    “I Would Kill the Director and Teachers in the School” Cyberbullying of Hunters in Poland.Aleksandra Matulewska & Dariusz J. Gwiazdowicz - 2020 - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique 34 (4):985-1010.
    The aim of the paper is to focus on cyberbullying :33–42, 2012) affecting the community of hunters in Poland. The investigation reveals that linguistic aggression pervades more and more spheres of our lives and the Internet, which gives anonymity and physical distance, is the main forum of cyberbullying. The researchers investigate the material gathered from websites such as “Ludzie przeciw myśliwym” [Humans against hunters], hunting-related blogs and Facebook sites devoted to hunting and related to persons who are known to be (...)

    Legal Languages – A Diachronic Perspective.Aleksandra Matulewska - 2018 - Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric 53 (1):195-212.
    The aim of the article is to discuss the legal language transformations from a diachronic perspective taking into account the following factors: spatial and temporal, linguistic norm changes, political, social, and globalization as well as EU-induced. Spatial and temporal factors include legal relations influenced by climate and the cycles of nature. Linguistic factors include spelling reforms and grammatical changes each language undergoes, for example, as a result of usage. As far as the law is concerned, normative changes can be observed (...)

    The current pandemic period has triggered a series of changes in society, at both individual and collective behavioral levels. These changes were perceived as either positive or negative by the impacted bodies, leading to both social change and positive interactions in a tense context. In this paper, the authors will deal with Pandemica Panotpica, subjugation infiltrating all levels of society, and the approach adopted by several countries in trying to find countermeasures to combat the virus' proliferation. Our research scope began (...)

    Cyberbullying in Polish Debate on the Białowieża National Forest.Aleksandra Matulewska, Joanna Kic-Drgas & Paula Trzaskawka - 2020 - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique 34 (4):1011-1039.
    Social media platforms have conquered almost all fields of human life; their impact as opinion creating tools is undisputable. They not only offer a place for people to exchange experiences, but are also a virtual space where people fight with words in defence of their beliefs. This second function has made social media a rich source for linguistic analysis, providing material for the most current social, political, and economic issues. The main aim of this paper is to contribute to reducing (...)

    Lethal Laws and Lethal Education: A Case Study of Soviet Genocide Against Polish Foresters and Five Decades of Infodemic.Dariusz J. Gwiazdowicz & Aleksandra Matulewska - forthcoming - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique:1-30.
    Genocide as a part of nation or ethnic group extermination process is not a well-defined concept. Its meaning is understood intuitively. When law intervenes, the issue of defining the term comes back. Nevertheless, the Polish nation has been recognized as subjected to genocide activities during the Second World War by the Nazi Germany and Soviet Union. The paper focuses on the genocide against mainly one group of Poles that is to say foresters. The martyrologic evidence proves that foresters were an (...)

    Third Space of Legal Translation: Between Protean Meanings, Legal Cultures and Communication Stratification.Aleksandra Matulewska & Anne Wagner - forthcoming - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique:1-16.
    Legal translation is a complex transfer of the text formulated in a source language into a target language which needs to take into account a wide array of factors to ensure the equality of parties to the process of interlingual communication. It is an autonomous realm of cross-cultural events within which the system-bound of legal concepts/notions deeply rooted in language, history and societal evolution of one country are transformed and integrated into the language of another, and as a result, stratified (...)

    A Case Study of the Productivity of the Prefix Cyber- in English and Greek Legal Languages.Hanna Ciszek & Aleksandra Matulewska - 2019 - Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric 58 (1):35-57.
    The aim of the paper is to investigate the impact of the Greek language on modern legal languages in the United Kingdom and United States of America. The focus is placed on terms with the prefix cyber- of Greek origin that have recently enriched the English legal languages in connection with the fact that certain new phenomena have been regulated by laws as a result of the development of new technologies. Therefore, the authors have investigated the occurrence of terms with (...)

    Should Hunting as a Cultural Heritage Be Protected?Wojciech Dajczak, Dariusz J. Gwiazdowicz, Aleksandra Matulewska & Wojciech Szafrański - 2021 - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique 34 (3):803-838.
    The paper focuses on hunting as cultural heritage from the semiotic and legal perspectives. The aim of the paper is to determine whether the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of 2003 allows recognizing the transmission and exercise of hunting skills within the Polish Hunting Association as a manifestation of intangible cultural heritage. The main research method applied in this research is the test of legal rationality encompassing five elements: the generic coherence of hunting knowledge and (...)

    In Quest of Genocide Understanding: Multiple Faces of Genocide.Aleksandra Matulewska & Dariusz J. Gwiazdowicz - forthcoming - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique:1-19.
    The paper focuses on genocide and its multidimensional emanations. First, the authors present the definition of genocide and its types as elaborated by Lemkin : physical, political, social, cultural, economic, biological, religious, and finally moral genocide. Next, ten stages of genocide by Stanton are scrutinized with some emphasis placed on the verbal issues enabling polarization and dehumanization. The authors point out that modern means of communication, ubiquitous nowadays, make it possible to dehumanize and discriminate against groups of people on an (...)

    The Multiplicity of Third Space of Communication in Law.Aleksandra Matulewska & Anne Wagner - forthcoming - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique:1-19.
    Communication in law provides a space for alternatives, a Third Space, wherein boundaries between various systems are strongly anchored to a country’s language, history and societal development. Transfers, modifications, and integrations of such systems into other target languages may result in many effects of distortions and appropriations, reformulations and renewals as well as of misinterpretations in communication. Hence, Third Space is a necessary prerequisite for negotiation, transformation and translation from culture A to culture B, since it operates as a multi-stage (...)

    A Tentative Analysis of Legal Terminology Diachronic Changes and the Problem of Communication Effectiveness in Legal Settings.Paula Trzaskawka & Aleksandra Matulewska - 2020 - Semiotica 2020 (236-237):427-451.
    The aim of the paper is to present the diachronic changes taking place in legal languages and discuss whether the translators, who for some reason use as an equivalent an obsolete term, may produce a target text which is communicatively ineffective. The research methods applied encompass: the parametric approach to the interlingual comparison of legal terminology for translation purposes, the analysis of pertinent literature on translation and translation errors, the analysis of comparable texts for the purpose of observing diachronic changes (...)

    Protection, Regulation and Identity of Cultural Heritage: From Sign-Meaning to Cultural Mediation.Anne Wagner, Aleksandra Matulewska & Cheng Le - 2021 - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique 34 (3):601-609.
    In our research project, we will elaborate Charles Sanders Peirce’s three philosophical categories, and show how these categories operate at the levels of Protection, Regulation and Identity in the process of sign-meaning and sign-making within Cultural Heritage, Law and Discourse. The process of semiosis comprises a triadic dimension between signs, their functions and interpretations, operating on four axes within our special issue: Theoretical Cultural Heritage Issue, Cultural Heritage and Postcolonialism, Intertwined Notions of Heritage and Culture, and Protection of Cultural Heritage.
