Philology Matters


Interdisciplinary approach is one of the important features of gender analysis as it can be studied in any field of science. The study of a language as an object of intercultural communication and the problems of the interdependence of a language, culture, and consciousness are of great importance in linguistics. The study deals with the general concept of phraseological units, which is reflected in the expression of the linguocultural means that arise in social events and serve for the specific national communicative process of society, both of which illuminate the national-cultural values of society the people. Indeed, a comparative analysis of gender in phraseological units based on cognitive and linguocultural approaches provides an opportunity for a linguistic analysis of the national mentality specifics to a particular society. The study of the national-cultural problems in the phraseological system can be explained by the attention and interest in the problem of “Language and Culture” in recent years, as well as the development of modern linguistics in the anthropological paradigm. Given the close connection of a language with a human being, the need to apply the theory of anthropological linguistics to the phraseological system, aimed at studying his/her consciousness, worldview, spiritual and practical activities, is natural and important. Although the gender analysis of phraseology and proverbs of the Uzbek language enables us to observe the peculiarities of androcentrism, weakening androcentrism during the study suggests that masculinity does not completely prevail in the phraseological layer of the language. In phraseology, the superiority of a negative value over a positive one can be attributed not to the gender factor but the perception of truth by humanity, it is accepted as a positive norm, so it is not fully reflected in the language. The negative features are expressed in a language as an unacceptable norm in society.
