ENGLISH LINGUISTIC AND CULTURAL CONCEPTS OF NEGATIVE EMOTIONS («FEAR» - «TERROR»)

Abstract

The concepts of negative emotions («fear» - «terror») are studied in the article from a cognitive perspective. The characteristics of standard situations in which emotions appear are taken into consideration, and a scenario of a particular emotional state is created on this basis. Further by method of component analysis and also by method of definition analysis, the semantics of words which designate linguistic and cultural concepts, and concrete examples of linguistic usage of these words are given.
