Cognitive interpretation in the studies devoted to the construction of the world by means of language

Abstract: 

The features, characterizing the division of linguistic reality by people, manifest themselves in the peculiarity of their languages. However, general patterns of the ways humans understand the world are determined by their physiological and psychological characteristics. Human interaction with the surrounding reality results in constructing the models of the world at conceptual and linguistic levels. One of the ways to study the conceptual content of language is a technique of cognitive interpretation of the data which makes it possible to understand the differences between knowledge formats, their modeling, and clarification of their structure as well as the features of their objectification in language.

Key words: 

cognitive interpretation, construction of the world, model of the world, conceptualization, categorization, mental representation.
