Methodological and Technical Expertise

Group leader: Dr. Philol. Sci., Prof. Oksana Nika

Our group is focused on developing the theoretical provisions and methods of applying new scientific approaches for understanding the topical issues of the historical and cultural heritage of Ukrainians and Belarussians in the ÕV²–ÕV²² c.

The implementation of the project will allow: a) to develop an interdisciplinary approach to the study of historical and linguistic phenomena and written memos to discuss the topical problems of the historical and cultural heritage of Ukrainians and Belarusians in the ÕV²–ÕV²² c.; b) to develop the directions of historical discourse, historical cognitive linguistics, in particular linguistic poetics; c) to deepen the theory of the history of the Ukrainian literary language, the theory of linguistic contacts, linguistic source studies and paleography, which synthesizes the study of the history of writing, the evolution of graphic forms of letters, the procedures for determining the time and place of writing a memorial, as well as familiarization with subjects related to creation of ancient monuments (materials and tools for writing, forms of book fairs, filigree); d) to highlight the genre development of the “Ruthenian language”, the uniqueness of the book and manuscript heritage preserved till now, in the ÕV²–ÕV²² c.; e) to demonstrate the development of the expressive means of the literary language, conditioned by Baroque aesthetics of conseptism, to compile a dictionary of baroque means.
