5. There was a crime. But there were also the lovers. Lovers and their happy ends have been on my mind all night long. As into the sunset we sail. An unhappy inversion. It occurs to me that I have not travelled so very far after all, since I wrote my little play. Or rather, I've made a huge digression and doubled back to my starting place. It is only in this last version that my lovers end well, standing side by side on a South London pavement as I walk away. All the preceding drafts were pitiless. But now I can no longer think what purpose would be served if, say, I tried to persuade my reader, by direct or indirect means, that Robbie Turner died of septicaemia at Bray Dunes on 1 June 1940, or that Cecilia was killed in September of the same year by the bomb that destroyed Balham Underground station. That I never saw them in that year. That my walk across London ended at the church on Clapham Common, and that a cowardly Briony limped back to the hospital, unable to confront her recently bereaved sister. That the letters the lovers wrote are in the archives of the War Museum. How could that constitute an ending? What sense or hope or satisfaction could a reader draw from such an account? Who would want to believe that they never met again, never fulfilled their love? Who would want to believe that, except in the service of the bleakest realism? I couldn't do it to them. I'm too old, too frightened, too much in love with the shred of life I have remaining. I face an incoming tide of forgetting, and then oblivion. I no longer possess the courage of my pessimism. When I am dead, and the Marshalls are dead, and the novel is finally published, we will only exist as my inventions. Briony will be as much of a fantasy as the lovers who shared a bed in Balham and enraged their landlady. No one will care what events and which individuals were misrepresented to make a novel. I know there's always a certain kind of reader who will be compelled to ask, But what really happened? The answer is simple: the lovers survive and nourish. As long as there is a single copy, a solitary typescript of my final draft, then my spontaneous, fortuitous sister and her medical prince survive to love. 6. The problem these fifty-nine years has been this: how can a novelist achieve atonement when, with her absolute power of deciding outcomes, she is also God? There is no one, no entity or higher form that she can appeal to, or be reconciled with, or that can forgive her. There is nothing outside her. In her imagination she has set the limits and the terms. No atonement for God, or novelists, even if they are atheists. It was always an impossible task, and that was precisely the point. The attempt was all.

7. I've been standing at the window, feeling waves of tiredness beat the remaining strength from my body. The floor seems to be undulating beneath my feet. I've been watching the first grey light bring into view the park and the bridges over the vanished lake. And the long narrow driveway down which they drove Robbie away, into the whiteness. …

14. Speak on the following theoretical question: Periodization of the history of the development of the English Language
A short history of the origins and development of English The history of the English language really started with the arrival of three Germanic tribes who invaded Britain during the 5th century AD. These tribes, the Angles, the Saxons and the Jutes, crossed the North Sea from what today is Denmark and northern Germany. At that time the inhabitants of Britain spoke a Celtic language. But most of the Celtic speakers were pushed west and north by the invaders - mainly into what is now Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The Angles came from Englaland and their language was called Englisc - from which the words England and English are derived. Old English (450-1100 AD) The invading Germanic tribes spoke similar languages, which in Britain developed into what we now call Old English. Old English did not sound or look like English today. Native English speakers now would have great difficulty understanding Old English. Nevertheless, about half of the most commonly used words in Modern English have Old English roots. The words be, strong and water, for example, derive from Old English. Old English was spoken until around 1100. Middle English (1100-1500)

