Comprehension of Polysemous Expressions in a Pre-School Child
Bendíková, Barbora ; Saicová Římalová, Lucie (advisor) ; Šormová, Kateřina (referee)
The bachelor's paper focuses on the comprehension of polysemous expressions and ambiguous syntactic constructions in pre-school children. The goal of the paper is to find out, whether and how children understand polysemy, focusing closer on chosen metaphorical and metonymical transfers, and ambiguity in selected constructions. An original battery of questions has been created for this purpose, the data were being collected by a series of recorded semi-structured interviews with three children. Afterwards, the interviews were transcribed using a combination of the transcription systems GAT 2 and CHAT and analyzed. The collected data also contained interviews with every child's parent to provide closer information about the child and its linguistic, mental and social development. The results of the paper have shown that children understand many of the metaphorical (e. g. personification) and metonymical (e. g. synecdoche) transfers. It seems however, that they perceive them mostly unconsciously (as something given). On the other hand, the collected data have suggested a certain ability of the children to produce the transfers freely, depending on the given context.
