Stimulus «Ukraine» and Associative-Semantic Field of Students’ Mental Lexicons

Keywords: association, free chain experiment, mental lexico, gestalt, individual mental models.

Abstract

The purpose of the article is to make an aspectological review of the scientific literature with a regard to the level of study the concept “Ukraine”, as well as to describe the data obtained as a result of a free associative experiment directed on studying of the individual models of students’ mental lexicon, paying attention to its structural features of expression and varieties of semantic-meaning zones, on the basis of which to make suggestions on the importance of the development of future specialists’ reflective associative thinking in the social and communicative sphere of the system “man-man.”

Methods. There were used such general scientific methods such as: a) the analysis of the domestic and foreign psycholinguistic sources and motivation of theoretical approaches; b) systematization of the data of theoretical analysis on the level of problem elaboration that has been declared and specification of the basic approaches and principles; c) generalization of the results of theoretical analysis in relation to scientific approaches; d) the analysis of the experimental data, its systematization and description; e) modeling of the factual material, which evidences the base of the conclusions. Among the partial methods it was used the widely applied method of free associative experiment, its chain variant, on the basis of which were determined the individual mental models, its varieties and semantic-semantic zones.

The results of the study testify to the unique specificity of the individual mental spheres and reactions of the recipients. Experimental material confirms that individual speech, on the basis of which the mental lexicon of the individual is formed and developed, is not just a system of formal signs for interaction and communication: it simultaneously represents the verbal intellect of the native speaker, his system of ideological values, emotional and evaluative palette of reaction; it is the representative of his psyche, experience, erudition, verbal memory and the quality of its reproduction.

Conclusions. Indirectly through the different VMs and associative ranks, we make a generalization that the verbal-associative memory field in recipients is formed and actualized to a different extent, as well as the higher mental functions, which confirms the relevance of the study of verbal consciousness of the personality of future specialist in the process of professional development.
