Summary / Abstract:

ENThe title has an evident rhetorical pragmatics. It does not merely introduce or announce concrete concentrated information while presenting the theme, but also makes a memorable first impression; it affects, tempts, convinces, intrigues, surprises, shocks the addressee, makes him laugh, argues rhetorically and gives an aesthetic pleasure with the help of various rhetorical figures. The topic of the report is absolutely novel, the titles of Lithuanian works of poetry and prose for children are being analysed in the aspect of rhetoric for the first time. The title is presented as an important part of work that characterizes the whole piece of writing and influences one's choice and as a separate rhetorical work which has its independent value, reveals the essence and affects the reader. Titles in children's literature are extremely catchy; they are like small advertising posters full of colourful rhetorical decoration elements. An author puts a lot of his imagination into them, by playing with the semantic, grammatical and phonetic sounding of words. Wordplay is based on the psychological aspect trying to get closer to the mindset of the - addressee and to wake his/her imagination. Besides the diminutives and metaphors very much enjoyed by children, there are rhetorical figures - extremely effective devices for evoking interest, making a direct contact with children which contains warm communication and close emotional bond. It is discussed which of the rhetorical figures are the most successful when trying to attract the reader's attention, to speak to a child's heart and to involve him subtly into reading. Rhetoric figures under the investigation are mixed with tropes (metaphors of different kinds) and because of that their effect is even stronger. Our small readers prefer titles including consonances of tropes and witty grammatical words. [From the publication]
