Representation of spatial references in Yakut and Kazakh phraseology

Svetlana Mitrofanovna Prokopieva, Vladimir Dmitrijevich Monastyrev, Polina Pavlovna Shestakova


Semantic heterogeneity of phraseological units based on the axiological view of the world is determined by both figurative meaning of the key component of a phraseological unit and the global reinterpretation of the original free word combination. The purpose of the study is to contrast the representation of spatial references in Yakut and Kazakh phraseological units. The Yakut and Kazakh phraseological units involving a spatial component revealed the following spatial groups: object’s location in a horizontal or vertical plane, object’s location in relation to other objects, object’s location in the middle or among other objects, movement and displacement in space. The general method of research is deductive-inductive. The linguistic method used is the comparative method that allow for obtaining data on universal and specific properties of phraseological units of the two languages. Also, the componential analysis and the method of phraseological identification were utilized. The research results might serve as a source for further investigations of Yakut-Kazakh relations in the field of comparative linguistics.
