Abstract


The article deals with the use of zoonyms in Russian and Azerbaijani languages. It is noted that the asymmetry of sign is vividly presented in sphere f zoonyms that is logical in terms of man’s learning a surrounding world. Representations of animals form stable cognitive models, one way or another characterizing the mentality of various nations. One animal can provide different and even contradictory connotations of thinking and psychology of various nations. Comparison of the Russian and Azerbaijani languages in this aspect has never been conducted. Meanwhile, the importance of such a study does not give rise to doubt, especially in terms of modern cognitive linguistics. Research shows that the Azerbaijani language has experienced and continues to experience a strong influence of the Russian language in the comprehension of animal images. If the Azerbaijani language does not create parallels, then it borrows Russisms. Especially this phenomenon is characteristic of conversational speech.
