SOME ENGLISH AND BULGARIAN ADJECTIVE-NOUN CONSTRUCTIONS BASED ON CONCEPTUALISED PERCEPTUAL EXPERIENCE
MetadataShow full item record
This paper examines the mechanisms involved in the semantics of some A + N constructions in English and Bulgarian, with a focus on image schemas as mental representations of different kinds of perceptual experience. Examples from different areas of specialised language have been analysed within the framework of cognitive linguistics. The comparative study has led to the identification of English-Bulgarian pairs of constructions which instantiate similar schemas. The results can be used to aid translation work in the LSP fields investigated.
