Abstract
The article proposes a project of a psycholinguistic dictionary of phonosemantically marked (sound - symbolic) vocabulary of modern Russian literary language. The dictionary project has an interdisciplinary character and is conducted at the of linguistics and psychology, which allows us to consider the language unit (lexeme) in the light of the indications of language consciousness. The author has found that the phonetic shell of a word has a certain effect on the modification of its semantics and the nature of speech functioning through experimental research and data analysis using digital technologies. This causes a number of difficulties in the dictionary representation of sound-symbolic lexemes, in particular, the need to take into account such an important component of their meaning as phonosemantic connotations. Phonosemantic connotations are understood as additional meanings that are superstructured in relation to the lexical content of a word and are determined by its sound. The article analyses different types of correlation between the sound shell of an idiophone and its denotation/ connotation, including those in which the sound shell of a word has independent significance and “suppresses” lexical semantics; the phonetic significance of a word contradicts its lexical semantics. Reliance on data from the experimental series using digital technologies (electronic program VAAL) helps to get a more detailed understanding of the phonetic meaning of the word, which is the basis of the dictionary project. The structure of the dictionary article is based on the identification of denotative, connotative and phonosemantic components in the interpretation, with the disclosure and detail of each of them. The proposed principle of describing the material allows us to trace the degree of denotative, connotative and phonosemantic components in the semantic structure of the word, as well as to identify nuclear and peripheral semes for native speakers.
