The project’s goal is to give an answer to the growing attention about the theme for the everyday life of the person during different historical periods, its cognitive and value expirience, its relations with the world around. New lexical information about the main areas of life that will be searched is: person and nature (weather, seasons, natural disasters, astronomical objects etc.); person and his living (homes and dishes; foods and drinks, clothes etc.); person and society (names, profesions and social realisation, christian values etc.). The theme enriches with new material the historical dictionaries of the two neighboring languages. Theoretical summary about the culture of the Middle ages will be padded with new empirical material from manuscripts in the bulgarian and romanian book depositories.
The project is part of the priorirty scientific direction of the Institute for Bulgarian language Cultural and Historical Linguistic Heritage of Bulgaria
