Summary/Abstract: The collective monograph entitled Various Dimensions of Contrastive Studies contains nineteen articles written by researchers from university centres in Poland and other European countries. The authors analyse mainly data from English and Polish, including also linguistic material from other Germanic or Slavic languages, as well as from Romanic, Celtic, Altaic and Finno-Ugric languages. The chapters that make up the first part of this volume discuss the theoretical issues of the phonological, morphological or syntactic system of the languages being compared. The chapters in the second part focus on lexical issues, referring, among others, to the mechanism of conceptual metaphor and specialist terminology. The third part contains chapters on academic discourse, on the relationships between culture and language, and on the process of acquiring a foreign language. The monograph presents a variety of research problems in the field of contrastive linguistics. It is also an illustration of the variety of research methods and theoretical assumptions adopted by the authors of the texts. The book is addressed to linguists engaged in contrastive research (in various theoretical approaches). It can also be useful for philology students and other readers interested in language contact and linguistic diversity.
