A TITLE AS A STRUCTURAL AND SEMANTIC CODE OF PUNCH SYNDROME BY DINA RUBINA

Abstract: 

The title semantics of Dina Rubina’s novel has a tendency to broadening, which can be observed on such levels as lexical and phraseological levels, a grammar level and a metaphorical level. The revelation of sense-forming content of the text component and its function in designing a novel structure give a special importance of a title in showing the mtaning and temper of the main character. Correlation of Punch (a folk character whose name is used in the title) with the image of the main character raises a doppelganger problem in the article. The title of this novel acts as its semantic code, which codifies in a capacious meta-phor "Punch syndrome". 

Key words: 

semantics, mythopoetics, folklore, doppelganger, metaphor.
