Semantic Domains of Deixis


The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Rijeka became the holder of yet another nationally competitive research project funded by the Croatian Science Foundation. It is a scientific project in the field of cognitive linguistics, focused on the processing of linguistic meaning. The project entitled "Semantic Domains of Deixis: Research of Fast Semantic Processes in a Language (DeicTeS)", led by Prof. Marija Brala-Vukanović, Ph.D., brings together associates and consultants from various European universities: Cambridge, York, Lund, Jena, Oslo, and Shumen. Also, within the framework of the University of Rijeka, the project is a platform for collaborating scientists from the two departments of the UNIRI Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (Department of English Language and Literature and the Department of Croatian Language and Literature) and the UNIRI Department of Informatics.

During the next four years, the project plans to carry out a series of scientific research activities (workshops and conferences), thanks to which the University of Rijeka will be the host to many esteemed guests from domestic and foreign universities. The aim of the project is to provide new insights into the field of cognitive semantics based on the comparison of linguistic items in a number of European languages, with special attention given to the contribution of the visibility of the Croatian language and its linguistic particularities by publishing the results of empirical research in renowned world linguistic journals.
