Motion as an Indicator of Emotion in Germanic and Slavic Languages
10
2017
The study is carried out across two related areas of linguistics – semantics and lexical typology. The work is aimed at detailed analysis of verbs and verbal constructions with the meaning of full or partial cessation of psychophysiological activities (further CoPA). The main method, taken in the study, is a distributive method that allows singling out general and specific features in semantics of the units. 3 Germanic and 3 Slavic languages are examined in the work. The verbs and verbal constructions under the study are formed into groups according to their inner forms. It is supposed that there should be a certain correlation between the inner form, manner, pattern of denoting the halt and genotype of the language. Moreover, the interrelation between the degree of analytism/synthetism in the language and the way lexemes and collocations with semantics of CoPA combine proper and figurative meanings is expected. The paper consists of the introduction, 2 chapters with a certain number of subsections and conclusion. The first chapter is devoted to diachronic changes in the given languages, while the second one describes processes in the semantic structure of the verbs and verbal constructions.
