Selected Lexical-Semantic Groups (Colour Terms, Kinship Terms)

Hill, Peter

Description

CTs contrast with stylistically or collocationally restricted CTs, e.g. Ru krasnyj �red� vs. bagrjanyj or rumjanyj. Second-order CTs are understood to be hyponyms of basic CTs (e.g. Ru alyj / krasnyj). Nuances can be expressed by combining adjectives: Ru koričnevato-�eltyj �brownish-yellow�. The Sl languages can form new CTs very easily, e.g. Ru pesočnyj �sand-coloured� < pesok �sand�. CTs in Sl languages can be expressed also as verbs: *bělěti �to appear white, to be white�. CTs are often...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractCTs contrast with stylistically or collocationally restricted CTs, e.g. Ru krasnyj �red� vs. bagrjanyj or rumjanyj. Second-order CTs are understood to be hyponyms of basic CTs (e.g. Ru alyj / krasnyj). Nuances can be expressed by combining adjectives: Ru koričnevato-�eltyj �brownish-yellow�. The Sl languages can form new CTs very easily, e.g. Ru pesočnyj �sand-coloured� < pesok �sand�. CTs in Sl languages can be expressed also as verbs: *bělěti �to appear white, to be white�. CTs are often borrowed: Bg pemben and morav < Tk, oran�ev and rozov < Ru. According to Berlin and Kay, CSl would be a stage-IV language, with apparently no CSl CT for BLUE. Collocationally restricted CTs are predicated of people�s eyes, hair or complexion or of animals� coats, especially those of horses and cows: Pol bułany �dun; sorrel�, cisawy �chestnut�, gniady �bay�. Kinship is a biological category but, unlike other animals, human beings consciously and explicitly use the categories of kinship to define social relationships. CSl possesses a complicated terminology of kinship. In agricultural societies it was imperative to distinguish patrilineal from matrilineal relatives: the husband�s relatives were important but not the wife�s. Some Sl languages retain many CSl KTs, while others, such as Ru, have lost most of them. CTs and KTs occur in a host of metaphorical uses
