Abstract

In the paper the concept of "situation" in a linguistic context is discusses, and is defined as a complex of interrelated events occurring in a particular place and time. The difference between situations and events is explained, thus events are considered as part of the situation. The event structure of the situation is proposed, which includes the composition of its participants (actants) and their role in the interaction that binds them in a given situation, as well as the circonstants. With the help of the frame/script description, a characteristic of such class of situations as a situation of confrontation is proposed.
