Some Aspects of Psycholinguistic Associations of Pharmacy Students
The article analyzes the results of free associative experiment which was held among first year students (specialty “Pharmacy”) in 2015-2016 academic year. The authors define morphological and semantical groups of associations for the word-stimulus “Latin” which were received during the experiment, analyze syntagmatic and paradigmatic reactions of respondents, structure the given associative field. All associations can be divided semantically into general culture ones, ones connected with study process and ones which show emotional attitude towards the word-stimulus. The special attention is paid to emotionally coloured positive reactions as well as negative ones, because such type of connection is important while planning future work with students. Having noticed considerable quantity of reactions connected with hardships of study process and, besides, negative reactions of different expressiveness level, the authors doubt appropriateness of present distribution of study loading within Latin language learning for pharmacy students.
