Abstract. The article is devoted to the analysis of carnivalization as one of the main mechanisms for metaphors creation in childrens poetry in the cognitive aspect. The paper uses a relatively little-known, but promising method for analysing metaphors in language and text using semantic bases. The main objectives of the work are the classification and analysis of the contexts for carnivalization use in the poems of the modern American poets about school. As a result of the study, the author comes to the conclusion that in childrens poetry, in addition to the purely aesthetic function, the use of the metaphors based on the carnivalization principle performs didactic, psychotherapeutic and socializing functions.
Key words and phrases: , , , , , , , English-language poetry, modern childrens poetry, carnivalization, poems about school, metaphor, semantic base, cognitive theory of metaphor.
