This article is dedicated to the study of one of the historically and more slowly folded boards of modern lexicon and terminology of architecture, which plays a special role in the life of society, both ancient and modern. The architectural term system is also investigated, namely: the processes of deformation, transformation and the specifics of functioning in the language of poetic texts, i.e. outside the scope of the scientific context. Architectural lexicon is an independent segment in the naive scientific picture of people, speakers of the language, and therefore it is of interest to both linguists and non-specialists in the philological sphere.

The article is devoted to the role of bilingualism in language relations. The problems of bilingualism and diglossia are of particular importance in modern linguistics. This process is a special form of interlingual communication. The history of bilingualism goes back to earlier times than language policy. The history of bilingualism cannot be traced back to the pre-state period. Language policy is also crucial for the development of bilingualism. This fact is connected with the establishment of the state. Bilingualism came after the establishment of the state and a single language. The language of only one of the tribes received official status, and the remaining tribes were forced to learn the dominant language. Other high-ranking tribes became bilingual by learning the language of the ruling tribe.

This article contains bilingualism and its importance in human life, as well as the benefits of bilingualism for children, skills and recommendations for identifying their ability to be bilingual, or to develop their language skills. Thus, children have the ability to accept external stimuli, creating them to form their own thoughts in order to recognize similar sounds which together form words and phrases that allow them to easily express thoughts and feelings over the years.

In the recent years, scholars and critics have become increasingly interested in the view that art is a means to escape from the existent reality and the difficulties of modern civilization. Accordingly, the literary work becomes emblematic of a voyage of spiritual discovery and the text turns into a virtual journey beyond the normal everyday world. Many writers emphasized in their works the need to be emancipated from the restrictions of modern life and underlined the idea that flight, with its different dimensions, is the ultimate way to avoid the complexities of contemporary life and circumvent the social standards and the political regulations. In the postmodern political thought, there is a similar tendency that valorizes the struggle for the liberation of the individual from all forms of repression and domination exerted by sociopolitical forces. Gilles Deleuze and Flix Guattari, for instance, criticize the constraints and rules that power authorities use to control the individual and call instead for freeing humans from the authoritarian policies of the social and political institutions.

This article aims at displaying the way how to map the meaning of Balinese verbs related to water. The data are oral and written forms collected by observation, interview, and taking-note. The oral language was collected from the key-informant in three villages within two regencies in Bali, namely Klungkung and Buleleng. The written data was observed from the 4 novels using the modern Balinese language. The collected data was furthermore analyzed by Metalanguage approach which manages to map all the meaning in the form of language description. Metalanguage approach based upon entity, process, instrument, and result is able to detect the subtle meaning difference among the verbs having a similar semantic field. From the scale of time-stability, the result shows that the mapping of action verbs: anyud, ngelangi, mandus, silem, mambuh imply the time reference change rapidly. The mapping of process verbs: aad, tiis, éncéh and beku carry the time reference is less stable. The mapping of state verbs: bedak, belus and tuduh is considered to imply the time reference is very stable.

Service offers from online platforms in Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK since the COVID-19-related lockdowns in March 2020 are analyzed and related to classical pragmatic nomenclatures. As a result, COVID-19-related lexemes are used particularly in Spain, hardly in the Netherlands, and to a medium degree in Germany, France, Italy and the UK. Often, such phrases are expressive/phatic, occasionally with an appeal to pity, just to promote positive connotations, not adding anything on the nature of the service. COVID-related lexemes are used, albeit rarely, to say that there is something positive in the crisis situation. More frequently, these lexemes are employed, in Spain, Germany and Italy, to explain the motivation for the service offer. In all countries, the lexemes are (semantically superfluously?) used to say that the service offered is free from danger (sometimes being pseudo-assertive). In Spain, covid-lexemes are very typically used to show that the service supplier is free from danger (even in headlines and first sentences), in various kinds of wordings, which mostly do not support the pretended message from a strict medical point of view: beyond classical terminology, such cases could be termed jargon-related conventional pseudo-implications.

This study aimed at finding out the figures of speech used by the government in the political language variation and the purposes to which they serve. On the basis of the data analysis, it was found that there are sixteen types of figures of speech contained in the political language variation, for example, euphemism, repetition, parallelism, personification, parable, anticlimax, sarcasm, trope, hyperbole, pleonasm, climax, antithesis, synecdoche, anaphor, allusion, and metonymy. The purposes of their uses are to vary sentences, to show respect, to express something in a polite manner, and to give an emphasis or stress meanings. The suggestion made in relation to the uses of the figures of speech in political language variation is for the authority (government) to use words or phrases that are simple to make it easy for the people to understand.

As a content producer and presenter of the radio show program, "The Wings of Culture", broadcasted live every Friday on Radio Ribat Fm, Monastir, I have faced different challenges. This paper draws on my personal experience to examine the various challenges I have so far met while presenting the program. My presentation tackles in its first part how the radio host should inform, instruct, and entertain simultaneously the audience especially that the program targets British and American literature and civilisation. The second important challenge to address is how to use voice, word choice, and pitch in order to enact an effective public performance, and accordingly help the audience create the required mental picture specifically in the condition of the absence of a visual image. The third part, however, is devoted to talk about how to manage time, work under pressure, and have quick thinking particularly when engaging in conversation with a guest.

The paper was intended to explore the correlation between emotion and feeling. It has involved two phenomena referring to health. Positive emotions experienced by humans are not born spontaneously. Various good and pleasant things make us experience positive emotions. Those feelings make us enjoy life's moments. As reported by Psychology Today, feeling positive emotions makes us healthier physically and mentally. Feeling it with others will also foster trust and compassion. Positive emotions will also keep people from stress. happy feelings are the emotions most often talked about and known. However, there are a variety of other positive emotions that are nuances of feeling happy. In 2009, psychologist Barbara Frederickson in her book Positivity identified 10 other positive emotions that are universally felt by humans in addition to feeling happy.
