This research project aimed to study the metaphorical meaning of colour (conceptualizations and categorizations) within phraseological units in Albanian and German from a pluricentric perspective (inter- and intralinguistic variety). The work consisted of three phases: 1) identification of linguistic units containing colour terms in both languages and creation of an inventory (more than 400 units; basis for bilingual and bi-directional Albanian-German/German-Albanian vocabulary); 2) identification of diatopic variants and analysis of the ‘knowledge’ and ‘use’ of colour phraseology through interviews in Albania, Kosovo, Germany and Austria (a total of 298 interviews), taking into consideration social variables such as interviewees’ ‘origin’, ‘age’, ‘gender’ and ‘education’ (ages 15 and up); 3) contrastive analysis according to the Construction Grammar (GxC) – grammatical model of Cognitive Linguistics – of a specific type of phraseologisms, namely one with a fixed schema structure: [[X] (verb) like/as [Y]]. These analysed linguistic units were collected from the interviews.

Abstract

This research project aimed to study the metaphorical meaning of colour (conceptualizations and categorizations) within phraseological units in Albanian and German from a pluricentric perspective (inter- and intralinguistic variety). The work consisted of three phases: 1) identification of linguistic units containing colour terms in both languages and creation of an inventory (more than 400 units; basis for bilingual and bi-directional Albanian-German/German-Albanian vocabulary); 2) identification of diatopic variants and analysis of the ‘knowledge’ and ‘use’ of colour phraseology through interviews in Albania, Kosovo, Germany and Austria (a total of 298 interviews), taking into consideration social variables such as interviewees’ ‘origin’, ‘age’, ‘gender’ and ‘education’ (ages 15 and up); 3) contrastive analysis according to the Construction Grammar (GxC) – grammatical model of Cognitive Linguistics – of a specific type of phraseologisms, namely one with a fixed schema structure: [[X] (verb) like/as [Y]]. These analysed linguistic units were collected from the interviews.
