Abstract:   (3792 Views)
The relevance of this work lies in the increasing interest of researchers of folklore to the genre of lullaby.  The purpose of the work is to study the dominant concepts of English lullabies in the linguocultural aspect.  The scientific novelty of the study is that to achieve its goal, a theoretical and contextual analysis of the dominant concepts of English lullabies, presented in authentic folklore texts, was used.  The practical significance of the work lies in the fact that the basic provisions and materials can be used in lectures on comparative linguistics, cognitive linguistics and the lexicology of the English language in the preparation of translators in Russian universities and in foreign language departments.  As a result of theoretical and contextual analyzes of English lullaby songs, twelve dominant concepts were examined, considered in the linguocultural aspect.  The most common concept is "child".  As a result, it was concluded that the concept is a conditional mental unit, which provides invaluable assistance in the integrated study of the English language, consciousness and interculture.  In the linguocultural aspect, the concept is a mental projection of cultural elements in the consciousness of the individual and society and is objectified in language and speech.
