Abstract

The research study examined the metaphors of the Pentateuch of the English Orthodox Study Bible to define the individual author-specific metaphorical picture of the world. To conduct the study, the method of semantic and cognitive modelling of metaphorization, developed by Yu. V. Kravtsova, was employed. Based on contrastive analysis of the sacred Books of the Pentateuch, the megamodels, models and submodels of their author analogical and associative creative thinking have been identified. Metaphorical models have been interpreted in terms of the source and new denotative and notional spheres, and the semantic cognitive formant. The findings revealed the author-specific strategies of metaphoric world modelling. As a result, the peculiarities of the author’s individual metaphorical picture of the world have been described.
