AN ARTISTIC IMAGE OF A CHARACTER AS A FUNDAMENTAL CATEGORY OF LITERATURE STUDIES (ACCORDING TO THE NOVEL BY ANATOLY FED “ON THE WAY”)
The study of the functional and stylistic peculiarities of anthroponomy in a literary text is one of the most important problems not only in modern Ukrainian onomastics, but also one of the aspects of studying the author’s view in a literary text, where character nominations perform functions that go beyond the categorical grammatical meaning of these classes of words, and therefore, participate in the formation of the semantic aspect of the text. We will follow the major milestones in the history of the study of anthroponomy in linguistics, examine the etymology of some personal names, consider some of the meanings of names that stand as stylistic and expressive means in prose, and systematize onomastic material of the work by A. Fed.
Cultural studies scholars and fine art experts often analyze metaphors. In particular, they study metaphors in fiction. They regard metaphors as literary language phenomenon from the point of literary criticism and linguistics. They study etymological concept of metaphors and their connection to myths. It seems appropriate to consider the metaphor through the prism of cognitive linguistics. Cognitive theory is the study of mental information that is information stored in the mental lexicon in the brain that makes the basis of human consciousness. In modern linguistics there is a tendency to consider the word as a complex structure and a multi-layer complex.
The topicality of the research is substantiated by the increased interest in the study of anthroponomy in terms of language and culture communication. All proper names have meaning of objectivity, that is the part of their contents (denotation) is a kind of notification of the existence of an object (or the essence of what we envision as an object). The most proper names denote a class of objects, including one object stands out. Proper names, denoting an individual object, fix in their meaning a definite deal to call this object in a definite way.
