    Experience in lexicographic activity of the Faculty of Philology in creation and inclusion of dictionaries in the learning process of schools and higher education institutions in the Republic of Adyghea: regional aspect

    This paper sheds light on experience in lexicographic activity of the Faculty of Philology of the Adyghe State University developed in the course of creation and inclusion of dictionaries in the learning process of schools and higher education institutions in the multiethnic region – the Republic of Adyghea. We analyze the printing editions created on the basis of this faculty by the staff of Departments of Russian Language and Linguistics. These editions include an obligatory regional component to form tolerance in historical and cultural community of the different ethnoses living in the North Caucasus. Similar dictionaries, undoubtedly, create favorable conditions for further cultural dialogue in Russian as the language binding all ethnoses and mentalities in the region.

    National and cultural features of the speech as means to transform the meaning of statement

    The paper shows the role of extralinguistic factors in changing the meaning of the text. The most typical extralinguistic factors influencing the understanding and interpretation of the text by the reader are identified. Those are sociolinguistic, etiquette, national and cultural. The method of the transformational analysis has allowed the authors to reveal statements with the sense changing at will of the author, as well as wrong cases of creation of the speech. The conclusion is drawn that national and cultural features of the speech of the addressee and addressant play the great role in change of the meaning of the statement. Extra language factors are a necessary prerequisite for adequate understanding of the statement. The explication of background knowledge at perception of the text promotes the best understanding of traditional, national and sociocultural peculiarities of language.

    Concept «heroine»: problem of the terminological status

    Mutual correlations of the terms «concept», «artistic image» and «art concept» are identified and analyzed in coordinates of modern cognitive linguistics and cultural linguistics. The data obtained within the presented scientific research based on studying numerous domestic and foreign authoritative sources on the terminological status of the concept «heroine» promote a research of multilevel interrelations of lexical units and categories of culture. The theoretical importance of the obtained results lies in systematization of approaches to study a concept which is based on examination of the relations of the logical information provided by conceptual language units and ethnocultural context. Also researches within this approach are focused on identification of culturally marked concepts as a part of various ethnospheres of concepts; and, moreover, on comparison of representation of separate fragments of reality in coordinates of different cultures in the context of action of a complex of ethnocultural factors. Such approach allows studying concepts in terms of their verbalization that focuses attention on their conceptual - language character. The obtained data are of particular importance as can be successfully applied to art concept examination as author’s embodiment of universal, ethnocultural and individual meanings within the last of the specified approaches. As the analysis has shown, the art concept can enter difficult correlations with an artistic image, and in this regard it is possible to assume possible classifications of representants of the concept «heroine» in fiction texts.

    Criterial appraisals and their lingual representation

    The paper deals with the criterial appraisal types and lexical means of their representation in Russian speech. The author used different modern Russian explanatory dictionaries and data of “National Corps of Russian Language” in the Internet as the sources of the factual material. For the analysis of the factual material the method of definitional semantic description with the elements of the field and component analyses was used. As a result, the existence of special type of criterial appraisals where different stereotypic representations of people were used as evaluation criteria has been proved. Adjectives expressing appraisals of such type in the Russian speech are revealed and described. Results of the work prove a principal difference of criterial appraisals from appraisals of relational character, consisting in the positive or negative emotional, desiderative, deiktic or value attitude of the subject of appraisal to the evaluated object.

    Representation of an interferema at bilateral bilingualism

    An attempt is undertaken to allocate interferemas and to describe them in the conditions of bilingualism of the Adyghe and another nation. In the Adyghe speech of Russians-bilinguals a unit of measure of an interference is the interferema (simple, complicated, of different levels, syncretic and multiple). At allocation of interferemas attention was paid to sound compliances and discrepancies in the contacting languages. Written and dictation records of the bilinguals knowing the Adyghe language have served as material. The sociolinguistic analysis of phonetic-phonologic level has revealed various extents of knowledge of the Adyghe language, existence of transitional forms of interference. Systematization and classification is carried out of levels of the bilateral bilingualism which is based on interferemas, functioning in the Adyghe speech of the Russians. The authors underline that in the Russian society there is a need to understand and develop a new philosophy of education in the new millennium, in particular – philological. The expected tolerant relations in society depend on the purposes which will be defined for itself by the Adyghe philological education. It has been established that the nature of emergence of interference is caused by various reasons. The research of an ethnolanguage situation in the region in aspect of formation of bilateral bilingualism is necessary since the educational effect in society will be more extensive and productive.

