Abstract

ZAMFIRA MIHAIL (Bucharest, Romania) SYNONYMY IN THE B ULGARIAN SOCIAL-POLITICAL TERMINOLOGY IN USE IN THE LATTER HALF OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY Linguistics can make a significant contribution to mentality "decoding" only to the extent to which it penetrates the written text; in such an approach the examination of the alternating terms denoting one and the same concept affords fruitful conclu- sions as to the speakers' choice. In the present article the correla- tion between the social-political concepts and the terminology employed over the period from 1841 to 1876 has been considered in terms of the respective social movements in Bulgaria. Only the . terms denoting an"[armed] [large-scale] uprising aimed at the acquisition of liberty" have been investigated.
