ABOUT A RELATION BETWEEN TABOO AND A SAFETY CULTURE - THE INFLUENCE ON THE FEELING OF SAFETY OF AN INDIVIDUAL
Languages of publication
This study consists of two parts. The first contains a theoretical interpretation of lexeme taboo with a particular emphasis placed on the issue of etymology and varied semantics of this concept. This analysis is based on the use of dictionary definitions as well as ethnological and linguistic research. It is also significant to reveal the connection between tabooisation and security culture. The second section is an attempt of response to the question on the tabooisation of the subjects related to body and sexuality in the youth newspaper. The analytic part is intended to depict ways and reasons of this phenomenon. The combination of theoretical description and examples study is meant to illustrate the concept of safety in the context of taboo – the concept, which is nowadays defined not only as a military category, but also as a quality valued as safety culture.
