Research topic: Perception of the cultural concept of wine in French, Italian, Spanish, English and Russian axiological world view based on contrastive analysis of paroemias
Annotation to the dissertation: The study focuses on the contrastive analysis of paroemias denoting cultural concept «wine» in French, Italian, Spanish, English and Russian axiological world view. It is determined that idiomatic expressions related to the abovementioned concept constitute an important source of cultural information for the interpretation of the worldview fixed in collective consciousness. Semantic features of paroemias, which are reviewed in comparison to each other, allow to reveal the peculiarities of cultural mentality and national character of the French, Italians, Spanish, English and Russians from the point of view of their attitude to wine as a cultural and historical phenomenon. It is defined that difficulties of interpretation as well as translation of phraseological units are caused by the differences in perception of this concept as well as the absence or presence of similar connotations. The lexemes related to the concept of wine in French, Italian, Spanish, English and Russian languages represent profound linguistic material that is worth being analyzed within the framework of intercultural communication, linguistics and cultural studies. The practical significance of the study is determined by the ability to apply its results to contrastive lexicography and elaborate theory and practice of various contrastive language studies.
