METAPHORICAL IMAGE OF PLAY A musical instrument in THE LIGHT OF STRUCTURAL TYPOLOGY OF CONCEPTS

Abstract

The article is devoted to the consideration of the metaphorical image of play a musical instrument in its relation to the structural types of concepts. The proposition is one of the main principles of the deployment of the image. It presupposes the reflection of the typical scheme of play a musical instrument in these metaphors. Typical scheme of play a musical instrument consists of such components as the playing subject, his actions (the play), the instrument and the perceiving subject. The words which name these components are the representatives of the image of play a musical instrument. Comprehension of the role of each component in the typical scheme determines the direction of the semantic development of the image. The image can also be represented as the script and the frame. When the temporary aspect of the deployment of the proposition is actualized, the image realizes the potentialities of the script. When the proposition is presented in the aspect of relation of the whole and its parts, this image can be considered as the frame. The image of play a musical instrument is correlated with the represent, because these metaphors contain information received by the senses. In this case the emphasis from the typical scheme shifts toward his visual or auditive perception. Describing abstract phenomena, these metaphors combine different types of conceptualized information about the object and correspond to the gestalt. In these contexts the understanding of the propositional scheme of the process, its development in time, visual and auditory perception, etc., are important for the formation of the image. So, the image of play a musical instrument can be correlated with various structural types of concepts. And it confirms the ability of the metaphorical image-concept to differently reflection of information on the meaningful denotate.
