LEXICAL MEANS OF CONCEPTUALIZATION OF TIME IN THE ONTOGENESIS OF BULGARIAN

Abstract: The present article focuses on the lexical means of conceptualisation of the category of time by Bulgarian pre-school children. The empirical data about this process are obtained through a specially designed psychological experiment with 90 children in the age range of 3 to 6 years old, and recordings of spontaneous speech produced by 5 Bulgarian children. In addition, the study is based on the analysis of free verbal associations of the words morning and night made by 100 5/6-year-old children, which sheds more light on the intuition-based model of the time category in Bulgarian pre-school children's language (see Dictionary of Associations in (Popova, 2000: 106-117)). The analyzed data show the diffuse character of children’s perception of time which is still amorphous and in this respect is quite distant from the intuitive model of a naïve adult native speaker.

The article discusses iconic representations of speech as online performance in the sphere of standard, substandard and nonstandard in contemporary Bulgarian pronunciation, signaled by a combination of different prosodic features manifested in specific aural images.
