JĘZYKOWY OBRAZ BIZANCJUM W POLSZCZYŹNIE DAWNEJ I WSPÓŁCZESNEJ
(The Linguistic Picture of Byzantium in the Old and Contemporary Polish Language)
Abstract: Examining the linguistic picture of the world is a major field of research in Slavic linguistics, whose aim is the analysis of experience, norms, rules and value judgements assigned to interpersonal communication – with regard to their reflection in lexis, phraseology or literature. We aim to present and assess the ways of linguistic picturing of the terms Byzantium and Byzantine over the years of their presence in the lexis; i.e. since their early conceptualisations in the Polish language and culture to the present day, thus in the diachronic and synchronic perspective. The research involves various styles of the Polish language: basic, careful (scientific, artistic, religious) and colloquial, with reference to anthropocentric perception of the reality and its linguistic interpretation. In the research process, we used the methods of excerption, analysis and synthesis, as well as an interview.
