    Severed Language Contacts: Two Examples from the History of English
    (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego, 2019) Szymański, Leszek
    The phenomenon of language contact is generally viewed as establishing or maintaining relationship by speakers of different languages. As far as the English language is concerned, especially its contemporary status, it is its global reach and influence that is discussed, as well as the influence it exerts on other languages. The present text deals with a reverse phenomenon, that is the cessation of contact, which results in a change of the linguistic situation. This is exemplified with the 16th-century English Reformation, to be more precise: the establishment of the Anglican Church, and the independence of the United States in the 18th century. With these two events, the author attempts to present how the breaking of contact influenced the further development of the linguistic situation in the external history of the English language.

    The Translation of Culture-bound Elements from Arabic into English in Ibn Khaldun’s Masterpiece: Domestication and Foreignization Approach
    (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego, 2019) Ou-Hssata, Hassan; Tounsi, Abdeljalil
    This study is a descriptive and interdisciplinary work whose main aim is to explore the translation strategies that translators use in translating cultural-bound elements (CBEs) from Arabic into English. Being strongly and deeply rooted in their culture, CBEs, in many cases, do not have equivalents in target languages and cultures. Thus, this constitutes one of the most difficult problems that translators meet in the process of rendition. The corpus of the study is picked from the well-known Arabic sociological ouevre “The Muqaddimah”, written by the Ibn Khaldun and translated by Translated by Franz Rosenthal. The study dwells on the methods, approaches, procedures and strategies that translators, in general, and the translator of “The Muqaddimah”, in particular, makes use of in dealing with these CBEs. Within the same line of thought, the study differentiates global from local strategies and introduces Venuti‘s concepts of domesticating and foreignizing translation strategies, which he mentioned in his masterpiece “The Translator’s Invisibility”, a book that calls to raise awareness of translation and acknowledgement to the translators. Foreignization, the study proves, is widely used in the translation of CBEs in the selected text because it maintains the identity of the source text, supports the target reader with cultural information of the source text and enhances cultural understanding among nations and cultures.

    Voice Typology: A Case of Polish Adjectival Passive Participles Related to Object Experiencer Verbs in “Roz-“
    (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego, 2019) Malicka-Kleparska, Anna
    Passive participles constitute an interesting body of data from the morpho-syntactic point of view as they combine adjectival and verbal properties, and consequently have to be endowed with rich morpho-syntactic structures. In this text we research the system of passive participles in Polish, clearly delimiting their verbal and adjectival properties. Then we concentrate on resultative states as a category with most puzzling mixed characteristics. Focusing on the resultatives derived from Object Experiencer Verbs, we argue for Intransitive Voice Projection in their structure. Some morpho-syntactic problems presented by these participles are solved when we consider a possibility that they code event kinds, rather than event tokens. Finally, the morpho-syntax of participles is juxtaposed with that of unaccusatives. The results support the kind of voice typology in which verbal structures may contain the intransitive voice projection, or lack voice altogether.

    Ambient and Multilayered Sound Design of Chaos and Paranoia in “Southland Tales” (2006)
    (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego, 2019) Kniaź, Lidia
    The article elaborates on sound design in American science-fiction film “Southland Tales” (2006) directed by Richard Kelly. Southland Tales‘ soundtrack may be considered inventive as it influences the tone of the film to a large extent and, thus, functions as a narrative device. I argue that it employs multilayered and ambient sounds so as to express the chaotic and complex atmosphere of the post-Bush American society. The analysis focuses on the characteristics of sound design in Southland Tales, namely the use of ambient music and multiplicity of sound layers. Next, it demonstrates in what ways the sound design in Southland Tales allows for interpreting the film as a satire. Moreover, the essay draws critical attention to the voiceover as a device which contributes to the emotionless and paranoid atmosphere of the film which would not be so emphasized if it were not for the sound.

    Folk Etymology: Escape from the Unknown, the Obscure and Nothing More?
    (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego, 2019) Kleparski, Grzegorz A.
    The mechanism of folk-etymology has received considerable attention from both laymen and those scholars that are busy analyzing natural languages, and although much has been said about the issue of determining the scope of the phenomena the mechanism encompasses, and the way the instances of its operation can be classified, many questions remain unanswered. In linguistic tradition, folk etymologizing is usually viewed as being motivated by the natural human wish to escape from what is illogical and obscure, and so it is viewed by, for example, Rundblad and Kronenfeld (2000). Yet, we are convinced that one may point to other motivating forces operative here, the forces that lie within the scope of broadly-understood ideology and provincialism-shunning aesthetics.