    Phraseological units with Latin components in modern French

    An analysis is made of interaction of the historical and semantic factors which have caused a national originality and laid the foundation of French modern phraseology. The authors study structural, semantic and functional features of phraseological units with Latin components during development and formation of national language. The theoretical importance of this research based on the analysis of phraseological units with Latin components is defined by the fact that French has inherited the greatest part of the lexical fund from Latin and develops on a national basis from an early stage of language formation. Cognitive and linguoculturological approaches represent methodological base of consideration of lexical material since images of primordially French phraseological units belong to the most various spheres of material culture and public life of people. In the course of the analysis it has been revealed that phonetic transformations in combination with other factors participate in formation and semantic development of phraseological units. However, semantic transformations which can lead to loss of own meaning of components and development of the new one are the major factor. Formation and development of phraseological fund is defined, in our opinion, as one of means of cultivation and improvement of the French national language. Data obtained during the research can be applied in learning language which has inherited the greatest part of the lexical fund from Latin.

    Communicative strategy: prerequisites of functioning

    This study deals with communicative strategy as the communicative behavior reflecting actions, motives, requirements and desires of the language personality in the form of verbal and nonverbal means of expression. Authors show that it is just interest which induces the person to influence the interlocutor to achieve goals and that it is just in consciousness of the person that the communicative strategy is carried out. It is for the first time the main characteristics of communicative strategy are generalized. In order to describe formation of communicative prerequisites, G.P. Grays’s principle of cooperation, necessary for this position, is considered. Realization of common objectives of communication defines their choice as means of achievement of these purposes. Communicative strategy represents attempt of interlocutors to find mutual understanding in semantic loading of any situation; at the same time the purpose of speaking is the report of the main sense. The obtained data can be successfully applied in the analysis of communicative strategy of text material. It has been established that communicative strategy represents a complex of the speech actions directed to achievement of the communicative purpose, and prerequisites of studying this concept are the communicative, cognitive, linguistic, sociological and psychological, rhetorical and esthetic ones.

    Case statement VS popular expression: the ontologic status in a modern linguistic paradigm

    Winged expressions are discussed in comparison to case statements. Peculiarities of the national picture of the world and, as a consequence, linguistic culture, are represented, in particular, through popular expressions as markers of case phenomena. The aim of the paper is to identify and describe features that define the ontological status of winged expressions and case expressions in cognitive and cultural linguistics. Scientific novelty of this publication is in the comprehensive analysis of case phenomena, in particular, case statements in their relation to the popular expressions that provides the multicoordinate evidence of put forward theses in terms of inclusion of the results obtained in the paradigms of the theory of precedent, pragmalinguistic and phraseology. Research methodology is defined by its object and subject: a case and popular expressions are examined through the identification of integral and differential characteristics from the standpoint of cognitive, pragmalinguistic and cultural approaches. Semantics and form of case statements allows identification of two main types: with «surface» meaning and preserving the indivisibility of the «surface» and «deep» meanings, which in turn determines integral and differential signs of case statements and aphorisms. The work contributes to the development of the theory of language, pragmalinguistics, linguoculturology, and theoretical knowledge, deepening ideas about the case phenomena, their types, the cognitive-semantic capacities and functions, winged expressions as markers of the case phenomena and phraseological units at the same time. The possibility of utilizing the obtained results in the practice of teaching courses on the theory of language, cultural linguistics, intercultural communication, issues of cognitive linguistics and phraseology determines the practical value of this research.

    Expressive means and stylistic devices of creating artistic image in A.Kh. Mukozhev’s poetic works

    The most important expressive means and stylistic devices forming an artistic image in the Kabardian poetic text are first considered on the material of the poetic works of one of the best Circassian masters of the artistic word A.Kh. Mukozhev. A particular attention is paid to the system-linguistic means of achieving expressiveness, primarily at the lexical-semantic level most frequently used in the works of the Circassian poetry. The most productive of the lexical and semantic means of creating an expressive coloring of words and expressions is the associative-figurative reinterpretation of meanings, which is based on tropes, among which the most important are metaphor, metonymy, simile, which A.Kh. Mukozhev used very skillfully. The study shows that the so-called «author’s phraseological units», epithets, metonymy, oxymoron, antithesis, periphrasis, hyperbole, etc. are also used to create a vivid, realistic artistic image in the poet’s works. There are separate poetic works, representing a sustained metaphor («Life is an Old Train», «Sated and Starving», etc.). The results of the work can be used in courses on expressive lexicology, expressive syntax, text linguistics and stylistics of the Circassian languages.

