The anato­my of Pol­ish offen­sive words. A soci­olin­guis­tic explo­ration
BuchcoverSwear­ing plays an impor­tant role in every­day lan­guage. We swear in the streets, at school, uni­ver­si­ties, at work and at home, on the means of trans­port, with fam­i­ly and friends. Peo­ple have used swear words for cen­turies and they will con­tin­ue to use them. The Anato­my of Pol­ish Offen­sive Words exam­ines offen­sive and vul­gar lan­guage of young Poles in their every­day life includ­ing its forms, uses, man­i­fes­ta­tions and the ways in which peo­ple cen­sor their words and sen­tences. The book presents a nov­el view­point on people’s psy­che since we observe how soci­ety reacts to oth­er humans so as to impose taboos by cen­sor­ing Pol­ish lan­guage.
This book is the first book writ­ten in Eng­lish on Pol­ish swear­ing intend­ed for the inter­na­tion­al read­er (both lin­guists and non-lin­guists) who can ben­e­fit from it. It offers an intrigu­ing look into Pol­ish swear words, their clas­si­fi­ca­tion in terms of offen­sive­ness both from the per­spec­tive of quan­ti­ta­tive and qual­i­ta­tive research but also from the AI (Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence) view­point. Mixed meth­ods research, i.e., a ques­tion­naire-based study and a cor­pus-based study, makes the research orig­i­nal. The find­ings deep­en our under­stand­ing of swear­ing and its role in lan­guage.

Polit­i­cal Nov­el in the South Slav­ic Inter­cul­tur­al Con­text
BuchcoverThe Polit­i­cal Nov­el in the South Slav­ic Inter­cul­tur­al Con­text inves­ti­gates the prob­lem of the genre of the most elu­sive lit­er­ary genre: the polit­i­cal nov­el, and the pres­ence of “polit­i­cal” in nov­els of South Slav­ic lit­er­a­ture, pri­mar­i­ly in the inter­cul­tur­al South Slav­ic social con­text, as well as in the con­text of con­tem­po­rary his­to­ry of South­east and Cen­tral Europe. This genre in the South Slav­ic inter-lit­er­ary con­text has not yet been sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly and sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly stud­ied and pre­sent­ed, although there are crit­i­cal and sci­en­tif­ic reviews that indi­cate its pres­ence in lit­er­ary pro­duc­tion. The best nov­els from the canon­i­cal South Slav­ic authors Miroslav Krleža, Mihai­lo Lal­ic, Oskar Davi­co, Mio­drag Bula­tovic, Ivo Andric, Meša Selimovic, Borislav Pekic, Mirko Kovac, Dani­lo Kiš, and oth­ers includ­ed in this book the­ma­tize the polit­i­cal con­cepts of the twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry, so in the broad­est sense they can be con­sid­ered with­in the genre of polit­i­cal nov­el, includ­ing its sub­genre vari­ants. The polit­i­cal nov­el in South Slav­ic lit­er­a­tures (in the inter­cul­tur­al con­text) in gen­er­al is a spe­cif­ic genre of the nov­el in rela­tion to the polit­i­cal nov­el writ­ten in the West, an inter-lit­er­ary phe­nom­e­non that was a cri­tique of the Titoist regime and a lit­er­ary response to the poet­ics and pol­i­tics of social real­ism. It is con­di­tioned by spe­cif­ic his­tor­i­cal-polit­i­cal and social move­ments dur­ing the twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry. The nar­ra­tive of the polit­i­cal nov­el is a poet­ic resis­tance to ide­o­log­i­cal con­scious­ness and a dog­mat­ic view of real­i­ty.
