Б) ПЛАН ЛЕКСИЧЕСКОГО АНАЛИЗА ТЕКСТА
I. ETYMOLOGY
1. Give examples of native words of the common Indo-European word-stock (cognates in Latin,
Greek, German, Russian) and the common Germanic word-stock (cognates in Gothic, German, etc.),
characterize their peculiarities.
2. Give examples of borrowings, etymological hybrids and doublets. Characterize them according
to their origin (source) and degree of assimilation. Find international words.
3. Try to find archaisms, historisms or neologisms. Characterize them according to the way of
formation.
II. MORPHOLOGICAL STRUCTURE OF WORDS
1. Analyze several words on three levels:
a) on the morphemic level – number of morphemes, their types, free and bound morphemes, root
words, derived and compound words;
b) on the derivational level – types of stems, simplified stems, roots equal to stems;
c) on the Immediate Constituents level, revealing the morphological motivation of words.
III. WORD BUILDING
9
1. Give examples of words formed through affixation, characterize prefixes and suffixes according
to their origin, meaning, type (convertive or non-convertive), productivity, frequency, stylistic
reference, emotive charge, valency, part-of-speech meaning.
2. Give examples of compound words, characterize them according to the type of composition,
idiomaticity, the way of joining components.
3. Find examples of words formed through conversion, characterize conversion pairs according to
the main points of difference and similarity between the members of a pair; semantic relationship
between them; direction of derivation.
4. Characterize examples of other ways of word-building; shortening, blending, back-formation,
onomatopoeia, distinctive stress and sound interchange.
IV. SEMASIOLOGY
1. Find several (5-6) lexical units with different types and degrees of motivation.
2. Point out instances of semantic change (widening, narrowing, degradation, amelioration of
meaning). Characterize different cases of semantic transfer (metaphor, metonymy, etc.).
3. Point out polysemantic words, characterize their lexico-semantic variants. Supply some words
in the text with homonyms, speak on their source, type, degree.
4. Define the type and source of synonyms to some words in the text.
5. Find homonyms to several words from the text, define their source and types.
В) ПРИМЕРНЫЙ ТЕКСТ ДЛЯ ЛЕКСИЧЕСКОГО АНАЛИЗА
THE LONGEST JOURNEY
Freeing migration could enrich humanity even more than freeing trade. But only if the social and
political costs are contained.
«WITH two friends I started a journey to Greece, the most horrendous of all journeys. It had all the
details of a nightmare: barefoot walking in rough roads, risking death in the dark, police dogs hunting us,
drinking water from the rain pools in the road and a rude awakening at gunpoint from the police under a
bridge. My parents were terrified and decided that it would be better to pay someone to hide me in the back
of a car."
This 16-year-old Albanian high-school drop-out, desperate to leave his impoverished country for the
nirvana of clearing tables in an Athens restaurant, might equally well have been a Mexican heading for
Texas or an Algerian youngster sneaking into France. He had the misfortune to be born on the wrong side
10
of a line that now divides the world: the line between those whose passports allow them to move and
settle reasonably freely across the richer world's borders, and those who can do so only hidden in the
back of a truck, and with forged papers.
Tearing down that divide would be one of the fastest ways to boost global economic growth. The gap
between labour's rewards in the poor world and the rich, even for something as menial as clearing tables,
dwarfs the gap between the prices of traded goods from different parts of the world. The potential gains
from liberalising migration therefore dwarf those from removing barriers to world trade. But those
gains can be made only at great political cost. Countries rarely welcome strangers into their midst.
ПРИМЕРНЫЙ АНАЛИЗ ТЕКСТА
The text under consideration/analysis is presumably a passage from the article written in Standard
English. I have not noticed any Americanisms or features pointing to other regional varieties of
English. The style is literary, though the text contains an example of a word belonging to colloquial
style: a drop-out.
I. ETYMOLOGY
From the point of view of etymology the text presents a certain interest. It abounds in borrowed
words.
