TAMIR, ss.1-3, 2014 (Diğer Kurumların Hakemli Dergileri)
The linguistic picture of the world, historically formed in the everyday consciousness of a given linguistic community and reflected in the language, a set of ideas about the world, a certain way of conceptualizing reality. Each natural language reflects a certain way of perceiving and organizing (conceptualizing) the world. The meanings expressed in it add up to a certain unified system of views, a kind of collective philosophy, which is imposed as mandatory on all native speakers. The way of conceptualizing reality peculiar to this language is partly universal, partly nationally specific, so that speakers of different languages can see the world a little differently, through the prism of their languages. On the other hand, the linguistic picture of the world is "naive" in the sense that in many essential respects it differs from the "scientific" picture.
