Presentation title: The Notion "Popularity" in the Entertainment Discourse
(together with Professor, Doctor of Science (Philology) Lyudmyla Vasylivna Soloshchuk)
Abstract: The research focuses on revealing the essence of the notion “popularity” in the entertainment discourse based on the research of the lingual and non-lingual behavior of influencers – talk show hosts. “Popularity” as an object of linguistic research is increasingly attracting the attention of scholars studying the linguo-cognitive, communicative-pragmatic, linguo-semiotic, sociolinguistic, linguistic, and gender aspects of its verbalization. Verbal, nonverbal and extra-linguistic means of “popularity” creation on the examples of the influencers’ performances are characterized. The main qualities of popularity are presented in the research on the basis of the examples demonstrating the specific lingual and non-lingual means in the speeches of well-known English-speaking influencers.
