Style and interaction. The interactional stylistic analysis of conversations


Embedded in a cognitive-functional theoretical and methodological framework, this study aims to investigate the relations between the interactional characteristics of conversations and the sociocultural factors of style. The study starts from the conversational features of spoken language interactions, which are closely related to the sociocultural components of style. The analyses focus on the features of sequential organization (structure of turn, adjacency pairs) and on turn taking strategies (self-selection) and shows how these are related to the sociocultural features of style. The study also contains interactional stylistic exercises which help applying the content of this paper for educational purposes.

New punctuation marks in digital and handwritten texts


The present study opens with introducing the relation types between image and text. This leads to the introduction of the relation between text and emoticon, a particular icon (image type) which used to be related to digital communication. According to literature, there are three types of the relation between text and image: 1. Images are more dominant over texts; 2. Images on their own are ambiguous; 3. Images and texts are mutually important. Emoticons belong to the third category. These signs built up of punctuation marks and graphic signs representing emotions occur not only in formal digital literacy but also in handwritten texts.

Monitoring learning in the case of cooperative team work


This study investigates teacher instructions within the field of classroom communication in order to increase the efficiency of monitoring learning in the case of cooperative teamwork. Since  there are less disciplinary issues in better-organized classes, the task orientation of students enhances and their learning performance increases too. The case study follows how team work develops throughout four lessons. By determining the proportion of work forms, the study proves the hypothesis known from literature that the increase in the use of cooperative techniques increases the proportion of student-centered communication. By analyzing the instructions that are realized during team work, the study also shows which knowledge and skill elements of communicative competence are necessary for teaching an efficient cooperative class. Finally, it gives suggestions on developing learning monitoring skills.

Semantic, dialectological and contactological connections in the Hungarian secondary school curriculum in Slovakia
This paper deals with the possibilities of connecting semantics, dialectology and contactology syllabuses in Hungarian first language teaching in secondary schools in Slovakia. Let me point out the importance of analyzing semantics, dialectology and contactology syllabuses in the secondary schoolgrammar books as well. These three disciplines seem to be far from each other at first, but I think the connection between the three of them is interesting. In terms of social linguistics meaning is influenced by the knowledge of different dialects. Itreally important where and how people socialize and meanwhile which dialects they use. My aim is to present a complex worksheet based on the students knowledge of their native language.
