Genesis of the Logico-Semantic Organization of Adolescents Speech in the Post-Nonclassical Perspective of the Contemporaneity

Keywords: speech utterance, logical-semantic organization of the text, speech development, teenager, post-neoclassical perspective


The article presents the results of theoretical and empirical analysis of the trends in the speech development of adolescents in the context of psycholinguistic scientific space. As one of the vectors of adolescents’ thought-speech activity development, the author considers the development of the logical-semantic organization of the speech utterance, which is a complex unity of interrelated but phenomenologically independent phenomena: object-meaning and logical ordering of speech utterance structure.

The necessity of using the post-neoclassical approach (evolutionary-synergetic paradigm of scientific rationality) to study the trends in the variability of modern adolescents speech development is grounded in the article, which makes it possible to analyze the phenomenological field of speech from the standpoint of the development of open dissipative systems in the unity of the socio-cultural, psychological and psycholinguistic contexts.

Empirical study procedure involves the study of the features of logical-semantic organization of teenager’s speech activity of by the formation of written speech utterance by the method of quasi-creative work with the supports. The subject of analysis were meaningful text content (denotative content presentation units and their hierarchical matching) and logical ordering of the speech utterance structure (proportional correlation of each of the microtopics within the logics of integral text, compliance consistency of information blocks, ensuring communications between first-order predicators). Comparison of the average values of predicators of the psycholinguistic profile of verbal constructs of adolescents of different ages revealed certain differences in the compared groups and showed nonlinearity of the respondents speech development.

The data obtained are interpreted by the author as the conditionality of the schoolchildren’ speech development not only by the external situational and contextual influence of the educational process, but also by the specificity of age-related neoplasms of the cognitive spectrum. In this context, the purposeful formation of the communicative culture of an individual, mastery of effective ways of forming and formulating thoughts in the logic of dialogical partnership is defined as an indispensable prerequisite for the personal development of adolescents.
