Nikolay Alefirenko

DOI: 10.18355/XL.2015.08.03.2-18

The article deals with the problem of verbalization of culturally marked products of verbal thinking: ethno-cultural consciousness as a system of extralinguistic categories (cognitive ones, such as prototypes, patterns, images and domains; and non-cognitive ones, such as feelings, emotions, will etc.). Particular attention is given to those elements of culture (values, estimates and semantic interpretation), which have acquired the status of ethno-cultural stereotype.

Key words 
Ethno-cultural consciousness, image, stereotype, domain, semantics, denotation, connotation
