Slovak-Polish Language and Cultural Contacts
Slovensko-poľské jazykové a kultúrne kontakty
Program: Medziakademická dohoda (MAD)
Project leader: Doc. Mgr. Žeňuchová Katarína PhD.
Annotation:The project focuses on the interdisciplinary research of Polish-Slovak relations with particular reference to selected aspects of linguistic, ethnolinguistic, musical, literary and cultural contacts. The main focus will be on the lexical-semantic phenomenon of interlingual homonymy, which is one of the key problems of comparative research of Slavic languages. In the ethnolinguistic field we will work with a wider understanding of the ethnolinguistic discourses. Moreover, varieties of the national language, including literary language in the whole spectrum of historical and synchronic linguistic research will be discussed. The musical research will focus on the Cyrillic manuscripts from the South-Eastern Polish borders between 17th-19th centuries, where the common textual and musical modifications might be expected. In the field of cultural-literary research, issues closely connected with history of Poland and Slovakia in 19th and 20th century will be pointed out. Also, PhD. student of Jan Stanislav Institute of Slavistics of the SAS is a member of the research team.

Music theory in Slovakia in the 16th –18th centuries
Hudobná teória na Slovensku v 16.–18. storočí
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. art. Kačic Ladislav PhD.
Annotation:Music theory is one of the hitherto little-researched areas of older history in Slovakia. In contrast e.g. to the Czech Republic, in Slovakia there is an entire absence of an edition of important sources from the 16th to the 19th centuries, which might offer high-quality text-critical publications for the benefit of further (including international) research as well as teaching practice. Such publications presuppose the collaboration of music historians and philologists, a requirement which this project will for the first time fulfil.

Everyday Life in Interaction of Latin and Byzantine Culture on Example of Carpathian Region in Modern Period
Každodennosť v interakcii latinskej a byzantskej kultúry na príklade karpatského regiónu v novoveku
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Prof. PhDr. ThDr. Zubko Peter PhD.
Annotation:Research of everyday life against the background of confessional stereotypes helps to explore history of society. Interactions in the area under Carpathians where western and eastern cultures meet represents grateful research subject. It is necessary to clarify processes that formed population in the region under Carpathians as well as their own culture and lead to ethnic or religious tensions. Synergy of each ethnic-confessional communities represents a balanced entirety based on natural intercultural and interconfessional communication and mobility. This relation is mirrored in contemporary Latin and Cyrillic literary culture, especially in administrative-legal agenda, official documents, homilies, morals, rules of secular and monastic life and their interpretations, different manuals, catechisms, and musical monuments. In this context relation between Eastern and major Latin culture on the background of interactions with state or actual forced political ideology is specifically observed.

SLAVMYT - Mythological conceptions about the world in the narrative sources in Slovakia in the system of Slavic linguistic and cultural relations
Mytologické predstavy o svete v naratívnych prameňoch na Slovensku v systéme slovanských jazykových a kultúrnych vzťahov

The project initiative also includes an edition of rare, yet unprocessed narrative sources concerning the Slovak cultural space, which show the mythical reflection of the creation of system / order / justice / law, established in the cultural memory of the community, giving its comprehensive interpretation through the prism of ethnolinguistics and theory of signs (cultural semiotics).

State and Prospects of Ethnolinguistic Research in Slovakia
Stav a perspektívy etnolingvistického výskumu na Slovensku
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Doc. Mgr. Žeňuchová Katarína PhD.
Annotation:The project is focused on research of language as a cultural phenomenon that works in a broader national context in union with the traditional spiritual culture (rituals, customs, superstitions) and oral folklore tradition. This perspective on language has found its expression in ethnolinguistics, which explores the close connection between language and the traditional spiritual culture as two inseparable and mutually contingent components of social identity. Ethnolinguistics perceives language as a means of communication, but above all as an expression of the culture of each community through various concepts and verbal statements related to economic, historical, social and spiritual milieu with regard to its development. Within the project we will focus on selected ethnolinguistic phenomena in relation to current existing ethnolinguistically oriented research in Slovakia, which is essential also for the Slavic ethnolinguistics in general.

Edition of Cyrillic Manuscript from 18th Century with Commentary and Notes
Vydanie cyrilského rukopisu z 18. storočia s komentármi a poznámkovým aparátom
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Prof. PhDr. Žeňuch Peter DrSc.
Annotation:The project focuses on the commented edition of Cyrillic manuscript with description of the cultural and historical development of the Byzantine- Slavic confession from the 18th century in the Carpathian area. The manuscript presents unique set of historical events commented by author, which are based on contemporary Latin and Church Slavic sources, chronicles and former historical and ecclesiological writings in narrative and literary sources (Apology, lives of Saints, chronicles etc.), that is in such an amount rarity. This manuscript, therefore, will assess levels in education among prominent figures of cultural and social process, the holders of the Eastern Rite in Slovakia. Confrontation with traditional Latin environment reveals particularities of cultural communication and ways they have been dealt with in order to maintain own identity on a map of Hungary. Edition, including diplomatic transcription will contain critical commentary on identified sources quoted in manuscript.
