XIX-wieczne akty notarialne jako źródła do badań genologicznych
19th century notarial contracts as sources for genological research
Languages of publication
Notarial contracts are texts containing rich and diverse material, which can be used to describe and interpret many legal, linguistic and genre phenomena. At the beginning of the 19th century various genre phenomena are visible, they are related to the number of contracts concluded and the appearance of new types that are relatively rapidly evolving. The genre functions both in language and beyond, as a dynamic component of human activity, following a variety of conventions that make it a communicative value, also social and cultural, and in a narrower approach: formative and stylistic. Viewed from these different perspectives, it is worth to look at the Łuków contracts from the 19th century, because it can be expected that the resources and realization of texts will be special in the context of their genre. Genological creativity observed in the analysed sources is evidently created by the category of intentionality. The category of intention allows us to see in a new light the conceptualization of particular legal genres as well as the rules for the creation and functioning of their pattern, as we deal with uniform genres in the sense of model potency, and in the evolutionary aspect, marked in the texts by different means of nomination of the same contracts, a new text quality is created.
