Article
This article deals with translating South Slavic deictic verbs. Specifically, we consider translations among Bulgarian, Croatian, and Serbian. Deictic verbs are verbs whose interpretation is dependent on the location of speech-act participants (Fillmore 1997), such as come and go. In research on Slavic, certain motion verbs prefixes have been discu...
Article
In this article the phrase “extreme speech” is used to encompass both hate speech and impoliteness. Legislation against hate speech has been passed in many countries, while work on defining phenomena related to hate speech is still ongoing. As a rule, there is no legislation prohibiting impoliteness, and thus impoliteness is often perceived as a le...

U ovom radu razmatramo komitativnost i instrumentalnost kao semantičke kategorije te kako su obrađene u odabranim hrvatskim gramatikama od prve hrvatske gramatike, Kašićevih Institutiones linguae Illyricae (1604), do konca 19. stoljeća, odnosno do pojave Maretićeve Gramatike i stilistike hrvatskoga ili srpskoga književnog jezika (1899) i pobjede hr...
Article
This is a comparative study of the verbal prefix do- in two South Slavic languages, Bulgarian (Blg.) and Croatian (Cro.). Although these two languages show many similarities in the meaning of the verb stems and prefixation patterns, there are some unusual differences that may confuse foreign learners of Slavic, who expect identical or similar base...

Article
This article explores how migrants were visually presented during the so-called migration crisis in southeast Europe in the fall of 2015. It considers photographs from two public broadcasters’ news portals: Slovenia's rtvslo.si and Croatia's hrt.hr. The focus is on a specific category of images we label subjectless images; that is, images visually...
Article
This article deals with the approach to the dative case in Kajkavian and Štokavian grammars from 1604 to 1859. We concentrate on seventeen grammars, primarily focusing on their presentation of the meaning of the dative case. Remarks related to the meaning of the dative are mainly found in the parts of these grammars discussing syntax, and to a less...
Article
This study compares the semantic networks of the verbal prefix u - in two South Slavic languages, Bulgarian ( blg .) and Croatian ( cro .), in a cognitive linguistics framework using two databases of prefixed verbs drawn from dictionaries and corpora. We point to similarities and overlapping categories in the semantic networks of u - in blg . and c...
Article
This article investigates the representation of migration and migrants in Croatian and Serbian public broadcasters’ online portals during the “migrant crisis” in 2015/2016. The study shows that there are similarities in representations in the two portals at both the macro- and micro-linguistic levels. The migrants are generally represented in posit...

Interpreters in the public sector in Norway interpret in a variety of institutional encounters, and the interpreters evaluate the majority of these encounters as polite. However, some encounters are evaluated as impolite, and they pose challenges when it comes to interpreting impoliteness. This issue raises the question of whether interpreters shou...
Article
Ova analiza razmatra kako se postavke kognitivne lingvistike mogu povezati s različitim pitanjima sinonimnih odnosa u jeziku. Prvi je dio analize posvećen onim postavkama koje su važne za proučavanje sinonimije, posebice enciklopedijskom pogledu na značenje, prototipnoj organizaciji jezičnih kategorija, te kontekstualnoj uvjetovanosti konstruiranja...
Article
U radu se analizira glagolski prefix o(b)- u hrvatskome jeziku iz kognitivnolingvističke perspektive, s posebnim osvrtom na povezanost njegovih naizgled različitih značenja, te na proširenja njegovih prostornih značenja u neprostorne domene. Prototipno značenje glagola s prefiksom o(b)- uključuje ideju kružnoga kretanja u konkretnim prostornim dome...
Article
Članak se bavi rezultativnim konstrukcijama koje se u lingvističkim analizama često smatraju podskupom sekundarnih predikata. Rezultativno značenje u njemačkom i engleskom često se ostvaruje pridjevima koji su na prvi pogled slični depiktivima. Takvi su rezultativi u hrvatskom vrlo rijetki. U analizi se upućuje na alternativne načine ostvarivanja r...
Article
This article addresses identity construction through social symbolic meanings conveyed in discussions about scripts, primarily Cyrillic, in Croatian public discourse. We focus on discussions in various Croatian online sources from 2013 to 2015 centred on the topic of “Cyrillic as a symbol” and serving as an umbrella for discursive negotiations of (...

