Automation In Cognitive Linguistics: The Case Of Old Slavonic And Old Church Slavonic Literary Texts
The article considers the case of one particular research in the border field between cognitive linguistics and lexical semantics, namely the study of conceptual opposition “us – them”, as exemplified in the Old Slavonic and the Old Church Slavonic literary texts. The researcher faces the problem of processing of hundreds of lexemes, and it is of first need to automate this activity. In the article the way of dealing with that issue is proposed. The program that provides the researcher with the form that they can fill and thus get a full description of a lexeme is described. The fulfillment of this form takes half the time a researcher needs to analyze the lexeme themselves. Thus the program proves its efficiency.
