Abstract

The paper is devoted to metaphor as a syncretic way of representing of linguistic and cultural situation. The epochality is reviewed as a principle of metaphors functioning. It is a cognitive marker and a property of metaphor to emphasize belonging to a certain time by coding the perception of the epoch and the way of the interaction between the nationality and given reality. The mood of the epoch and the specificity of the worldview of the national cultural community within the framework of a given time transmit by means of determined metaphor. The metaphorical nomination appears as a form and means of expressing the national consciousness.
