Bread. From Culture to Phraseological Imaginary

Publication: Philologica Jassyensia, VIII (2), p. 185-191
Publisher:Institutul de Filologie Română „A. Philippide”
Abstract:This paper represents an investigation from a cultural perspective of the Romanian phrasemes related to the image of bread. Many recent studies on phraseology argue that it can be an adequate description of the phraseological structures and the way they function in a language without regard to culture, since, in many cases, culturally based concepts govern the inference from literal to figurative. In this article, we intended to show the specific methods of the Romanian bread phrasemes to sensitise a representation or an attitude, as well as to identify the effects of the communication of primary mental forms, as related to regional and general patterns. This approach subsumes ethnolinguistics, providing an answer to Eugeniu Coşeriu’s (1996) challenge regarding the study of language from the perspective of culture’s universality and having in mind the various demands of linguistic research which, as compared to other subjects, entails the most numerous connections with man’s way of being and with all the human activities in general.
Key words:bread, ethnolinguistic approach, phraseological imaginary
