The cognitive approach and the frameworks of cognitive linguistics appeared practically in the 2000s in onomastic studies. Contrary to the short period of time, cognitive onomastics achieved remarkable results, that demonstrate that the cognitive approach can be used effectively in several areas of onomastics, and it can offer a solution to some questions of name research, that cannot be answered satisfactorily by formal approaches (e.g. the semantics of proper names, the problem of the status of the names which are formed from geographical common nouns etc.). Besides, applying the cognitive view new directions of research are opened up for scholars working with names, i.e. such aspects of name giving and name usage may be analyzed that have not appeared in onomastic research before (e.g. the relationship between cognitive maps and toponyms). In my paper, I overview how the cognitive approach is used in onomastic research and consider the perspectives of cognitive onomastics (dr Katalin Reszegi).

In recent years linguistic conferences organized by the Białystok circle of neophilologists have established a strong tradition in terms of providing a forum for the exchange of views on the nature of language. It all started almost fifteen years ago, in 2002. The main aim of the conferences was to provide a meeting ground for a wide range of scholars: linguists, literary scholars, foreign language teaching methodologists, to mention but a few groups of researchers participating in the events. The conferences explored the relationship between language, culture, and social interaction. They were often organized in co-operation with French language scholars.

Research in the Arts, the Arts in Research

Artists study the reality they are surrounded by, people they live among, themselves, their instruments of work and how these areas are interconnected. Their work addresses complex issues, establishing dynamic relationships to a whole variety of other disciplines, from philosophy to new technologies. Their creative activity generates knowledge that could not be gained otherwise. Artistic knowledge is acquired through sensory and emotional perception and is practice-based, practice-driven, ‘felt’, ‘embodied’. It crosses the borders of different countries, languages, cultures, disciplines. Many artistic research projects are genuinely multicultural and interdisciplinary. Yet artists still often have to justify the idea that their practice is research.
