Abstract:

Central to the study is the core of the linguistic consciousness of the Bulgarians. On the basis of published comparable data from association experiments among the native speakers of several Slavic languages (mainly Bulgarian, Russian and Polish), analyses are made that outline the ethnocultural specifics in building the picture of the world. Having in mind that linguistic consciousness is a dynamic structure, the most significant concepts for the Bulgarian linguistic consciousness for a given period are ranked. Special attention is paid to the anthropocentrism and the egocentric reticence of the Bulgarian worldview. The analysis of the data according to various parameters shows a general positive attitude of the Bulgarians to the world. The analysis is based on the methodology presented in the works of the representatives of the Moscow ethnopsycholinguistics, mostly in the works of N. V. Ufimtseva.
