Abstract

The article discusses the concepts of marriage and family represented in the Kazakh language by the lexemes «неке» and «отбасы». The article reveals the universal and national-specific features of these concepts. It uses fragments of psychological description of the socially significant, complex organizational structure of the target concepts, including psycholinguistic, cultural, social and experimental aspects. There are attempts in the article to formulate the content of the concepts of marriage and family according to the results of the direct and on-line survey conducted among the informants.The linguistic and cultural study of concepts is an actual direction in modern linguistics, since in this aspect one can consider the word in the context of cultural values. To achieve the objectives, the authors use the method of free associative experiment based on verbal associations of the subjects participating in the research, which with the identification of words-reactions to the words неке/marriage and отбасы/familymay contribute to revealing the peculiarities of the national linguistic awareness of Kazakh people.
