Pioneer as a Role Model in Pioneer’s Newspapers of the Soviet Times

Student: Mariia Chebkasova

Supervisor: Boris Gasparov

Faculty: School of Arts and Humanities

Educational Programme: Philology (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2020

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the cognitive metaphor in the political language of the children's Soviet Newspapers. The main issue is to trace the changes in these metaphors in relation to the era: pre-war years, post-war, and after the death of Stalin. Also, I'm going to find out whether there are such metaphorical concepts in children's sources that are not present in adult periodicals. Based on this analysis, assumptions will be made about how they constructed the personality of the pioneer in different epochs and whether there are such metaphors that were used exclusively in children's periodicals. The relevance of this work is determined by the opportunity to look at cognitive metaphors in children's periodicals, to understand how these cognitive metaphors influenced the formation of the child as an ideal Soviet citizen.
