Abstract:

In this presentation we will try to focus on certain linguistic features of agglutinative languages as compared to English with regard to the so-called “extralinguistic reality” relying on previous data by both sociolinguistic and psycholinguistic research, but also on certain philosophical thoughts related to language. In order to reach our objective we are going to focus on two well-known linguistic phenomena, language fiction and linguistic image, which, although studied since the beginning of the previous millennium, remain unbeaten paths in linguistics. Their study reveals information about certain etymological roots and, first and foremost, aims at helping linguists to know better the above-mentioned languages and use the respective characteristics of the grammatical structures, but also, aims at helping translators in their difficult task of transmitting the different works not only as regards the rendering of the text from one language to another but also cutting through the dark tunnels of the history linking the different cultures. We will support our stance by giving examples of phraseological, idiomatic and syntactic phrases which properly express history and culture, therefore the inheritance of the national mentality of different nations and linguistic communities.
