Posted in 2020, Issue № 12(102) December 2020, PHILOLOGY | 0 comments

Contemporary linguistics has a long history of development. Cognitive linguistics is one of the major scientific directions of the XXI century. The XXI century is characterized as an era of globalization, cultural integration, creation of a common economic and cultural space for various peoples. Linguistic and cultural modeling of reality is one of the most actively developing areas of linguistics. The relevance of this study owes to the fact that many issues in this field, including the linguistic and cultural specifics of aesthetic assessment, still remain unexplored. The linguistic and cultural concept of “beauty” in the Azerbaijani language is a complex mental formation. The general characteristics of the concept of “beauty” in the Azerbaijani culture of language are reduced to compliance with the ideal. This is in the opposition to directly emotional and rationally positive aesthetic assessment, emphasizing the choice as a condition for recognizing something that meets the criteria of beauty. The research uses a method of comparison to analyze the facts of paremiology, which are dominated by the idea of the unity of beauty and kindness, which comprises the scientific novelty of the article. The article also examines the stylistic role of epithets, which in classic Azerbaijani literature and folklore act as one of the main means of figurative characterization of characters. In the conclusion of the article, the author notes that the ethnocultural specificity of lexical implementation of the concept of “beauty” in the Azerbaijani language consists of identifying the two types of aesthetic assessment: emotional and rational.

METHODS OF NOMINATION AND WORD FORMATION FOR TRADITIONAL CLOTHING IN THE EVEN LANGUAGE

Posted in 2020, Issue № 12(102) December 2020, PHILOLOGY | 0 comments

The article for the first time discusses the ways of nomination (naming) and word formation of clothing names in the Even language. Linguists interpret primary nominations (unmotivated) (pervichnye nemotivirovannye nominatsii) as an original language denotation [3], [4], [5]. The analysis of the clothing-denoting vocabulary allowed for identifying 4 groups of unmotivated words and non-derivatives of the primary nomination, which are the words that are unmotivated and do not break down into morphemes and 12 groups of motivated nominations. The study illustrates the motivational grounds for the Even clothing nominations and provides their description. The analysis of motivated nominations demonstrates that in the act of nomination, the cognizing subject selects a number of features or one single feature in the named subject, which, as a rule, are taken as the basis of naming.
