  • K. NIKOŁAJCZUK: Starość nie radość? Polish phraseology denoting old age from the angle of the field theory
    The article is devoted to the analysis of phraseological units expressing old age in human life. The location of the studied idioms within the relevant semantic field is done taking into account three aspects of phraseological meaning (significative, denotative and connotative). A two-part kernel (the central part and the part more distant from the kernel: 41% of studied idioms) and a seven part periphery (59% of studied idioms) have been allocated due to the criteria adopted by us in the field human old age. Special attention is paid to denotative features (positive or negative) of these temporal idioms. Corpusbased research has shown that the positive denotative features are dominant in the meaning of kernel idioms expressing human old age.
  • J. SAHATA: Dynamic processes in a modern Polish phraseology with an animalistic component
    In the given research article we considered stable usual changes in Polish phraseology with an animalistic component. We analyzed the innovational processes of a quantitative nature: loss of recessive phraseological units and an increase in neo-phraseological units as well as those of a qualitative nature (evolution of innovative variants of the traditional phraseological units or derivatives of phraseological units, neo-semantization of phraseological units and the occurrence of innovational schemes of lexico-semantic collocations of phraseological units).

    The subject of my article is the analysis of 64 unofficial, colloquial, one-part names of female religious congregations and their members in Poland.
