklore studies. In this matter the notion of perspectivisation within the fram...
Article
Full-text available
special characteristic of numerous Hungarian folk songs is the so called “natural image”, which, in an initial position within the text, generates a certain anticipation about the emotional and conceptual content. However, in several cases the meaning and the conceptual relevance of the natural image is far from obvious. A fundamental element in th...

Reference points, structures, and chains in spatial semantic constructions This paper discusses the interpretation of the initial imagery typically found in Hungarian folk songs in a novel perspective, in the framework of cognitive linguistics. In spatial semantic constructions, objects are characteristically related to one another in terms of cogn...

This paper uses a cognitive linguistics approach to investigate the operation of spatial deixis in a group of Hungarian folk songs involving natural scenes. The occurrence of distal spatial deictics in a text initial position presupposes direct interaction between speaker and listener on the one hand, and directs the listener’s attention to a perce...
