ФИО студента: Elena Benkovich

Руководитель: Andrei Botchkarev

Кампус/факультет: Faculty of Humanities (Nizhny Novgorod)

Программа: Fundamental and Applied Linguistics (Bachelor)

Год защиты: 2020

The current study offers a comparative corpus analysis of words: Rus. skuka and Eng. boredom. The research material is contexts from the National Corps of the Russian Language and the British National Corps of the English Language. The linguistic specificity of the analyzed words can be judged by a predisposition to a specific use, by the ability to certain rethinking and transformations, as well as by subject-conceptual relationships, confirmed by various use cases, and by a propositional model built on a lot of certified uses. This study allows you to partially reconstruct Russian and British language pictures, and also serves as a source of information for such branches of linguistics as intercultural communication and linguoculturology.