    Emotion as a concept dominant (based on Anna Gavalda’s novel “Je l’aimais”)

    In this article we study peculiarities of realization of emotions in the text. The aim of the research is to study the parameters of the realization of emotional concept “love” in Anna Gavalda’s novel “Je l’aimais”. The analysis of the theoretical and practical background has shown that the literary text as a complex semantic space embodies plural semantic fields, the dominant units of which are concepts. The dominant text emotions are realized as emotional concepts, the analysis of which contributes to revelation of the semantic side of a text, to the author’s conceptual field determination, which embodies the author’s individual stylistic traits. The undertaken study has shown the following results: the units of the concept realization can be represented by nouns, adjectives, verbs, which denominate emotional concept or describe it indirectly. Emotions can be expressed by describing emotional reactions or states, associated to approved feelings. The efficient way of the demonstration of emotions is emotional metaphor, which contributes imagery to the text and activates the reader’s imagination. In conclusion it is argued that the most complete revelation of the literary text dominant emotions can be accomplished by its basic concepts study, which embodies semantic, syntactic and pragmatic dimensions, in the unity of which the semantic diversity of the text is implemented.

    The cognitive semantic and linguoculturological analysis of speech behavior and speech communication (according to the Arabic paroemias)

    An analysis is made of speech communication aspects in the Arabic proverbs, sayings and cliched statements which reflect the Arab mentality and the Arab culture of language. The author defines what assessment, obvious or hidden, is given to the specified aspects and which language techniques are applied in them most frequently. The term «paroemia» is understood widely as including proverbs, sayings, phraseological units, language clichés and aphorisms. Dwelling upon views of a number of modern scientists and upon the Arab linguistic tradition such language units are united in the generalizing category of «masalas». Application of the cognitive, semantic and linguocultural analysis has made it possible to state that a direct or implicit assessment to various aspects and types of speech behavior is given in the Arabic paroemias. Paroemias teach to skillfully handle language to avoid the dangers and misunderstanding which are concealed in the inept addressing it. Oppositions, comparisons, metaphors, techniques of personification and objectification of language and allegorical meaning are applied in many groups of sayings about various aspects of the language and speech. Materials can be useful to paremiology, cultural linguistics, comparative linguistics, theory of translation, as well as in learning the Arabic language.

    Characteristic features of derivational compounds in the Hattian language: linguo-cognitive aspect

    The article deals with logical-conceptual and derivational structure of the Hattian composites. The objective of the study is to reveal primary words that determine stability of the language and its national specificity. The main method of investigation is comparative- historical. While analyzing Hattian composites we took into consideration regular sound correspondences of related Hattian, Abkhaz and Adyghe words with identical or close meaning. Hattian words are given in Latin transliteration, their Abkhaz-Adyghe match – in the Cyrillic alphabet. Comparison of the components of the Hattian composites with identical Abkhaz-Adyghe lexical units made it possible to reveal their coincidence and to confirm affinity of the Hattian and Abkhaz-Adyghe languages and their origin from the same language source. The results of the investigation may be used for writing the history of the Abkhaz-Adyghe languages.

    The adjective phrase-semantic group «Age of the Person» in Russian and French languages

    An analysis is made of the adjective phrase-semantic group «age of the person» in modern Russian in comparison with features of this group in French. The research goal is to examine the semantic structure of this group of phraseological units as a part of a macrogroup «a physical condition of the person». Systematization in the Russian and French languages of the phrase-semantic group «age of the person» which is subdivided into synonymic blocks with additional shades of the meaning is result of this research. The analysis of the presented linguistic material leans on comparative and linguoculturological methods of studying languages and makes it possible to come to conclusion that this phrase-semantic group in the Russian and French languages is filled not only with a great number of analogies, but also with differences in structure and use of these units, in shades of their meanings, in their connotation and internal form. Thus, it is possible to draw a conclusion that the Russian phrasemes, unlike French, more definitely classify characteristics of people according to antonymic sign «young» – «old».

    Lexicographic database of the Circassian languages: basic principles of creation

    Problems of preservation of the native language in the conditions of globalization are considered. The relevance is caused by the current state of the Circassian languages (Adyghe and Kabardino-Circassian) and by absence of system measures for their preservation and development both in the historical homeland and in the Adyghe diaspora. The purpose of this paper is to reason a need of application of innovative methods in preservation and promoting the Adyghe language. One of the alternate solutions is creation of the generally available electronic database in the form of the uniform Internet portal where the Adyghe lexicon will be accumulated in a new format of the industry-specific terminological electronic encyclopedic glossary. The basis of the electronic dictionary will encompass the lexical materials which are saved up so far in the Adyghe science, researches and different types of dictionaries. Formation of the glossary, structured not in alphabetical order, but by spheres of activity of the person, is carried out by method of the structurally functional analysis. The translation of the glossary into languages of the countries where the Adyghes live is supposed. The sample of structuring the glossary using the example of a concept «shkhe» (a head) is attached. Theoretical reasons and empirical materials of this research can be useful to authors of dictionaries and manuals for teaching not only the Adyghe language, but also other Caucasian languages. It is stated as a result that in the modern world language of the small people which are in a status of dispersible resettlement in a number of the states can survive only under condition of competitiveness in information community and compliance to the level of development of technological innovations.

