Meta-Cognitive Investigation of Translation as Bilingual Communication. Prof. Dr. N. Maskaliūnienė. 2015–2020.

In 2018, the academic staff of the Department wrote articles, participated at conferences on literary translation, translation theory and translation training methodology (gave 13 presentations at different international conferences). The Department publishes a research journal Vertimo studijos (Translation Studies). In 2018, its volume no. 11 was published containing 10 articles on different aspects of Translation Studies, the authors being mainly foreign researchers, which shows the appreciation the journal has gained during the ten years of its issuance.

Studies in the Bible Translation. Dr. A. Ratkus.

The researcher investigates the structure and properties of Gothic, which come from the Gothic translation of the New Testament from Greek. A comparison of the Gothic Bible and different versions of the Greek New Testament gives a taxonomy of structural and linguistic differences. Studies in the Gothic Bible translation have already yielded a number of valuable findings.

European Commission funded project

On-line Resources for Conference Interpreter Training (ORCIT VI). Project coordinator Prof. Dr. N. Maskaliūnienė. 2011–2018.

In 2018, we finished the ORCIT project, which aimed to develop and pilot an open interactive multi-media learning resource in conference interpreting skills using a designated website for this purpose (www.orcit.eu). The interactive medium was intended for postgraduate interpreter training schools in the EU member states and non-EU countries where postgraduate training in conference interpreting is being offered or envisaged. The partners of the project comprised the University of Vilnius, Lithuania, the University of Leeds, UK, Aristotle University of Tsesaloniki, Greece, Charles University in Prague, La Laguna University of Tenerrife, Spain, the University of Heidelberg, Germany, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, and ISIT in Paris, France.

Research Council of Lithuania. Algirdas Julien Greimas: Ideas. Prof. Habil. Dr. A. Sverdiolas. 2016–2018.

The project, completed in 2018, carries a systematic examination and comprehensive revaluation of the heritage of Algirdas Julius Greimas (comprising his scholarly work in semiotics, writings in cultural studies and journalism, and egodocuments) and, in this context, presents Greimassian semiotics and its contemporary extensions as a methodologically coherent investigation of culture. It brought together an international team of scholars to examine, assess, and publish Greimas’s texts that had not been given sufficient scholarly attention; to reflect on the theoretical and methodological potential of the contemporary branches of semiotics grounded in Greimassian methods; and to reconsider current issues in contemporary semiotics. Greimas’s heritage has been presented to the Lithuanian and international public at a number of events celebrating the centenary of Greimas’s birth and a series of publications in peer-reviewed and other periodical press.

Research Council of Lithuania. Microhistory of The Voices of Spring: Genetic Reconstruction of Modernization of Lithuanian Texts. Prof. P. Subačius. 2017–2019.

Maironis was proclaimed the father of modern Lithuanian literature already in his lifetime. The 1st and the 5th authorial editions of “The Voices of Spring” are separated by thousands of textual (linguistic and bibliographic code) variants, which include all layers of spelling, punctuation, morphology, vocabulary and syntactical units, figurative expression and versification, graphic layout and book design. Development lasting four decades (since the first published verses in 1885 until 1927) witness the efforts to adapt to the linguistic, ideological and aesthetic modernization, which coincided with the period of Maironis’ creative and social activity. The project targets at a paradoxical gap ‐ although much has been written about Maironis, critics usually heed to the final result of his work only. Author’s decision to re‐edit the sole collection of the verses “The Voices of Spring” go with the methodology of genetic criticism in the best way. The project aims at carrying out a genetic reconstruction, to present the facsimiles, to publish the XML‐encoded versions and commentaries employing a single critical archive, i.e. a comprehensive digital platform, synthesising academic and popularisation functions.

Research in Structural and Functional Peculiarities of Germanic, Romance, Slavonic and Lithuanian Languages. Prof. Dr. R. Kriaučiūnienė. 2010–2018.

One of the research trends of the Department (carried out in close collaboration with the colleagues of other departmens) was the analysis of structural and functional characteristics of the Germanic and Lithuanian languages. In 2018, researchers delivered presentations at international conferences sharing their research findings in the following areas: disputable aspects of the historical development of constituents in German compounds, similiarities and differencies between languages of the former Yugoslavia, as well as the analysis of linguistic diversity and the new terminology of polylingualism, translanguaging and metrolingualism, examining the usage of languages other than Lithuanian in everyday spoken discourse in working environments.

Research in Germanic, Romance and Slavonic Literatures and Cultures. Prof. Dr. R. Kriaučiūnienė. 2010–2018.

The traditions of literatures and cultures, and their relationship with the Lithuanian language and culture were analysed. The research encompasses literary, stylistic and gender studies. This year’s research included the analysis of different issues of identity, reality, fiction and myth, as well as the crisis of Modernity, words related to time as a reflection of the difference between Russian and anglophone cultures, Mikhail Bakhtin’s “Grounded Peace” in the life and teaching of Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica, as well as sexual euphemisms in contemporary American romance novels.

Projects Supported by University Budget

Research in Structural and Functional Peculiarities of the Germanic, Romance, Slavonic and Lithuanian Languages. Assoc. Prof. Dr. D.Jarmalavičius.

The current research includes the analysis of the German nominal compounds in the handwritten Baltic bilingual dictionaries from the 17th–18th centuries with the following problematic aspects identified: the lack of precise terminology, which needs to be corrected in the synchronic theory of word-formation on the one hand, and on the other, difficulties in the differentiation of the word-formation patterns.

Language Teaching as a Prerequisite of the Development of Professional Competencies. Assoc. Prof. Dr. V. J. Pukevičiūtė.

The research focused on the development of students’ competences of planning their independent learning process - learning how to learn. Importance of students’ ability and readiness to effectively plan their learning in the context of the development of learning to learn skills was investigated and the competence of students to plan the learning itself measured. The analysis of different issues of application of CLIL was carried out in close collaboration with the researchers of other departments of the institute.
