A Meeting with Researcher from Spain Inés Lozano-Palacio
PetrSU students and teachers held an online conference with Inés Lozano-Palacio, PhD in English Philology of Valencia Polytechnic University (Spain). Her lecture was devoted to functional aspects of echolalia as a phenomenon of stylistic syntax.
The lecturer shared the material on the modern English language, the main features of the ironic realization of echo-repetitions in dialogical remarks, emphasizing the possible influence of the external context: social, ethno-cultural and professional.
Feedback from participants:
Anna Kuzio, a Polish researcher (the University of Zielona Gora):
“I'm very glad that I had the opportunity to attend an online meeting with Dr. Palacio. The lecture was informative, it was also put together in a very good way. I'd like to mark the extremely high level of research carried out on the basis of authentic material. The coherence and clarity of the group members' work who prepared and organized the meeting are also pleasantly surprising. Looking forward to new scientific events!”
Karina Novokshanova, a 3rd year student of the Institute of Foreign Languages:
“This meeting was one of the most interesting in my student life, it presented a solid scientific work on a very relevant and, at the same time, fascinating topic of irony (and not only) with illustrative examples from the English-language media, fiction, and films. I'm very glad that I got the opportunity to get acquainted with the study itself and talk with the lecturer on a topic slightly abstracted from science, to share my impressions of the presentation.”
The Center for Applied Linguistic Studies (Nadezhda Leushina, a lecturer of the Department of Foreign Languages for Technical and Natural Sciences) jointly with the Student Scientific Society of the Institute of Foreign Languages (Sabina Nedbailik, Associate Professor of the Department of the German and French Languages) hosted the meeting.
