Proceedings from the 2015 CALS conference

Edited By Kristina Cergol Kovacevic and Sanda Lucija Udier

This book offers a selection of sixteen papers presented at the 29th international annual conference of the Croatian Applied Linguistics Society held in 2015. The papers in this book tackle an array of applied linguistics research concerns and provide methodological solutions to many a related problem. The authors’ contributions fall into three main strands of research focus: 1) methodological issues in second language teaching and learning research, 2) experimental research in applied linguistics and 3) spoken and written corpus studies. Almost each individual paper focuses on a different methodological issue in applied linguistics research, treading the path to new related studies.

Conventionalized patterns of colour naming in Croatian

Abstract: This paper is based on the research conducted as part of the international project “Evolution of Semantic Systems” (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen). The Croatian language was one of 50 Indo-European languages included in the research. All research within the project consisted of several different types of speaker elicitation testing. Colour terms were one of the four basic areas of research. The results of the colour naming task are presented in the paper. The data was comprised of 1680 responses in total. The results of the data analysis showed some regularities in colour naming in Croatian. In this paper conventionalized lexicalization patterns of colour naming in Croatian are defined and distinguished from novel expressions. The goal of the paper is to define strategies used in colour naming.

Die kroatische Sprache war eine der 50 indoeuropäischen Sprachen, die in der Forschung einbezogen waren. Alle Untersuchungen innerhalb des Projektes bestanden aus sämtlichen verschiedenen Testtypen der Sprecher-Elizitation. Farbbezeichnungen waren einer von vier grundlegenden Forschungsbereichen. Die Ergebnisse der Farbbenennungsaufgabe werden im Beitrag vorgestellt. Die Daten beinhalten insgesamt 1680 Antworten. Die Ergebnisse der Datenanalyse deuten auf einige Regelmäßigkeiten bei der Benennung von Farben im Kroatischen hin. In diesem Beitrag werden konventionalisierte Lexikalisierungsmuster der Farbbenennung im Kroatischen definiert und von neuen...
