Phraseology, Unit, Component Light, Culture, Language


Purpose: To conduct lexical and semantic analysis on the concept light in the artistic discourse of postmodern fiction.

Methodology: In this research, comparative method, search for synonyms, continuous sampling and seminal analysis are used.

Main Findings: As a result, it becomes obvious that the boundaries of the artistic concepts are extremely blurred and much wider than the boundaries of the corresponding non-artistic concepts. In conclusion, the concept light is frequently used in English artistic discourses, i.e. significant in the culture, and a special status in the semantic space of the concept light has the meaning of knowledge and information.

Applications: The study results can be used by students and universities.

Novelty/Originality: In this research, a model of the semantic features of the phraseological units with the component light is presented in a comprehensive and complete manner.
