The word-forming motivation for lexical innovations in the cognitive space (based on ukrainian- and english-speaking sources)

Keywords: word formation, lexical innovation, cognitive science, motivation, higher education, EFL.

Abstract

The cognitive space where lexical innovations have semantic content and are formed by word-formation innovations opens a broad research field. However, lexical innovations have their creation mechanisms, are sometimes not regular, and cannot carry semantic content outside of contexts and conventions. For this reason, it is relevant to consider effective means of working with both Ukrainian- and English-speaking materials during learning. It also requires appealing to present-day findings in cognitive science, comunicativism, and pragmatics. This research is aimed at establishing the effective use of motivational models as achievements of cognitive science while using innovative approaches to learning English and Ukrainian languages. This is an analysis of the effectiveness of involving word-formation motivation in the foreign languages' learning process to create lexical innovations from the standpoint of linguocognitivism theories. The research methodology is based on a complex approach: survey, observation, descriptive method, analysis, and synthesis. The experiment is a principal method. However, the evaluation of the new method's effectiveness was carried out using a survey at the final stage of the research. The leading research hypothesis assumes that using scientific achievements of modern cognitive science in foreign language teaching is an effective learning practice; applying models of word-formation motivation in lexical innovations translation is necessary for foreign language teaching.
