The papers reflect on «visions» and «revisions» of selected theoretical and applied linguistic issues. Methodologically, they all reflect and contribute to the polarization between form- and substance-oriented approaches that are typically identified with, respectively, structural and functional paradigms. The diversity of standpoints exemplified and the divergence of operational tools employed make the volume a representative spectrum of the on-going developments in how language is conceptualized and analyzed as both an abstract entity and as a medium of communication, language teaching and learning included. For this reason, the readers will find as much of structural considerations as of functional reflections and practical applications.
Przemyslaw Lozowski is Associate Professor and Katarzyna Stadnik is Assistant Professor at the Department of English, Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Lublin, Poland. Both are historically-oriented semanticists, developing a panchronic approach to examing language data.
