A Contrastive Study on Cultural Connotations of Basic Color Words Between English and Chinese,英语论文英汉基本颜色词的文化内涵差异

摘要作为语言词汇系统中的一员,颜色词是非常特殊的,它不仅是物体的固有色,而且是一种具有文化代表的语言。由于东西方不同的文化背景,地理条件和历史过程,在翻译颜色词时通常会发生跨文化交际失败和误解。因此,对汉语和英语的基本颜色词的文化内涵进行对比研究是很有必要的。本文通过比较法对基本颜色词的英汉文化内涵进行分析,并探讨颜色词在英汉文化中存在差异的原因。希望本文能对词汇的跨文化研究提供一些借鉴。39486

Abstract As a member of the language vocabulary system, color words are very special. It is not only the inherent color of the objects, but a cultural representation. Due to different cultural backgrounds, geographic conditions and historic processes between English and Chinese, failures and misunderstanding often occur in the cross-cultural communication when we translate the color words. Therefore, a contrastive study on cultural connotations of basic words between Chinese and English is of much importance. This paper analyzes the cultural connotations of the basic color terms between Chinese and English by the contrastive method, and discusses the causes for cultural non-equivalences. Hopefully this paper will be beneficial to the cross-cultural research of vocabulary.

A Contrastive Study on Cultural Connotations of Basic Color Words Between English and Chinese

I. Introduction

Color is the perception of people to the objective world. Color is also a visual perceptual phenomenon that enables people to distinguish the objects which have the same size, shape, and material. However, there are different perceptions of color words in different cultures. The colors people see are predetermined by what their cultures prepare them to see. Like other words, color words have connotative meanings as well as denotative meanings. They have strong national cultural character. With the rapid development of society, more and more cross-culture communications between China and the western countries occur all the time. However, different geographic conditions, the background of politics and economy, the ways of thinking, religious beliefs, traditional customs, psychology and some other reasons result in different cultural associations in Chinese and English. Based on all kinds of possible reasons considered above, misunderstanding and mistranslation occurs now and then and serious problems have even been caused in communications. Thus a contrastive study on connotations of basic color words in Chinese and English cultures is becoming more and more significant. By the contrastive study on cultural connotation of basic terms between English and Chinese, we can know more about what is going on in people’s mind, in their languages and culture, which can not only broaden our vision, but also provide attributions to the research of lexicology. 英汉基本颜色词的文化内涵差异:http://www.lwfree.cn/yingyu/20190925/39793.html
