Abstract

The article is devoted to the representation of the “color” and “light” perception modes as components of the world around. Being one of the components of the outer world situations the given perception attributes provide the perception and contribute to the formation of information mentality basis, the principle of a person and outer world interaction. As most cognitive linguistic theories insist on an exclusive role of the sensuous visual world for the whole language structure, the significance of color and light perception for the formation of the linguistic world image is evident. Its special role in cognition of the world around, which is carried out by means of creating the cognitive images of reality and situations in interaction, is unquestionable. Vocabulary of perception directly reflects sensual experience and is closely connected with the emotional side of human activity. Light marking and color naming are demonstrative examples of subjective estimation expression of an object by a person, of value formation system. A special attention is given to the close connection of color images and symbols of light. They are regarded as dominant interrelation of a language and sight as one of the main factors, which orientate a person in the world. All color dominants have traditional symbolic interpretation. Representation of the perception image occurs on the basis of cognitive metaphorical experience. There is a clear distinction between language perception and image perception as a consequence of the language metaphorization of the symbols of light. The great associative potential of color marking semantics is shown, the developing of which is determined by syntactical and lexical combinability of lexico-semantic variations of attributive constructions and actualization of their symbolical meanings. On the basis of spectacular examples from fiction books, the authors demonstrate the significance of color and light images for the Russian linguistic consciousness while evaluating moral and immoral conduct.
