Concept "Weapon" in the Anglo-Saxon Poem "Judith"

Tatarkina Svetlana Mikhailovna
Pushkin Leningrad State University, St. Petersburg


Submitted: 23.12.2019.
Abstract. The article examines the lexical units representing the concept "weapon" of the Anglo-Saxon period. Using the structural-semantic and historical-etymological analysis method, the author identifies and describes types of attack weapon and defensive weapon. Formation of these conceptions and their evolution in the language are traced. The findings justify the thesis that object nomination was based on metonymic transfer. It testifies to the dominance of mythological consciousness, figurativeness and diffuseness of archaic thinking. The research findings promote deeper understanding of the Anglo-Saxon historical worldview.
Key words and phrases: англосаксонский, эволюция значения, номинация, концепт, violence (насилие), языковая картина мира, семантический компонент, репрезентация значения, Anglo-Saxon, evolution of meaning, nomination, concept, violence, linguistic worldview, semantic component, meaning representation.
