ACHROMATIC COLOURS IN THE ENGLISH PHRASEOLOGICAL UNITS AND VARIANTS OF THEIR TRANSLATION

Abakumova Irina Anatol'evna
Southern Federal University (Rostov-on-Don)


Abstract. The article deals with English proverbs, sayings and idioms involving black and white colours. Proverbs with the colour component are analyzed in the linguistic-cultural aspect. The article presents the analysis of their associative fields and various versions of translation. The author concludes that the meaning of achromatic colours in the Russian and English linguistic cultures is similar, and the majority of phraseological units is translated into Russian without the colour component, preserving an instructive meaning of expressions.
Key words and phrases: идиомы английского языка, лингвоэтнические расхождения, цветообозначение, этнокультурные особенности, idioms of the English language, linguistic-ethnic differences, colour naming, ethnocultural peculiarities
