Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article analyses tropes used in Lithuanian science popularisation texts. Tropes allow to perceive the research object in a new way and to create a possibility of approaching usual concepts from different perspectives. The research data reveal that firstly tropes (metaphor, metonymy, etc.) perform the function of impact. One of the most important function, i.e. esthetical one, is only secondary in the analysed texts. The potential of such figures to convey factual information in a concise manner becomes essential in science popularisation texts. [From the publication]
