The International Scientific and Practical Conference "Topical Problems of Philological Science: Contemporary Scientific Discussions" was held at the Faculty of Linguistics and Translation of the International Humanitarian University. It was dedicated to the scientific jubilee of Doctor of Philology, Professor Valentin Grigorovich Taranets, who passed the glorious way from a student, post-graduate student, Associate Professor to Professor, Doctor of Philological Sciences, and a prominent scholar. Many years of selfless work at all levels of the teaching and scientific path have earned him deep respect.
It is therefore not surprising that colleagues, relatives and beloved disciples: former students, postgraduates, and doctoral students came to congratulate him. The scientific school of Valentin G.Taranets is known not only on the territory of Ukraine, but also far beyond its borders. Under his leadership, 18 dissertations were prepared and defended. Today they are reputable researchers; there are doctors and candidates of philological sciences, professors and associate professors among them. Valentin Grigorovich can be rightly proud of his disciples.
The scientific interests of Valentin G.Taranets are quite diverse: German studies, Slavic studies, general linguistics and Indo-European studies. Within the period of Valentin Grigorovich’s academic work he prepared 9 monographs and about 160 scientific and pedagogical works, in which the main place is occupied by research on diachrony, as well as comparative-historical study of Germanic and Slavonic languages in the field of phonetics, grammar, semantics and etymology.
Dear Valentin Grigorovich, we congratulate you on this wonderful jubilee and wish you good health, happy longevity and all the best! Write, create, and we look forward to your new work!
