## The linguistic picture of values in Polish and Russian wishes sent via postcards

### Daniel Dzienisiewicz

#### Abstract

The present work aims to reconstruct and compare the linguistic images of values contained in the texts of Polish and Russian-language wishes sent via postcards in the second half of the 20th century. The main research questions posed by the author of the work concern the hierarchy of values emerging from the wishes, their linguistic conceptualization as well as similarities and differences in conceptualizations due to sociolinguistic factors, such as the type of holiday, gender of the interaction partners and the type of relationship between them. The conclusions drawn from the research do not aspire to be conclusive on the role of axiological concepts in the image of the world of Poles and Russians. However, they show a significant fragment of the linguistic image of the world of values contained in an ethnolinguistically relevant textual material. The presented considerations may supplement the comparative analyses concerning the semantics of the names of values in Slavic languages. The present research is conducted within the framework of cognitive ethnolinguistics and contributes to parallel and comparative research on the values of Slavic linguistic and cultural communities.