In 1066 William the Conqueror, the Duke of Normandy (part of modern France), invaded and conquered England. The new conquerors (called the Normans) brought with them a kind of French, which became the language of the Royal Court, and the ruling and business classes. For a period there was a kind of linguistic class division, where the lower classes spoke English and the upper classes spoke French. In the 14th century English became dominant in Britain again, but with many French words added. This language is called Middle English. It was the language of the great poet Chaucer (c1340-1400), but it would still be difficult for native English speakers to understand today. Modern English Early Modern English (1500-1800) Towards the end of Middle English, a sudden and distinct change in pronunciation (the Great Vowel Shift) started, with vowels being pronounced shorter and shorter. From the 16th century the British had contact with many peoples from around the world. This, and the Renaissance of Classical learning, meant that many new words and phrases entered the language. The invention of printing also meant that there was now a common language in print. Books became cheaper and more people learned to read. Printing also brought standardization to English. Spelling and grammar became fixed, and the dialect of London, where most publishing houses were, became the standard. In 1604 the first English dictionary was published. Late Modern English (1800-Present) The main difference between Early Modern English and Late Modern English is vocabulary. Late Modern English has many more words, arising from two principal factors: firstly, the Industrial Revolution and technology created a need for new words; secondly, the British Empire at its height covered one quarter of the earth's surface, and the English language adopted foreign words from many countries.

15.a) Comment on the structure of the given sentence. He followed her that afternoon into the living room, where an older woman was sitting on a sofa (John Cheever. Selected Short Stories. – M.: Progress Publishers, 1980. – p. 88). b) Suggested Topic for Discussion What is your interpretation of the following statement: Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one – Malcolm Forbes (US publisher)?
Malcolm Forbes suggests that "Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one." It is, then, my belief that nothing is more valuable in this period of human existence than education, for it is only through education that citizens will come to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to survive and thrive in this new knowledge-driven society. Furthermore, it is through exposure to new knowledge and concepts that minds become open to new ideas and possibilities. General Views on Education

Learning is a continual, lifelong process. Thus, it is important that educators avoid attempts to force knowledge upon learners but rather help them realize the importance of education in our society and teach using techniques that give learners a thirst for knowledge. Therefore, the educational experience should be more than simply the gathering of facts and information, but it should also foster the development of a worldview. It is my belief that education is an active rather than a passive process and that we not only learn from the material that is introduced in the classroom but also from the knowledge and the experiences brought into the classroom by the teacher as well as the student. I further believe that education should encourage the acquisition of knowledge not only for the purpose of acquiring the technical and social skills needed to function in the workplace, the classroom, and in society in general, but also for the purpose of appreciating different cultures, different disciplines and different philosophies. Education should affect the person in terms of who he/she is and enable them to better understand their world and those who live in it. Truth and opposing points of view should be welcomed and encouraged so that students may have a broader foundation upon which to develop and build their own worldview. Philosophy of Higher Education As we accept and embrace our changing society and the forces behind those changes such as the globalization of commerce and culture, the advanced educational needs of the high-tech/highperformance workplace, and the impact of new information technologies, a new paradigm in higher education must be considered. I believe that inter- and trans-disciplinary learning is vital in the educational process for today's student. It is imperative that we see sister academic disciplines as complementing and not competing with one another in the educational process. All study should be taught and pursued both objectively and critically, and each subject and discipline must be taught with a multicultural and global perspective. In an effort to enhance student development, satisfaction and success, I believe that increased opportunities for faculty-student interaction and student engagement, both on and off campus, must be encouraged and implemented. There must be an increased focus on the impact that higher education is having on both its students and the communities that are served by our colleges and universities. In addition, I believe that the structure and the various curricular offerings of our institutions of higher learning should take into account the increasing impact of a number of critical social issues that will continue to affect the future of higher education, such as: population growth and density; population aging; political, economic and cultural change due to internationalization; lifelong access to educational opportunities; and the management of an increased volume of new data and knowledge. Philosophy of Education Leadership and Planning The leadership of an institution is critical to its success. A successful education leader must be: a visionary; a team builder and team leader; a good listener; someone who asks the right questions and is able to identify and implement the best course of action for the institution; someone who is not afraid of conflict and respects and openly considers the opposing viewpoints of others; and someone who fully embraces the concept of shared governance and does not rely solely on his/her own limited perspectives, experiences and expertise to guide the institution. The management style of education leaders should be inclusive and leaders must not only lead by example, but also strive to demonstrate high levels of integrity in all of their moral, fiscal and daily dealings.

faculty. campus globalization. Those in leadership and positions throughout the institution should be sensitive and open enough to their role in the education process that they are able to determine when they are no longer effectively able to propel the mission of the institution forward and a change is needed to.

