LIBRI (Recherche et Innovation Eclectique en Linguistique et Littérature)

LIBRI (Recherche et Innovation Eclectique en Linguistique et Littérature) représente la matérialisation d’un projet initié par deux universitaires, Bogdan Patrut et Ioan – Lucian Popa.

Il s’agit d’une revue en ligne, érudite, internationale, destinée aux spécialistes qui s’intéressent à la linguistique, à la littérature, aux études culturelles et aux autres domaines connexes. La rédaction ne publie que des articles originaux, rédigés en anglais ou en français.

Nous nous proposons d’explorer et d’examiner les mondes d’idées existants et d’établir de nouveaux territoires. Nous envisageons de collaborer avec des centres d’excellence du monde entier afin de fournir des informations et des comptes rendus autorisés dans les disciplines et les domaines spécialisés des sciences humaines. Notre ambition est d’encourager et de soutenir la pensée innovante, mais nous espérons également devenir une partie importante dans le paysage des publications académiques. Notre but est de faire de LiBRI une publication où les jeunes chercheurs, de même que les chercheurs réputés publient, comparent leur travail et établissent des collaborations.

The Visual Representation of the Sacred
The Visual Representation of the Sacred

Firstly, the paper defines the word “sacred” as not being related to literature or arts. But, as seen in the next lines, we realize that this word has a very large meaning. Still, the author offers broad perspectives on the Romanian, English and French definitions on the term, also decribing Rudolf Otto’s perspective, a German theologian and philosopher, and one of Mircea Eliade, a Romanian historian of religions. The author focused on the Romanian-French-English perspective of the concept and reveals the origins of the word “sacred”, linking it to its meanings.

LIBRI: The Values of Antiquity in Contemporary Literature and Arts

In the entitled article The Values of Antiquity in Contemporary Literature and Arts, Ph.D. and lecturer, Paula Onofrei is aiming to find the common grounds between the art of the Antiquity and the art of the modern era. The article refers to both visual art and literature and their ancient legacy that is still visible today.

There is no doubt that Antiquity was and still is a source of inspiration for the modern art. It is undeniable that without the ancient period, not only we would be unable to create a link between the modern art and the past, but there wouldn’t be any art at all.

LiBRI: The Dynamism of Free Combinations Concerning a Part of Speech: The Adjective in French

This paper is related to peculiar aspects of French grammar, namely the adjectival behaviour along its evolution from free combinations. The analysis starts from the status of the adjective as modifier of a noun to the one of being a modifier of itself (nominalization), to verbal modifier. The author of this paper, Daniela Bordea, provides linguists and grammarians with a careful study of the values of the adjective, from the so called free combinations to free forms. Also, there is defined and explained the adjectival release process followed by the analysis of the characteristics and values of the adjectival release placed in contrast with those of the adjective in free combination.

LiBRI: Risk-Assessment for Stylistic Problems in Writing and Translating Technical Texts

Nadia-Nicoleta Morărașu and Luminița Drugă acknowledge not only the importance and utility of technical translation, but also the risks that this transfer of meaning imply if the translation is not accurate. The two authors aim at clearly establishing the hazards implied by an excessive usage of technical jargon, the evaluation of specific risks and the proposal of certain precaution measures.

Risk-assessment is considered to belong both to technical jargon and business speak and it is identified as a five-stage process including: identifying the hazards; identifying who may be harmed and the type of harms; evaluating the risks and deciding on precautions; recording findings and implementing them; reviewing assessment and updating if necessary. Then, the two professors attempt to transfer these concepts into the field of language studies so as to perform a reliable risk-assessment for technical writing and, subsequently, for technical translation.
