1. Introduction to the Semantics of English Personal Names in the Cognitive Aspect 1.1 Defining Semantics and Cognitive Aspects The first sub-chapter of this coursework will explore the theoretical foundations that underpin the semantics of English personal names within the cognitive framework. To provide a comprehensive understanding of semantics, we will start by defining semantics as the study of meanings in language, focusing on the role of linguistic signs, symbols, and elements in the process of meaning-making. This will be followed by an explanation of cognitive aspects, which refer to the internal mental processes individuals use to perceive, think, remember, and understand language. 1.2 Significance of Semantics in Personal Names Next, the importance of semantics in English personal names will be emphasized, as names serve as more than just labels. Personal names represent identities, cultural and social aspects, and even historical ties. We will investigate the semantic content of personal names and the connotations they bear, as well as the socio-cultural factors that influence the naming process. 1.3 Categorization of English Personal Names This section will delve into various categorizations of English personal names while examining their semantic features. Here, we will discuss: - First/given names; - Middle names; - Last/family names; - Compound names and hyphenated names. By doing so, we aim to provide an overview of each category and analyze their semantic characteristics, which allows for a deeper understanding of their meaning and contribution to the cognitive aspect. 1.4 Etymological Roots and Naming Conventions As names carry cultural, geographic, and historical information, we will look at the etymological roots of various English personal names. This shall include an analysis of Old English, Middle English, and Modern English influences on the naming process, as well as the tracing of roots from other cultures, such as Norman and Celtic origins. By studying these diverse roots, we will be able to explore the impact of historical and cultural factors on name semantics in English. 1.5 Cognitive Processes in the Perception and Processing of Personal Names The final section of this sub-chapter will address the cognitive aspect, focusing on how individuals perceive, process, and understand the semantic meanings behind personal names. We will explore topics such as: - Memory and recognition of personal names; - Stereotypes and associations with names; - Cognitive biases in the interpretation of names. We will also discuss the role of linguistic and psychological factors in the perception and processing of personal names, as these factors can significantly impact the way individuals interact with, and understand, the semantics behind names.
