Abstract

In the paper on the basis of existing theoretical knowledge, the authors advance the methodological grounds for the interdisciplinary study of self-developing cognitive processes of children’s manipulative speech generation and its prosodic actualization. The authors have chosen the well-known Klymenyuk’s pyramid as the central tool for the procedure of the research methodological substantiation. This pyramid is a model of the individual’s spiritual being, which under the partial control of consciousness occurs in the existential, transcendental and mental spheres of his/her psyche. Due to the algorithmic logic of the paper outline, the authors formed a set of scientific procedures aimed at presenting a qualitative picture of self-developing cognitive acts that take place in the process of generating and actualizing the children’s manipulative speech, as well as at identifying the leading linguistic and extra-linguistic means of its oral materialization. The paper also presents a criterion and a calculation formula for the quantitative assessment of the emotional-and-pragmatic potential level at each bifurcation point that determines typical patterns of phonoconcepts’ self-development of the children’s manipulative speech, characteristic of a child’s pragmatic intentions in definite communicative situations. The stipulations outlined in the paper make it possible to consider the communicative phenomenon of children’s manipulation on at least two scales: a large one that is reflected by the complete attractor structure, and a small one – being analyzed within any partial attractor. It is emphasized that the prospects of using the methodology of the step-by-step analysis of the children’s manipulative speech prosodic organization, outlined in this paper, lies in a comprehensive qualitative and quantitative assessment of the regularities of functioning and redistribution of the phonoconcepts’ emotional-and-pragmatic potential, in particular, and of any known means of communication, in general.
