Color Names as Psycholinguistic Codes of Creation of the World of Ethnos

Keywords: color designation, symbol, consciousness, coding of information, linguistic picture of the world.


Scientific observations of color names, which the author considers as one of the universal codes of the world, show the development of a system of color symbols in the direction of quantitative growth, therefore, there is a tendency to use colorants that can reflect color nuances. On the example of color names of light blue shades – blue, cyan, celestial – the author of the proposed research aims to follow the relationship between the semantic structure of the latter, the properties of natural color signals and their images in the minds of Ukrainians and ways of language coding of extraverbal information in their content as components of the linguistic picture of the world of representatives of Ukrainian culture.
