Abstract

The last years in Greece second generation immigrants who study at Greek schools use Greek language fluently and in many cases they speak Greek in such a proficiency that are not recognizable as non-Greeks. Primarily this means that these individuals master the mechanism of parole. Moreover, these persons meet the demands of education, which signifies the mastering of langue. In a secondary level of approach the question arising is whether the structural elements of langue i.e. the archetypes corresponding to abstract notions are similar to those of the greek native speakers. Considering that young Greeks acquire the ‗greek‘ meaning of a word, the research is focused on the examination of the way young immigrants acquire the meanings of words. More specifically, which way young immigrants perceive abstract meanings? In their own linguistic frame or through dominant language? In other words, I shall approach the production of langue in its base, i.e. in the level of the abstract notions.
