Conceptual analysis in linguistics in early XXI century (pdf)

The article deals with the conceptual analysis as a complex of methods of concept analysis. The relevance of the attempt to structure the existing methods is proved by the infant stage of linguoconceptology in modern science. Modern linguistics has not offered a single classical method of conceptual analysis despite a number of works on concept methodology in home and foreign linguistics. The research has been made through the analysis of Ukrainian and Russian linguoconceptoloists’ works. Special attention has been paid to the influence of integration (the general scientific tendency). The article has considered the structure of the concept and has given examples of its analysis. The object of the analysis, which is at the same time one of the “entrances” into concept, has been clarified. The purpose of the analysis has been defined as concept modeling. Distribution of the methods of the conceptual analysis through scientific paradigms has been considered. The relative character of the conceptual analysis chosen and the type of the concept, the researches item of its structure and the researcher’s purpose has been studied. Possible trends of concept studies have been revealed. In general, the article has outlined a range of important issues of conceptual analysis: choice of methods, material researched, methods of structure study, optimal algorithm of concept analysis. The article may contribute to selecting the algorithm of the concept analysis. Conceptual analysis has prospects for further research, as some aspects of concept remain nonberbal.

Keywords: concept, conceptual analysis, concept methodology, analytical algorithm, linguoconceptology.
