A kontrasztív kutatások egyik legizgalmasabb területének a frazeológiai vizsgálatok számítanak. Egy-egy nyelv leggazdagabb frazeológiai állományát az ún. szomatizmusok képezik, amelyek az emberi testrészek, szervek megnevezéseit tartalmazó szólásokat és közmondásokat ölelik fel. Ezúttal a magyar láb, illetve a szerb noga vezérszavú szólásokat vessz...

A Kárpát-medencében kisebbségben élő magyarok nyelve bizonyos mértékben a többségi nyelv hatása alá került, és gyakran másként beszélik a nyelvet, mint az anyaországban élő egynyelvű magyarok, hiszen a domináns nyelv szabályainak alkalmazása a másik nyelvben nyilvánvaló a nyelv minden szintjén, legfőképp lexikai szinten. Jelen tanulmányban a szerb,...

Willingness to communicate in a foreign language is a construct that is affected by a number of interrelated variables ranging from the learner's personality and intergroup climate to the situational context. Orientation towards learning a foreign language and perceived language competence have been proven to be two factors that strongly underlie w...

Дефицити у проналажењу речи једна су од карактеристика афазије. Они се у највећој мери очитују у категорији глагола, нарочито након оних лезија које резултирају настанком Брокине афазије. Будући да управо глаголи садрже саму срж реченице, истраживања везана за продукцију глагола код популације са афазијом од кључног су значаја не само за разумевање...

Based on a corpus of approximately 6.5 ho...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Starting from the hypothesis that blending as a word-formation process is non-rule governed but that there are factors that determine the ordering of constituents in lexical blends, one of which is said to be the prototypicality of the denotata of the source words, the paper first establishes the degree of prototypicality of more than forty members...

The paper has two objectives. First, it presents the results of an experiment conducted in order to see whether Kelly’s hypothesis (Kelly 1998) that the order of consituents in lexical blends depends on their prototypicality holds in a language in which blending as a word-formation process is relatively new and not as yet firmly entrenched. Native...

The present analysis examines headedness phenomena in such lexemes and is based on a corpus of about 250 established blends, created over the past two decades....
