Dr Iryna B. Morozova
Odesa Mechnikov National University, Ukraine

Dr Iryna Morozova is a full professor (Doctor of Philological Sciences, Grand PhD) at Odesa Mechnikov National University. She was the first in Ukraine to suggest applying the Gestalt approach to the theory of syntax by treating any linguistic phenomenon as a centred multidimensional formation which is reflected in its Gestalt properties, but is still richer than their sum total. This approach allowed penetrating into the essence of many linguistic phenomena and disclosing the inner mechanisms of their functioning in English.

Iryna Morozova has authored four monographs (including Structure and semantics of elementary communicative units in modern English: Paradigmatic analysis in the light of Gestalt theory, 2009) and five grammar books recommended by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine for university students majoring in English; altogether she has authored over 150 papers.

At present, Dr Morozova supervises her linguistic school’s multi-year project on syntactic profiling human speech by using Gestalt approach. She does research in the following spheres: literary semantics; sociolinguistics; psycholinguistics; cognitive, communicative, applied linguistics; general linguistics; theory and practice of translation; intercultural communication.
