The word as an arbitrary and motivated sign. Naming. Types of motivation.

Motivation-is a direct connection between the word structure and its meaning. If the connection between this structure and the meaning is arbitrary and conventional, the words are described as non- motivated.e.gmater – is non-motivated,leader – motivated, because its morphological structure suggests the idea of leading and the doer of the action.

The process of motivation depends on the inner form of the word. The inner form is central point in the lexical meaning which helps to get inside in to the features chosen as the basis of nomination. In linguistics the term MOTIVATION is used to denote the relationship b/w the phonetic or morphemic composition & structural pattern of the word, on the one hand, & its meaning, on the other hand.

Morphological motivation implies a direct connection between the lexical meaning of the component morphemes, the pattern of their arrangement and the meaning of the word. The degree of morphological motivation may be different varying from the extreme of complete motivation to lack of motivation.The main criterion in morphological motivation is the relationship between morphemes. One-morphemed words are non-motivated. Ex – means «former» when we talk about humans ex-wife, ex-president. Re – means «again»: rebuild, rewrite. In borowed words motivation is faded: «expect, export, recover (get better)». Morphological motivation is especially obvious in newly coined words, or in the words created in this century. In older words motivation is established etymologically.The structure-pattern of the word is very important too: «finger-ring» and «ring-finger». Though combined lexical meaning is the same. The difference of meaning can be explained by the arrangement of the components.Morphological motivation has some irregularities: «smoker» – si not «the one who smokes», it is «a railway car in which passenger may smoke».

The degree of motivation can be different:«endless» is completely motivated,«cranberry» is partially motivated: morpheme «cran-» has no lexical meaning.Phonetical motivation implies a direct connection between the phonetic structure of the word and its meaning. Phonetical motivation is not universally recognised in modern linguistic science.Semantic motivation implies a direct connection between the central and marginal meanings of the word. This connection may be regarded as a metaphoric extension of the central meaning based on the similarity of different classes of referents denoted by the word.
