ABSTRACT

Choi Jina. 2012. A study on contents of figure based on cognitive linguists. Korean Semantics, 38. The purpose of this research is to develop course contents of figure based on cognitive linguistics. The existing course contents of figure in the Korean language education are limited to rhetorical aspects. That is, figure has been treated as the gloss on words and deviant expressions, limited to units that are not bigger than sentences. However, cognitive linguists focus on the conceptual properties of figure and characterize figure as a strategy of communication and the essential cognitive mechanisms which dominates human actions and thinking. These research based on cognitive linguistics has been widely accepted in visual media and related fields as well as Rhetoric and literature. Thus, this paper proposes new course contents to including figure in a new perspective, to fulfill the sociocultural demand and embrace the academic accomplishments in cognitive linguistics. This paper also devises not only a brief educational curriculum for figure but also units to specify it. The new course contents of figure include designing a persuasive writing strategy, using the metaphoric and metonymic properties : ‘highlighting’ and ‘hiding’. They are based on the idea that the conceptual aspects of metaphor and metonymy inevitably accompany ‘highlighting’ and ‘hiding.’
