Philologia Estonica Tallinnensis I (2016) (in Estonian and in English)
Linguistic, Social and Cognitive Aspects of Language and Multilingualism
Editor-in-Chief: Reili Argus
Editor: Anna Verschik

7,90 €


This year's topic of Philologia Estonica Tallinnensis, a collection by international authors, is "Linguistic, social and cognitive aspects of language contact and multilingualism".

No language exists in isolation without contacts with other languages; whether it is a peripheral fact for the researcher, or, on the contrary, the main object of study, is another matter. Most articles included in this volume are focused on language contacts having Estonian language as one of the parties.

The article by Lea Meriläinen, Helka Riionheimo, Päivi Kuusi and Hanna Lantto provides an overview of the theories of loan translations. Jim Hlavac approaches loan translations in Macedonian-English bilingual speech from the angle of contact linguistics. Virve Vihman's and Jim Hlavac's articles test theoretical models known in contact linguistics and state that in the process of language contacts, innovations which do not follow the grammar of either language are born. Anette Ross covers the dialect of the Roma living in Estonia in the context of other Roma language forms. Kristiina Praakli's article which analyses the social group of Estonians living in Finland from the viewpoint of pragmatics, and Helin Kase's study on the impact of English in Estonian fashion blogs are centered on multilingual virtual communication. Elīna Joenurma examines Estonian-Latvian bilingual speech, following the code-copying model, and focuses on the impact in both directions. Daria Bahtina-Jantsikene and Ad Backus treat Estonian-Russian receptive bilingualism, using experimental methodology.
