The Semantic Field Theory as Applied to Phraseology

Zulfiia Fazlyeva


The article deals with the field method on the whole and as applied to phraseology in particular. Adaptation of semantic field into phraseology sphere is made necessary by the analysis needed within the frames of specified microsystems. Productivity and systematic description of field method may serve alternative to other methods of comparative research. The lexico-semantic system represents combination of semantic fields, with hierarchic structure. On the one hand it provides for the integration into the bigger spheres of lexicon, on the other hand the inclusion into inner structure of the micro-field with not so numerous units. The semantic fields are interconnected and the structure of their boundaries is comparative. Nowadays “a semantic field” term is widely used in the sphere of phraseology as well. Phrase-semantic field can be further subdivided into micro-fields and the last into groups. Such a division is aroused by heterogeneity of the language material examined.
