Philology Matters


The article deals with the relationship bet­ween the newly emerged and fast developing corpus linguistics as a research methodology and the sphere of linguoculturology. The language corpora are regarded as the source of examples representing cultural notions in the process of creating conceptual frames. In particular, the results of corpus analysis have been based on the modern English corpora as “COCA” and “BNC”. The examples related to the application of the notion of “family” have been analyzed by means of several searches through the concordance on the corpus platform. In order to make the final conclusions, the gathered results have been analyzed empirically. Moreover, three hundred adjectives mostly preceding the word “family” have been underlined, and their collocational meanings have been clarified in a wider context.
