4. Research objectives (in 1-2 sentences)

To study intercultural relationships embodied in translations, similar trends and motifs in two or several literatures.

5. Description and results of research (in detail, max. 1500 characters)

My primary field is comaparative stylistics and the stylistics of translation  revealed in the parallel study of Hungarian and English literary works belonging to the same stylistic trend: art nouveau and aestheticism at the turn of the 19th 20th literature; and the comparative study of style of pieces of Hungarian literature translated into English and pieces of English literature translated into Hungarian.  I also dealt with the reconstruction of translation theories based on the theoretical works of some of the most prolific and successful Hungarian translators (Arany János, Szász Károly, Babits Mihály, Németh László). My analysis include translations of English classics from Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe up to some of the pieces of modern Hungarian literature ( Krúdy Gyula, Szabó Magda) and postmodern literature (Parti Nagy Lajos, Tibor Fischer). In the method of the analysis applied I integrate the cognitive approach (cognitive stylistics) and pragmatics, considering translations important artefacts of intercultural communication. Apart from translations, other forms of English-Hungarian cultural contacts were also in my professional interest: such as the intermediary cultural space created by permanent and temporary movements of  immigration, peregrination etc.

The language pedagogy and the creation of new teaching material is  a corollary  outcome of my professional interest.  

 The results of my research were published in three individual volumes  and some more than 60 publications and numerous conference talks.

 Absurdism in the Hungarian literature. In this research I am re-reading novels of the late sixties - early seventies for trying to interpret the models of the absurd literature.

A discourse about the relationship between the person and the political power, the dictatorship, and a discourse that presents the antecedents and the first initiatives of the phenomenon called ‘prose turning’ in the Hungarian literature. I have published two long parts and some short parts from this research until now, and in the next year I will published a book in this case.

5. Description and results of research (in detail, max. 1500 characters)

The examination of neologisms. All living languages change, and in the vocabulary of every language a bidirectional process occurs. On the one hand words appear (neologism), on the other hand, words disappear (archaism). Nowadays the tendency of an ever-growing number of neologisms characterize languages. Neologisms can be classified according to the following aspects: their purpose, their method of formation, their frequency in language, according to the form of communication, to their conceptual content, to their intentionality and, according to what part of speech they belong to. In terms of origin the words can be divided into two main categories: internally generated words (including word creation and word formation) and words of foreign origin.

3. Research area and keywords of research

The effect of the stepping horse's movement on the rider’s phoneme production. Our hypothesis is that the muscle-relaxing effect exercised on the person sitting on a walking horse also affects the muscle groups of organs participating in speech production, and its results can also be detected on oscillographs.

4. Research objectives (in 1-2 sentences)

 An empirical verification of the claim that sitting on horseback regulates muscle tonality.

5. Description and results of research (in detail, max. 1500 characters)

 We attempt to empirically verify the claim, often found in relevant literature, that sitting on horseback regulates muscle tonality, since the human central nervous system has the innate capacity to accommodate to the harmonic and rhythmic movement of the walking horse.The results of the research may contribute to the planning of a horse-assisted therapy for people with disorders of the fluency of speech production, and may also serve as evidence for the acceptance of the relevance of horse therapy as a complex sensory-motor training.

3. Research area and keywords of research

1930s British fiction; modernism; remembering; trauma; nostalgia; melancholia.

4. Research objectives (in 1-2 sentences)

My main concern is how different forms of modernist remembering are structured in the post- (or secondary) modernist period of the thirties. More generally, the examination of the modernist/secondary modernist generational shift in British fiction.

5. Description and results of research (in detail, max. 1500 characters)

 1. Certain English novels of the 1930s show a marked shift as compared to the strategies of remembering of the 1920s “high modernism,” inasmuch as they call into question the latter’s demands for totalisation concerning memory. 2. The result of the pathological work of memory in the examined novels of the decade is that the self-enclosed, aesthetically-motivated presence, aiming at totality and depth is rendered impossible, since it is highly threatened either by the intrusion of the past (trauma), or the deflation of the present (melancholia), or the futile longing for the past (nostalgia). 3. These texts of the 1930s, examined from the point of view of strategies of remembering, may also serve as points of orientation in the comparison of classic and late-modernist novels.
