Cognitive-conceptual properties of dialogue in their formal-conversational and pragmatic manifestations

  • N. K. Kravchenko
Keywords: concepts, conceptual space, cognitive contexts, dialogue, intertextuality, formal-conversational, pragmatic


The article views the dialogue as a compound conceptual space based on the interactants’ cognitive contexts as key sources of Dialogue’s comprehensive intertextuality. Typology of concepts constructing dialogic conceptual space include categorical identity concepts, operative identity concepts, interactive concepts, concepts-ideas, a genre concept, and social-semiotic concepts. Concepts are manifested or marked by formal-conversational and pragmatic means. There seem to be some regular correspondences between concepts’ types and their indexing formal and pragmatic properties of the dialogue.
