ЧТО ВИДИТ СЛЕПОЙ И СЛЫШИТ ГЛУХОЙ: К ЛЕКСИЧЕСКОЙ ТИПОЛОГИИ СЛОВ ДЛЯ ОТСУТСТВИЯ ЧУВСТВЕННОГО ВОСПРИЯТИЯ
The article deals with the semantics of English adjectives ‘blind’ and ‘deaf’ within a broader typological project. We analyze the main classes of their literal uses, as well as the patterns of metonymical and metaphorical shifts. Some morpho-syntactic properties of these two lexemes are also considered. The discussion touches upon the contribution of our data to a theoretical discussion on how different perception types are hierarchically structured by human language.
