14. Asymmetries in participial modification
The paper focuses on differences in the construal relations between participial constructions as used postnominally and prenominally in English and Polish. Their meaning is taken to be a function of both conceptual content of an expression and its construal. It is assumed that construal principles involved in building alternate profiles of expressions determine their conceptualizations. Consecutive sections of the paper present a discussion of, first, present participle modification in English and Polish, then past participle modification in English and Polish and establish a system of cognitive contrastive parameters which can serve as tertium comparations in the analysis.
Keywords: adjective, aspect, conceptual content, construal, contrastive analysis, English, equivalence, figure/ground relations, grounding, modification (prenominal -, postnominal -), participle (passive -, past -, present -) Polish, profiling, scanning (sequential -, summary -), schematicity, tertium comparationis, verb, voice (active -,middle -, passive -)
