Collective monologue and its deictic aspects in the private and religious communication
Languages of publication
The paper focuses on the texts from the profane (private) and the sacral (religious) sphere, which are realized through the asymmetric form of the so-called collective monologue. These are ordinary spontaneous dialogues (the preferred term is collective monologized dialogue) and religious testimonies (the preferred term is collective monologue). First of all, the theoretical aspects of the phenomenon are presented. The attention is drawn also to its realization, as well as to similarities and differences in both types of the texts. The third part of the study deals with the functioning of the various nominal and verbal means of expression of the personal deixis that occurred in both texts examined. We propose to establish the category of collective expedient because there is the tendency towards shifting from the second person singular to the third person singular. This tendency is interpreted as a significant aspect of a collective monologue, especially in the texts on marriage testimonies, with the attribute of the official communication, through the narrative and expository style and the necessity or the need to thematise the intimate aspects of the ordinary married life in the official communication context and the public media space.
