Between Reality and Myth
GRIN Verlag, 2010 - 74 pages
Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2007 in the subject Speech Science / Linguistics, grade: 10,00, University of Bucharest, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this paper is to highlight the relation which can be established between language and stereotyping as a socio-cognitive process. With this purpose in mind, what I will try to do is to analyze the linguistic material - consisting of a corpus made up of vocabulary for nicknames, forms of address, collocations, and expressions, on the one hand, and the proverbs on the other) so as to justify the way in which the stereotypical image of some of the groups (the Rroma, the Jews, the Turks, the Greeks, and the Hungarians), which represent or have represented ethnic minorities in Romania throughout the centuries, is delineated.
