METAPHOR OF THE “HOUSE” IN THE POETRY OF P.A. VIAZHEMSKY (ON THE EXAMPLE OF “OSTAFYEVO” POEM)

Posted in 2017, Issue № 5(59) May 2017, PHILOLOGY | 0 comments

In this article, we consider the metaphor of the “house” image in the “Ostafyevo” poem, by P. A. Vyazemsky. Vyazemsky’s patrimonial estate is a specific locus in the specific historical space of Russia in the XIX century. In the poem, this image goes through a consistent metaphorization, the essence of which is the understanding of the place of a man in the world. The image of the manor in Vyazemsky’s poem is polysemantic. First of all, it includes the history of the family, the “manor estate”, becomes a linking element in the life of several generations. This is the place where the past and present, time and eternity, living and dead, old and young, life and death meet. The meeting takes place both in the memory and in the mind of the autobiographical hero, just like in real time and space. Feeling the approach of “autumn” (senility, death), the author overcomes the idea of non-existence by affirming the unchanging order of existence: an autumn is replaced by a spring, one generation is replaced by another, and life triumphs in the end. The final metaphor of the poem is “return home,” to the place where the hero was born and where he will leave for good.

The article is devoted to the speech environment that is created by the messenger Telegram in the form of authorial information of Russian- language channels, the so-called Telegram Channels. We analyze, for instance, the speech practices of an anonymous insider “Nezigar” Telegram Channel and determine the characteristic features of these practices. The anonymous authors’ position themselves as people who own insider information, independent from a particular political party and government body and have access to authoritative high-rank private sources of information.

ROLE OF FIGURES OF SPEECH AND EXPRESSIVE MEANS IN RECONSTRUCTION OF LINGUISTIC IMAGE OF THE WORLD (BASED ON “BOOK OF PROVERBS”)

Posted in 2017, Issue № 4(58) April 2017, PHILOLOGY | 0 comments

The article considers the role of expressive means in the reconstruction of the linguistic image of the world based on the “Book of Proverbs” in the English translation of King James. The linguistic image of the world is understood as the set of people’s world representations fixed in a multilayer system of a language at a certain stage of human development with regard to socio-cultural and psychophysical factors. Non-linguistic (non-verbal) means also take part in its reconstruction, categorization and conceptualization, along with linguistic means. An important role is played by language means. One of these means is expressive, but it reflects only a fragment of the linguistic image of the world. In this regard, expressive means are treated as a means of representativeness and expressiveness which carry additional connotative information at all language levels.
The method of continuous sampling helped the author to identify a list of figures of speech and expressive means in the context of the Bible: Metonymy, synecdoche, metaphor, personification, epithet, antithesis, comparison, and hyperbole. Their role in the formation of the linguistic image of the world is determined based on the functions they perform in biblical parables. The analysis of 1360 examples of expressive means showed that the main functions performed by expressive means are appealing, voluntative and expressive.

Non-equilibrium of orientation parameters “top-bottom,” “front-back,” “beginning-end” when designating the subject of professional activity is indicated, features of its geometric conceptualization (through the concepts of one-dimensional, two-dimensional and three-dimensional space) are revealed, the relations between the subject and the object of activity are characterized. It is established that the naming of a person by the place of activity is one of the main motivational types of the category of a public figure.
