Sorokina V. Prose of the XXI c.: from the experience of reading
The analysis of the modern european literature concerns with the attempt to find out common features in west european and Russian prose of the beginning of the XXI c. Both literatures had many typological signs in the past, both have national peculiarities. At the same time it is evident that after postmodernistic experiment both literatures tend to classic tradition and especial interest to the image of the main personage and the narrative, construction of a plot.

Koleva Kr., Atanasova D.-D. New uses of reflexive verbs in modern Bulgarian literary language – Trend or Non-Standard
This text analyzed the usage of the frequently found neutral impersonal reflexive verb sluchi se // sluchva se (‘to happen’) and its derivates in contemporary Bulgarian language. Apart from their normal use, which is mainly explained by means of the synonymic order in which the verb is dominant, these verbs are often found with (to a certain degree) irregular uses. Their appearance is due to the influence of English language (syntagms with ‘to happen’) and is typical for the journalistic style and political discourse. The influence of this innovation in other language styles (mainly the scientific) poses the question if this phenomenon is just a linguistic fashion or marks a tendency.

Ferro M.Ch., Romoli F. Un lexicon slavo ecclesiastico-russo-italiano dei termini religiosi e filosofico-teologici. Presentazione del progetto e primi risultati, con commento degli attributi del diavolo
The paper presents the project of a trilingual (Church Slavonic – Russian – Italian) lexicon of religious and philosophical-theological words, stemming from the observation of an editorial lack.
Religious and philosophical-theological terms used in modern Russian are derived from Church Slavonic, a language that contains many loans and calques from Greek and Latin. Thatʼs why these terms can be correctly understood and translated only through the reconstruction of their origins, semantics and use. General dictionaries often fail to provide satisfactory solutions, since they do not consider the question of correspondence or lack of correspondence in concepts and contexts of reference.
Aiming at compiling a trilingual lexicon, in previous articles the authors analyzed some groups of lexemes. In particular they analyzed some words belonging to agiographical vocabulary and some attributes referred to the three persons of Christian God and to the Mother of God. In the present article they examine nouns and attributes referred to the devil.
