Jazykový obraz světa a kreativní text
THE PLACE OF CREATIVE TEXTS IN THE LINGUISTIC PICTURE OF THE WORLD
Languages of publication
In this paper, it is claimed that the artistic vision of the world is not very different from the linguistic picture of the world and that creative use of language (i.e. artistic or journalistic texts, advertisements, or even colloquial texts) can contain valuable, indeed, sometimes fundamental data for a reconstruction of the conceptual system encoded in the language. Examples of texts are provided, thanks to which one can verify hypotheses constructed on the basis of systemic facts and which draw attention to an aspect of the linguistic picture of the world. When creative uses are taken into account, semantic components inconspicuous in the general variety of the language surface, and the semantic openness of linguistic expressions is revealed - this openness is correlated with the openness of human thinking about the world. Textual connotations, merely individual at face value, usually have a clear motivation because a semantically interpretable utterance must be derived from linguistic and cultural knowledge. Situations in which the text is the only justification of unconventionalized semantic components are very rare.
