Abstract

In the article, based on the linguistic and stylistic analysis of the artistic texts of I. S. Nechuy-Levytsky, the metaphorical model of the human inner world is explored. Typical metaphorical structures are found, in which the thoughts, dreams, feelings, feelings conceptual for linguistic thinking are grouped around dynamic signs with the seeds of 'movement', 'moving'.
Such structures reflect the principle of anthropomorphism, which is indicative to the writer’s idiom, that is, the animation, the attribution of the beings’ properties of abstract names – attributes of the intellectual sphere of human life.
The fixed types of metaphorical structures are most often based on the interaction of the semantic complex "the human inner world" with the names of the semantic complexes "nature", "concrete objects". The dominant basic models that underlie the metaphorization of concepts to denote the inner world of a person are distinguished: bird→thought, water→thought, bird→dream, specific objects → thought.
The study of the metaphorization conceptual for linguistic thinking of I. S. Nechuy-Levytsky points to the entry of these lexemes into the associative lexical-semantic field "thought", which names the human thinking activity.
The common vocabulary focuses on the figurative use of dynamic features that metaphorize words-images of thought, dream, feeling. In the texts under study, common metaphors acquire additional connotations through the spread of spatial and temporal concepts. The fixed metaphors show a tendency to complicate their subordinate comparative sentences, to refine the semantics of the verb-predicate by a comparative reverse.
