Linguistic, Linguo-stylistic and Narratological Aspects of Early Montenegrin Short Stories

by Sanja Crnogorac (Author)
Thesis 368 Pages
Series: Symbolae Slavicae, Volume 32

Summary

The book examines lingo-stylistic and narratological characteristics of Montenegrin short stories in the crucial period of 19th and early 20th century language reform. The seldom analysed works of fourteen authors from this period are approached from the orthographical, phonological, morphological, syntaxic, lexical and phraseological angles in order to provide a comprehensive overview of the interplay between the alternating linguistic standards. The principal intent is not only to accentuate the so-far neglected contribution of Montenegrin writers to South-Slavic linguistic heritage in general, but also to facilitate the understanding of the interaction between the folk dialectical base and the emerging linguistic and literary tendencies of the age.

About the author

Sanja Crnogorac received a diploma in Serbo-Croatian Language and Yugoslav literature from the University of Montenegro, followed by an MSc in Linguistics from the same university, where she also worked. She earned a PhD in Slavistics at the University of Jena.

This eBook can be cited

This edition of the eBook can be cited. To enable this we have marked the start and end of a page. In cases where a word straddles a page break, the marker is placed inside the word at exactly the same position as in the physical book. This means that occasionally a word might be bifurcated by this marker.

Acknowledgments

The present book contains the text of my doctoral thesis, defended at the Faculty of Philosophy at the University “Friedrich Schiller” in Jena at the Institute of Slavistics and Caucasus Studies, on 31st January 2018, in front of the Committee consisting of Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Thede Kahl, PD Dr. Vladislava Warditz and Prof. Dr. Stefan Strohschneider.

I am deeply thankful to my supervisor, professor Thede Kahl, for the immense support he has given me throughout my work on the doctoral thesis, as well as for his patient dedication to the themes which I dealt with in my dissertation. Without his unselfish help, it would not have been possible to complete this book.

I also owe gratitude to the publisher “Peter Lang” Publishing Group in Berlin, who helped the book see the light of day.
