Abstract: The focus of this paper is on the ways the traditional initial and final formulaic lines of the folk tale genre are transformed in various literary fairy tale and fantasy texts. These formulas anchor and shape the reader’s perception of the written text as an oral narrative according to the genre tradition. The authors transform the stereotypic model by incorporating new information into it. The paper explores the effects of alienation from the prototype scheme of the fairy tale genre.

Abstract: The discoveries of cognitive science give us the opportunity to take a fresh look at the tradition of learning the vocabulary of foreign languages as we can consider all meanings of the word as a kind of academic text, the study of which can be arranged in the course of looking for internal relations of the whole set of the meanings of the word. The method suggested in the article can be called “semantisation of the word through the definition of a prototypical situation”

FORMATION OF LINGUISTIC AND COUNTRY STUDY COMPETENCE WHEN TEACHING A FOREIGN LANGUAGE AT THE TECHNICAL INSTITUTE                                                                                                                               

Abstract: Linguistic and country studies become an essential part in the process of foreign language learning because at present there is a necessity to teach not only language skills but also the culture of the country studied. The complexity of solving this problem is caused by the fact that the knowledge of foreign languages assumes not only the ability to speak properly but also mastering the particular cultural stereotypes. Teaching foreign languages on the basis of current country study materials contributes to the formation of linguistic country study competences. It widens the general horizon of students and helps motivate the further study of foreign languages.

SYMBOLIC FEATURES OF SOMATIC CONCEPTS                                                                                                    

Abstract: The article examines the symbolic features in the structure of somatic concepts as units of somatic code in Russian and English cultures. Alongside the language semantics, somatisms are characterized by cultural semantics of a certain symbolic significance. Regularly replacing cultural symbol in the discourse, somatisms as representatives of symbolic  meanings are symbols in themselves. The symbol is a product of human consciousness. Since ancient times, people have resorted to the symbolization of the world around them, thus, a symbol is a specific element of encoding the cultural space. The study is based on construction with somatic components collected from authoritative English and Russian dictionaries and national corpora of the Russian and English languages.

ROLE OF GREY COLOUR IN COLOR CLASSIFICATIONS                                                                                          

Abstract: Researchers haven't been able to pin down any universal classification system that will be able to predict how people will interpret and respond to the colours around them. This is because a person's culture, gender, age, emotional and mental state, specific experiences, mood - as well as the appearance and combination of the colours themselves - can all affect the reaction. As for the attitude to the grey colour, people of different cultures react to this colour in a different way. And this reaction varies in intensity from person to person.