There are earlier Latin borrowings such as school, line, border, bridge, Latin-French borrowings
table, fortune, there are also words borrowed by many languages which became international words:
global, migration, political, liberalise.
Among French borrowings there are completely assimilated Norman-French borrowings which are
not felt as such: e.g. rich, country, and later French borrowings that are not completely assimilated:
phonetically: e.g. police; graphically and phonetically: journey, restaurant).
The word paper deserves a particular interest. It is derived from Fr. Papier, which, in its turn,
comes from
Lat. papyrus, and the latter was borrowed from Greek (Gr. Papyrus). Thus, the
source of borrowing (the language from which the word was taken into English) is French, and the
origin of borrowing (the language to which the word may be traced) is Greek.
………………… (borrowings from other languages are analysed in the same way).
As far as native words are concerned, I can name the following examples of native words of the
common Germanic word-stock : fast, the cognate of which may be found in Gothic (G. fest), all,
having cognates in Gothic (all) and Old Norwegian (ON allr), death, old, water, world, roads and
many more.
…………………. (other groups of native words).
An instance of etymological doublets can be exemplified by the word road: there is a pair of
etymological doublets in the text: road - raid.
II. MORPHOLOGICAL STRUCTURE OF WORDS
For the morphemic analysis I have chosen the following words:
Most, nirvana – one-morphemic root words consisting of free morphemes,
Details - a two-morphemic word consisting of a root morpheme detail and a derivational
morpheme –s, used to form plural
Analysis into the immediate constituents. /See example from the lecture/
( un - gentlemanly
Comparing the word with other utterances we recognize the morpheme un- as a negative
prefix (compare unnatural, unfortunate, uncertain) and the morpheme gentlemanly. Thus at the first
cut of the analysis we obtain the bound negative morpheme un- and the free morpheme gentlemanly.
At the second cut we obtain the following immediate constituents: the noun stem gentleman- which
occurs in other utterances and the suffix -ly with the meaning “having the quality of the person
11
denoted by the stem” (compare womanly, masterly, soldierly). The third cut is an adjective stem
gentle- (a similar pattern is observed in nobleman) and -man which may be classified as a semiaffix)
III. WORD BUILDING
Now I would like to analyse the ways of world building used in the text.
The word Impoverished is an affixational derivative consisting of four bound morphemes,pover- is a derived stem, im- is a negative prefix of Romanic origin, -ish is a derivational verbforming suffix, and –ed is a functional suffix.
Another example of an affixational derivative – youngster( a root morpheme young-, and a semiaffix having a derogatory meaning –ster).
High-school is a simple compound. There seem to be no examples of derivational compounds in the
text under consideration.
There are also words formed by means of other ways of word formation:
Conversion : started – a start, rain – to rain, to clear – clear, to drop out - a drop-out, back –to
back- the back
IV. SEMASIOLOGY
Let’s move on to the level of semasiology. In the text the following examples of semantic change
may be found:
Widening (table, paper), narrowing, degradation, amelioration of meaning .
There is also a case of a semantic transfer, it can be demonstrated at the example of … (metaphor,
metonymy, etc.).
The text contasins numerous polysemantic words:
Pool, papers, gap, good etc. Let’s consider lexico-semantic variants of the word table (стол,
таблица, пища, плато, доска.)
As far as homonymy is concerned, I can give the following homonymic pairs : rain – reign; these
are homophones, according to another classification - partial lexico-grammatical homonyms since
they coincide only in some forms: compare the paradigms rain –rains- rain’s – rains’ and reignreigns- reigning- reigned).
to tear –a tear (is to be analysed in the same way),.
In the text we can find the following synonyms: Decide – be desperate to. These are stylistic
synonyms.
Gap – line – border. This is an example of ideographic synonyms.
Horrendous –terrible – horrible – awful. These are ideographic synonyms
with a synonymic
dominant awful. The synonymic pair horrendous – awful can serve as an example of stylistic
synonyms (poetic - neutral).
Also: Strangers- immigrants – foreigners – newcomers, misfortune – trouble – difficulty- misery.
