Teperik T.F., Teperik R.F. Nonverbal behavior: philological and psychological approaches
The paper deals with nonverbal behavior in a context of the modern psychology postulates on one hand and analyses depictions of nonverbal behavior from the point of view of different genres’ poetics (Shakespeare’ ‘Julius Cesar’ and Plutarch’ ‘Cesar’) on the other. Naturally, both authors unveil hero’ inner world not only by describing their nonverbal behavior, but both in the play and in the biography one of the leading motives is laughter: fear of looking ridiculous makes the hero to make an error, which leads him to the death. Not only fatal to hero external factors influence events, but his own state of mind, his own inner world. This serves to prove both authors’ attention to human psychology and their understanding of its consistent patterns and paradoxes.

Mitrovich Marich Ya. Grapheme and Pixel: The Culture of Reading in the Digital Age
It has been two decades since Umberto Eco’s first contemplations on the subject of media influence on the process of reading were poured into his “From Internet to Gutenberg” study. The text that is laid before you – “Grapheme vs Pixel – culture of reading in a digital age” is a communication attempt to Eco’s essence, in order to clarify what conditions the newness in the reading process.
The purpose of our study is to challenge the modern reader and community through polemic dialogue, starting with Eco’s framework, arguing it. Thwarting the classical, in this context, linear reading and digital reading as experienced categories, out of which the first has it’s foothold in past and present equally, as well as theoretical structure. This study underlines media influence on forming reading habits, reader-text relations, even the thoroughly altered culture of reading as a sociological and culturological phenomenon conditioned with new technological achievements, new carriers of information, new mediums.
A start from an altered philosophy of reading opens a plethora of problematic questions that are not limited neither to the reading audience, nor text, but rather dive into the departments of methodology, remote studying, linguistics and legalities, hypertext, that is – departments of new literacy and new introduction of literacy to the contemporary and future reader.
The study also points out the accountability of the academic community, the state, and society towards the subjects in question that should be in part resolved through the educational process in the form of a systematic approach of society to shape the reader’s personality, reading competence, and functional digital media literacy.

Mojsova-Chepishevska V. Macedonian Cinderellas in the Context of World Cultural
One of the most wide-spread narrative paradigms and at the same time one of the most pronounced symbols of female puberty initiation – the turning of a teenage girl into a woman – can be traced through the prism of poetics of the plot about the innocent pursued heroine which is revealed through the relationship of stepmother and stepdaughter. It is present in the world-famous fairy tales such as “Cinderella”, “Sleeping Beauty” and “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. This article investigates culturological similarities and distinctions in the images of so called Macedonian Cinderellas from fairy tales, published in folklore collection by Marko Tsepenkov and Kuzman Shapkarev.
Sergeev A. The Genre of a Novel in the Work of H. Pontoppidan
This article discusses H. Pontoppidan’s social-psychological and philosophical novel at the turn of the 20th century. It is argued that Pontoppidan’s aesthetics were similar to the beliefs of the Modern Breakthrough adherents, he shared Georg Brandes’ anticlerical views and debated grundtvigianisme in The Promised Land (1891–1895), his Lucky Per (1898–1904), like H. Ibsen’s Peer Gynt, exposed his searches for the essence of human existence.
Blinov A.V. Featuring Semantics of Modality in Gothic
This article discusses forms of imperative and optative in the translation from Greek into Gothic of The Our Father prayer. Lexically, Gothic translators of the Bible were as precise as the Greek prototype prescribed. Grammatically, they sought to adapt the categories, at some points, to the formal potential of Gothic, and, at other points, to the overall emotional modality of the text. The Greek text indicated close proximity of these modes, and, apparently, their mutual replaceability. Meanwhile, the Gothic translation of the Greek forms treats the categories of the mood differently. This permitted to create new shades of modality, as Gothic imperative and optative prompted the meaning which was absent from the Greek text. To conclude, in the general context of the Gothic translation of the prayer the difference and alternation of the modalities imposed by imperative and optative prove to be relevant both in terms of form and content.

