Temporale und modale Konjunktionen und ihre individuellen Verarbeitungsweisen


The paper presents a study within the scope of cognitive linguistics. The aim is to relate Langacker’s assumption about language as meaning to grammatical language items and to examine it, taking the already existing research into consideration, by analysing selected temporal and modal conjunctions. The research object in this comparative analysis are selected German conjunctions and their Polish counterparts. The study provides answers to the following questions:

  • Is meaning content activated by conjunctions in language processing?
  • Which emotions are triggered in the participants of the study?
  • How are the conceptualized meanings and emotional values that are ascribed to the conjunctions influenced by particular contexts of the utterances?

The method of intersubjective introspection makes it possible to trace the allegedly finished processing mechanisms in participants.
