Człowiek i świat w języku subkultur

  1. Ewa Kołodziejek


The man and the world in the language of subcultures

The research focuses on selected contemporary youth subcultures. Five respective chapters present the linguistic and cultural picture of criminal, military, football-fan, hip-hop, and student communities. The selection of these particular communities was triggered by the belief in their permanent and vital character and the infl uence they exert on the contemporary reality. The ethnolinguistic description of the subcultures is the linguistic way of apprehending the world through conceptualization, time, space, metaphors, and language games. The applied methodology is based on the assumption that language, being the major constituent of culture, exhibits the values and attitudes acknowledged by and established in a given community.
