Abstract:   (91 Views)
The article is devoted to the problems of text comprehension making emphasis on the emotional aspect of the process. In the experimental research the results of which are discussed in the present paper text comprehension is considered to be a process of emotional feeling of the information perceived by a recipient, such as joy, surprise, empathy, disapproval, hostility, wrath, malevolence. Special attention is paid to ‘co-feeling’ or empathy experienced by an addressee of information presented in different text-types. The experiments under discussion have been conducted using texts from the Bible, glossy magazines and the Internet microblogs taken as an object for comprehension.
To make the recipients’ feelings aroused in the reading process explicit the authors used the method of the “internal counter-text” developed by A. Novikov and based on the idea of an active recipient constructing an internal ‘counter-text’ in the verbal consciousness while reading. The experimental data prove that the text-type and the peculiarities of the discourse contribute much to the comprehension strategies used by recipients, but information of any kind provokes different forms of emotions constantly accompanying the process of text perception and comprehension.
