Download an article

Grammatical category of old English nouns has transformed into a linguacultural category in modern English. Semantic analysis of the lexical meaning of nouns denoting human beings reveals the covert attitude of society to them. In modern English the attitude is mostly negative to both men and women. Semantic analysis of terms denoting fathers and mothers reveal new trends in the society, gender asymmetries, connotations and hidden implications.
