Intertekstinės A. Antonovičiaus monografijos „Baltarusiški tekstai, užrašyti arabiškais rašmenimis, ir jų grafinė-ortografinė sistema“ perskaitymo galimybės: paprotinės teisės aspektas
Very few articles have been written about A. Antonowitz book „Byelorussian texts noted in Arabic letters and their graphic-orthographic system“, but there was issued one fundamental study by G. Miškinienė „The oldest manuscripts of the Lithuanian Tatars: graphics, transliteration, translation, structure of texts and content“. The aim of this paper is to fill in the niche in the investigation of multilingual texts, created by authors and copyists in the wide area of the present Lithuania, Polish and Belarus. The article is mostly concentrated on different aspects of customary law, but, aiming to show the wholeness and uniqueness of the manuscript heritage, intertextual aspect of the texts published in A. Antonowitz book is taken into account as well. The paper consists of introduction, two analytical parts and conclusions. The most important aspects of texts are the formation of the community custom tradition, the showing out of the most important semantic centres. The language of Byelorussian texts written in the Arabic script is very close to the people`s spoken tongue. It reflects many a typical feature of the South-West Byelorussian and Polish dialects as well as the peculiarities of a narrow belt of the Lithuanian dialects and those of the South-West part of the Polock group, directly adjoining the Lithuanian speech territory. In connection with the above considerations it should be noted that the texts in A. Antonowitz book constitute rather reliable material for studying such phenomes of the customary law as conception of goodness and evil, sense of community. The analysed texts were being formed together with the literature of those times, adapting to the general tendencies of the development. The main direction of the formation of texts (mostly anonymous, but sometimes authorized) is the growing content of customary images, the richness of associations and the growth of cultural contexts. The paper ends with conclusions, which resume the process of the work and the most important discoveries.
