Description

Mojca Šorli, member of the institute of literature at ZRC SAZU, published a new book entitled Semantična prozodija: leksikalni in besedilno-diskurzivni vidiki (Semantic Prosody: Lexical and Textual-Discursive Perspectives). The book focuses on corpus analysis of texts, exploring the interface between lexical and discursive aspects of pragmatic meaning. As the concept of evaluation is key to understanding how language works, the book aims to shed a new light on semantic prosody – a traditionally neglected evaluation-related phenomenon in Slovenian linguistics – as shown in selected specific areas of applied linguistics, especially lexicography and translation. The locus of this phenomenon, which determines the pragmatic function of a unit of meaning, is in the textual rather than lexical meaning. Focusing on the phenomenon, the book poses a challenge to modern lexicography.
