Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
The analyzed vocabulary material originates from the works of Stefan Zeromski. The violet field comprises therein the colors named: 'violet', 'of the violet', 'lilac' - which are used in different grammatical forms of type and numbers. There are no derivative forms of adverbs and verbs and there is no the 'lila' lexeme. The author considers the vocabulary of this thematic field in its textual usages and context functions - as the result of Zeromski's message - in order to show, on the one hand, how the writer looks at the real world and, on the other hand, the writer's creations of the presented world. On the basis of the fragment of expanded colors appearing in Zeromski's works, the author examines the degree of the writer's artistic sensitivity and his creative opportunities in the use of colors - of the chosen field of colors. The author also examines relations between linguistic and physical indicators of colors, which were fixed in a given national language (including, inter alia, prototypes of colors), and simultaneously were reflected in the collection of texts of this writer. The above composes the background of Zeromski's masterly abilities in the paintbrush creation of pictures with the help of linguistic and stylistic means.
