Application Of The Cognitive Linguistics Methodology In The Process Of Identifying The Linguistic Potential Of The Child

Abstract :

In pedagogics, situated the field of social sciences, yet still associated with the humanities, there are more and more qualitative research where the child - according to the methodology of qualitative research - is a research subject. It is the child who, due to their phenomenological subjectivity, requires researchers to reflect on the ethics of behaviour, even if the subject of such research is the child’s behaviour/ feelings/ attitudes/ competences. Researchers give attention to the child, turn to the child, collect data/ information/ opinions about the child, talk to the child, observe the child, etc.
