REGISTER MOTIVATION OF LEXICAL UNITS (REMARKS ON THE RELATION AMONG LEXIS, REGISTER AND SOCIOLECT) (Registrova motivacia lexikalnych jednotiek (o vztahu medzi pojmami lexikalna zasoba, register, sociolekt))
Languages of publication
Register motivation (RM) represents one of 17 types of lexical motivation. The term register motivation refers to the term ('communication') register which is defined as situationally conditioned language behaviour of people connected by their common activity (D. Slancova). Register lexical units are thus situationally conditioned (such as child lexis, sport lexis etc.). Moreover, the relation among lexis, register and sociolect is analyzed. Finally, the relation of RM with other types of motivation (e.g. paradigmatic, word-formation, phraseological, syntactic and interlingual motivation) is outlined.
