On the antonymic deployment of invariant parameters of Russian communicative kinemes

Anna A. Korosteleva, Lomonosov Moscow State University (

The study is carried out within the framework of semantic communicative analysis and is dedicated to the semantics of communicative kinesic means of the Russian language. It proves the ability of the invariant meanings of Russian communicative gestures to antonymic deployment in a statement. This trait can presumably be attributed to typological particularities of Russian language. The fact of submission of basic Russian kinemes to the algorithm of antonymic deployment of parameters discovered by M.G. Bezyaeva for verbal units, can form the foundation of a new approach to their description in dictionaries.

Key words: communicative semantics, Russian spoken dialogue, kinesic language means.

L.V. Moskovkin, Saint Petersburg state University (

E.B. Rykova, North-Western state medical University named after I.I. Mechnikov

The article deals with the pedagogical terms “training” and “teaching”. Authors analyze their use in various contexts, including Ruscorpora examples and believe that training and teaching in the minds of teachers and many methodologists are types of pedagogical influence: teaching is the formation of knowledge, and training is the formation of skills. Attempts of scientists to establish subordination relations between them are recognized as illegal. The idea that training is a joint activity of a teacher and students is criticized.

Key words: teaching, training, pedagogical influence, pedagogical terminology.