    Anti-hero in Junior Circassian Epic

    The paper describes the types of anti-heroes, epic characters of the Adyghe folklore which have not previously received sufficient attention in folklore. Despite this, they play an important role in the oral narrative. It is established that the genesis of the artistic image, which received its greatest development in the literature of the 20th century, points to ancient folklore motifs. The image of the anti-hero complicates the epic story, influences the evolution of narrative art and enriches the palette of artistic images. This is manifested in historical and heroic tales and songs with sufficient clarity. The variety of specific embodiment of anti-hero in songs and legends about different heroes is investigated. The comparative - typological method and the retrospective analysis help to systematize folklore forms and to formulate their originality and national peculiarities.

    The paper discusses the contents, subject and art features of the Adyghe poem in the chronological framework of the 1960s through the beginning of the 1990s. The authors identify the genre sources, influence of motives and poetics of the Nart epos, folk legends, fairy tales and stories. They also focus on sharpening of problematical character in A. Gadagatl, M. Paranuk, A. Evtykh, I. Mashbash, Kh. Beretar, N. Kuyek and N. Bagov’s works, caused by cultural and historical changes in society. Classification of the national poem is carried out by genre and thematic features – the poem on folklore material, the historical poem and the poem on a historical subject, the poem about war and the poem on a modern subject. Enrichment and development of a genre of the poem due to statement of more large-scale subjects, use of the lyrical basis and drama element are noted. Application in the analysis of comparative and typological methods promotes formulation of conclusions about the lines of a new «modern» stage of national poetry which have reflected the general laws of national literature.

    Problems of moral antagonism in Yu. Shidov’s prose (as shown by the story «Dinner for Two»)

    One of the important tasks of the author of this article was the need to identify the most important features of the phenomenon of the Adyghe Russian-language literature using an example of the analysis of the story «Dinner for Two» by the contemporary Circassian writer Yu. Shidov. Such a study seems especially relevant at the moment, as the Russian-language literature of the peoples of the North Caucasus is one of the most dynamically developing and least developed areas. The Adyghe literature of the post-Soviet period is marked not only by combining several types of literary genres, but also by different spheres of arts. In particular, the combination of literature and game cinema gains development as ways of art expression close to each other. Thus, synthetic forms of art and literature are formed. The newly-emerged term “literary cinematography” is used to reflect the «visibility» of a work of art or the verbal designation of literary devices in it. The tendency towards neomythologism, which is observed in the Adyghe literature in the second half of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st century, is especially subject to this feature. Perhaps, it is explained by the general property of neo-mythological art, which was expressed in the desire for artistic synthesis of diverse and multidirectional traditions. All these aspirations were originally embodied in the beginning of the twentieth century in the cinema. The article reflects the features of the author’s idiostyle, the genre specificity of Shidov. The two most important aspects in the writer’s work - individual and sociopolitical - are in indissoluble unity. The author uses image-symbols, which strengthen the general tonality, exacerbate the dramatic nature of the narrative. The author’s main thematic problematic is the moral crisis, which is largely due to the transitional historical period of the 1990s. The results obtained will be necessary steps for further studies of the creativity of contemporary Russian-speaking Adyghe writers.

    Genre features of the Olga Slavnikova’s novel «2017»

    This paper discusses features of a plot of the novel and interprets its images and motives. An analysis is made of the principles of the organization of the narration and an art and composite system of the work which considerably distinguish it against the background of the author’s works of previous years. The new art views of the writer realized in the considered novel are noted. Important distinctive feature of the work is combination of various specific basics. Lines of genre heterogeneity of the text are identified, including: elements of the novel anti-Utopia, novel myth, psychological and adventure novels. Contamination affects all levels of work structure, both formal and contextual. The multifaceted complex of problems is raised in the work: social, psychological and philosophical. The conclusion is drawn that the socio-historical situation in the book written by the modern writer is only a background against which deep problems of separately taken personality become aggravated. In work, categories of Life, Destiny, Time and Death, traditional for the writer’s prose, are subjected to interpretation. Such analysis of the work allows consideration of Slavnikova’s art prose, on the one hand, as an integral part of a modern literary context and, on the other hand, it highlights characteristic style features of author’s identity.
