THE CONCEPT OF "WOLF" IN ENGLISH AND UZBEK LANGUAGE

Description

Abstract: The current article attempts to analyze the concept of “wolf” and its conceptualizations by native Uzbek people through the study of Uzbek idioms, set expressions, proverbs, sayings, and quotations with this component. The objective was to conduct the conceptual analysis in order to discern figurative-associative and evaluative meaning of the concept “wolf”. By presenting the cognitive model of this concept in the linguistic consciousness of the Uzbeks, its conceptualization is demonstrated, the associative nature of the concept “wolf” and its universal, ideological and ethno cultural features are manifested. It was found that the concept “wolf” has various conceptualizations, reflecting the Uzbeks’ naive national-linguistic picture of the world and evokes interpretations with positive and negative connotations as well.
