Abstract:The linguistic world image is a mental image of the world objects, phenomena and relations, based on the language knowledge of the speakers of a language. It is the perception of the world seen from the cultural perspective and interpreted according to daily experience, norms, and individual appreciations. This image is well-anchored in language and it becomes available only by means of the respective language. The proverbs are considered to be one of the basic “codes” of the culture, representing a “fragment” of the linguistic image of the world. This work analyses specific concepts of the Russian and Romanian languages and the ways the reflect upon the the proverbs of the two languages.
Key words:linguistic world image, mentality, culture, concept, proverb
