However, these terms easily acquire new ...

The article shows that cultural transfer explains the fact that philosophical ...

The process of copying and transferring non-genetic information in time and space is never perfect. Mutations occur in replicator populations. The imperfect linguocultural ...

The recognizability of intertextemes in both authentic and modified forms contributes to the attractivity of the urban text and its dialogical nature.