This article addresses means of expressing and implying emotions (Langlotz, Locher 2012) in realizations of impoliteness in written discourse thematizing language and identity in Croatian and Montenegrin media in 2010 and 2011. Realizations of impoliteness often relate to communicating an emotional stance that can trigger emotional responses in rea...
Article
This study compares the verbal prefix o(b)- in two South Slavic languages, Croatian and Bulgarian, from a cognitive linguistic perspective. We focus on the problems arising when constructing the semantic network of this polysemous prefix, particularly on 1) isolating the prefix's meaning from the meaning of the base verb and 2) identifying core/dom...

Introduction: Constructing Balkan Identity in Recent Media Discourses - Volume 74 Issue 2 - Andreja Vezovnik, Ljiljana Šarić
Article
The verbs ‘doći’ in Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian (= BCS) and ‘dojda’ in Bulgarian (= Blg.) are among the most frequent motion verbs. They are used in both concrete contexts (of human motion and motion of various objects) and metaphorical contexts in which features of concrete motion are transferred into abstract domains. A semantic examination of suc...
Article
U suvremenim b/h/s standardima, u- je fonetski i značenjski spoj dvaju različitih koncepata od kojih su oba prosterne prirode: jedan se odnosi na sadržavanje i slikovnu shemu spremnika (psl. vb), a drugi na odmicanje (psl. u). Ti su naoko suprotni koncepti vidljivi, primjerice, u glagolima uskočiti i uteći. Na temelju baze podataka s više od 1100 u...
Article
This article analyzes Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian (BCS) and Bulgarian (Blg.) verbs prefixed with od /ot- ‘(away) from’ from a cognitive linguistics perspective, focusing on spatial meaning extensions into non-spatial domains, as well as similarities and differences between the languages in question. The prototypical sense of these verbs involves a pat...
Article
This paper examines the meaning of the Croatian verbal prefix na-'onto' in a cognitive linguistic framework. Based on the analysis of a comprehensive inventory of contemporary verbs and corpora examples, the analysis identifies a few subgroups of na-verbs showing how seemingly distinct meanings relate to the central spatial image schema of the spat...
Article
This article addresses various constructions of language identity in disputes in the Croatian media in 2006, and in the Croatian and Montenegrin media in 2010 and 2011. In Croatia, the language disputes during these periods were triggered by the publication of two linguistics books perceived to be threats to Croatian identity. In Montenegro, there...
Article
This article examines the semantics of the Croatian preposition uz. Its main aim is to establish a coherent semantic network of this preposition, an effort that implies elaborating how the preposition's spatial meanings of immediate proximity and upward motion are related to each other, and how these meanings are related to the meanings in non-spat...
Article
This article examines the meaning of the prefix uz- in Croatian. First, I examine this prefix in nouns, adverbs, complex prepositions, and adjectives, and in the following sections I look at the verbal prefix uz-. After identifying a few subgroups of verbs prefixed with uz- in contexts of upward motion, an examination of paths of meaning extensions...
Book

This volume examines the discursive construction of identity related to important national holidays in nine countries of Central Europe and the Balkans: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Serbia, and Slovakia....
Article
This article deals with some issues related to the semantics of verbal prefixation. The analysis is based on the use of the terms "empty prefix" and "semantically empty prefix," which are frequently found in scholarship dealing with the Slavic languages and in handbooks describing these languages. Discussing this term and its (near) synonyms from d...
Book
Since 1989, Europe’s eastern rim has been in constant flux. This collection focuses on how political and economic transformations have triggered redefinitions of cultural identity. Using discursive modes of identity construction (deconstruction, reconstruction, reformulation, and invention) the book focuses on the creation of opposition to old and...