Furthermore. our institutions of higher learning must be flexible and never stagnant or complacent in regards to its academic programs. research and learning opportunities for faculty. staff and students. services and actions are in line with the overall mission of the institution. and the entire campus community should be engaged in the planning process. in order to ensure that higher education serves its expected purpose and that equal opportunities to learn are available to anyone who has an interest in receiving an education. look for new ways to partner with external entities that will not only bring in development dollars for the institution but also enhance work. institutions of higher learning must constantly assess where they are and where they are going.

Such rhymes are called compound or broken. in alternation with opposite or different elements of features" (Webster's New World Dictionary). Rhythm Rhythm exists in all spheres of human activity and assumes multifarious forms. Zhirmunsky suggests that the concept of rhythm should be distinguished from that of a metre. What is known in linguistics as transferred meaning is practically the interrelation between two types of lexical meaning: dictionary and contextual. It contributes to the general sense. or accent. Some investigators. The most general definition of rhythm may be expressed as follows: "rhythm is a flow. in attempting to find rhythmical patterns of prose. flood . variations which are governed by the standard.M. The metre is a strict regularity. There are the following rhythmic patterns of verse: iambus dactul umphibrach anapaest. D. whether it is musical. Academician V.

proverbs. purr. Euphony may be explained as a combination of pleasant sounds that do not jar the ear. That is why some authors such as professor Galperin for instance denounce it as something idealistic based on the conception that separate sounds have a meaning of their own. Then there are sounds produced by animals. birds and insects: buzz. honk. “grumble”. [l] – warm. There are some rules of euphony which must not be violated and the most important one is that there must be no rhyme in prose. It is a naming of an action or thing by a more or less exact reproduction of the sound associated with it. Direct onomatopoeia is a source of word-building. Other authors – Кузнец. e. “chatter”.

Thegoal of generative grammar is to make a complete model of this inner language (known as i-language ). [5] • The Minimalist Program(MP) (revised version of GB published by Chomsky in 1995) [6] Other theories that find their origin in the generative paradigm are . Speak on the following theoretical question: Development of Modern Grammatical Theory: Types of Grammars The hypothesis of generative grammar is that language is a structure of the human mind.17. Generative grammars are among the theories that focus primarily on the form of a sentence.Among the many generative theories of linguistics. rather than its communicative function. Most generative theories (although not all of them) assume that syntax is based uponthe constituent structure of sentences. to predict whether the utterance would soundcorrect to native speakers of the language). This approach to language was pioneered by NoamChomsky. the Chomskyan theories are: • Transformational Grammar (TG) (Original theory of generative syntax laid out byChomsky in Syntactic Structures in 1957 [4] ) • Government and binding theory(GB) (revised theory in the tradition of TG developedmainly by Chomsky in the 1970s and 1980s). This model could be used to describe all human language and to predict thegrammaticalityof any given utterance (that is.

Consider these ten varieties of grammar--and take your pick. Contemporary work in comparative grammar is concerned with "a faculty of language that provides an explanatory basis for how a human being can acquire a first language . analyze. and sentences. One basic distinction worth making is that between descriptive grammar and prescriptive grammar (also called usage). within the contexts of oral and written discourse. The intent of the course is to assist students‘ ability to describe. Specialists in descriptive grammar examine the rules or patterns that underlie our use of words. . the theory of grammar is a theory of human language and hence establishes the relationship among all languages. The course encourage collaborative learning through mini-conferences and research team Linguists are quick to remind us that there are different varieties of grammar--that is. and restructure words. phrases. clauses. clauses. structural. and discourse. clauses.