Tereshchuk A. The Language of Russian-Speaking Immigration in Barcelona: Morphosyntactic Level
The article studies the current state of the mother tongue of 40 Russian-speaking immigrants in the province of Barcelona, in the Autonomous Community of Catalonia, Spain. This is home to 12,212 immigrants from Russia. Their speech is influenced by Spanish and Catalan. The article analyzes how strongly Spanish and Catalan influenced the Russian of the immigrants. The paper shows the principles of selection of informants for the research and presents a description of the morphosyntactic level of the Russian spoken by the first generation of immigrants from Russia in Barcelona. The article describes Spanish and Catalan syntactic structures in the Russian speech of the informants. The results of the research are compared to the descriptions of the Russian spoken by immigrant communities in other countries. The findings are contrasted to A. Urban’s results of her research entitled “Russisch-spanischer Sprachkontakt in Argentinien”.

Makarova-Tomineс I.D. A Russian Accent in Slovenian: A Speech Portrait of the Russian-speaking Slovenian
This article provides an overview and study of frequent language mistakes made by Russian-speaking Slovenians. Informants were 10 adults with a rudimentary knowledge of the language. Their discourse is of special interest for the researcher as it shows how an in-between system of two related languages grows. Research makes predominant use of contemporary Russian psycholinguists’ terminology (e.g., Zeitlin, Zalevskaya, Voyeykova).
Mirvoda T.A. Children’s Contemporary Folklore as the Object of a Psycholinguistic Experiment
The article presents the results of a psycholinguistic experiment conducted with freshmen of Moscow State University’s School of Philology on November 30, 2016, at a lecture on contemporary urban folklore. The toolkit was a selection of contemporary children’s folklore texts, and not images that are commonly used in such experiments.
Folklore material-based psycholinguistic experiments are not a novelty. This experiment, however, is conceptually different from others as, besides psycholinguistic, it pursued pedagogical and folkloristic goals. The folklore texts used in this experiment were tools and objects of research at the same time.
The results showed that 1) texts and genre forms that have been demonstrated to the participants are geographically loose; 2) some texts are more common than others; 3) each genre has an audience of a certain age; 4) folklore products, which are similar in form or content to folklore products that had been shown, are part of the younger generation’s repertoire rather than the researcher-informant’s repertoire.
Aseeva S.A. M.V. Nesterov’s Illustration of LN. Tolstoy’s Novel “Anna Karenina”: Intermedial and Philosophical-Anthropological Aspects
The article considers the portrait of Tolstoy’s novel’s heroine, made by Mikhail Nesterov, not only as a phenomenon of intermediality (in the domain of literature and fine arts interrelationship) but also as the way to express philosophical and anthropological senses of the novel connected with the image of Anna by means of illustration. The author pays special attention to Nesterov’s relationship to Tolstoy’s philosophical views.

Srbinovska S. Fiction and Fact in Slavko Janevski’s “Landfill”
The article discusses how the Macedonian writer Slavko Janevski depicts reality in his last novel “Landfill”. An attempt is made to highlight the ways in which narration works as an order-making force in the novel. Drawing on the generative theories of relation in the works of Peter Sloterdijk, Hayden White, Louis Mink and Michel de Certeau, the article shows how the enterprise of narrative order in Janevski’s novel works to pinpoint the historical-political chaos in the Balkans at the turn of the 21st century, and it offers a distinctly anti-utopian poetics as a method for studying the macrosocial transformations of Macedonia as a culture-in-transit. The article also ruminates over the language of postmodern Macedonian novel.

Pospíšil I. Valentin Rasputin through the Eyes of the Czechs (Portrait and Around: A Few Thoughts)
Despite the fact that the reception by the Czech of Russian literature in general and Soviet literature in particular have been quite uneasy, the Czech literary reception tradition is largely in accord with the spirit of Russian village prose, notwithstanding some deep-rooted differences in the poetological origins of the literatures in question. The article discusses theoretical and practical issues of translating V. Rasputin’s prose into Czech and critical responses to the translations, it displays Valentin Rasputin’s views and their reception by the Czech and argues that with their rich reception traditions in terms of village prose the Czech have every chance to better grasp the essence of Rasputin’s prose.
