Elizabeta Ralpovska: Linguistic metaphor and the names of colours

Abstract
 
Metaphor is a principal and primary lexical means by which the lexical-semantic group with the meaning colour develops and is enriched with new lexical units. The ability to language recording of the expressed diversity of the world that surrounds man lies in the associative and analogical connection between different concepts and objects with impressively attractive and original colour and language elements that act as carriers of the property colour. The similarity between the concept and its language identifier is at the extent to absoluteness. Our interest will be directed towards discovering such absoluteness among international words that are commonly accepted names of colours.