For example. So the syntactic category for anintransitiveverb is acomplex formula representing the fact that the verb acts as afunctor which requires an NP as aninput and produces a sentence level structure as an output.g. Dependency grammar . The category of transitive verbis defined as an element that requires two NPs (its subject and its direct object) toform a sentence. in categorial grammar. This is notated as (NP/(NP\S)) which means "a category that searches to theright (indicated by /) for an NP (the object).Tree-adjoining grammar is a categorial grammar that adds in partialtree structuresto thecategories. rather than assertingthat sentences are constructed by a rule that combines a noun phrase (NP) and a verb phrase (VP)(e.• Generative semantics(now largely out of date) • Relational grammar (RG) (now largely out of date) • Arc Pair grammar • Generalized phrase structure grammar (GPSG. NP\S is read as " a category that searches to the left (indicated by \) for a NP(the element on the left) and outputs a sentence (the element on the right)". and generates a function (equivalent to the VP)which is (NP\S).

Some dependency-based theories of syntax: • Algebraic syntax • Word grammar • Operator Grammar Stochastic/probabilistic grammars/network theories Theoretical approaches to syntax that are based upon probability theoryare known asstochasticgrammars. rather than being based in constituent structure. Generative Grammar The rules determining the structure and interpretation of sentences that speakers accept as belonging to the language. One common implementation of such an approach makes use of aneural network or connectionism. syntactic structure is described in terms of whether a particular nounis thesubjector agentof theverb. Press. a generative grammar is a theory of competence: a model of the psychological system of unconscious knowledge that underlies a speaker's ability to produce and interpret utterances in a language.Dependency grammar is a different type of approach in which structure is determined by therelations(such asgrammatical relations) between a word (a head ) and its dependents. rather than describing the relationsin terms of phrases. given linguistic experience.

2. Speak on the following theoretical question: The Verb and Its Categories
29 Paradigmatic and syntigmatic relations in English. Syntagmatic relations are immediate linear relations between units in a segmental sequence. The combination of two words or word-groups one of which is modified by the other forms a unit which is reffered to as a syntactic ‖ syntagma‖. There are four main types of notional syntagmas: predicative (the combination of a subject and a predicate), objective (-/- a verb and its object), attributive (a noun and attribute), adverbial (a modified notional word, such as a verb, adjective, or adverb, with its adverbial modifier). The other type of relations, opposed to syntagmatic and called ―paradigmatic‖, are such as exist between elements of the system outside the strings where they co-occur. Unlike syntagmatic relations, paradigmatic relations cannot be directly observed in utterances, that is why they are reffered to as relations ―in absentia‖. Paradigmatic relations coexist with syntagmatic relations in such a way that some sort of syntagmatic connection is necessery for the realization of any paradigmatic series. This is especially evident in a classical grammatical paradigm which presents a productive series of forms each consisting of a syntagmatic connection of two elements: one common for the whole of the series, the other specific for every individual form in the series. A linguistic unit can enter into relations of two different kinds. It enters into paradigmatic relations with all the units that can also occur in the same environment. PR are relations based on the principles of similarity. They exist between the units that can substitute one another. For instance, in the word-group A PINT OF MILK the word PINT is in paradigmatic relations with the words bottle, cup, etc. The article A can enter into PR with the units the, this, one, same, etc. According to different principles of similarity PR can be of three types: semantic, formal and functional. Semantic PR are based on the similarity of meaning: a book to read = a book for reading. He used to practice English every day - He would practice English every day. Formal PR are based on the similarity of forms. Such relations exist between the members of a paradigm: man - men; play - played - will play - is playing. Functional PR are based on the similarity of function. They are established between the elements that can occur in the same position. For instance, noun determiners: a, the, this, his, Ann‘s, some, each, etc. PR are associated with the sphere of ‗language‘. A linguistic unit enters into syntagmatic relations with other units of the same level it occurs with. SR exist at every language level. E.g. in the word-group A PINT OF MILK the word PINT contrasts SR with A, OF, MILK; within the word PINT - P, I, N and T are in syntagmatic relations. SR are linear relations, that is why they are manifested in speech. They can be of three different types: coordinate, subordinate and predicative.

