METAPHORICAL MODELS OF VALUE AND ACTIVITY IN CREATING A SYSTEM OF VALUE CONCEPTS IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

The evaluative interpretation of the activity with the consequent speech explication of such an interpretation in the form of evaluative statements demands special pliable mechanisms of adopting lexical and syntactical units to the situation of evaluative qualification. Such mechanisms are mostly actualized in the form of metaphorical interpretations. The main types of metaphorical models of the surrounding world value interpretation within the Anglo-Saxon language world-picture ave been represented in this investigation. Such general models including more specific ones used to describe different situations of evaluation are viewing the activity in the terms of motion or itinerary, in the form of a living organism (plants, animals and human beings), as the means of preserving or destruction of the present state of things, as the perception of the surrounding reality by senses. These models of the metaphorical value interpretations are opened both to their common interaction and the interaction with the value conceptual domains due to their pliable structuring, that is why they may be subjected to their variations according to the changes in the temporal and social conditions for the language development.
