  1. The Role Of The Communicative Approach And Cooperative Learning In Higher Education.Jelena Basta - 2011 - Facta Universitatis 9 (2):125-143.
    It has been widely accepted that language is not only a system of rules, but a dynamic resource for the creation of meaning. In that sense, it is essential to distinguish between knowing various grammatical rules and being able to use these rules effectively when communicating. This view has underpinned one of the most popular approaches to language – communicative language teaching. The aim of this paper is to present the growing importance of focusing on the processes and means towards (...)

  2. The Influence Of Verbal Semantic Features On The Interpretation Of The Present Perfect In English.Ana Halas - 2011 - Facta Universitatis 9 (2):99-106.
    This paper focuses upon the relation between the semantic structure of verbs and the types of present perfect. The aim is to examine the existence of the potential influence that semantic features have on the classification of a verb into one of four types of present perfect. The corpus includes examples of lexical verbs in the form of the present perfect that belong to four situation types given by Vendler and defined by different combinations of features including telicity and duration, (...)

  3. "pero", "sin Embargo" Y "no Obstante" Como Conectores Discursivos.Sanja Maricic & Milica Duric - 2011 - Facta Universitatis 9 (2):89-98.
    Este artículo representa un intento del análisis gramatical y pragmático de los conectores adversativos empleados con mayor frecuencia: pero, sin embargo y no obstante basándose en la idea del significado restrictivo que expresan en le lengua española. En cuanto al análisis gramatical, se investigará la distinta forma semántica a la que estos conectores pertenecen. La mayoría de los conectores discursivos son adverbios o locuciones adverbiales pero hay entre ellos conjunciones , preposiciones… El objetivo del análisis pragmático será el hecho que (...)

  4. Lost Present: Becoming As Being.Cvetanka Perovic - 2011 - Facta Universitatis 9 (2):77-88.
    In this article we will discuss a particular case of "becoming" and how this human condition, under certain historical conditions, takes over the "being." As a narrative and metaphorical context, I will use sericulture , the topographical language of the Pannonia plains, and the historical wanderings of Serbs in the morning of the creation of nations. As a personal, emotional context, I will use my memories from Banat, a region in the northern Serbian province of Vojvodina.

  5. On Communicative Intention And Saying/implicating Distinction.Ivana Stojanovic-Prelevic - 2011 - Facta Universitatis 9 (2):107-114.
    Theory of communication describes communication as speech acts which produce communicative intentions. Grice thinks that it is important for successful communication that the hearer recognizes the speaker's communicative intention. For Relevance Theorists, intention determines truth conditions of utterance content. Meaning determination is an inference process which aims at the articulation of the speaker's intention. It is not just the communicative intention phenomenon which determines meaning; implicatures and explicatures do so, too. Grice distinguishes between the content of "What is said" and (...)

  6. The Asymmetry In Bilingual Lexical Processing Of Form Similar Words.Marija Vucinic - 2011 - Facta Universitatis 9 (2):115-124.
    The main focus of this paper is to determine whether bilinguals selectively activate lexical representations in the target language, that is the language they are currently using, or they nonselectively access lexical representations in both languages, as well as to point out the factors influencing processing asymmetry. In the first part of the paper the organization of bilingual mental lexicon is discussed, while the other part of the paper is focused on the analysis and comparison of several experiments addressing the (...)

  8. Michel Foucault's Interpretation Of Las Meninas . Or, Pure Representation As The Tautologous Structure Of The Sign.Zdravka Gugleta - 2011 - Facta Universitatis 9 (1):1-12.
    The article looks at Velázquez's Las Meninas through the prism of phenomenology and poststructuralism. It takes as its starting point Foucault's assertion that the painting is quintessentially an example of pure representation characteristic of the Classical age, as Foucault defines it. The article strives to show pure representation as a self-posited structural organization resembling nothing but itself, and consequently interprets Las Meninas painting as a philosophical metaphor of the functioning of tautologous signification. This necessarily leads to the radicalisation of Foucault's (...)

  9. Topic-Prominence And Coordinate Converbal Structures In Wutun.Marja Kaurila - 2011 - Facta Universitatis 9 (1):13-40.
    In this article, I will discuss topic-prominence, verb serialization and converbal constructions in the Wutun language. I will show that the basic sentence structure together with the case system is best analyzed in the light of the inheritance that Wutun has as a topic-prominent Sinitic language related to Chinese. In complex sentences, the verbs and the arguments are concatenated into complex structures that take the form of converbal constructions, showing a strong Tibetan influence. I will show that, irrespective of the (...)

  10. The Inheritance Of Naturalism In James Baldwin's Short Fiction.Mirjana Knezevic - 2011 - Facta Universitatis 9 (1):41-46.
    The paper analyzes James Baldwin's short fiction in relation to the literary movement of naturalism. Its aim is to identify the elements of naturalistic poetics in Baldwin's short stories illustrating them with appropriate examples, as well as to determine the extent to which they influence and color the tone of Baldwin's fiction. Since naturalism has many different aspects, mainly depending on the period and the region of its development , the essay discusses only the viewpoints which can be applied to (...)

  11. Disproving The Apparent Contradiction That Exists In Horace's View On War.Zarko Perovic - 2011 - Facta Universitatis 9 (1):53-58.
    Throughout his poetry, Horace provides two seemingly different positions on war. Some poems show the beauty and glory of war. Others show its gruesome side that tore Rome apart. This paper intends to show that these two seemingly contradictory perspectives could still nevertheless be compatible. In the analysis, the author argues that Horace has a consistent position towards war, at least within the scope of Odes 3.2 and 2.1. While two poems do not do a lot, given how divergent they (...)

  12. Traumatizing Memories And Memorizing Trauma – Hamlet And The Macbeths.Natasa Sofranac - 2011 - Facta Universitatis 9 (1):47-52.
    This paper considers how trauma led Shakespeare's characters to madness. Some memories are violently impressed upon them, some they are desperately trying to hold, while others keep re-emerging relentlessly. Hamlet is pressurized by the Ghost not to forget about the revenge and agonized by all the issues that concern that cause. The most compelling memory, of course, is what the Ghost said about the murder - Hamlet's prophetic soul remembered it from the inside. Ophelia goes mad with the memory of (...)
