Social Psychological Mechanisms of Acquiring Sociocultural Experience: The Hermeneutic Aspect

Larysa Zahrai
2017 Journal of Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University  
The interpretative mechanisms (semiotization, narrativization) make it possible to explain the formation of the individual's model of the world, which is, on the one hand, a representation of culture and  ...  , on the other, a reflection of the individual's subjective experience.  ...  Stereotypical, 'ready-made' schemas of self-perception, perception of others, and life in general narrow the space for self-experimentation, self-realization, self-expression, forecasting the future.  ...

Edward G. (Edward Gilman) Slingerland
2004 Philosophy East & West  
This should not surprise us, considering the claims of contemporary cognitive linguists that the metaphoric schemas making up the foundation of our abstract conceptual life are not arbitrarily created  ...  It will be argued that the contemporary theory of metaphor provides scholars with an exciting new theoretical grounding for the study of comparative thought, as well as a concrete methodology for undertaking  ...  us to expect a high degree of universality in basic metaphor schemas.  ...

A Cognitive View of "Pandemic Meditation" (A Mathematical Visual Poem)

Kazmier Maslanka
2022 Journal of Humanistic Mathematics  
Within the structure, the poetics are understood by the cross-mapping of numerous conceptual domains including visual, lexical, and mathematical.  ...  The intent of this paper is not to explain "Pandemic Meditation," for explanations of poetry serve only to kill it.  ...  This essay was written as a response to a request from Jesse Russell Brooks, Director of the Film and Video Poetry Society, Los Angeles, California.  ...

Abstracting grammar from social–cognitive foundations: A developmental sketch of learning

Paul Ibbotson
2011 Review of General Psychology  
Crucially important in this explanation will be the fact that humans possess a unique set of social-cognitive and social motivational-skills that allows language to happen.  ...  This review is a step in that direction, aiming to offer a more integrated account of the learning mechanisms that support linguistic generalizations.  ...  If, however, one considers language as a set of resources available to share and direct attention-part of a broader adaptation for collaborative activity and cultural life in general-then there is a wider  ...

Toward a Prototypical Model of Culture for Bible Translation

Thomas G. Matthews
2009 Journal of translation  
Bible translation is inherently a communication event originating in a historical language and culture.  ...  The cultural model is productively applied to a survey of translation issues rooted in the target cultures of several language teams in eastern Africa, and to three, in-depth analyses from Zinza and Digo  ...  From a cognitive linguistic perspective, the results for the CONTAINER image schemas add to the ongoing discussion of constraints on the universality of image schemas and more generally conceptual metaphors  ...

Why Chinese International Students Gamble: Behavioral Decision Making and its Impact on Identity Construction

Wendy Li, Samson Tse, Mark David Chong
2013 International Journal of Mental Health and Addiction  
The findings revealed that pre-existing beliefs and experiences, and various cultural schemas were closely linked to the participants' decision making processes.  ...  The participants assigned to themselves extremely negative self-images, for example, 'unfilial', 'unworthy', 'worthless', 'prisoner', 'a burden', 'hopeless' and so on, that dominated their whole sense  ...  To that end, the theories of identity, acculturation and cultural schema will be employed as conceptual frameworks for our analysis.  ...

2021 Translation Studies: Theory and Practice  
Saroyan's fiction with special reference to the analysis of their pragmatic value and both cross-cultural and cross-language identification.  ...  To keep Saroyanesque identity the translators should primarily transform the ideas, the concepts, the ethnic mentality of the characters, then the language media should undergo certain pragmatic modification  ...  My life has been a full and righteous one. Let's not give it another thought. I have land, vines, trees, cattle, and money. One cannot have everything -except for a day or two at a time.  ...

Ontology algebra for composition of protein data sources

Amandeep S. Sidhu, Tharam S. Dillon, Elizabeth Chang
2007 2007 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine Workshops  
In this paper we discuss Protein Ontology (PO) Algebra that we use for composition and interoperability of protein data sources.  ...  Most biological resources available today on the web provide a good number of cross-links to other resources with relevant information.  ...  At a more conceptual level, the information that is used and generated by life scientists, including chemical pathways, annotated gene sequences, and protein structures, is highly connected in nature.  ...

Hungarian gyerekestül vs. gyerekkel ('with [the] kid')

István Fekete
2014 Hungarian Cultural Studies  
It is suggested that the sociative is based on the amalgam image schema which is derived from the LINK schema of the comitative.  ...  The ironical reading of the sociative is an implicature in the sense of Grice (1989) and Sperber and Wilson (1987).  ...  In other words, image schemas build the basis of conceptual representations and help to associate percepts to concepts.  ...
