Ethno-Linguistic Mechanisms of Sense Formation

Authors : Nikolay F. Alefirenko, Julietta V. Lagodenko, Andrey I. Papkov and Elena G. Ozerova

Abstract: The study presents the result of theoretical study that found that the cultural significance of the meaning is the product of the value and evaluative interpretation of discursively-denotative situation. The sense formation is carried out by the synergetic interaction of several extra-linguistic factors related to the representation of the designated denotative situation. The sense formation is implemented on subconscious, rational and superconscious levels of ethno-linguistic consciousness. The particular emphasis is placed on the importance of cultural significance of signs of indirect nomination which are based on the cognitive categories that combine universal and idioethnic generalization reflected in the consciousness of reality, real and mental (possible) worlds. The mechanism of linguistic expressions cannot be the same for all languages. In connection with it the difference in linguistic worldview and lack of naming units for definite subjects and phenomena, existing in one culture and not having analogies in the other, leads to contradictions in understanding. In modern linguistics, mutual connection between language and culture rises to no doubt.