Coordinate SR exist between the homogeneous linguistic units that are equal in rank, that is, they are the relations of independence: you and me; They were tired but happy. Subordinate SR are the relations of dependence when one linguistic unit depends on the other: teach + er - morphological level; a smart student - word-group level; predicative and subordinate clauses - sentence level. Predicative SR are the relations of interdependence: primary and secondary predication. As mentioned above, SR may be observed in utterances, which is impossible when we deal with PR. Therefore, PR are identified with ‗language‘ while SR are identified with ‘speech‘.

Nowadays scientists distinguish: Contrastive analysis( ontrastive analysis also brings to light what can be labelled problem pairs, the words that denote two entities in one language and correspond to two different words in another language. Compare, for example годинник in Ukrainian and clock, watch in English, художник in Ukrainian and artist, painter in English. Contrastive analysis on the level of the grammatical meaning reveals that correlated words in different languages may differ in the grammatical component of their meaning For instance when we answer a telephone call and hear somebody asking for a person whose name we have never heard the usual answer for the Ukrainian speaker would be Ви помилились (номером). The Englishman in identical situation is likely to say Wrong number ..) Statistical methods of analysis (Statistical approach proved essential in the selection of vocabulary items of a foreign language for teaching purposes. Statistical analysis of meaning frequencies resulted in the compilation of A General Service List of English Words with Semantic Frequencies. The semantic count is a count of the frequency of the occurrence of the various senses of 2,000 most frequent words as found in a study of five million running words. Immediate Constituents analysis (Thus the fundamental aim of IC analysis is to segment a set of lexical units into two maximally independent sequences or ICs thus revealing the hierarchical structure of this set. Successive segmentation results in Ultimate Constituents (UC), two-facet units that cannot be segmented into smaller units having both sound-form and meaning. The Ultimate Constituents of the word-group analysed above are: a | black | dress | in | severe | style.) Distributional analysis and co-occurrence (By the term distribution we understand the occurrence of a lexical unit relative to other lexical units of the same level (words relative to

home A phrase.) Componential analysis (Componential analysis is thus an attempt to describe the meaning of words in terms of a universal inventory of semantic components and their possible combinations. a table) or in a more generalised form may be represented as A possesses B. d3 are obtained by means of the following procedure: d1 = 'boy' = 'man' = 'bull' 'girl' 'woman' 'cow' холостяк . d2. in the sentence The boy — home the missing word is easily identified as a verb — The boy went. all elements of which.  his failure (mistake. embarrassment) may be re-patterned into he was arrested (imprisoned and embarrassed) or A is the goal of the action B. came. in the wordgroups consisting of a possessive pronoun followed by a noun.) Contextual analysis concentrates its attention on determining the minimal stretch of speech and the conditions necessary to reveal in which of its individual meanings the word in question is used. . are coded. table) may be re-patterned into he has a car (a pen. In other words by this term we understand the position which lexical units occupy or may occupy in the text or in the flow of speech. his car (pen. L. Transformational analysis (Transformational analysis in lexicological investigations may be defined as re-patterning of various distributional structures in order to discover difference or sameness of meaning of practically identical distributional patterns. including the head-word. For example. For example. his failure. table). for instance to make somebody laugh to V1 Np V2 Another example: Get + N (receive) – get letter Get + Adj (become) – get angry). що ніколи не одружувався) Method of semantic differential (All the methods of semantic analysis discussed above are aimed mainly or exclusively at the investigation of the denotational component of the lexical meaning.words / morphemes relative to morphemes). his goodness. his arrest. is called a distributional pattern. his car.

In studying this interaction of the polysemantic word with the syntactic configuration and lexical environment contextual analysis is more concerned with specific features of every particular language than with language universals.
