Priorities of Systemic Linguistics

Lipatova T.V.


Appeal to mechanisms of communication reveals an interaction in communicative act between pronounced and written units and their mental doubles reflected in psyche. The author maintains that “the inner form of a language as a whole” (W. von Humboldt) makes a nominative content and a predicative logic process in a sentence unique. The author proceeds from the methodology of scientific research within systemology as a strict distinction of nominative and communicative content aspects, correlation of directly unobserved domains of utterances with directly observed planes of language and non-language conscience and the most crucial thing - the inner form of language as a whole could be properly treated and investigated only within systemic linguistics and philosophical systemology.

Definition of Translation and Its Objects for Training Foreigners in Russian

Bragina M.A., Bulgarova B.A., Popovich I.Y.


Translation theory has adopted to differentiate two values of the term translation: process and productive. Process as the first translation value is defined most often as a special type of speech activity. In this article translation is defined as the interconnected usage of receptive and productive types of speech activity; this is carried out for the reproductive purposes of replacing the interpreted text with equivalent text in the other language at a duplication already made or still ongoing communicative activity. The text received, as a result of such replacement, is bearing the second value of the term translation. The main criterion of the successful translation is the equivalence of the two texts. Equivalence is reached at different levels: 1) level of language signs (words); 2) statement level; 3) level (structures) of the message; 4) level of the description of a situation; 5) communication purpose level.
